Is our Self-Publishing Support right for you?

If you have a book manuscript that is ready for publishing and want the benefits of self-publishing without the learning curve of tackling it alone, we can help. Our team can assist you every step of the way, ensuring you bring your book to life with professionalism and precision. Experience the freedom and fulfillment of self-publishing with confidence knowing we can help bring your vision to reality.

  • You are a business owner (or seek to be) and want to use a book to build or grow your business.
  • You have a skillset that people demand, and you’d like to utilize your book as another offering to complement your efforts.
  • You are a speaker (or plan to be) and would find it valuable to have a book to sell to attendees of your engagements.
  • You are not willing to give up control of your intellectual property and want to remain with full ownership of your content and book.
  • You are looking to get your book out to the masses quickly but with professional quality, too.
  • You want to retain all the royalties from book sales, but are willing to invest in expert support to bring your book to life.
  • You want to ensure that your book is poised for success from the beginning, with marketing as a forethought, not an afterthought.
  • Your manuscript is in need of a developmental edit. (While we offer a developmental marketing evaluation, this is not the same as a developmental edit.) If you are still working on your manuscript, come back to us when it’s near final or inquire how we can support you in getting your manuscript to this stage.
  • You don’t have clarity on who needs your book, who will buy it and the value it offers. Knowing your target audience is important.
  • You aren’t willing to collaborate in the self-publishing support process. The greatest success occurs when we work together.
  • You just want a team to execute; you don’t want to learn along the way. While we will be executing, you will be responsible for your book after publishing.

Frequently Asked Questions

There isn’t only one way to publish a book. There are several ways, actually! And as with most things in life, there are pros and cons to each. Publishing, unfortunately (and fortunately), isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach which is why I recommend authors do their research and homework. Episode 3.6 of The emPowered Author Podcast highlights some of the considerations when evaluating what the best option is for you and your book. While we love self-publishing, only you can determine the best publishing approach for you.

We utilize two print-on-demand (POD) publishing options in this package: Amazon’s KDP platform and IngramSpark. Most people purchase books on Amazon and utilizing their POD services unlocks some features we love, so we always start there. However, libraries and bookstores prefer IngramSpark, so we utilize that platform for global distribution.

If you’d like to offer a pre-order, Amazon’s KDP platform allows for eBooks to be set up for a pre-order offer. Our team can build that into your production schedule if you’d like. From a marketing perspective, we are a big fan of eBook pre-orders!

It depends! Upon inquiry, we will evaluate timing capacity with each of our team members and create a production schedule that works for all. This could be anywhere from 3-6 months depending upon scheduling.

Your manuscript should be ready to send to an editor for us to get started. While your manuscript is being edited, however, you can still gather front and back matter for the book (such as endorsements, dedication, about the author, etc.). You should also have your author headshot complete (or at least scheduled) and have a good idea of your book’s title and subtitle. If you don’t feel like your manuscript is quite ready for this package or you are unsure, we’d be happy to do a Developmental Marketing Evaluation for you and consider if additional consulting support would be beneficial.

This publishing package does not include any printed copies of your book, just the publishing process of it. The beauty of self-publishing, however, is that you will get the opportunity to purchase author copies of your book at a steep discount utilizing the POD platforms, and we walk you through how to do that.

We think you do! A publishing imprint is a name under which you self-publish your book. While there isn’t a requirement to have this, an imprint definitely ups your credibility. While self-publishing is amazing and has so many benefits, some readers, media outlets, bookstores and more have an unfair stigma about self-publishing and using an imprint helps curb that. At the end of the day, great books are self-published, and yours will be amazing!
