WHAT IS BOOKPILOT?
As the major areas on the banner above suggest, I can help you to plan the necessary steps in these areas and implement them:
Production of your book includes editing, cover design, formatting and converting, publishing, creating a basis for promotion. MORE HERE
Reviews: this is about getting reviews of your book. It does require an effort and publishing a book is not always enough (contacting individual reviewers doesn’t always work either). It actually includes many useful steps that are included in the other processes. MORE HERE
Fanbase has a lot to do with establishing the author’s platform. MORE HERE
Newsletter speaks for itself. Again, like with the rest of the processes, in order to make it happen and breathe life into it, a number of steps need to be taken. MORE HERE
Sales is best to describe the whole package. Should you choose so, I will add ad campaigns to the package (with no charge for my time).
Very few steps are unique to one particular process. Most of what is done in one process is conducive to the other ones. The differences are their goals.
BOOK STEP BY STEP
You are an author. I am a publishing manager, who can navigate your book through the choppy waters of production towards publishing and promotion. You can buy the whole process package, pick stand-alone features, or build your own package.
Have you been overwhelmed by all those many jobs and processes on the path to finally publishing your book and wished there’s someone who could help? No worries, I can help you. I can help plan and get one or several tasks done or manage the production project.
When I became a publisher and was making my first steps in the new profession, I was searching and collecting bits and pieces of knowledge, getting overwhelmed and frustrated at times. I was looking for gurus, coaches, partners, people with relevant knowledge and experience, read books and articles, watched countless videos, took courses. All in the hope to spot clear step-by-step instruction—from a manuscript to a promoted book.
And now that I know how challenging and time-consuming it may be, I offer you my assistance so that you can save your effort and your time and focus on writing. I can produce and publish your book, step by step.
I offer you what I was dreaming about for myself a while ago—knowledge and help, something that would make your learning curve less of a worry.
YOU ARE IN CHARGE
You are in charge of your book, words, ideas, and you’ll continue to be free from the mundane and the worldly which is my job. There are two major approaches to delivering my services to you:
1. You can still be the publisher of your book and use my services on an assignment basis.
2. Alternatively, you can assign me the publishing rights, while still keeping the copyright.
If you decide to grant me the publishing rights, we will sign a publishing agreement and my imprint Dayreads will be the publisher of your book. This solution is technically simpler because it gives your book the advantage of using Dayreads’ established platforms to publish and promote books. In more detail, it includes building your email list and joining book promotions using Dayreads’ subscriptions and social media accounts. You can also have your webpage and blog hosted on this website. On top of that, your book will be assigned a complimentary ISBN number.
PILOTING A BOOK
Book production and publishing include many jobs and processes: editing, converting, designing, generating marketing copy, reaching out to the author’s potential fanbase, promoting and selling. Those are large domains with many small and doable steps inside.
Authors can outsource a vast scale of work in all of those domains. Truth be said, the author’s involvement is very much expected and even irreplaceable on a number of essential steps.
My role is to guide, help you plan, put the steps in the right order, find and manage professional services, and provide tools and platforms essential for producing and promoting a book.
If on our journey, we come across an area in which I don’t have enough expertise to promise you a good result, I will advise you accordingly or I can also take up the challenge not charging you for my time. I am always grateful for an opportunity to learn more.
MARKETING AND SALES
I am not a marketing guru. I am adding it here only to emphasize that everything BookPilot is about is to make your marketing and sales possible and propel it. BookPilot is to help you establish the infrastructure you need for marketing and sales. In other words, it is all about marketing and sales. In fact, my services do include promotions. When comes to ad campaigns, I’d happy to share my experience with you and run your campaigns using my ad accounts without charging you for my time if it takes less than 10 per cent of the engagement.
