Where it Began
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
- Project management
She works with clients in person, by phone or virtually (Skype, Zoom) and offers both project-based fees or hourly rates to suit her clients’ needs and budget.
