Overview

At every stage in the writing and publishing process there are many options and possible courses of action. Sometimes there are so many 'what ifs' we can suffer a debilitating case of analysis/paralysis through fear of making a costly error.

Do you need a mentor?

Do you need advice to create the perfect book launch and ongoing marketing strategy?

I've walked the path to become one of Amazon's best-selling self-published authors and learnt the lessons so you don't have to...

Our Philosophy… The principle we live by is “have integrity and add value”. One of the reasons for our publishing success is an unwillingness to settle for second best and to demand high standards from ourselves. If you use our services to help you publish your book, you’ll receive the same care and attention we give to our own books.

After forming my own successful publishing company using only the tools that Amazon P.O.D. offer, I am in the perfect place to advise and mentor you through every challenge and question you may have on your journey as a writer.

Francesca Baird
Joseph offered clarity in terms of how to market my book and how to structure my approach. He was very helpful and even brought in his experienced partner to offer a different (but equally valuable) perspective. Joseph has demonstrated a willingness to support me beyond our initial meeting. Will definitely be working with Joseph again. Francesca
