Your polished, published manuscript is only the beginning…
We’re about the Before, During, and AFTER you write your book! No LIMITS for Non-Fiction Indie Authors who really want to create their best book – first time!

Imagine a world of self-publishing where you are guided from the very start of your ideas for writing a book, all the way through the process, not stopping at the manuscript development, but all the way through the journey of becoming an authority in your area of expertise or shared wisdom.

We specialize in the ‘no-limits’ approach to what you can achieve as an independent self-published author.

Here’s how we work

We start with helping you to develop your ideas, focus on what the main areas are that you should be writing about, and help you craft the flow and content of your first book.   We also explore then what needs to be carried over to subsequent books later.  Then you take away your well-crafted plan and are coached over next few months to write your book.

As you near completion of your manuscript draft, we work together to fine tune your writing, ensuring that your manuscript is completely ready for a professional editor to make their final suggestions and edits so that your book is ready for production.

The production phase is where we take your manuscript an finalise the formatting, design, extra parts necessary at the front and back to ensure your book is finished and polished to a finely developed product that you can be proud to promote and sell, hand out, give away, and use to position yourself as an authority on your topic.
