Become "Good Author" Approved!

Becoming known as a “thought leader” and renowned author is about showing up and getting your name out there where your readers will be inspired by your expertise. We’ll help you craft one 500-1000 word article and pitch it to a handpicked online outlet in order to showcase your expertise and build third-party credibility among readers and industry professionals.
Media Training 101
Are you media-ready? Can you handle unexpected questions and time constraints? Learn to convey your message effectively in 4, 30, and 60 minutes, and handle tricky questions gracefully. Our 1-hour Zoom session ensures you're prepared, including room setup and technical equipment assessment. Be the engaging guest media invites back, becoming a valuable resource.
Positioning Your Story
It’s not just who you pitch, it’s what you pitch. Knowing exactly how to position yourself as an expert is the most critical element to media coverage. It’s the beginning of brand YOU. After reviewing your book, we’ll conduct a 1 hour zoom session to uncover exactly your audience, message, angles, what makes you an “expert” and in what subjects. Then we’ll co-create compelling news angles and a pitch you can use right away.
A press kit is the essential go-to for media professionals like producers, hosts, editors, and reporters, making it easier for them to quickly and efficiently understand what you do and why it’s newsworthy. This is your opportunity to control the materials they use to write your story. This includes a designed one-pager with professionally written bio, 3-4 talking points, 10 suggested interview questions, headshot (you provide), social media stats, and credentials.
Based on our read of your book and our work together in the positioning intensive, we’ll develop from scratch a one-page press release that is ready to send out to help you launch your book and include in your press kit.
Option to distribute your release to the news wires for an additional $550.
