Boutique Self-Publishing & Guaranteed Bestseller
Professional Self-Publishing & Guaranteed Amazon #1 Bestseller Launch Package
You are passionate about sharing your message, experience or story. We are passionate about helping you achieve that. Our Boutique Self-Publishing & Guaranteed Bestseller service guides you every step of the way from production to publishing to bestseller status.
Who is this Self-Publishing package for?
This all-inclusive self-publishing package is for both non-fiction and fiction authors. We have published dozens of non-fiction titles including memoirs, self-help, spiritual, business, health, relationships, how-to, and more. Our fiction titles range from suspense to romance to historical fiction. A number of authors have published children's books with our guidance.
What's different about what you offer?
With traditional publishing you need an agent to represent you, you sign over the rights to your book forever, and receive a measly 7-10% of royalties.
With hybrid publishing services you pay a fee to self-publish your book, hand over up to 80% of your royalties to the publisher, have little control over the publishing process, and do most of the marketing. And making changes to your book listing after it's published can be like pulling teeth!
Our Boutique Self-Publishing Service offers you full control over the entire publishing process and our expertise ensures your book's success. You retain 100% of the rights to your book and keep 100% of the royalties from every sale. With this form of self-publishing you remain nimble—able to make changes on the fly even after your book has been published.
Our 10+ years publishing, digital marketing, and Amazon optimization experience will make a big difference to the success of your book.
What Self-Published authors say about our Boutique Self-Publishing Service?
We have helped hundreds of fiction and non-fiction authors self-publish their book—and made them Amazon #1 Bestseller!

Praise from our Clients
“Amazon #1 bestseller in 8 categories”
"Reaching this goal was possible due to the dedicated efforts of Geoff Affleck who stepped in when another publishing company was unable to deliver. Geoff guided the publication process with ease and grace. My entire experience with him was pleasant as he provided support and guidance every step of the way. I was so grateful for his assistance that brought my book to such a fantastic level on Amazon. Our weekly meetings were always so encouraging and forward focused, leading to an amazing outcome. Thank you for the support. Your expertise was such a welcome landing place for me."

“Such a positive experience”
"Geoff is wonderful to work with. I have had such a positive experience working with Geoff on self-publishing my book Stand In Your Brilliance. In fact, my book reached #1 on Amazon on the first day of my book launch. Geoff is incredibly knowledgeable about self-publishing and especially when self-publishing on Amazon. He is also very patient and understanding. He has been an invaluable part of my support team with publishing my book."
KATHY KWIATKOWSKI | First-time author & #1 bestselling author of Stand in Your Brilliance
“Amazon #1 bestseller in 4 categories”
"Geoff helped me to get my first book finalised and launched on Amazon, to #1 bestseller status in 4 categories. I chose Geoff, because I thought he was calm, supportive and knows his stuff. I wasn't disappointed. Our weekly coaching calls were an absolute pleasure. Geoff has a great way of giving feedback in a non-judgey supportive way, and keeping you on the path without being pushy about it. Geoff was very particular about the title and sub-title, the back cover content and overall design, which I really appreciated. It's these things that make the difference between getting the book just published, and getting it to number one. Geoff particularly shines at keyword research and selecting categories, plus running the ongoing Amazon ads (you can tell he genuinely loves this stuff, which is great, because I sincerely don't!). As a first time author, there's a lot to understand, and it can be easy at times to feel overwhelmed. Geoff dealt with lots of hard stuff so I didn't have to, and helped me out constantly in a no-stress, no-fuss way. He helped me secure a great editor, and type-setter, and generally dealt with all the stuff that would have derailed me, if I hadn't had Geoff in my corner. I couldn't have had a better experience than I did. Definitely picked a winner here! I look forward to working with Geoff ongoing on the next 3 books I have planned."

“Cheerleader, teacher, coach and much more!”
"Geoff was an extremely patient teacher and coach, explaining and educating me throughout the entire process of writing and marketing my book. Through his knowledge of self-publishing, my book ranked as #1 bestseller in three categories on the Amazon best seller list. He is a wizard at what he does and taught me so much about the industry! Geoff captured the heart of my book, wrapped it in a marketing plan, and launched it to the top of the bestseller lists. He promises bestseller listings and indeed, he is a man of his word! Thank you, Geoff. I’ll be back on my next writing project."
ANN YABUSAKI | First-time author & #1 bestselling author of Letters From a Tiger Mom
“I wish every indie author would give themselves the gift of Geoff’s coaching.”
Don’t go it alone! Any author that’s talented and committed enough to write a book can definitely figure it all out themselves – but why would you? Working with Geoff made the final stages of my book launch journey easier and more enjoyable. He is able to draw on rich expertise and experience to support authors to know their choices, make good decisions, and simply know what to do next. This kind of clarity and companionship was a relief to me, and I feel grateful to have discovered his services, let alone benefited from them. I wish every indie author would give themselves the gift of Geoff’s coaching. After writing a book, you deserve it.
LUCY TURNER | First-time author & #1 bestselling author of 9 Wonder Words
“As a new author, I couldn't have done it without his expertise.”
"Beginners need an exceptional coach, and there is no one better than Geoff Affleck. He'll guide you through the complex weave of getting your book ready for publication and recommend the keys to optimize sales. Any new author planning to self-publish their first book will miss many of the essential, innate steps to successfully publish their book and have readers buy it. Once written, there are many steps to learn and accomplish to get a book ready for publication. Some examples include designing an eye-catching book cover, formatting the interior professionally, getting endorsements for the back cover, and choosing keywords proven to help attract readers in the book's genre.
Geoff is a teacher, a mentor, and a winning coach. As a new author, I couldn't have done it without his expertise. Geoff is the best, and I highly recommend him for new authors to guide them through perfecting their book on Amazon's book marketplace, attracting readers, and optimizing sales and readership."
STAN COMFORTI | First-time author & #1 bestselling author of the Sam Caviello Federal Agent Crime Mystery series
“Save yourself the headaches, stress, and procrastination.”
As a first-time author, I would not have gotten my book to this level had it not been for Geoff Affleck! Geoff goes above and beyond with his services and guides you through the entire publishing process (and all the steps you never knew existed!) – working with the editor, book cover design, formatting, e-book, audio book, testimonials, getting your ISBN’s, Amazon reviews, keyword searches, strategic ads, plus all of his expert one-on-one coaching. He got my book out in three formats, on many platforms, and also moved me up to be an Amazon Best Seller. Save yourself the headaches, stress, and procrastination and work with Geoff. Your experience and outcome will be rewarding!

“Went beyond the call of duty... highly recommended to aspiring authors”
"I engaged Geoff Affleck to assist me in self-publishing my latest book Awakening the Avatar Within in spring of 2021, and now in October the book is launched and published in four versions - paperback, e-book, hardcover with color pictures and audiobook. I have been very happy with Geoff's service and support. For a single reasonable fee he got my book typeset in three versions, hired a highly skilled artist to create a great cover design, referred me to an excellent proofreader, listed my book on Amazon with optimized parameters, ran a successful campaign to get my book to #1 bestseller status on Amazon in 8 categories, set up Amazon ads and more. His service has included weekly live, one to one coaching sessions with me over the last four months, and those have been super helpful. Geoff also went beyond the call of duty and helped me connect with several luminaries in my genre with whom I have exchanged endorsements.
Geoff has always been responsive, helpful and very knowledgeable about his craft. He has a strong perfectionism streak, and I appreciate that he has done everything he could for all aspects of my book to be perfect. I highly recommend Geoff's service to aspiring authors wishing to get solid support self-publishing their book."
DARREN STARWYNN | #1 bestselling author of Awakening the Avatar Within
“Five stars! Felt like I had a true partner guiding me through the complex self-publishing labyrinth.”
"Back in 2018, I self-published a memoir about living with bipolar disorder (Mad Like Me: Travels in Bipolar Country). I didn’t have any external assistance with that, so had to learn everything on my own. To say that the process was a nightmare is a massive understatement. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. So, with this bipolar anthology, I decided to invest in a professional publishing coach, and based on previous experience of Geoff in free webinars, I chose him to help me “deliver this precious baby”! Best decision of my career.
Working with 42 individual contributors at times felt overwhelming to me as the editor. I remember in one session I told Geoff, “I feel like I’ve been running a marathon for two-and-a-half years, and now I can see the finish line just ahead, but all I want to do is lie down and give up.” He nodded and humbly asked, “What can I do to help?” It turned out to be some technical issue with either Amazon Author Central or KDP Customer Service that was heavily weighing on me. With a couple of quick clicks, he went online, fixed the issue, and said, “Right, what’s next on your list?” I was so relieved! I felt like I had a true partner guiding me through the complex self-publishing labyrinth! I’ve recommended Geoff to all my writer colleagues, and have already given him a heads-up that I’ll be contacting him for my next self-publishing project. Five stars!"

“I used my intuition to go with Geoff”
"When I was writing Divine Trust I had to make many decisions as to how to go about publishing it. I checked around and investigated many different options, but I had a friend suggest that I use Geoff Affleck’s program to self-publish my book. I used my intuition to go with Geoff. What I like most about what Geoff had to offer was his personalized attention tailored specifically for me and the self-help and spiritual genre, for which my book addressed. Geoff was with me every step of the way. He handled almost everything himself and really knows the business. He made the publishing as easy as possible and guided me through every single step flawlessly. Now that my book is published and also in audible format, I am continuing to work with Geoff to assist with the marketing campaign. I already have my next book outline and I am planning on working with Geoff again to self-publish my second book. I highly recommend him to all my friends and colleagues who ask me about my publishing experience."
DR. NANCY WILEY | First-time author & #1 bestselling author of Divine Trust
“Geoff continually went above and beyond with his attention to detail and support”
"I knew from our first zoom discovery call that I wanted to work with Geoff. His calm and grounded demeanor was reassuring at a time when I felt intimidated by the entire book creation process. Over the seven months that followed he embodied a seemingly endless supply of encouragement and patience. He held my hand as we traversed the multiple production phases including cover and back cover creation, interior design, my book’s landing page, the launch, and much more. I discovered that he is not only an expert in the marketing end of things, but has a seasoned creative eye that I leaned on while making the many design decisions for all aspects of my book. He continually went above and beyond with his attention to detail and support.
With his book launch campaign, Widow's Moon reached #1 Bestseller on Amazon in multiple categories. I couldn’t have done that without his tried and true strategies. If you are searching for someone who is dedicated to helping you birth your book into the world I would highly recommend Geoff! It was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I will be forever grateful!"
CARA HOPE CLARK | First-time author & #1 bestselling and award winning author of Widow’s Moon
“Guided by Geoff to create the best book possible”
"My experience publishing two books with Geoff Affleck has been remarkable. I have had the experience working with several in house publishers on previous books and working with Geoff and his team has been the best experience I've ever had. From cover design to editing to text and book design each step permitted me to be involved, make decisions and be guided by Geoff to create the best book possible. What was always challenging with previous published books was the marketing and sales. Again, Geoff has a core of collaborators that provide many ways to increase sales, but most importantly is Geoff’s ability to optimize sales on Amazon. I am grateful for Geoff’s consultative approach to self-publishing because it feels like you are inside a very efficient publishing firm that is guiding you to have the best, most successful book out into the world."
DAVID KYLE | #1 bestselling author of Energy Teachings of The Three

Geoff goes above and beyond to help you "figure out your book launch". He has a fabulous array of connections and contacts. You really glean from a treasure chest of knowledge when you choose to work with Geoff and if you're like me you may feel - you've found gold.

His recommendations and assistance covered the use of technology, book cover design and descriptions, obtaining endorsements, video and website layout, formatting, marketing copy, book promotions and Amazon and Ingram related placements.

“A self-publishing master!”
"Geoff is a true master in the self-publishing field. Geoff utilized his vast expertise to help me navigate the various aspects of the publication process with joy and ease. He also shared his network of contacts to connect me to the perfect resources to ensure my book and launch was professional and to the highest standards. Geoff’s depth of knowledge in launching Amazon best-sellers is unsurpassed. On launch day, my book Perfect hit #1 Amazon bestseller in three categories and was a #1 New Release in 10 categories. I will always be eternally grateful for his wisdom and patience in helping me share my message with the world. He is a true game changer."
JUDI MILLER | First-time author & bestselling author of Perfect
“Sales of my book more than doubled, every month for a year!”
"I first met Geoff through his immensely informative Amazon Bootcamp class a year after I self-published my first book, Burn Boston Burn. Sales of the book were starting to lag, so I sought help from this highly sought after expert. I retained Geoff and immediately, through his Amazon advertising plan, sales of my book more than doubled, every month for a year!
Finally, I asked Geoff for his knowledge and expertise to finalize my second book, the newly released, Bang Boom Burn. His input on my cover design and back cover information took the cover from very good to fabulous. His easy going style with suggestions, directions and assistance resulted in a first-rate product. Bang Boom Burn launched as an Amazon #1 Bestseller in five categories, all due to Geoff’s production and marketing plan. I highly recommend looking into Geoff Affleck to help get your book project flying higher than you ever thought possible."
WAYNE M. MILLER | #1 bestselling author of Burn Boston Burn and Bang Boom Burn
“This kind of support is invaluable”
"When I self-published my first two novels, I did so pretty much on my own. Finding Geoff for my third novel, highlighted not only all the mistakes I’d inadvertently made but also what was possible, particularly in the area of marketing. Geoff has expertise in all areas of publishing from cover design to formatting to working the algorithms of Amazon, and has a network of professionals that round out his team. His patience and knowledge were so very appreciated as I launched Epicenter. In fact, I felt so supported that I am now working with Geoff to re-format and relaunch my second book and discussing with him the fourth novel I am about to begin writing. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to self-publish to contact Geoff. This kind of support is invaluable."
CARRIE HANNAH | Bestselling author of Epicenter
“Easy to work with, efficient, and gets results”
"When I published and launched my latest book Lean Six Sigma I hired Geoff to Optimize my Amazon listings, coordinate my cover designs and typesetting, manage my Amazon Ads campaigns, and take my books to best seller status. As a result both of my books are on the first page of Amazon search results, have been multiple #1 best sellers and generate a positive cash flow. Geoff is easy to work with, efficient, and gets results."
DR. WESLEY DONAHUE | #1 bestselling author of Building Leadership Competence and Unlocking Lean Six Sigma
“The New York Times bestseller”
"Geoff used his marketing brilliance to make sure our site was set up to support a successful launch of our book to #8 on The New York Times bestseller list. I was so grateful for his creativity and responsiveness. Geoff is a total joy to work with!”
ELLEN ROGIN | Co-author of the New York Times Bestseller, Picture Your Prosperity
“International Amazon Bestseller, with five-star reviews”
"I always knew that it was in my stars to write a book and publish it. Wishing on those stars paid off when superstar Geoff Affleck shone his brilliance on my dream to be a published author. Lucky me! He offered a simple motivating program that led me from writing to marketing my book. In the beginning, I thought writing the book would be the hardest part, but once he opened the wellspring with his program, that was the easy part. One step at a time - editing, designing, printing, and marketing, he was always there. With Geoff’s guidance, Katy’s Farmhouse Kitchen: Rural Recipes and Saucy Stories to Savour is an International Amazon Bestseller, with five-star reviews. I highly recommend Geoff. He will guide and empower you to be the best you can be. With his guidance, I have finished my second book and ready to write the third."

“How amazing you are with your craft”
"Over the last few weeks my friends have heard me talk about you and how amazing you are with your craft. If ever they need to write their story you are the best guide ever. Thank you Geoff for all the hard work you, and your team of specialists, did on my behalf. Getting my manuscript into book format for Amazon/KDP and Ingram Spark was definitely a journey that I probably would still be on if I had tried to navigate the publishing waters alone. In retrospect, had you not been recommended, I doubt if Unzipped would have been successful."
DARLENE PARRIS YOUNG | First-time author & bestselling author of Unzipped
“The go-to self-publishing professional”
"I thank Geoff and his team of designers, typesetters, and SEO specialists, for their input, professionalism, and attention to every minute detail.

Geoff is the go-to publishing professional to have on your team when you are only satisfied with the best."
JOHN P. CULNANE | First-time author of Nine Lives and Counting

In addition to his own broad base of publishing expertise, Geoff connects you with quality designers to help you edit, proof, typeset, and develop a cover. He then cuts through the maze of launching your book on Amazon and other platforms in a way that successfully draws attention, reviews, and sales to your book.
