What we're about

Author Success Coach exists to help both trad- and indie-published authors market their books through hands-on workshops with expert guidance - together we'll build your Facebook or Amazon ads, set up your Newsletters and optimize your blurb/cover (amongst other things).

Hi, I'm Mike Grist - I'm a writer like you. I've written over 20 novels in thriller, sci-fi and fantasy genres, with over 100,000 lifetime sales (see my page on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Michael-John-Grist/e/B00ERL0LAW)). I've made those sales because I've learned how to market.

Now I want to help you do the same.

I'm a Business teacher at Birkbeck University, and have been teaching for nearly 20 years. I stay on top of all the book marketing podcasts, courses, forums, and books on best practises. I also co-run the London Indie Authors (LIA (https://www.meetup.com/London-Indie-Authors/)) Meetup group, where fellow author-marketeers share their knowledge every month. You're very welcome to join that group for free right now - but the LIA has its limits, and recently members pointed those out to me.

They wanted practical help. They requested workshops where they could get that practical help.

So here we are.

Author Success Coach workshops exist to walk you step-by-step through the process of making a Facebook ad, or setting up a Newsletter list, or optimizing your blurb - all while explaining the underlying theory. I guarantee that after a few hours invested you'll have achieved something concrete - an ad set up and running, a newsletter synced through your website, a new and optimized set of targeting key words.

That's a firm guarantee. I will give you your money back if you leave one of my workshops without achieving the target goal (subject to a few provisos).

Some of the things we'll address in workshops:
- Facebook ads
- Amazon ads
- Bookbub ads and Featured Deals
- Setting up and Running a Newsletter
- Writing to Market
- Optimizing Your Cover
- Optimizing Your Copy (blurb)

Take a look at the workshops. It's also possible to book me for one-to-one mentoring - get in touch directly at michaeljohngrist@hotmail.com for rates and times.
