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).
