How could a writing mentor help me?

Wondering how a writing mentor could help you? Have you finished your book, but unsure what to do next? I often say that the road to self-publishing is paved with a LOT of very small decisions. Each decision along the way is quite simple when you have the right information on hand. The accumulation of all those decisions determines the success of your book. On day one of your book publishing journey, you will be making decisions that have an impact on the release of your book. It’s important to understand how each decision affects the journey and how to make an educated decision. This is where a writing mentor can not only save you time, but also save you money.

Talk to us before your start writing!

What’s the purpose of your book? What’s the story you want to tell? How do you want to use your book? I’ve seen a few books re-written at the first editing stage because the author hasn’t realised they’re not speaking to the right audience. This is the job of a good book coach and can get you started with the book outline and purpose before you start. We can help you find a professional book coach who can help you with this process.

Perhaps you’re writing a non-fiction book… talk to us first and we can help you find a niche within your topic that is in demand in the book market. Market research BEFORE you write the book could very well make the difference between the success and failure of your book.

So, you’ve written the book, but not sure what to do next?

With traditional publishing, you will have someone holding your hand the entire way. When you self-publish, you are essentially on your own for the entire journey. Here’s where Turtle Publishing’s writing mentor service can really help. Meet with us to find out what the process is, what professionals you need to hire, how you can save some money. You don’t have to do everything the hard way. We use our knowledge and contacts to get you moving along and save you a lot of time. We can even help create a timeline for you so you know what to expect.

Another way we can help you is to optimise your book before you go through the editing process. This is the ideal time to find your keywords, optimise the title, subtitle and description and give your book the best opportunity for success. We can help research books in your niche and begin brainstorming your book cover. These decisions are critical to the success of your book and we can help you to make informed decisions.

Let’s launch!

So, you’ve spent all this time writing, editing, researching and perfecting the book to the best of your abilities. It’s time to put it on Amazon. It’s at this point I see many self-publishers fail (including myself in my first attempt). At Turtle Publishing we follow a 7-8 week launch process that maximises the organic sales of our books. Let us guide you through this process. We tailor to suit YOU! There are many factors which affect the launch process and we can assist you, teach you or do-it-for-you. During this process we can help optimise the book keywords, description, title. We have options for advanced reviewers, techniques to help you get honest and ethical reviews and advertising strategies. Each book requires a slightly different approach and our mentoring service is designed to work with you individually.

Book a 30-minute complimentary consult with us, and let’s see how we can help your book dream come true.
