I wrote a book – now what?
If you’ve written your book, it has been professionally edited and designed, and it is totally ready for publication, we can assist with finalising files, uploading to Amazon and IngramSpark, and developing a strategy for getting your book into the hands of your readers and the wider market to best suit your overall objectives for this book.
If you’ve written a manuscript but have not finished it, or not yet had any of the professional editing or design work done, we’re going to direct you back to Just starting, but have a big idea. Keep reading to learn why.
Amazon Boost service
If you’ve already published your manuscript but you are unsure about uploading, or have done this and have seen that it’s underperforming on Amazon or not available where you hoped it would be (i.e. Book Depository, Nook, Barnes &Nobel, Kobo etc.), we can help. We start by re-launching your book, and reviewing all the listings and descriptions. We will also provide some guidance around using your social media to give it a good boost.
This also includes checking your keywords and categories, working on getting you some reviews, and monitoring your progress over a couple of weeks to drive your book up through the rankings on Amazon. We’ll also train you in reading your reports and continue to nudge your book along on a regular basis.
Our fee for this starts at $1500 for your first book. If you have some additional titles, we can include these for a further $850 each – if done collectively.
Please note – as part of our ongoing commitment to working with high-quality authors and books, we have a selection process for our Amazon Boost Service.
Let’s not assume anything – yet!
If you’ve written your book and think it’s ready for the production and publishing stage, but it has not yet had a professional review or been properly edited, we need to start at the beginning – because your book may not yet be ready for anything.
Think of it this way: a child who is ready to start school, but not yet able to feed himself or is still in toilet training, is not ready for Harvard. An unbroken horse is not ready to pull the Queen’s carriage. And Wilbur Wright could not fly a Spitfire, let alone a Boeing 747.
So let’s review what you’ve got, where you’re up to and what you’re trying to achieve. Then, with that perspective, we’ll work on a specific plan for you and your book.
