Welcome!
Below is a collection of documents that have helped my Clients sell thousands of books while building their audience over the past 3 years.

Thanks for checking out High Value Publishing!

We help organizations implement a High Value Publishing model that generates traffic, customer engagement, and revenue for authors, content marketers and publishers.

I’ve worked in publishing for over 20 years, launched dozens of magazines (one sold for over $100M), launched book publishing platforms worth millions and subscription video services. We will work with you and your team to build a roadmap that will rapidly increase the value of your publishing business.

Over the last couple of years I have been helping people to sell more books and build their author business.

So... Why do I do what I do?

In 2002, my 17-year old daughter was killed in an automobile accident in Mexico while serving on the mission field. She left behind a dozen personal journals with the instructions to turn them into a book in the event she should die.

Although I was a magazine publisher, I had never published a book and didn't know where to start.Over the next few years, I was able get a book written, sell thousands of copies, and use the profits to sponsor orphans and widows in three countries. Since then, I've helped hundreds of authors market their book and build an email list of nearly 2 million subscribers. So, I'm here today and I understand the challenges of building your author business and I will to do my best to help you get through it. I've written a few powerful articles below to help you do just that.

How I Published My First Book and Saved Children, is a highly personal look behind the scenes of my self-published book, co-written by my daughter, Malori. I leave out no details in hopes that it will inspire and motivate you to develop a passion-based publishing business that benefits others.I think you're really going to be able to take the information in those articles and blow it out of the water just like my other amazing clients have this year. Enjoy!
