Are you an aspiring author wondering how you can get started on your publishing journey? Should you find a traditional publisher or go it alone and self-publish? Unfortunately, many believe these are the only 2 options.
Traditional publishing is a process that many authors and leaders dream of, but it can also be a long and difficult journey. The process can take years, and it can be difficult to land a publishing deal, especially for first-time authors. Self-publishing, on the other hand, is the process of publishing your book independently. With self-publishing, you retain complete control of your book and its rights. You are responsible for editing, formatting, and distributing your book, but you also get to keep all of the royalties. Self-publishing can be a great way to get your book out there quickly, but it can also be a lot of work. It’s very possible for anyone to manage their own publishing journey, but from our experience, this slows the process down. There’s a steep learning curve to the publishing process, and doing it all yourself means you have to spend a lot of time ‘learning’ before you can get into actual production. Not to mention the time it takes away from you writing and sharing your talents with your audience. Self-publishing can be overwhelming and confusing, especially for first-time authors.
Fortunately, there is a third option!

Reviews are essential for any book’s success; that’s why we’ll give you tips and tricks on how to get more readers to leave reviews for your book. Positive reviews can make a big difference in the success of your book.
Finally, we’ll help you set up advertising campaigns directly on Amazon, to increase your book’s visibility and reach to a wider audience. We’ll work with you to create cost-effective campaigns that drive more traffic to your book, and help you reach more readers.

LK Tommi came to us with the idea of publishing a children’s storybook and journal. The two items work together to support a holistic understanding of children’s emotions, thinking, energy and behaviour and how that connects to every experience they have in life. LK Tommi had been working on these book ideas for many years, and in 2022 we released them with just a few months of work on each book. Together we improved the story with multiple professional edits, illustrations, beautifully designed pages and uploading the book for access worldwide. What had once been a ‘dream’ is now a reality and available on Amazon. With the success of these first books, and the speed at which we were able to get through production, LK Tommi has had time to work on her next book, due for release early this year.
