The Author’s Companion is a concise guide that has been designed to help authors at all stages of their writing journey. It originated as a resource for our publishing company’s author base. Initially intended for internal use, we realised it had the potential to benefit the wider author community.

Unlike motivational books that simply inspire you to write, “The Author’s Companion” delves into practical techniques, exercises and approaches that assist in crafting a compelling book. Backed by data-driven analysis, it offers valuable insights that will help you understand both the publishing industry and your target audience. By highlighting common mistakes made by authors during the writing and publishing processes, this book equips you with the knowledge to avoid these pitfalls and succeed in the literary world. Benefit from the wealth of experience gained from publishing over 2500+ books.

In the era of self-publishing, the absence of editorial gatekeepers has affected the overall quality of books being released. Countless books are published every day, but only a select few truly achieve success.

Hence, The Author’s Companion addresses two distinct groups of authors:

  • those with good content but lacking experience in writing or publishing
  • those with poor content due to a lack of writing skills

It serves as a guiding light for both these groups of authors, providing them with invaluable support and expertise. For authors new and experienced, this book will indeed serve as a companion on their journey towards publishing best-sellers.
