Too many authors think writing is one thing, and marketing is something altogether. They dislike the idea of marketing, and will always struggle with an imagined blockade to sales success. There is no creative difference between marketing and writing, AND, if you plan your marketing WHILE you are writing your book, you will be lightyears ahead of the game! I’m not talking about setting up accounts geared toward your book’s unique hooks … I’m talking about building powerful unique hooks INTO your book!

  • Exactly who are you writing for?
  • Time to lift your head and see what’s going on in the world!
  • Putting together what the world is loving, and where it fits into your work in progress
  • Planning for success with targeted goals toward a powerful, specific, and ready audience
