You're passionate about sharing your message, experience or story. I'm passionate about helping you do that. My Boutique Self-Publishing service guides you every step of the way from production to publishing to bestseller status.
Who is this package for?
This package is designed for non-fiction authors —specifically memoir, self-help, spiritual, business, health, relationships, and other genres that can have a positive impact on people's lives.
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!
My service offers you full control over the entire publishing process and my 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.
My philosophy is that every aspect of your book, every decision that you make from the title to the book launch must be reader-centric. This ensures that your book is discovered, purchased, read, and reviewed by as many potential readers as possible. We will:
- Define your audience or book topic
- Refine your title and subtitle
- Evaluate your manuscript
- Help you understand the self-publishing process
- Connect you with a professional editor and/or proofreader

- Write copy for your back cover
- Guide you to gather endorsements for your book

"A marketing genius with the perfect balance of strategy and soul."
I’ve worked with Geoff for about four years now and as a bestselling author himself his marketing savvy and online expertise has been instrumental in two of my own books becoming #1 Amazon bestsellers. My latest book, Creating the Impossible, became a bestseller two days prior to its official release (!) due to pre-sales and some wise strategy. With his technical genius, Geoff has also helped me create an elegant, functional, and engaging website as well as some beautiful landing pages for programs and events. Geoff is the rare combination of left-brain practical know-how and right-brain creativity and design. In other words, he’s a true marketing genius with the perfect balance of strategy and soul.
Thanks Geoff! I so appreciate your great work in helping me do more of my great work.

“When I started working with Geoff last year, I was seeking a coach who would be a cheerleader, an advisor and an accountability/marketing/business partner all in one, as I was launching myself into a new career direction – and he’s more than fulfilled all these roles!
In the short time we’ve been working together, he’s provided me with the mentorship, guidance and support required to help me complete my first book, build my email list, and develop strategies for expanding my message and brand globally. His grounded, practical and thoughtful approach to coaching has been just what I’ve needed to help me sustain my clarity, energy and momentum through a period of accelerated productivity and growth – both personally and professionally. I’m so grateful to have found a quality coach who I can also call my friend. Thanks Geoff!”
