⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Each meeting with him included smiles and laughs AND a healthy dose of useful knowledge and tools that I could walk away with and put to use right then. Can you research and study this stuff yourself? Sure. But having someone do this for you, and give you actionable steps to take is invaluable. He saved me a lot of time. And time is money."

- Dan and Tara M. - Writer of Post Apocalyptic Novels - NYT Best-Selling Author with over 20 books on Amazon


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "“I chose Denis because he has a wealth of knowledge and has a way of coming at it more like a friend… I recommend anyone who wants to succeed in this business to take a chance and work with Denis. He has been a huge help in all of my success”

- Avery M. - Best Selling Author of "Broken Heart Series"
(Selling over 200 copies per month with over 849 reviews on her books)


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "“I’ve read a ton of books, taken several courses, and hired different consultants and none of them quite worked for me until I met Denis”

- Wes L. - Thriller Author


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ " This was my first novel and I had zero experience with how to manage this situation. Denis provided incredible value for my project. He provided structured teaching that walked me through every step of this process. And when there were questions that I had or items that I was unclear on, I would drop Denis a line and he again was able to get me back on track. My novel was released on November 10th. I ended up achieving Amazon bestseller status and Denis' guidance was a major reason for that. Thank you Denis!!!”

- AJ I. - Thriller Author.

Work experience

Lead Book Promoter / Owner

Self-employed
June, 2018 – Present (over 3 years)

Denis has coached new authors and NYT best selling authors alike to find new readers for their books.

You can regularly find him through his speaking engagements, articles, Facebook group (2,200+ members strong), and YouTube channel.

His core beliefs with his coaching include:

-- Authenticity: Comfortable expressing yourself in a way that’s true to your own unique personality, values, and beliefs.
-- Systematic: Getting clarity and avoiding feeling overwhelmed by breaking down big goals into small steps.
-- Perseverance: Recognizing that big goals require big effort. Moving forward despite roadblocks or setbacks.

Projects

3x in sales, 4x increase in book ratings

Peter came to me feeling overwhelmed and without a clear action plan to connect his book with readers.

After one month of coaching and direction - we updated his cover for under $100, optimized his blurb, categories, and keywords. We also started running advertising to his book.

The results?

His ratings increased from 16 to 65 rating and his sales shot up 3-fold!

He is now writing his next books and applying the same lessons to replicate the success.

Optimized Categories and Keywords

Mark Q came to me knowing that categories and keywords were important but not confident on how to find them. Together, we used best practices and found 8 US-based eBook categories that his book fit into. We then found an additional 6 for the UK market.

What did this get him?

Best-seller in two categories!

And another writing achievement he can show off.

Goal: Gain exposure for new author in mystery genre

We worked together over three 1-hour sessions to update and improve her cover, description, and started Amazon ads. We also worked to improve her website to capture email addresses and build her following. Since she was in KDP Select, we worked together to organized a price promotion where her book would be discounted temporarily to reach a new audience.

Results: Her book was downloaded 3,625 times in ONE DAY! and jumped up to #45 on all of Kindle. She added dozens of emails to her list and grew her following to prepare for an even better launch of her second book.

2592.66% increase in page reads in just 4 months

Avery knew she had a great book but it wasn't gaining any traction. She had spent hours posting in Facebook groups, doing newsletter swaps, and reaching out to bloggers, all with little to no success.

After one coaching session, we had built her a new custom marketing plan that fit her budget and genre.

Within four months, she saw her income and sales skyrocket.

Her page reads increased from 6.454 (June 2020) to 173,784 (Sept 2020).

Along with her sales, she made almost $1,400 with just two books and now has over 500 ratings on just one of her books!

Peter McKelvie
I learned a lot from Denis in a short period of time. His ideas were practical and easy to implement, as well as effective in reaching the outcomes I was seeking in marketing my first book. I would really recommend Dennis as a must-have coach for new authors, and a great support mentor/coach for experienced authors. I will definitely use Dennis again.
