All our services can be tailor made to your specific needs and objectives
This form of publishing is popular with people who want to publish their books with a reputable publisher who will take care of the cover design, typesetting and layout, ISBN number and barcode and printing, at a fee.
We have a team of professional graphic designers who deal with covers, typesetting, and layout designing. So, you don't have to worry about anything.
We are selective with the books that we accept for assisted publishing, and unfortunately, we do not accept the following genres: Poetry, Short stories, and Academic.
This model works best for entrepreneurs, professional speakers, and coaches who want to partner with a reputable publisher on their book. The end result is a professionally published book, worthy of any global bookshelf.
Your business has a story, its' that story which will connect it to more potential customers.
Your clients don't really care about the branded coffee mugs and lanyards you give them and neither is your staff. What they will care about is a story which will inspire them and add value to their lives, and your business' story can do just that.
We help you to craft that story so that your potential customers can get a feel for what your company is all about, its values, mission, history and DNA.
We also help companies in creating lead magnets in the form of ebooks, checklists or reports. This is a great way to get customers to share their information with you in exchange for a free ebook, checklist or report.

Do you think that your book should be traditionally published?
Traditional publishing isn't for everyone, only books which offer a fresh perspective, are globally marketable and relatable will be considered for traditional publishing.
Traditional publishing is where the publisher, after evaluating your manuscript, accepts it for publishing. This process of evaluation and planning usually takes anything from 3 to 8 months or longer. The publisher bears all the costs to publishing and marketing your book and you as the author will receive a certain royalty percentage from the books sold or from the net sales of the book.
Do you believe that your book is bookshop worthy?
We're a registered vendor for Exclusive Books, with access to stores such as Bedford Centre, Rosebank Mall, Menlyn, Mall of the South, Mall of Africa and others.
This isn't a financially feasible option for every author because of the strict terms that Exclusive Books has, such as us having to supply them books at a 50% discounted rate on the RRP, as well as them taking books on a sale/return basis so whatever doesn't sell after 2 months they will send back to us and we'll have to credit them. We also charge a once-off fee of R 1 000 and we take 10% of all book sales, which leaves the author with 40%.
Each store is given our latest catalog and they pick the books that they have interest in, then we ship the books to them and they pay us within 60 days.
Books that seem to do well are fiction, especially local fiction, business and finance books as well.
A BookDrive is basically a cocktail of a book launch, training presentation, and a motivational talk. All based on your book. A BookDrive has one purpose, to increase awareness about your book, and in the process, you will be showcasing your expertise, setting your call-to-action, and reaching a wider audience as well.
Let's say that you're an author who has a book titled "Sustainable Success", you can create a BookDrive titled "5 Keys to a sustainable business" and you can present it to the audience and end off with an offer for them to buy your book on Amazon or to join your group coaching and so forth.
We are able to then re-air the BookDrive you just did live, and we can re-air it once every month or once every week. This helps to compound the possibilities of increased book sales and brand awareness.
It's a no-brainer. Here's a replay from one of our BookDrives, REPLAY LINK
In addition to publishing your book with us, we help you to become a contributor writer to global publications that are aligned with your expertise, and whose readers are your ideal customers.
This is a big deal. One of the best ways to tell who's the real expert and who's the fake one is through social proof. We're not talking about testimonials and reviews, but about the actual content. Experts can prove their expertise through their written content that is insightful, practical, and actionable.
You'll get access to our private Facebook group where we'll teach you everything on article writing, from writing articles, pitching editors/publications to getting paid for your content.
The long-term results of this are, a growing audience that trusts your brand, a reputation for adding value and being known as the go-to person for your specific topic of expertise.
