About the Founder
Dawn James started Publish and Promote in 2010 after her own successful journey of becoming a self-published author. During her first year as an author, she had the pleasure of being interviewed on over 95 shows, successfully secured global book distribution and released 3 print runs in 12 months.
Hundreds of people approached Dawn asking “How did you do it?” That’s when she realized there was a void to fill in the publishing industry. She realized aspiring authors needed education about the ‘business’ of publishing and promoting to be successful. Dawn initially held one-day workshops across the country, which later transformed into an online e-Guide which is available for download. After building a team of talented professionals to work with her, their business model now offers self-publishing support, education, project management and consulting.
Before launching PublishandPromote.ca Dawn spent over 20 years working in various senior management and director roles overseeing finance, marketing, information technology and strategic planning and execution for national and multinational corporations. She has enjoyed working in several industries including publishing and post secondary education. Dawn brings a wealth of experience to the clients she works with today. The Publish and promote team work with clients in person, by phone and virtually (Skype, Zoom, etc), and offer a project-based fee or hourly rates for our services to suit your needs and your budget.
