Author Consulting Services
Author consulting or author coaching is when you meet with an experienced publisher to talk about the road ahead to get your book published and what changes you can make for your project to be successful.
What we talk about is up to you. Some people come to us with specific questions on how to market their book and which platforms would be best to use. Others are coming to the end of the writing stage of their books and are unsure on how to proceed from there. Whether you need specific information and tools in your hand or guidance on the polishing of your manuscript, we are here for you to help you see your finished book between two covers and in your readers’ hands.
Contact us for an estimate. Options include a complete audio package; editing and mastering only; coaching you through the ACX process if you are doing it all yourself.
If you are a Lucky Bat Book author, you will need an ISBN for every version of your book. For example, for both a print book and an ebook, you will need two ISBNs.
