Grow Your Author Platform

Are you an Author with a burning desire to create a positive impact on the world by sharing your book with the people who need your help?

Whether you wish to approach publishers, plan to self-publish or your book baby is already in print, there is one thing you need for your book to be the success you have always dreamed of – An Author Platform! 

Your Author Platform is the online presence you create which will gather together your ideal readers, give you a voice and most importantly an audience to sell your book to. 

Many people believe that once their book is snapped up by a well-known publisher or available to purchase on Amazon, their life will change as book sales soar as your book falls into the hands of avid readers.

The truth is however, that without a marketing strategy and an Author platform, your book won’t reach the life-changing heights you desire. Even large well known publishers encourage you to learn how to grow an Author Platform and expect you to market your own book.

It can feel overwhelming when you’ve spent months, sometimes years, writing your book only to find you have only a very small audience to sell it to.

That’s where I can help!

With over 125k followers on my Facebook page, Mindful Wishes, I know EXACTLY what it takes to make an impact on social media and how to help you create that all important Author Platform that will give you an audience you love your work and who will buy your book. I regularly have my writing featured on McGill Media, an online platform with an audience of over 12.5 million subscribers and have had my writing featured in magazines such as Spirit and Destiny.

I will also help create a bespoke and effective marketing plan for your book proposal, should you wish to approach publishers.

Through my bespoke Author Platform Coaching I will help you find your audience…I can assure you there are thousands of people to whom your words will be the exact medicine they need.

Even if you are just starting to write your book just now – the time to put together your marketing plan and create your Author Platform is now.
