I help make it easy for bloggers and other content creators to self-publish nonfiction books that will help them build instant authority and credibility, establish them as thought leaders, and more.
I share with you lots of actionable information that you can apply to all aspects of your own book publishing - from writing, editorial, production, design, selling, and book marketing - AND provides practical tips, guidance, and strategies to help new and experienced authors sell more books for years to come.
Who Is My Podcast For?
My podcast is specifically for those that are hoping to self-publish non-fiction as a way to enhance their current business and career. For example, you might be a business owner hoping to show the world that you are an expert in a very particular niche. Or a chef that specializes in pastries.
Or, a licensed medical professional, or lawyer, etc., that is trying to attract new business by writing a book about a particular specialty. We all know that a simple business card, a tri-fold brochure, and a resume, don’t cut it anymore. But, a well-written book can become an amazing and very powerful way to stand out from the crowd of “experts”.
Feedspot has chosen us as one of the "top 25 book marketing podcasts to follow" in 2021.
