Author - From plan to publication day and beyond
Investment: 6 monthly payments of £2,000
This is my exclusive, all in inclusive programme. I only accept three Authors per year to ensure I have the time each one deserves.
We work together on your messy draft, and then I take care of the rest of it (from the cover to publication and more), while checking in with you as necessary. This programme is for the author who values what investing in their book will bring to them and their business, but who doesn't have the time to manage the whole project and deal with all the details. I'll be your editor, project manager, launch strategist and more.
If you'd like to learn more about Author and get a feel for whether or not we're a good fit for working together, book your complimentary one-to-one workshop - in just two hours, we'll pin down your book topic and working title! Either book now, or keep scrolling to see all the details.
*Note: your only additional cost will be purchasing your ISBN numbers - this is to ensure you maintain your intellectual property rights as ISBN numbers are non transferrable.
We'll work together to outline your book. Then, I'll be with you every step of the way as you quickly write your messy draft. How we do this depends on how you work best. We could meet in person or online for 3 to 4 full days of writing, or online for a few hours a week over several weeks. You might write in the usual way (typing in a Google Doc or Word document) or by talking through your draft while we let otter.ai transcribe what you say. Or a combination of these options. This is a bespoke service, so we will work in the way that is easiest and most productive and efficient for you.
I'll clean up your messy draft and work with you to fill any holes I find in the manuscript - this is in preparation for sending it to your beta readers. In short, I'll turn it into a reader-friendly book!
We'll work together to identify appropriate beta readers. Then I'll contact them and manage all communication with them - including sending your draft to them for feedback.
We'll discuss your beta readers' feedback and then I'll apply any changes we agree to make to your manuscript.
Since I'll be too close to your book by this point to proofread it accurately, I'll send it to one of my proofreaders for a final polish and then review their changes.
I'll liaise with an experienced cover designer to produce sample covers for your approval. Then, I'll work with them to finalise the cover.
I'll work with you to identify appropriate early reviewers and send ARCs (advance reader copies) to them, manage correspondence, and collect their reviews. I'll also work with you to engage your current audience and build it with a lead magnet (sample chapters) ahead of your publication day. This will help you build your book launch team.
Once we have a sufficient number of reviews on your Amazon author page and elsewhere, I'll put your book on 3 key book promotion sites. This will increase sales and your author profile.
Note: Your £8000 fee covers everything listed here, but you will need to purchase your own ISBNs (£174). I cannot do this for you because ISBNs are non-transferable & I insist that my authors retain all of their intellectual property rights.
