1 year publishing timeline
Most authors are pretty capable of writing, but feel either overwhelmed or uninterested when it comes to the rest of it. My signature 1 Year Timeline shows you how to get your book finished, published, and selling in the next 12 months. It's a great way to understand the scope of what it means to write a book, and all the puzzle pieces that go into making it happen -- and making it happen well.
I will walk you through every step of the independent publishing process, guiding you to the best professionals for your needs and helping you manage the nitty-gritty details like ISBN #’s and Amazon’s publishing interface. Save yourself a ton of time, money, and aggravation by having an expert around to bounce ideas off of and point you in the right direction. I'll explain all of your options for publishing and marketing, then help you think through which fits your goals, budget, and time, and help you decide where to put your energy & focus.
"Scott's guidance is worth it's weight in gold. I am so grateful to have had access to his knowledge about writing, shopping out and publishing a book. He had valuable information every step of the way. I could not have crossed the publishing finish line without him."
-- Catia Hernandez Holm, author of The Courage To Become: Stories of Hope for Navigating Love, Marriage and Motherhood & TEDx speaker
arc marketing campaigns
Traditional publishers have been sending out Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) for decades to help author get reviews and build buzz months in advance of their publication date. Until recently, this has been almost impossible for independent authors to pull off. With the advent of Print On Demand, that has changed. Now, any author can print ARCs and manage an advance review campaign to launch their book with a bang. The challenge now is how to do it well. I have a proven formula to help you get 20+ reviews of your book posted on Amazon within 7 days of publication. This is one of the most powerful things you can do to help your book succeed.
"Scott's support during the writing and publishing of my first book was just what I needed. His ARC review campaign was the cherry on top! He knew exactly what needed to happen and saved me from a ton of stress. I'm just a few months out from my publishing date and now have over 50 legitimate reviews of my book on Amazon. His system is proven and I cannot recommend him enough as a book coach - definitely someone you want to have on your team!"
