Coaching

Providing much-needed clarity for first-time and established authors.

It’s never been easier to write a book, what with the demise of traditional gatekeepers (read: publishers). Still, the bevy of options available to would-be and even established authors can be, well, confusing. Motion Publishing offers a number of book-coaching services.

Book Development

So, you’re all full of energy and want to write a book? Energy is a wonderful thing, but far too many people don’t ask themselves a fundamental question: Is their idea and content best-suited for a physical book, a single e-book or a series of them, or a website/blog?

This is a perhaps the most important decision that an aspiring author can make. And Motion can help you make the right one.

Selecting a Publishing Method

What are the pros and cons of the different types of publishing?

What are the pros and cons of working with established publishing firms vs. self-publishing? What about the different types of self-publishing? These are not simple and quick conversations.

For now, suffice it to say that, at a high level, pure self-publishing gives authors much greater control over everything. There’s a downside, though: You are now responsible for everything.

Motion Publishing can help you decide the best publishing option for you. We can help you avoid makingthe mistakes made by first-time authors. A few hours of consulting can save you thousands of dollars, more than a few headaches, and many sleep-deprived nights.

Pre-Publication

You’ve decided to take the plunge and write a book. If you’re writing a non-fiction book, you have to think about two fundamental questions before you begin the writing process–and during:

  • Who’s going to buy the book?
  • What are they going to do with the information?

While there are no guarantees, Motion Publishing can ensure that you are writing a book with the maximum commercial viability (if that is your goal).
