After you've done all that immense work of writing the book, your baby, the last thing you want to do is mess up the publishing process.
Yet, there are so many choices beyond traditional or independent publishing. There are options like finding a literary agent or wading through the checklists and price variations on self-publishing company sales pages.
Once you start searching for the best option, you also have to wade through the negative comments about no customer service when Artificial Intelligence is publishing your book—or deal with the sting of getting yet another rejection from an agent or a traditional publisher.
The most prominent thought leaders are published authors. Yet, you’ve tried writing a book but don’t get ahead.
You might even have a first chapter that you’ve rewritten a thousand times. You have an idea of what you want to say. You want to make a difference in the world. But overwhelm and insecurity and uncertainty are getting in the way.
Writing the book is just one part of the equation. You then have to figure out how to publish your masterpiece and promote it in a market that launches over 1 million books a year.

“My book is so much better thanks to Tammy’s astute observations and suggestions. She has a gift for boiling down an author’s message to its essential components, and she is a wealth of knowledge about the book industry as a whole. If you’re thinking of becoming an author, hire Tammy. You’ll be glad you did.”
Theresa M. Robinson
“I knew Tammy Plunkett would be the perfect writing coach for me. I wanted someone who would stretch me and hold me accountable, but also someone with whom I would genuinely enjoy working. Tammy is that person. I had a basic idea of what I wanted to say in a book, but it was Tammy who breathed life into the process by providing structure, lending support, asking the tough questions, empathizing through the challenges, helping me to get unstuck, sharing valuable strategies, and keeping me on track. Her style is firm sprinkled with humor and a heavy dose of caring and support – exactly what a procrastinator needs! Tammy did more than coach and guide me through the writing process. She inspired me to see what I could not always see on my own.”
“Without Tammy’s wisdom, support, encouragement and knowledge, I don’t believe I would have published my book”
“Tammy expertly demystified the steps involved in building my business as a result of publishing my first book. Her support was not limited to scheduled coaching sessions; Tammy responded by email and calls on a priority basis. My work with Tammy has helped me to connect with potential clients and build my confidence as an author and a public speaker. Thanks to Tammy’s professional guidance, I feel like sky’s the limit.”
