Publish Your Book
You need a publishing partner who understands the latest technology, market realities, and marketing strategies.
With close to a million new titles published each year, competition for sales and exposure is tremendous. Traditional publishing doesn't work or isn't available for the vast majority of authors. Fewer than 5% of books are published this way. You spend months "pitching" your book before finally giving up and choosing another path. In the meantime, precious exposure and sales have been lost.
What about self-publishing? Most authors who go this route wind up with an inferior product with little to no real marketing strategy or support. A potentially great message gets improperly developed and, as a result, sales and impact are diminished.
Consider HigherLife's unique collaborative publishing model as the ideal balance between traditional and self-publishing. You retain your rights and benefit from a full team of gifted writers, editors, designers, and marketing strategists who know how to artfully craft your message. Our work is customized and tailored to help you achieve your specific goals and reach your unique audience.

Most authors I know who write a book feel the need to tell the reader everything they know about a subject. I contend that’s the wrong way to write a book. Why? Because what you have to offer your customer is way too much to be packaged in just one book. A better strategy is[…]
Should your book be a paperback or a hardback? What about the size of the book? There’s not a simple formula or a cookie-cutter answer, but there are several factors that you should take into consideration. What will the market bear? Is price a consideration?

When you have something important you want to communicate with an audience, I’ve learned there are two very important words you need to constantly be asking yourself.
