As a boutique publishing and strategy firm, Janet and her partners work with authors, entrepreneurs, leaders, change agents, and organizations at all stages to take their ideas, platforms, and publishing visions to the next level. Based on a philosophy of “the right idea, at the right time, for the right audience,” the goal is always to provide immediate creative insight and value that will lead to near- and long-term direction, strategies, and tangible outcomes.
With this guiding principle in mind, we’re agnostic about the right publishing pathway and provide direction for traditional, small press, hybrid, and independent approaches, and everything in between. (In fact, sometimes the real question is: When is the right time to publish and what is the best form for your work, audience, and message?)
Whether you’re working on a book or idea-based initiative, a passion project or your signature work, a unique aspect of our approach is bringing together “content development” (editorial) and “constituency-building” (marketing). The more integrated the editorial, audience, and business development aspects of your project, the more successful it becomes. These efforts become part of your story—all while helping attract readers, partners, publishers, clients, the media, and fans.
Blending inspiration with candor, creative collaboration with hands-on execution, Janet and her team can help bring creativity, insight, and rigor to your best work–always with the perspective of the right approach and pathway for the right idea, audience, and goals.
