Coaching & Consultations

Book writing and publishing are often isolated solitary endeavors. If this is a new business to you, you owe it to yourself to get coaching from Dan. Do not waste time trying to figure it all out for yourself (reinventing the wheel). If you have been in publishing for a while, Dan can show you some surprisingly easy tricks that will take your business to the next level.

Dan Poynter loves books, publishing, and publishers and he is committed to helping writers and publishers. His seminars have been featured on CNN, his books have been pictured in The Wall Street Journal, and his story has been told in U.S. News & World Report. The media come to him because he is the leading authority on book marketing, promoting and distributing.

Dan generously shares his 40+ years of hands-on book writing and publishing experience in several ways: He speaks on book writing and book publishing/promoting. You may invite him to speak to your group of any size. He hosts Book Promotion Workshops in Santa Barbara. And he serves as a publishing industry consultant. He is ready to help you by telephone or he will come to you. See Free InfoKit.
