There are a variety of ways to market a book. Free Advice: DON’T MARKET YOUR BOOK! Market your brand as an author. Unless you are only going to write ONE book in your lifetime, market and publicize your brand. Sell your pen name’s personality, style, genre, interests, and lifestyle. You may write several books—don’t spend your money promoting just one. Promote your brand and then put all your books under that umbrella.

Our Marketing Optional Services can help you build your platform to promote your brand as an author and increase the sales of your projects. These services can either be up-front fees or ongoing costs. Once a book has established sales, you might even be able to have those costs deducted from the profits, so there is no out-of-pocket expenses to you.


Left Hand Publishers is NOT a vanity press. We will never ask the writer for an investment or to pay any part of the cost of being published. We provide our publishing services as a percentage of revenue which we participate in, once the work sells. Optional Services are available to writers who need assistance in getting their manuscripts and/or their marketing tools honed for a successful and profitable publishing experience. For various consulting services, outside of publishing, we will provide an estimate in advance at no charge. For more information, contact us at .
