The publishing industry is changing. Did you know independent authors wrote 40% of Amazon’s top-selling books last year? Considering that self-published authors have royalty rates up to 10x higher than traditionally published authors, you can make exponentially more money as an indie author than ever before--especially with a team of qualified marketers and publishing consultants.

• Advised 90+ books that became New York Times, Amazon, and USA Today bestsellers.

Working with Arley and the team has been seamless, and Arley responds to any request promptly. It has been an enjoyable experience. Although I did not achieve the results I was aiming for, I feel several factors contributed to this., A first book release with a new pen name and a deliberately provocative title, and the time of year, we found many bloggers' schedules were already full in the ...

The only thing that seemed to click was the billing, that came on a regular basis without fail, and determined who the real winner in this transaction was -- hint: it wasn't me.

Arley was incredibly professional and passionate about my book. I can tell that she spent a lot of time doing research for a wide variety of things, some of which I didn't even know about. I absolutely loved working with her, and I can't wait to continue our working relationship with more projects.

Arley and Lexi were amazing to work with. Spectacular and professional. At the very least got me on several sponsored newsletters which would never have happened without them. I'm going to hire again for my next book without a question. They're great!
