Q. Who is Stress Free Book Marketing ?
Stress Free Book Marketing was created by Rick and Lori Lite to help other authors navigate through all of the steps involved in self-publishing and book marketing. Since 2003 Rick and Lori have gained valuable knowledge, experience and success publishing, distributing and marketing their own titles with both traditional publishers and by self-publishing. They believe authors should have creative ownership and control over their content, design, printing, marketing and how they get paid.
Q. What makes you different than others?
Similar to a traditional publisher, we work with authors through the entire publishing process. We differ from others by self-publishing the author’s book for them. This way the author has creative input, retains all of the rights to their book, and earns all of the revenues from sales.
We also go above and beyond what most traditional and other self-publishers do to make sure that the author has the best chance of being successful. From the first conversation all the way through the publishing process, we take the time to think about what’s in the author’s best interest. We work closely with the author to make sure their book is set up properly and thoroughly with the printer, the proper book agencies, and with the appropriate distributors and resellers.
Since most traditional publishers are not responsible for marketing books, we also offer a robust marketing and advanced book distribution program. These custom designed programs compliment each other, and are an added value to our self-publishing program. We use the same strategies to help authors that we used to create our successful publishing company, Stress Free Kids.
Rick and Lori pride themselves on having excellent communication and quality service. They treat each author with respect and appreciation, and will do everything possible to have a mutually rewarding experience.
