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.

The Covid-19 pandemic has been quite tough on the creative economy. Events got cancelled, sponsorships got shelved, and sales tanked.

The biggest communication problem we have is that we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply. I wrote down this phrase in my notes because I thought it was powerful and something that I need to remind myself regularly. I only wish I knew where I heard this so I could give proper credit.[…]
I serve on the board of a non-profit organization that supports humanitarian work in remote parts of the world. One of the places we support are the remote tribal regions of Columbia.
