You have an idea for a book swimming around in the back of your head. You want to write and publish this book.
I know the feeling.
You want to morph it from your wish list to a best seller.You want to sell your book on Amazon. You have something to say and you want to get paid for it.
And you can. You should. There's no reason not to.
Look, I've published more than twenty-five books with major publishers from Simon & Schuster to McMillan and Crown. All earned me money and stature. All still do. My biography of financier Carl Icahn pulled in an advance payment to me of $175,000 from the publisher and still earns me thousands a year on Amazon, more than 20 years after it was first published.
I've been through this and I can help you organize your book, write it, publish it, print it and sell it!
What can you write about?
Anything you have a passion for and knowledge about.
Do you need to be an established author?
Absolutely not. When I published my first book, I was a 25-year old nobody in the publishing world.
Do you need to have a big publisher behind you?
Not today. We can explore that route, but with the quality of a good book fused with the power of the Amazon publishing platform, you can write a best seller without engaging with a traditional publisher.
I can help you do it all.
Quickly, simply and powerfully. And the sky is truly the limit.
Case in point: some years ago, I had the offbeat idea of writing a book called "Your Marketing Sucks."
I had an agent, but he hated the tittle.
I went to another agent. Same response.
I knew top people at major publishers, who had published my previous books.
All thought the idea was atrocious.
But I marched on. I persevered. I wrote the book that was yes, overflowing in my mind. And then I showed it to the same elites who rejected the idea at the outset, and boom, now they loved it.
But all had one more demand:
"Change the damn title. No one wants to buy a book with the word 'Sucks' in it!"
"BS," I said. "If you want the book, you need to accept, no you need to embrace, the title."
And they did. And I sold the book to the Crown division of Random House for hefty advance. And Your Marketing Sucks raced to the top of the Business Week Best Seller list, number 20 of all books on Amazon, a smash at Barnes & Noble and has earned me millions in royalties, business fees and consulting engagements across the globe (Your Marketing Sucks is available in nine languages, each edition with its own revenue stream.)
Here's how we can work together to get your book published and hopefully into the Best Seller sweepstakes!
