Mentoring

Have you dreamed of publishing a book, but don't know where to start?

I can help!

No matter where you are in the process of creating your book, whether it's a nudge to start writing, someone to keep you accountable along the way, or you have a finished manuscript ready to publish, I can help you every step of your journey.

Whether you want to pick my brains to see what publishing options are available, or have some ongoing sessions where I 'hold your hand' through the writing and publishing process, you've come to the right place.

I have extensive experience with self-publishing via print on demand through Ingram Spark and ebooks through Kindle Direct Publishing, as well as having been traditionally published. I know the ins and outs of getting things set up, working with distributors, as well as tips to help save you money with things like sending out your books to readers.

I understand that everyone's journey is different, so conversations include the information you need. If I don't have the answers at my fingertips, I will find it for you.

Pick My Brains

A one hour session via phone, Zoom, or face to face if you're local to the Latrobe Valley, Victoria, where you can ask me anything about writing and publishing your book. This could include options on getting started with your writing, publishing with Print on Demand, creating ebooks, getting an ISBN, launching your book, or anything else.

Hold My Hand

This is where I give you ongoing support through the publishing process, guiding you through every step of the way. This could include:

  • Finding an editor or designer for your book
  • Looking at the right format for your book (print or ebook)
  • Uploading to Ingram Spark and/or Kindle Direct Publishing
  • Purchasing an ISBN and Legal Deposit copies
  • Planning your book launch
  • Getting pre-orders for your book
  • Crowdfunding campaigns
  • And more

We can lock in a time every week, or have something more flexible.

Sessions are $150 each, or you can join my 3 month program for $1500 which includes Zoom sessions, a private Facebook group, and more to help you with your book.

I do offer flexible fees if you have budget restrictions.

What her clients say

Kate, Journal Creator

Having Melissa guide me through the intricacies of the ‘print on demand’ world has made everything so much clearer for me and has steered me in the right direction to now go ahead and finally have my book published!
She also gave me tips on cost saving that I would absolutely not have thought about or come across had I not had this conversation with her - I can’t recommend her enough!
Thanks so much Melissa! Kate
