Lioness Self Publishing Book Coaching

"Give a man a fish, and you feeed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" - Chinese Proverb

Book coaching means I walk you through the self publishing process for your first (or subsequent) manuscripts.

I will do the heavy lifting, from typesetting and cover design and setting up your various publishing portals, through to setting up your promotional platforms. Once these are set up I will hand the tools to you so you can manage them, and so you can replicate the process for your future self-publishing.

Once your book is ready to launch I will help to set up your promotional platforms including promotion on the Lioness publishing platforms and all social media platforms.

I try to keep our Book Coaching fees as reasonable as possible and try to be as transparent as possible about likely costs.

However, you need to be aware that you are paying to prepare your manuscript for publishing, to help you to self-publish your book, and make it available either direct to you or available via online retailers. You have full control of your book promotions and marketing.

  • 100% royalty - you keep all royalties
