Assisted Self-Publishing / Publishing Coaching

If you already have a completed manuscript and want to get it published this may be the service for you. It can be challenging to get a traditional publishing deal, and maybe you have already tried - or maybe you just want to have the control (and 100% of the profits) to yourself. I can provide one-to-one advice on which route to publication is best for YOU and help you become a published author through getting that book to market. I can provide a range of services to help you get the best book possible out there - for example:

  • Providing advice on your project and how best to achieve your aims - for example the type of publishing, pricing, shape & size of your book, and routes to market (online vs shops vs sales at events)
  • Editing (developmental, copy and proof)
  • Providing Typesetting and Layout service

  • Cover design (see separate page on this)

  • Put you in contact with illustrators (if required)

  • Help set up an online selling platform (inc tax forms)

  • Explain how Print on Demand (POD) and ebooks work

  • Provide contacts/explain process for printing books

  • Assistance and advice on book launch

  • Advice on marketing your books and the business of being an author

As a publishing coach I will work hand-in-hand with you to provide as much or as little support you need. I have many years experience in this field and am able to quickly and easily help make your book look professional and eye-catching - giving it the best chance of success. I can either work on an hour basis, or have a 'publishing package' which allows you to work to a budget. In the first instance just get in touch for a free informal chat and I can provide you with an estimate to consider. 

I can provide customer testimonials on request.
