The answer depends on the state of your manuscript when we start our work together. If we start with a fully edited and proofed manuscript, we can design your cover, publish to Amazon, and run your launch campaign in as little as six to eight weeks.
On the other hand, if you have a completed first draft, we will provide in-depth copy editing and proofreading. Once you review and approve any changes, then we design your cover, publish to Amazon, and run your launch campaign in as little as ten to twelve weeks.
The above time estimates assume that as a client, you will be available, engaged, and turnaround review and approval of the composed text and covers in a timely fashion.
All of them so far. Besides achieving that gratifying #1 Amazon Bestseller status, our goal with the initial launch campaign is to build momentum for your book both in sales and reader reviews. After the launch, we build on that early momentum with Amazon Advertising and building an email list of engaged readers. Our clients include both first-time authors and multiple book authors; both traditionally published previously with the big three houses and independently published.
Munn Avenue Press provides start-to-finish publication services for your book. We run each manuscript through multiple layers of copyediting and proofreading–each stage executed by a different member of our team with a unique area of expertise. We work with you to design an eye-catching, professional cover that both expresses the story you’ve told on the page and which will make readers want to pick it up. Once you’re ecstatic about how your book looks, we take care of formatting it for every application, including eBooks, paperbacks, hardcovers, and boxset bundles. From there, we distribute your book to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshop.org, local bookstores and libraries. We also can produce your book as an audiobook and distribute it to Audible, Amazon and iTunes
Our team will work to optimize your book’s description, reviews, graphics, and your author bio to help you achieve the most visibility on Amazon. We will generate categories and keywords which most effectively place your book in front of the eyes of readers. Our marketing efforts will also extend to launch promotions, special promotions, Amazon advertising, Bookbub deals, newsletter promotions, and international sales development.
One of the benefits of working with us is that we know what works and what doesn’t. We’ve tested advertising, promotional programs, email campaigns, and social media. We’ve wasted a ton of money on things that don’t work so you don’t have to waste your money. And at the same time, have found the media and approaches that have paid off for our clients. We’ll plan and implement programs for the launch and post-launch of your book that make sense for you, work for your book’s genre, and fit your budget.
We have achieved outstanding results for our clients in multiple genres–both fiction and non-fiction.
Fiction #1 Bestsellers: political thrillers, techno-thrillers, espionage thrillers, women’s historical fiction, sports fiction, family sagas, science fiction, young adult and middle-school fiction.
Non-Fiction: Memoir, Personal Finance, Retirement Planning, Family Business, Business Crisis Management, Business Transition Planning.
