|BOOK-LAUNCH CONSULTING FOR SELF-PUBLISHING AUTHORS Share
As the paradigms in the book market continue to shift, I've been progressively frustrated by my inability to spend sufficient time with clients, and I'm sure they've shared my frustration!
After experiencing the torture of submission to the traditional publishers and the uncertainties of the marketplace even when publishers do get involved, more and more authors are, quite properly, taking their literary fates in their own hands and getting their books in front of readers by the most direct route possible. That means one form or another of direct-publishing—an honorable tradition, by the way, that goes all the way back to classical Greece.
Because of detail-intensive, experience-based challenges like this one, where we have much to offer, many ways we can help, Story Merchant is now offering a new "book launch service" for our self-published clients, where we coach, guard, and guide them through the marketing, platform-building, dealing with publicists, foreign rights, contests and awards, etc.
We're already doing it for several clients, who are finding it productive. Drop Dr. Atchity a line if you're interested, or visit our Career Coaching page.
We're very efficient with our use of time and frugal in billing against it, btw. We love giving your books the full attention they deserve, and are happy to have found a way to do so.
