One on One Publishing/Publicity Advice
Sometimes you just need professional advice to clarify your goals for your book or your business. Let us help you navigate your way through the publishing/marketing industry by booking a one time or monthly call with us. Write your list of questions and we’ll give you the best advice we can based on our expertise.
We are now offering what we call a One to One publishing consulting. This consist of a phone call meeting which entitles you to speak with our agent about the process of publishing. It will ensure that you are represented in all matters concerning your book from an insider that knows all the ropes. It does not mean you have an agent ( he makes those choices) but it does give you a chance to ask pertinent questions on your journey to publication! Brian J Wood is available for this service.
