Helping authors to help other authors . . .

. . . that’s one of the objectives we are setting for this site and the first one we will implement. We’re gearing up to publish articles from authors with knowledge and experience they’d like to pass on to others . . . and all we will be asking is for 30-day exclusivity to promote and expose your article, after which you can republish it anywhere you’d like. We’re beginning by compiling a list of interested writers, soon after which we will  accept articles on any subject having to do with authorship, book publishing, and all phases of book marketing. Send us a note of your interest using the handy reply form at the bottom of this page. No submissions at this time, please — just let us know who and where you are and what subjects you would like to deal with in original articles aimed at authors everywhere.

Our emphasis will be on self-publishing — but no channel will be overlooked or minimized –and all genres and media are grist for our mill — fiction, non-fiction, print or electronic (e-books, audiobooks). As the articles accumulate we will offer a growing library of “boots-on-the-ground” wisdom for both new and seasoned authors, resources you can use during all phases of your work’s gestation, birth and launching into the book world.

We’re waiting to hear from you. Just use the reply form below to tell us about yourself.

About Paul McNeese

Paul McNeese, BS, CFP (Ret.), is an author and an author services provider who runs his own company, OPA Author Services, through which he coordinates literary creative services and book production logistics for authors, aspiring authors, public speakers, and entrepreneurs who wish to bring their knowledge and expertise to the public through the power of words. His first book, Salespower through Successful Seminars (1984) isout of print because it is dated and much of the material in it is obsolete, but he has begun work on another book, Betterchange: 12 Keys to Personal and Professional Growth, which will see publication in mid-2013. He has also recently completed a CD set based on the newest version of his “Betterchange” seminar, which he will soon begin offering in the Phoenix area, mainly through churches and other spiritual organizations. Personally, Paul has more than 40 years of experience in educating and motivating individuals and groups as a broadcaster, seminar leader, author, publisher and speaker. An honors graduate of Northeastern University in Boston, Paul earned simultaneous undergraduate degrees in marketing and music and has done graduate work in psychology, economics and public policy at UCLA. A Certified Financial Planner (CFP) for many years (1982 – 1993), he is a graduate of the College for Financial Planning in Denver. In pursuit of other interests over the years, he also completed a two-year associate degree curriculum in counseling at Cypress College in Los Angeles and an advanced management program in not-for-profit financial management at California State University, Fullerton. Formerly a member of the now defunct Arizona Book Publishers Association and currently a member of many other literary organizations, he most enjoys working with authors and imaginative content producers, editing good writing, designing and supervising the design of book interiors and covers, and assembling and directing creative teams that take books from concept to cash register. Although he does not engage in services directly related to the marketing of books, he has assembled a consortium of experts in the many disciplines required for successful book marketing, publicity and promotion, and he adheres strongly to the conviction that the best – and most necessary – marketing ingredient (beyond the literary quality of the book itself) is the author!
