What We Do

We’re a small company with a big mission: To make life better for authors and readers. Ambitious? You bet! Just like you.

All people have passions, problems, and practical needs. We believe that books are the very best way to meet folks where they are and bring them to where they want to go.

We publish and help develop books about:

  • leadership, business, and technology
  • personal development and transformation
  • psychology, health, and wellness

We serve the best and brightest authors out there, meeting them wherever they are on their publishing journeys—whether that means concept and proposal development, ghostwriting, editing, marketing and PR, or our full hybrid publishing and distribution program. Want to elevate your brand, accelerate your career as an author, or provide a resource to your clients and customers? We’ve got a program just for you.

The Big Leap Book-Planning Program and VIP Retreat

For those who need help developing their book idea into a professional proposal and publishing plan

This immersive 6-week book-planning program includes a 4-night luxury retreat, allowing you to get away from the day-to-day grind in beautiful, private accommodations, where our team will lovingly facilitate your “Big Leap” into making the book in your heart a reality. With the help of Wonderwell publisher Maggie Langrick, a world-class editor, and a book marketing specialist, you’ll develop a comprehensive, professional book proposal and publishing plan, ready to pitch traditional publishers, self-publish, or get started with a hybrid publisher like us.

Hybrid Publishing: Best Book Program

For entrepreneurial authors with a brilliant book idea and a strong platform

It’s your world-class content and your audience; we believe you’re the one who should reap the greatest rewards from your book. Our job is to develop it, publish it, and distribute it into stores for you. Authors who qualify for our Best Book Program earn royalties of sixty percent on books sold in stores, while also enjoying the freedom to make commission-free direct sales to their audience.

Assisted Self-Publishing: Private Label Program

For authors who want total control and ownership

Not every book needs to be sold in bookstores. If you are writing on a highly niche topic or have a direct channel through which to market and sell your book, assisted self-publishing could be the best path for you. Our Private Label Program features all the same great editorial, design, and production services as our Best Book Program, but without traditional distribution into stores. We create a professionally developed book from your content and set you up as the publisher, under your own imprint. You keep every penny from your sales.

Custom Publishing: Brand Expander Program

For mission-driven brands and organizations

Your organization exists for the same reason ours does: To make the world a better place to live, work, and play. We love nothing more than helping mission-driven brands and organizations to spread the word about the great work they do.

Let’s talk about how publishing can help you to connect with customers, bring your brand to life, or develop a powerful new revenue stream from books published under your own imprint.

Marketing and Publicity

For those who want support from seasoned industry veterans in building their platform and getting the word out about their book

How you market your book will play a critical role in its success, and we can guide you every step of the way—including author branding, launch campaign strategy, email and social media content, advertising, media outreach, and more.
