So, You Want to Become a Published Author

The good news is, we can help you get there. You’ve finally finished your manuscript and are considering
your publishing options. It’s overwhelming (we know because we’ve been there ourselves). A quick search
leaves you with more questions than answers:

Should I self-publish?

How long will this take?

Is my book worth publishing?

Go the traditional route?

Does my book need editing?

Do I have something unique to say?

How much will it cost?

How do I market my book?

Am I doing this right?

​Do I need to hire someone to manage this for me?

If you’re feeling lost, you’re in the right place.

Get the quality and prestige of a traditional publisher with the
creative freedom and high royalties of self-publishing.

How It Works

How It Works

Submit Your Manuscript

As a professional hybrid publisher, we only publish high-quality books that meet and exceed industry standards. Our award-winning books are eligible for reviews by traditional review outlets and are respected worldwide.

Publish With Us in Under a Year

If our acquiring editor approves your manuscript, you will be invited to join the PYP Author Family. We bring you along for the ride as we transform your manuscript into the book you’ve been dreaming of.

Get Organized

One of the hardest parts of publishing is not knowing what you need to do and when. This can make it very difficult to stay on track, while also promoting your book to your audience. In private one-on-one sessions, we sit down together and map out the moving pieces and parts to set you up for success.

Return on Investment

We know publishing comes with many expenses so we will work with you so you can see how much you have already spent, how much you still need to spend, and how you can quickly make that money back. It’s not just the individual sale of one book, but also selling books in large quantities, and the new consulting and/or speaking opportunities you will create.

Accountability

Through the entire publishing process, we will be by your side as a project manager ensuring you are staying on deadline and within your budget, while not adding to your stress.

Professional Edits

Our editors will work tirelessly to ensure your manuscript meets industry standards, so you publish a high-quality, well-edited book that is a true reflection of you, your brand, and your business.

Creative Control

Often during the traditional publishing process you, as the author, lose creative control over your book. We will work with you to help you sell your book to your audience, so that means you get full creative control.

Strong Design

We know the ins-and-outs of effective industry-standard design, so you don’t have to worry about missing the mark. Our designers will develop a unique and gripping cover design to captivate your potential readers and the right interior layout for your book to ensure a smooth and seamless reader experience.

Distribution

How your book ends up in the hands of your reader is one of the most important steps and deciding which distribution path is the best for your book is imperative. Different books require different distribution paths, which we will identify for you.

Strategic Marketing

You’re not on your own with marketing—we’ll help you develop and execute a strategic marketing approach that ensures your readers will find, buy, and share your book.

Working with Publish Your Purpose was a fascinating process; pulling back the curtains and looking at what it actually takes to publish your book once you submit your manuscript versus what my expectations were.

Jenn and her team collaborated with me to understand the timeline and all of the steps in the process – we were even able to come in ahead of some of our deadlines! And at the end of the process we published a book I’m so proud of.

—Eileen Scully
In The Company of Men

Jenn and her team were really able to talk out my vision.

I recognized in writing my book that while I am an expert in psychology and Urban Trauma, I needed to find a partner with an expertise in publishing, that could create an achievable framework for me to get my book completed. And that’s exactly what PYP provided for me. And here I am, a published author!

—Dr. Maysa Akbar
Urban Trauma & Beyond Ally

Jenn and the entire PYP team have been phenomenal publishing partners.

They didn’t just publish my book, they coached me, guided me, and gently provided insightful feedback. I know other publishers don’t provide the same level of personalized service. I found it extremely rewarding to work with them.

—Fern Pessin
I'll Be Right There

I knew that running my business didn’t allow me to fully focus on publishing my book and I needed to find a publishing partner.

The experts at Publish Your Purpose were able to guide me through the process while also allowing me to focus on my day to day duties of business ownership, resulting in a book that is not only a work of love, but also a wonderful marketing tool.

—Cathi Nelson
Photo Organizing Made Easy

I knew from both my professional background in sourcing and witnessing some of my friends painful self-publishing experiences, that when writing and publishing my book, I was going to need to outsource to an expert. Jenn and Team PYP proved to be just that, providing me with a book that was done well, done correctly, and highlights my leadership expertise.

—Jamie S Crump
Backstage Pass

I interviewed other publishers before I met Jenn and their main focus was solely just producing a book.

The difference in working with Jenn and her team is they not only supported my passion and purpose through this challenging process, but they shared in them and kept me focused as well. Thank you, Jenn, for being a great coach!
