Book Marketing day – Want to put together a successful book launch and marketing strategy? Spend a day focused on building your business from your book. I’ll take you step-by-step through the best processes to promote your book, and show you exactly what you need to do and when to get your book noticed and to create products and programmes off the back of it. You’ll leave with all my best tips to help you to make money from your book and sell it successfully.

“Without Karen our book would never have got off the ground. A mix of the one-day book planning session and coaching calls led us through the process of definition and then writing. What is powerful about Karen’s approach is that the book writing sits firmly within the context of business development. If you want to write a book that is a business asset then Karen is the expert with the process that will ensure that you are writing and then marketing the right book.” Louise Wiles and Evelyn Simpson, Thriving Abroad, authors of Thriving Abroad: The Definitive Guide to Professional and Personal Relocation Success. 


“Having a partner was really important to me and having the encouragement to get the book done has been invaluable. Karen gave me the short-cuts with her expertise. She’s done the legwork so I didn’t have to, as I didn’t want to learn the technical stuff. This was an amazing plus for me. We worked together on a plan which was broken into manageable chunks, and this plan was the linchpin that enabled me to do it.

eat to outsmart cancer book coverNow I’ve written the book and my Mum’s very proud! It’s elevated my profile, and I’ve been running Eat to Outsmart Cancer workshops across the UK. The book has helped and I can’t wait to be able to offer the book so that people can not only be inspired but have something to take away with them.

It has really helped working with Karen, because you make the commitment and have the support in place to help you. If there’s something in your business that you excel at, a book is a perfect thing to do.”

Gina Visram 3“Karen and I started to work together at the latter stages of writing the book. It was actually being proof read at that time. I’m glad we worked together as it made a massive difference to the final output even at that stage. She helped me to develop my signature system that works and brought everything together.

Writing a book has been a great business card, and it automatically gives you a sense of authority and a talking point. There is something still very special about writing a book that people respect, which has helped with the authority in my business.  It starts to answer the ‘why me’ question and because I have the book and the 7 step signature system that I’m really proud of. Moving forward, it’s the basis of a programme I’m developing.

Karen supported me with my actual book launch in London. She also helped with the nuts and bolts and the strategy for my Kindle launch earlier this year, and it got to number 1 in one of its categories. Now I’m working with Karen again to support me with my ongoing marketing and my second book!”

“Karen gave me sharpness and focus I needed and can highly recommend it.

I’m now clearer on my message and my niche market, which has helped me to focus. It has been a very worthwhile kick up the bum! I could have spent the rest of my life writing this book if it wasn’t for Karen. She took away my excuses, and gave me reasons for doing it.  It’s been great to have her contacts and knowing the steps that I needed to take.

It changes things when people know you’ve got a book and it adds power to your message, even though it’s not even out there yet. I’m eager to start my next book as I’ve learnt how to do it through this one.

I advise you to contact Karen as she will stop you from wasting your time and help you to do the best you can.”
