Whether you have a contract with a traditional publisher or you are going the self-publishing route, you the author can’t rely on anyone else to promote your book.

That’s where we come in. With our boutique book launch, author website, and social media services, we help you to meet all the demands placed on the modern author.
What We Offer
Joel has been a constant companion as well as indispensable advisor throughout the process of launching my book. His experience, insight and easy-going disposition make him a pleasure to work with. His deep knowledge as a book launch consultant provided much guidance in a field saturated with complex procedure and strategic decisions. Joel’s timely responses to pressing issues, availability, high quality of work, and detailed outlined thinking, reinforce my belief that Joel is the foundation to my book publishing endeavors. I not only recommend, but urge you to seek Joel’s council when launching a book!Dr. Brit Poulson
“Joel Pitney is a dynamo! He inspired me to conceptualize my book campaign in ways that no ‘How-To’ book on the subject ever could. Pitney was an absolute joy to work with: transparent and forthright about what he’d deliver and never failed to meet his word and deadlines. Pitney is a “life coach” for book authors. Now’s the time to get in touch with him; brains and talent like this won’t be available for hire for long.”Margot Pepper
“I have worked closely with Joel on the publication of People Tools, and his experience and energy helped my book to end up on the New York Times Bestseller List. In addition, Joel has been extremely helpful in editing my blogs and placing them on a number of web sites.”
