Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press

Books are a transformation vehicle with the power to change lives and change a reader's mindset.  They can also be a "hook" that lets the reader know they want to work more with you and your company.  Lifestyle Entrepreneurs, founded by Jesse Krieger, offers a hybrid approach that lands somewhere between self-publishing and traditional publishing, but in our opinion much better than either of those paths.  Amazon offers self-publishers a way to market all forms of your book through kindle, audible, acx, create space and just in time printing services, but they don't help you with marketing and sales.

Request a publishing consultation with Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press.  They work with the self-publisher to get a book from rough draft to bestseller. They help make writers into entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs into bestselling authors.

Publishing Your Book

5 Top Mistakes Writers Make

Fastest Path to Cash

Traditional Publishing

Book Proposal - 40-50 page business plan about the book hoping a publisher will like the idea and pay you to write it. The traditional publisher takes 80-90% of sales and takes control of your book.

Proposal must include:

-Overview

-Info about yourself

-Info about your book

-Outline

-Sample chapters

-Market Research

-Potential Readership Size

After spending efforts creating your proposal, you now begin the process of finding a literary agent who sees your value.  At that point s/he will look for a publishing deal for you and will take 15% of your advance from the publisher.  You now can write your book.
