What we have for you…

It’s been 4 years since we started self-publishing and marketing books. We’ve made all of the mistakes, so you don’t have to!
Through 10 of our own books to date, and 50+ book marketing campaigns with other authors, we’ve learned a lot on our publishing journey.

We’re all about helping you reach new readers that will love your book. All of our guides and videos are designed with that goal in mind. I recommend starting with our ‘Before Publishing Your eBook Checklist’, then when you’re ready, move on to the book marketing guides: 77 Ways to Find New Readers and Fire Up Amazon.
All of this can be had for less than $15 and will serve you well on your publishing journey. We can also help with your author website through our WordPress author website template, Authorlicious.
