Our mission: To bridge the gap between self-publishers and traditional publishing by applying proven strategies and techniques of successful independent publishers.
Our measure of success is determined by the success of our clients. We leverage our 10+ years of experience to produce a result that rivals or surpasses the quality of the majority of books self-published today. As the competition grows, the bar on quality continues to rise.
Our Bestseller Blueprint is the framework we've been continually refining since 2015. It's the 'secret sauce' that allows our authors to publish bestsellers, garner rave reader reviews, and in some cases produce 6-figure incomes.
The cornerstone of our evidence-based practice is AuthorDock, a web-based project accelerator designed to put a strategic plan into action and turn your vision into reality. More than just an issues tracker, it contains the core elements of accomplishment; deadlines, ownership, processes, metrics, and transparency. Everything is contained in a searchable & secure tool that provides instant access the data you need when you need it.
Building your platform and expanding your visibility online is accomplished through PubWriter, a search-engine optimized digital publishing framework that allows you to write locally and have your work published to your own website moments after you click save. As an author, you have an advantage over most businesses: a treasure trove of content. PubWriter helps you leverage that content to drive more clicks.
"Recently (Oct-2021), my combined royalties exceeded $12,000 (in a single month). I consider Brian a total pro at what he does, and I totally recommend him." ~ Terry Hodges, Author of the Warden Force Series
We provide publishing services to self-published authors and independent publishers. We specialize in working with authors who aim to educate, inform, while establishing themselves as thought leaders in their area of expertise. Our expertise covers platform building, reader reviews, marketplace setup, content marketing, search optimization, digital advertising, email marketing, social media management, audiobooks, and other trends in publishing. Embracing emerging technology demands working in the trenches continually, and we spend more time in the trenches than most publishers.
At some point in the journey from writer to publisher, an author discovers that the rewards in publishing a book are not measured in book sales or ranking alone, but in opportunities that arise from the book. Most of our clients realize a return on investment in hiring us comes through speaking, coaching, training, new investors, and related product sales. The book becomes an integral part of the growth plan for our clients (a primary lead generator via a book funnel). The book becomes the foundation of a platform that puts the author in a Thought Leader position with the benefits of credibility and authority.
The ever-expanding complexity of book publishing & marketing is a full-time job. Delegating ownership to us reduces your time-to-market. We want you to stay focused on the core activities to build your business. Rather than hire a part-time or full-time employee, we fill the gap by acting as your agent in the most critical areas tied to your book's success.
Instead of keeping a share of your book royalties as a publisher would, we charge a fee that varies depending on the extent of services you hire us to perform. As both the author & publisher, you retain 100% of the proceeds from your book and all the benefits. We set up your seller accounts and you get paid directly from each marketplace or distributor (i.e. Amazon, Google, Apple, Ingram) who sells your book or eBook globally.
"I've been working with Brian Schwartz and his team since 2013. Over the years, he's expanded his value and stepped up to assist me in whatever technical challenge I faced. I'd highly recommend Brian and his team for your next project. He is trustworthy, loyal, has high integrity, and I know that anything he recommends is always in our best interests." ~ Rorion Gracie, Author of The Gracie Diet and Founder of the UFC
