Don't be bamboozled! You owe it to yourself to learn how publishing really works and what publishers don't want you to know...
"The written page is the only way the dead can teach the unborn!"
-- Abraham Lincoln
My goals in serving you are plain and simple: 1) to help you publish your book and become a best-selling author, 2) to turn your book into a lead-generating tool to promote your business and attract more clients, and 3) to use your book (fiction or non-fiction) to secure for you more speaking engagements, more coaching clients, and more consulting opportunities. Bottom line, I want to help you build your information empire and put more money in your bank account so you will be less dependent on working for the man!
I am thrilled that you are taking the time to explore all of your publishing options. Having more than 20 years of experience in the publishing, book-marketing, coaching, and professional speaking industries, I am confident you have come to the right place. I strongly encourage you to watch the video and view the testimonials to the right to get a sense of my passion and my purpose.

As you will learn from reading below, everything in the publishing world has changed in recent years due to more publishing options available to you, the increased interested in eBooks, and the great number of people selecting self-publishing as the route to pursue for their books. However, creating a best-seller is still a lengthy process that takes solid commitment. In fact, according to the Publishers Marketing Association, 98% of authors will never sell more than 2,000 books. Industry guru Dan Poynter is on record as saying that the average author sells around 250 books. Well, as daunting as these numbers are, I have cracked the secret to publishing and book-marketing, and I would like to show you how you too can do the same and achieve phenomenal success with your book.
When I began my quest to get published back in 1996, I was as overwhelmed as you currently may be. I had no one to turn to for answers to all of my questions. Whether or not you invest in my publishing system, I am confident that the information here will help you tremendously. I would like to be your resource to answer all your questions, eliminate the anxiety you feel, and provide you with the publishing, book-marketing, and speaking solutions you seek. With this goal in mind, I hope you will contact me to schedule a no obligation, complimentary consultation to answer all your questions about publishing, book-marketing, coaching, and professional speaking.
I feel your pain and confusion. I was once in your shoes: Overwhelmed by the process and with no one to turn to in order to find the solutions. As a result, I spent countless hours doing research by making phone calls, sending emails, reading book after book, and finally, discovering the answers. With all the research behind me, I still made mistakes. Therefore, let me help you simplify the process, answer all your questions, become your resource, your guide, your mentor, your coach to take you from where you are now, to where you want to be as a successfully published, best-selling author, or highly-paid speaker, and sought-after coach.
“Why you, Patrick?” you may be wondering. “What makes Patrick Snow qualified?” Perhaps these are the questions entering your mind. If I were in your shoes, I would be asking the same questions. Therefore, I would like to ask you to perform your due diligence and see whether you can find another coach who has achieved the same level of success in this industry, and more importantly, who is willing to share his or her secrets with you. See, I have several friends who have sold more than one million copies of their books; however, they do not have the time nor the bandwidth to work with you personally and share their secrets with you like I do. Therefore, I would like to let you know my qualifications right up-front. Then I will let you know how being an author and publishing coach all started for me. As you will learn, my success did not all happen overnight, but rather, it has taken close to 20 years of blood, sweat, and tears to achieve what some may refer to as an overnight success. As you will read below, there is nothing about my story that occurred overnight.
At 45 years old, I am an author with a finished two-book deal with John Wiley & Sons. Wiley happens to be the number one business publisher in the world, capturing 15% market share. Wiley is a $3 billion per year company and is more than 200 years old. I successfully did my two-book deal and was grateful to receive a very lucrative advance from them. More importantly, I made this deal without going through a literary agent, as I wanted to keep all the royalties for myself. If your goal is to get published through New York, I can coach you through this process and share with you both of my book proposals that worked. Do note that the odds are against you since traditional publishers only publish 2% of all the manuscripts they read. By all means, they get many, many more than they can read. A literary agent friend of mine is on record as stating that if you have a manuscript complete, your chances of landing a traditional NY publishing deal is one in a thousand.
My story is that since 2001, I have sold more than 150,000 copies of both Creating Your Own Destiny and The Affluent Entrepreneur. With international sales, this number may be closer to 250,000 copies. My books have been translated into five languages and have been sold in 108 countries on six continents throughout the world. I have also been featured as a contributing author in numerous other books including Chicken Soup for the Soul: Life Lessons for Mastering the Law of Attraction. My book and family photo were featured as a December 5th, 2002 cover story in USA TODAY. I have also been featured in The New York Times and hundreds of other national publications over the years. I have been a featured guest on more than 450 stations on both radio and TV (thousands more with syndication). More importantly, I have achieved all of this recognition by serving as my own publicist. I can show you how you too can save tens of thousands of dollars and do the same without hiring expensive and often disappointing publicity experts.
As a professional speaker, I have given more than 2,200 speeches throughout the world with about 1,900 of them being paid. My current speaking fee is $25K USD. I have addressed audiences from 25 to 2,500 as far away as Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Santiago, Chile, Lima, Peru, Guatemala City, Guatemala and all over North America, including virtually all 50 U.S. states. My talks have been as short as 30 minutes or as long as three consecutive days.
As a coach, I have performed small business and entrepreneurship coaching to countless others. I have served as a publishing coach, book-marketing coach, and professional speaking coach to over 500 entrepreneurs from all over the U.S. as well as clients who reside in Europe and Asia and everywhere in between.
It all started for me back in 1986 when I was 17 years old and the captain of my high school football team in Michigan. As the captain, I was designated by my coach as the guy who would deliver the pre-game speech to my teammates to inspire them to play at their highest levels. This experience is what lit a fire in me to be a public speaker. The problem was that back then I did not know you could make a living as a speaker, let alone know anyone who was an author. Therefore, I took one speech class in high school, and another in college, but ultimately, I graduated with a degree in Political Science from the University of Montana. I moved to Seattle, got a job in Sales, but started to moonlight in the speaking business as a hobby.
Between the ages of 22 and 26, I gave 300 speaking engagements and I failed each and every time in my attempt to get paid. See, I would speak at the Rotary meeting, Kiwanis meeting, churches, schools, Boy Scouts, FBLA, DECA—anywhere I could speak I would go speak. Each time, I failed to get paid. I got free breakfast, free lunch, free dinner, and every now and again, I would get lucky and score a free pen or a free mug! Finally, I'd had enough, and as a Christian, I had a “come to Jesus” talk and asked “Why am I unsuccessful in turning my passion for speaking into my profession of speaking?”
The answer I got was: “If I wanted what others had, I needed to do what other did, and I would get what others had gotten.” See, I studied the career paths of my mentors: Les Brown, Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, Dr. Stephen Covey, Mark Victor Hansen, and many others, and ALL of them had one thing in common. Each had successfully written and self-published a book to launch his speaking, coaching, and consulting career. As a result of recognizing this factor, I decided that the only way for me to become a professional speaker was to write and publish a book.
Therefore at age 26, I put together a query letter for a book and sent it off to about 50 literary agents and publishers in New York. Most of them never acknowledged receipt, but those who did all rejected me and turned me down. As a result, I stumbled across Dan Poynter's book titled, The Self-Publishing Manual. Having read it, I soon realized that the only way for me to guarantee that I would ever get published and become a professional speaker was to write and self-publish my own book. With this in mind, I spent the next five years working my day job in sales and little by little writing my book.
In July of 2001, after five years of working on my book and having spent $20,000 of my own money, I successfully self-published Creating Your Own Destiny in soft cover at 140 pages. Two months later, I held my first book release party with 65 people in attendance. This event led to my first paid speaking engagement of $500 for a local real estate company. From there, everything started to happen for me, and I can trace all my success back to my decision to self-publish my book in 1996. If you desire to write and publish your book and get paid as a speaker or sought-after coach, I can help you do the same and save you time and money in the process.
Soon after my book was published, people started approaching me to ask about the process of writing and publishing a book. They wanted to know who was my editor, proofreader, typesetter, cover designer, how and where I secured my ISBN# and Library of Congress#, where I printed my book (China, U.S., or Canada), and finally, how I got my books into Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and bookstores worldwide. As a result, in 2002, I launched ThePublishingDoctor.com (also known as BestSellerBookCoaching.com), and I spent all my time when I was not on stage speaking in helping others to replicate my success by teaching them the publishing process. I have developed a 55-Step, 16-Page Best-Seller Publishing Coaching Road Map that to this day I instruct all of my clients to follow to achieve success. This resource is loaded with information about all my vendors and suppliers that I have qualified over the years, and all of whom give preferential treatment and pricing to my clients.
With this background now disclosed, you can see that I did all the hard work so I can successfully save you lots of time and money when you pursue writing a book. I have never found anyone else in the marketplace who can accurately describe and explain the three publishing options every budding author needs to understand and choose from in order to succeed or fail in this business. Therefore, let me do my best to educate you on your three options, plus explain a fourth option that is more of a prototype option.
Option A: The traditional New York publisher. This publishing goal is one many have because they feel in some way that they need a third party to validate or substantiate the worthiness of their work. However, this route is not really an option for most because authors who hold out will wait 10-20 years for their manuscript to get picked up and still are left with the disappointment of being rejected. The ONLY reason I selected this route after selling 150,000 copies was because as a publishing coach, it gave me more credibility, but more importantly, it gave me the knowledge to teach others how or why not to go this route. Not only do you have less than a 2% chance of getting picked up by a NY publisher, but the reality is that it just does not make financial sense to go this route even if you have an offer on the table. Most advances are now $5K or less, and in actuality, the only thing these publishers really do for you is to pay for the production of the book. If you can afford to produce your own book, this option does not make sense for you. Not only that—the publisher will own virtually 100% of your book, it will make every last decision when it comes to your title and cover, and as a result, you lose all control. If you are Donald Trump or Bill Clinton, then sure a $1M advance and hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on marketing your book makes sense. But if you are Patrick Snow, a publisher does not have it in his budget to do any marketing for your book. Hear me again: The NY publisher will do NOTHING for your book. Without question, I think Wiley is the best publisher in the business, but with its hands being tied, it has only produced an email interview, and a guest spot on a Teleseminar for me. This is nothing against Wiley; it is just the reality of the publishing business, which loses money on 98% of its authors.
Option B: The Internet Publisher(some call these companies Print On Demand Publishing—POD—but really, they are just Internet Publishers). If you were to google “publishing” on the Internet, the first 100 results are these companies dangling out their bait for you to bite on. I will not mention names since this is a public site, but if you call me, I will gladly tell all and share names. Hear me loud and clear: these companies are all scammers because they will charge you a bunch of money up-front to publish your books, and they again get you on the back end when they mark up the printing of your books: a double whammy! At the end of the day, they will rarely, if ever, give you the finished files of your book (PDF file of cover and PDF file of interior layout). Whoever has these files controls the printing of your book. Whoever controls printing of your book retains your profits. Of course, this situation is not fair, and if everyone knew this situation were going on, these companies would all be out of business. As you will learn, you want to be in charge of the print process and never under any circumstance let a third party get between you and the printer or you will lose all your profits. What these companies do is sell you your own book for $12 per copy; then they take your print order and go to their print shop and order your books at $4 each and then keep an $8 profit off your order (these numbers are just rough estimates, but hopefully, you get the point). In my system, I will introduce you to a dozen printers who can print your books at $4 per book, allowing you to keep $16 on a $20 book. Or if you would like, I can introduce you to printers in China that can print your book for $1.50 per book, leaving you an $18.50 profit per book. If I were you, I would do anything and everything to avoid these Internet Publishers like the plague. The bottom line is, if you are paying $12 per book, you cannot give away review copies to influential people in this industry, or you will go broke doing so. Later, I will teach you how and why it is so very important to give away these review copies.
Option C: Self-Publishing. This is the best option and the only option I recommend to everyone. This option is the only way to guarantee that you will keep published and offers the best chance for you to succeed financially in this industry! This is the same route that Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, Edgar Allan Poe, Henry David Thoreau, Stephen King, and virtually anybody who is somebody in the publishing industry has done. “Why?” you might ask. Because self-publishing is the only way to guarantee that you will ever get published! Not only that, but you get to make every last decision, retain all control of the book, and most importantly, you get to keep 100% of the profits. Well then, what is the downside to this option? The only downside is that you have to pay for 100% of the book production process. That is it. For this reason, I strongly encourage all of my clients to keep their day jobs and use their paychecks as seed money to invest in their book projects. Your day job income ultimately becomes the fuel for your book project. The best part about this type of seed money (as opposed to other forms of seed money: angel investors, credit cards, etc.) is that you have earned it and you don't need to pay it back.
Option D: Prototype Books. Many authors frequently ask me about companies like Amazon's CreateSpace or Lulu. Well, I look at these companies as nothing more than a prototype print shop. If you need 5 books, or maybe 20 books for a speech you need to give at the end of the week, then have them print a handful of books for you here and there. But once you dig into this resource, you will find they are so limiting that really their best and only purpose is for them to be used as prototype books. People always ask me, “Hard cover or soft cover?” And my answer is always the same. You should do what the New York Publishing community does. They publish books in hard cover first, and then a year later, they will reprint the book in a soft cover format. The challenge is that hard cover books will cost approximately $5 more per book to print, but as a result, you can also sell your book for $5 more. Therefore, if you can afford it, I strongly recommend that you print in hard cover. A major problem with Amazon's CreateSpace is that it does not have the ability to print in hard cover. Also, the more you investigate this option, the more you will realize that self-publishing is the best and only option that makes sense if you want to make money with your book and retain all control.
So once your book is published, how does it become a best-seller, and how do you define best-seller? Industry guru Dan Poynter defines a best-seller as having sold 35,000 copies. Additionally, you can achieve best-seller status by becoming a Top 20 seller on Amazon in any one given week. Amazon's Top 20 sellers are reported to The New York Times, and that is how they become New York Times best-sellers. There are other lists as well: Amazon best-seller, Newsweek best-seller, and USA TODAY best-seller. So how does one make any of these lists? Well, in order to do so, you need to publish a world-class book that is compelling and gets people's attention so much that they are willing to give you their hard-earned money for your book. I also believe that up to a point (perhaps 300 pages or so) the “fatter the book, the fatter the paycheck. What I mean is that your book will not get any respect in the marketplace if it is 100 pages or less. Therefore, I recommend that you shoot for 200-300 pages.
A Best-Selling Book Must Have Five Attributes:
1. Lifetime Promotion of Book: A successful book is 5% writing and 95% promotion. Writing a book is kind of like raising a child; you experience nine months of gestation and 18-22 years of your life raising your child. The same is true with raising a book. If every day, you commit 30-60 minutes to promoting your book for the rest of your life, you will achieve mega best-selling results. I have been promoting my first book now for over 12 years every single day. As your coach, I will be with you for a lifetime helping you to do the same.
2. World Class Cover Design: The best way to leave a good first impression is with a fantastic cover design. Just like you wouldn't leave creating your resume to a kid, don't let anyone do your cover design unless he or she is a professional with a degree in graphic design and experienced in cover designs. Your book has eight seconds to capture the attention of buyers, and if the cover appeals to them, they will open your book; if not, they won't even bother taking it off the shelf. As your coach, I will strongly encourage you to use one of my many recommended cover designers approved in my publishing road map.
3. Compelling Title: Often, your book will appear in print without your cover being displayed. Therefore, your title must be so compelling that it captures the reader's attention on its own and accurately communicates your book's content. I spent $3,000 learning three award-winning title formulas designed to help you create a best-seller. As your coach, I will share with you these three title formulas so you can apply them to your book.
4. Introduction of Book: Studies show that an average book is read through only the first 22-28 pages. Are you as guilty as I am of picking up a book and struggling through the first 20 pages, only never to pick up the book again? There are five components of creating an amazing introduction to insure that your book gets read. As your coach, I will teach you these five requirements which will assure you of having a world class Introduction.
5. The Actual Content: If you are going to spend 500 hours writing your book, don't you think it makes sense to invest in the right resources to insure that your book has the best chance of being successful? Let's face it; the world is full of amazingly, well-written books that have great content but suffer from having lousy titles and poorly designed covers. As your coach, I will not let you bring your book to market unless it is world class in every way and puts your best image forward to the marketplace.
With all the steps involved in birthing a book and bringing it to print: writing the manuscript, editing, proofreading, ISBN, Library of Congress, typesetting, title, subtitle, tagline, testimonials, cover design, bar codes, pricing, printing, eBooks, and book distribution, you may be overwhelmed with all the steps involved and not know where to begin. As your coach, I will take you by the hand and walk you through the entire process using my 16-page, 55-step Publishing Coaching Road Map. I will serve as your coach, accountability partner, production coordinator, and mentor for life with no expiration date. Most importantly, I will build your production schedule and create a timeline that fits your schedule and goal, whether it be ten weeks or ten months.
With all the steps involved, you may just be overwhelmed and ask yourself whether this process is really worth it? Well, I can assure you, having been paid what many others earn in 3-6 months to speak for 45 minutes, it is all worth it. Your book will become the single greatest marketing secret you can produce to promote in the best way possible the product or service you bring to the world. Your book will become your hook, your attraction magnet, your lead-generating tool to attract more speaking, coaching, and consulting opportunities—all of which will generate money for your bank account. Let's be honest: there is nothing else you can do to boost your creditability in the marketplace, increase your credentials, and better market your products and services than writing, publishing, and promoting your book. You will get all kinds of free publicity that you would never be able to afford on your own. Best of all, I will take you by the hand and guide you every step of the way.
In my situation, due to having published a book, I was featured on the front cover of USA TODAY, and jokingly, without even being a murderer or a terrorist. As your coach, I will show you how you can serve as your own publicist and be positioned for the hundreds of publicity opportunities available to authors every day. I spent $3,000 of my hard-earned money and over 30 days of my time getting media trained by the best in the industry. I used the same media trainer that all of the biggest author names of our times have used. As a result, as your coach, I can and will in 60 minutes get you media trained and give you the confidence to soar as your own publicist so you will shine during the interview process.
So you may be thinking, “Okay, Patrick, just cut to the chase; how much does it cost, how long does it take to get published, and what do I get for investing in your program?” Let me answer that, but first, let me say that my coaching costs less than a semester at a community college. With one semester of college under your belt, you are not going to be in a position to make a living, but with your book being published, you will find yourself in a position to earn money and supplement your income on revenues from speaking, coaching, consulting, and book sales. It is important to know that if you are writing a non-fiction book, you will earn your “Return On Investment” quicker in speaking and coaching fees than you will in actual book sales. Eventually, however, you will achieve your “Return On Investment” in book sales—it just won't happen overnight.
So how much does it cost and how long does it take? Remember, I spent five years and $20,000 publishing the first edition of my book, and today, I have earned more than a million dollars in this industry (perhaps closer to $2M) over 10 to 15 years, so I can assure you that it is quite possible to do very well if you don't ever give up on yourself—or give up on this process. My clients get their books published in 3-12 months, depending on all the other things going on in their lives. I even had one client publish her book from concept to book in hand in seven weeks. The total expenditure to get your book published (including my coaching fee) will be anywhere from $6,000 to $12,000,depending on hard cover or soft cover, if you use a ghostwriter or not, the number of copies you print, whether your book is 125 pages or 425 pages, and many other variables. Before, I share what the investment is in my coaching, let me tell you the six ways I will serve as your coach and then give you in bullet point form all the steps I will walk you through.
I, Patrick Snow, Will Serve As Your Coach For Life in the Following Roles:
1. I will serve as your publishing coachand walk you through the entire process of publishing your book. You will get my 16-page, 55-step Publishing Coaching Road Map. This resource is basically all my Intellectual Property that I have developed over the last 20 years. All my vendors and approved suppliers are listed on this list, and together, they will take you from where you are now to having a New York quality world class book in print. We will accomplish this goal with a 45-60 minute one-on-one call every week throughout the process. I will guide you through all the steps involved to be successful in writing and publishing your book. I will teach you how to create a book outline, include stories in your book, why and where to include exercises, and share with you the writing formula to insure your book's success. You will complete these homework assignments each week, and I will give you more to do every step along the way. Additionally, you will get six live group coaching sessions by phone every week. Every Monday at 8 AM PST, and then every Monday-Friday at 12 Noon PST. If you take advantage of all my weekly resources, we will talk by phone up to seven times per week to insure that you are on track and on pace to publish your book to meet your deadline. In addition to the seven weekly calls, you will have unlimited email access and text access to me for life.
Finally, you will gain access to attend my Best-Seller Publishing Institute (BSPI), which I hold four times per year (twice per year in Seattle, and twice per year in Maui). These three-day conferences are literally life-changing. There will be approximately 25 of my other clients at these events for you to network with, and together, I will take all of you through three days and 24 hours of material to teach you everything you need to know on publishing, book-marketing, professional speaking, coaching, and consulting. Additionally, you will get an opportunity to give your live speech at my event. By the end of the conference, you will find yourself having 25 new best friends, all supporting you in your journey. See the box at the bottom of this page that announces the dates of my next Best-Seller Publishing Institute. Below are a few testimonials from recent BSPI participants:
“Patrick's resources, knowledge, and experience are priceless!”
— Jeff Bow, Executive Coach
“Using the material learning at BSPI, I have earned eight book awards including ‘Best Business Book in 2010.' Patrick's coaching made it all possible.”
— Brett Clay, Professional Speaker
“I can't tell you how much I got out of the Best-Seller Publishing Institute. No exaggeration, it was the best three day conference I've ever attended (on any subject)! I am so glad to have Patrick Snow as my coach.” — Katie Munoz, Business Owner
“I would rank Patrick Snow right up there with all of my other NBA Hall of Fame coaches I have worked with over the years.”
— James Donaldson, NBA All-Star, Professional Speaker
2. I will serve as your book-marketing coach. Once your book is published, I thenput on my book-marketing hat and become your book-marketing coach. I will help you immediately to schedule and coordinate your book-release party. I will give you my 52-Step book-marketing plan, and together, we can determine which marketing strategies best fit your personality to achieve your sales goals. I will help you become your own publicist so you can leverage both social media and traditional media outlets to promote your work. I will put you in touch with my foreign rights agent should you decide to have your book translated into many foreign languages. I will show you how to leverage your book and give you a lead-generating tool to drive revenue to your bank account. Most importantly, I will share with you every strategy I have used over the last 12 years to sell 150,000 copies of my books and encourage you to implement many of my successful book-marketing strategies.
3. I will serve as your professional speaking coach. If you desire to become a speaker, I will serve as your professional speaking coach and show you how to set your fee, negotiate with meeting planners, find paid engagements, create speaker contracts, sell from the platform, develop a Speaker One Sheet, distribute your speaker highlight video, fill your calendar with bookings, do both keynotes and workshops to build your brand, land “spin-off” engagements, encourage you to execute my seven steps to get booked, and much, much more. I will critique your speech to help you take years and years off your learning curve. I will share with you all the knowledge I have learned over the years, giving 2,100 speeches to arm you with knowledge, skills, and confidence to own the stage and leave the audience wanting more.
4. I will serve as your “coaching” coach. Entrepreneur Magazine is on record as stating that coaching is one of the hottest industries to pursue in the future since virtually everyone wants to super-accelerate their rate for achieving success in life. I believe your book is your speech, your speech is your book. I also believe your book is your coaching practice and your coaching practice is your book. Therefore, I strongly encourage you to leverage your book and speaking audience and become a coach. I will show you how to use your book and speaking as tools to land more coaching clients, raise your fees, and work from home, building your empire even if you don't have coaching certification. With a book, you have a hook to attract coaching clients, and I can and will show you with each and every speech, how you can land a half-dozen new coaching clients.
5. I will serve as your consulting coach. If you want to pursue consulting opportunities, I can show you how to use your book and your speaking to attract these opportunities in your life. It is easier than you think (if you are published). Without a book, it is a very long and winding road to discover how to close these lucrative consulting gigs. I will introduce you to my “Revenue Evolution Ladder” and show you how to climb this ladder to achieve the success you desire and implement consulting as a method to diversity and growing your revenue base.
6. I will serve as your small business coach. Finally, having authored The Affluent Entrepreneur, I will become your small business coach and show you exactly what it takes to prosper as an entrepreneur. These strategies that I coach and teach are not learned in school or anywhere else. These lessons I have learned the hard way in owning businesses for more than 20 years. Most importantly, my goal will be for you to attain your revenue goals as a small business owner, including how to use your book, speaking, and coaching as tools to boost your revenue and achieve your income goals.

I have had numerous clients, after working with me for 12-24 months, tell me that if they had known all of what they would get by investing in my system, they would have paid $50,000 for all of the above. The reality is that most folks can't afford this type of investment. Therefore, the good news for you is that your investment is much more reasonable than $50,000. I have four options from which you can select, depending on your level of need. I accept Visa, MasterCard, Amex, and Discover (but give a $50 discount if you pay by certified bank check).
This is my personal protégé program where I travel to spend a day with you and we sit down in person for eight hours to build your business from the ground up. You can either come to me, or I will come to you. Additionally, you can hit the road with me and travel to my speaking engagements, where I will show you this business from behind the curtain and share with you all the secrets to reduce your learning curve. This option also includes attendance to BSPI and free re-attends to as many future BSPI's as you would like to attend.
This is my publishing, book-marketing, and speaking coaching package, and it includes everything you have read above except the protégé package. Aside from that, you will get all of the services described above in all the bullet points as well as in items 1-6 above. This option also includes attendance to BSPI and free re-attends to as many future BSPI's as you would like to attend.
This package is for you if you already have your book published, and hence, do not need my publishing coaching services. You may also just want to learn to become a professional speaker and you are struggling with book sales. If you are already published and want help with speaking and book-marketing, this is your best option. This option also includes attendance to BSPI and free re-attends to as many future BSPI's as you would like.
If you are already a professional speaker and a published author and are doing quite well, and you just wants to boost your results, then this option is for you. This packages include two, one-hour phone consultations.
I have clients who have traded me a 1968 Ford Mustang (which I later traded for a 1986 Porsche 944 turbo), 2009 BMW Motorcycle, $7,500 blown-glass artwork by an Italian artist, and even a week in Hawaii at their time share, all for my coaching services. Let's face it, you may have been impacted by a tough economy in recent times and your cash flow may have also been impacted, making it difficult to invest in your book project. But I believe in you and your potential so much that I am willing to trade my services for your tangible assets, and together, we can achieve a win/win result!
The best part of my coaching is that there is no expiration date whatsoever. So in other words, I am offering you a “Rest of Your Life” coaching program! At my age, I plan on being around a long time. Also, if you dialed in to my call every weekday, you would have access to me, and my intellectual property, 240 times per year. This is the deal of the century. Remember these are live calls, not recorded. If you hung with me for 10 years, then you would get 2,400 hours of material, content, and inspiration from me. This is an insane amount of hours, time, and value that you will get from me. Therefore, you might be wondering how I can make you such an offer? Well, with six group coaching calls per week, I am leveraging technology, leveraging conference calls, and leveraging attendance to my Best-Seller Publishing Institute. The reality is, after running with me for 12-18 months, you will know everything it took me to learn in 15 years. From that point on in our communications, we will be more like very good friends and less like student/teacher.
Bottom line is that you are right—no one in the industry provides the value I am providing for as low of an investment as I am offering. No one! Mark my words, you will not find this value with anyone else!The others who have sold 150,000 books or more are on planes every day. Not me. I only want to speak 4-5 times per month, not 18-20. As a result, that frees up my time to spend with my family, to pursue my passions, and most importantly for you, it frees up my time to help you achieve your goals.
Your biggest excitement will be when you hear your doorbell ring and see that it is your UPS guy dropping off the first 100 copies of your book. At times like these, my clients do back-flips, experience the realization of a life-long goal come true, and now find themselves in a position to take charge of their own careers, break their dependence on their day jobs, and finally, be in a position to become the captains of their own ships, creating their own destinies out of choice, not out of chance.
I want to help you do the same. Let me serve as your coach, your mentor, your accountability partner. If I can do it, so can you! Your self-doubt and limiting beliefs are normal. I, too, had questions about my ability and my talent looming over me until one day I was fed up and realized that: If it is to be, it is up to me! I challenge you to invest in yourself, and invest in your future. Call, email, or text me today and schedule your complimentary consultation. If you are ready to begin, click on the “Buy Now” options above, complete your order, and let's begin today! I am very confident that you will be pleased and benefit from the results.
In conclusion, I want to ask you four questions:
1. If not you, then who?(You are uniquely qualified to write and publish a book.)
2. If not this, then what?(I don't know of another product or service you can create that will net you a 5X return on your investment.)
3. If not now, then when?(Tomorrow's are not promised and never have been. Now is the time to seize your destiny!)
4. If not here, then where?(Everything in your life has brought you to this moment and time for a reason! Wherever you are currently at in life is the place you need to be to share your gifts with the world to make it a better place. There are only two things we can leave behind on earth when we pass. One is our children and the other is our art.)
Allow me to help you birth your masterpiece for your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren so they may benefit from it for many years to come. Let me help you leave your legacy and make the world a better place because you have lived (and shared your knowledge, wisdom, and experience in the form of the written word.)
P.S. Just to put your mind at ease, I am so confident in my experiences, my knowledge, and my intellectual property, that I am also offering you a limited 30-daymoney back guarantee. Why I am doing this? I want to take the risk out your decision and help you get started on your path to publishing your book today. Therefore, complete the online purchase of your publishing package above and then call 206-310-1200 or email me at Patrick@PatrickSnow.com to begin.
P.P.S. For more information and to learn from the mouths of my actual clients, I encourage you to scroll down where you will find more than 50 testimonials from real life clients, people just like you who have invested in my system and published their books using me as their coach and mentor.

Most Recent Interview on Publishing & Speaking:
"After investing in Patrick Snow's coaching system I published my book in 57 days. Since writing Growing the Leader Within You, our organization has received more than $100 million in real estate donations. Patrick taught me to use my book to promote our organization which resulted in securing and solidifying new donors. It has been an humbling experience and will give me the ability to create hospitals, schools, hospices and feeding centers for children around the world. All of this because Patrick taught me how to put my heart into ink and paper. Patrick's system has been the best investment of our lives!"
Dr. Gayla Holley (Houston, TX)
Philanthropist, Speaker, Author and Founder of Moms Against Hunger
"I've been coached by Hall of Fame coaches (Lenny Wilkens, Jerry Sloan and Pat Riley) throughout my NBA career and I'd rank Patrick Snow right up there with the Hall of Famers! Patrick has the passion, 'fire in the belly' and integrity to not only make himself better, but to help all of his clients 'be the best they can be'. I often mentioned to Patrick... 'You draw up the play and I'll run the ball... that will equal success for both of us'! I’ve loved working with Patrick Snow and look forward to many, many years of success for our team."
James Donaldson (Seattle, WA)
Speaker, Author & Business Coach
"In every industry there is a learning curve. Knowing what I know now I am so happy that engaged Patrick Snow in mentoring me in my first book effort. Without him, my attempt would have ended in disaster!"
Wanek Stein (Boise, ID)
Author of The Swiss Perspective
"Patrick Snow is an awesome, world-class coach with an incredibly generous spirit. He not only gave me a blueprint with great resources to get my book done he shared a brilliant, creative strategy enabling me to get the financial resources I needed to get it published. Without Patrick my dream would never have become a reality. Patrick's passion, experience, wisdom and commitment to his client's success are unparalleled. I highly recommend you allow Patrick to guide you through your book writing, publishing and marketing journey – it will be the best gift you've ever given yourself!"
"Patrick is a fantastic publishing coach. His motivation and inspiration supported me in transitioning from a dream to reality. His resources, knowledge and expertise are priceless! One of the best investments I have made."
Jeff Bow (Kailua-Kona, HI)
Speaker, Author & Business Coach
"I came to know Patrick Snow by way of his book The Affluent Entrepreneur. Little did I know that day when I purchased his book at
Barnes and Noble in that moment was gonna change my life forever! As a result of reading his book I decided to hire Patrick as my publishing coach to help me write my first book. It was truly his book, his support and expertise that has ultimately changed my life forever. My hats off to Patrick Snow as he has made this process so easy!"
Sandi Berger (Chicago, IL)
Certified Fitness Trainer and Lifestyle Coach
"I am so glad that I found Patrick and his book coaching program! I thought writing my book would the hard part. When I began my project, I hadn't given much thought to how to publish. Once I started researching self publishing I quickly realized that there are so many options, most of them bad. You can sign up with one company who will do everything for you but they all have drawbacks. These range from unfavorable royalty deals, to who has the rights to your book, to printing mark ups, to control over the timing and quality of cover design and layout, etc. Patrick guided me through the minefield and steered me to a network of companies and independent contractors that had a proven track record with his clients. Also, his encouragement and positive energy was genuine and truly appreciated. At the end of the day, my book turned out better than I ever expected. I pay zero royalties. I own all of the files. I can change printers or distributors anytime I want and I don't think there is any route I could have chosen that would have enabled me to produce my book at a lower cost with the same quality. If you are serious about writing and publishing a book, hire Patrick Snow as your coach. It will be the single best decision you can make."
Jeremy Kisner (Las Vegas, NV)
Speaker, Author & Business Coach
"When I hired Patrick as my speaking coach, the first thing he asked me was, "Do you have a book?" After saying no – I am not a writer, I am a speaker – he said that every good speaker has a good book. I will show you how. And he did. And how."
Linda Pond (Ottawa, Ontario Canada)
Author, Speaker, Entrepreneur
"Patrick Snow is a true players coach. To be a success on the field you need moves in the air and moves on the ground. Patrick coaches from real experiences that add value every step of the way. Writing a book is a creative process that takes creative juices and discipline. But once it is written it takes tactics and strategy. Don’t write a book then end up sitting on the bench. Talk to this coach if you want to be a winner."
DJ Kelley (St. Petersburg, FL)
Author, Speaker, Coach, Entrepreneur
"Patrick's service is great. I am so pleased with how everything turned out. Patrick was with me every step of the way, with encouragement, steps to take and information about each part of the process. Thanks to his coaching, The Guardians is now a reality. Some thing I had only dreamed about. I recommend his coaching services to anyone who wants to publish their book. "
Tara Casalino (Clear Spring, MD)
"Patrick is an energetic and focused publishing coach. His motivation and direction will rub off on you. His resources, knowledge and expertise will save you time and frustration. By far the biggest benefit is getting your idea out of your head into a published work. If you want to write and publish a book, hire Patrick and it will become your destiny."
Marv White (Hartford, CT)
Speaker, Author & Business Coach
"I thought I knew everything I needed to know about publishing my own book. At least I did until, by a stroke of sheer luck, I was introduced to Patrick, just a week before my book was scheduled to go to press. Thank heavens I called Patrick! I am convinced that Patrick's suggestions will prove to be the difference between moderate success of my book and overwhelming success of my book. I wish I had talked with Patrick at the beginning of the process because I am thrilled to be working with him now."
Laura Wells McKnight
Author, entrepreneur and philanthropist
"Patrick has been the most influential and important person that I met throughout the book writing process. His insight and knowledge of the publishing business is invaluable. Anyone wanting to change their lives or the lives of others needs to work with Patrick and follow his counsel. His motivation is contagious and it will keep you focused on accomplishing all the goals of your life."
Kristopher L. Walton (Idaho Falls, ID)
Author of: Navigating Your Mind: Achieving a Life of Peace, Joy and Happiness
"I have tried to write for many years and finally finished a book that was a delight to write
but had no idea of what or where to go next. Without Patrick it may have never
happened. Patrick Snows approach to publishing is how I realized a dream in a just a few months.
His coaching system helped me publish a world class book in under 70 days! A lot of hard
work and dedication on my part and his devotion to see me succeed was the formula.
He has inspired me to write another book and to complete a book I have been writing for
15 years! His refreshing attitude and positive approach is the key to success. Follow
your dreams and Patrick's leadership advice and you too will be a published author and

Jodi Hudak (Bartlett, IL)
Author, Transformational Career Coach, and Entrepreneur
"Patrick Snow was a pleasure to work with. His expertise and years of experience helped me publish my book in a very efficient manner. It was worth every dollar to hire him as my book publishing coach, and I am confident it would have been more expensive and taken twice as much time had I not hired him. Having access to his team of trusted professionals including editors, proofreaders, graphic artists, publishers & distribution experts was invaluable. I wouldn't have known who to call or where to start to find folks of this caliber without his guidance"
Jason R. Parker
author of Thriving in Retirement, president of Parker Financial LLC & host of radio show Sound Retirement Radio.
"About four years ago I was privileged to see Patrick Snow speak at Sacramento State University. Seeing him in action inspired me both as a speaker and writer. Within a week or so I retained his services as both a publishing and speaking coach. He has been a huge part of my success and continues supporting me in my pursuit of other publishing and speaking endeavors. I greatly admire Patrick's consistent professionalism. Securing his coaching services has been one of the most beneficial investments I have ever made. Without a doubt the return I have had on this investment has far exceeded my expectations!"
Tina Marie (Kings Beach, CA)
Author, Speaker, Holistic Health-care Advocate
"When I first called Patrick, I had no idea how to write and publish a book. But, with Patrick's coaching, I had my first book in my hands 12 weeks after I hired him. We steadfastly followed the mantra, "version one is better than version none". Then, I published version two a year later. It won 8 book awards, including "Best Business Book of 2010." Patrick's coaching made it possible!"
"The road to publishing a book is strewn with rejected manuscripts, dead dreams and exhausted authors. Want a short cut that avoids that scenario?

Mary Flinn (Greensboro, NC)
"In November, I stumbled upon a Patrick Snow presentation on publishing your own book. The following March I was holding a copy of our book in my hands. Without Patrick's wisdom, experience, connections, motivation and desire to coach us through the process every step of the way, I would be empty handed today. He provided me with all the necessary resources to take a dream and make it a reality. My kids, family, friends and the rest of the world now have in their possession a book that will stand the test of time. I cannot stress enough my gratitude for Patrick Snow's services on publishing one's work. He is in a class all his own."
Randall Broad (Kirkland, WA)

Ani Kaspar (Puerto Rico)
Author, Speaker, Coach, Entrepreneur
"The pitfalls of writing, publishing and promoting a book are too numerous to navigate alone. Furthermore, the risks within those pitfalls are too significant to be left in the hands of someone you cannot trust. Patrick Snow is not only someone you can trust, but he is someone who knows the business inside and out and has his clients’ best interest at the top of his list."
Kevin Hocker (St Louis, MO)
Author, Speaker, Coach, Entrepreneur

Jack Fecker (Carnation, WA)
Author, Speaker, Coach, Entrepreneur
"Patrick Snow's coaching made my book possible. I was 75% done with the writing, but lacked the motivation and resources to convert my concept into a physical product. Then I met Patrick. Patrick’s enthusiasm for my project sparked me back into action. His book publishing knowledge and assistance were paramount in getting me through writing, into editing, through publishing, designing, formatting, printing, marketing and numerous other steps that would have taken me years to get through on my own. From hiring Patrick to releasing my book at a huge conference in San Francisco was less than three months. Hiring Patrick was the single best investment I made in my future."
"Patrick demonstrates a unique coaching style. I started speaking about my book before it was finished. When I booked my first speaking engagement Patrick came-up with a game plan to pre-sell the book in advance, which worked out perfectly. His accountability partnership during the writing process enabled me to finish my book in nine months. Patrick is simply the best in the book publishing industry."
"Without Patrick's coaching, expertise and accountability I never would have written the quality book that I have today. He is worth every penny you invest in him."
Kate Raidt (Austin, TX)
Author, Speaker, Coach, Entrepreneur

Rick Rodgers (Lancaster, PA)
"Patrick has been so helpful to start me on my way and show me some of the tricks of the trade. He is an upbeat, rosy kind of a guy which is a good balance for my practical bottom line nature. Patrick helped me "CREATE MY OWN DESTINY" which, by the way, is a lot of hard work. Thank you Patrick for all the times you offered a kind word and encouragement."
Mark Cheairs (Denham Springs, LA)
Author, Motivational Speaker
"After several attempts over the past 20 years to write a book and to establish a business to assist families, with Patrick Snow's guidance I have done both within four short months. Patrick not only has key information to make the writing, publishing, and consulting process clear and simple, he is a master of motivation. His sincerity and dedication, his open-hearted support, and his knowledge of the tricks of the trade have made our association enjoyable and so very profitable. Thank you, Patrick! I couldn't have done it without you!"
Patricia Nan Anderson (Seattle, WA)
Author, Motivational Speaker
"Patrick Snow has been a pleasure to work with and has been worth 100 times his weight in finished books.

James Dwight (St. Helena, CA)
Author, Motivational Speaker
"Without Patrick Snow, his step-by -step proven, empowering coaching program, Sexy In Your 60's would still be in a dream stage.
His Publishing Road Map blueprint was instrumental in moving me through the awesome journey and experience of becoming a published author.

He guides his clients while providing access to his master mind group -- experts in their field who provide all the necessary steps to make our dreams a reality.

Joan M. Bunney (Seattle, WA)
Author, Motivational Speaker, Consultant for Social Change

It has been a dream of mine to write a book, and with Patrick's guidance and publishing road map, my dreams have come true. Thank you Patrick."
Mary Pat Faley (Encino, CA)
Author, Professional Speaker, Coach
"When I began my book I knew how to write, but needed guidance to get it published. When I met Patrick and discovered his awesome coaching program, it was immediately clear that I was in good hands. Patrick's program is outstanding not only because of his publishing road map, but because of his caring and consistent support in weekly group calls and private consultations. He doesn't just push us to succeed, he leads by example as a powerful author and life-changing speaker. Equally amazing is the support and camaderie I've enjoyed from fellow author-clients at author roundtables and publishing institutes. It's my pleasure to recommend Patrick to aspiring writers who are serious about being published."
Flora Morris Brown, Ph.D. (Anaheim Hills, CA)
Author, Professional Speaker, Coach

Brett Clay (Bellevue, WA)
Author, Professional Speaker, Coach
"I had no idea what a publishing coach was when I was introduced to Patrick Snow and I still don’t. Patrick did so much more than simply coach me to get published.

Denny Andrews (Bellevue, WA)
Author, Professional Speaker, Coach
"The best advice we could give you, hire Patrick Snow and let his expertise as a best-seller, speaker and entrepreneur guide you in making confident decisions about your book. Prior to that, we were trapped in the internet maze about how to move forward. Patrick Snow coached us smoothly and professionally through every minute detail of our book causing us to finish writing and successfully publish our first book. His coaching, availability and down to earth humor made us feel immediately at ease. Patrick Snow's publishing roadmap and personal attention have been invaluable to us and is taking us further than we ever dreamed we could go."

Thanks to Patrick, my book is now a “Fantasy/Adventure Thriller!” It is great working with Patrick because he is a best seller himself and knows what is best to publish and market a book.

book publishing advice in a short amount of time, we've made a great friend in the process. Meeting Patrick in person was exciting for us because his passion and positive energy is even more apparent live, and we walked away liking him even more. Since working with Patrick, we've not only made major improvements in our approach to our book, but we've gained incredible direction towards our careers as professional speakers, which was an added bonus."
Randy Rosado and Michelle Rosado (Hollywood, FL)
Author, CEO, Speaker, 9/11 Survivor

Dr. Kevin Fleming (Jackson Hole, WY)
Author, Speaker, Executive Coach
"Working with Patrick has been an absolute joy. He is always available, ready to help and makes sure that each phone call is beneficial and valuable. Without his guidance I would not have advanced so quickly in my book publishing project. His expertise and experience makes him a great asset to my team"
"Listening to Patrick was both a breath of fresh air and a cold slap in the face: the former because of his insights and “outside-the-box” thinking; the latter because Patrick forced me to look at my situation as it actually was, not as I wanted it to be. A long-time (and normally quite realistic) entrepreneur myself, Patrick made me see that I had a “soft spot” for my book, and that was stopping me from realizing its potential for generating profit. More than anything else Patrick helped me see where my book fit into an overall plan for success. If you want to write a book for family and friends that’s great; if you want to write a book to make money I recommend you talk to Patrick!"

"As the Founder and CEO of a Hawaii-based airline, I got where I am today by finding the right people to implement my visions and strategies. These people provided me the knowledge I needed to be successful. I believe hiring the right people always make the difference between success and failure. Not knowing how to get a book published, I hired Patrick Snow as my publishing coach. He definitely exceeded my expectations, kept me on track, and became the right person I needed to achieve my goal of becoming a published author. The investment in Patrick's system was one of the best I have ever made. As a result of working directly with Patrick every step along the way, my book is now published and my business continues to soar to new heights!"

"Patrick Snow is many things, among them a PUBLISHING COACH. I had written a book and was trying to decide whether to sell the rights to
some publishing company for 5%, or self-publishing it and keeping both control and more money. Either choice overwhelmed me! Then the Universe connected us, and I was so impressed with Patrick Snow's book and his 21-step publishing road map, with contacts for each step, that I immediately retained his services. Thanks to his knowledge, enthusiasm and continued support, my book will soon be published. It will become my springboard to conduct workshops, provide consulting services, and go on the national speaking circuit. Thank you, Patrick. Your services are well worth the investment!"
Don Burrows (Marysville, WA) (Author of Plan While You Still Can)
"Having just opened the first box of my first shipment of books, I want to take a few minutes and reflect back on the journey I have just completed. Your encouragement and belief in our story was so instrumental to making this day a reality. The roadmap you provided and the doors that you opened for us not only made this mission possible, but actually fun! Without your energy and positive attitude I have doubt we would have made it. Thank you so much!"
Earl C. Johnson (Bainbridge Island, WA) (Author of, Stairwell To Heaven)
"Prior to meeting Patrick Snow, a major tool missing from my speaking business was my book. Therefore, I hired Patrick to guide me through
important steps to the publishing process, which saved me both time and money. As a result of Patrick's publishing expertise, I have doubled my speaking fees and my speaking calendar is booked! Patrick has the publishing knowledge, experience, and industry contacts to help you realize your dreams. His publishing coaching service is priceless!"
TJ Hoisington (Port Orchard, WA) (Professional Speaker and bestselling author of, If You THINK You CAN!)
"Patrick Snow is as refreshing as his name. I've always wanted to write a book but just didn't know how to get started. After meeting Patrick I realized that this was just an excuse. His enthusiasm, incredible work ethic, and his wonderful connections in the publishing industry made this process and investment fun and easy. I think the most powerful thing I can say about what Patrick has to offer, is that I no longer dream about becoming a published author, because I am one now after hiring Patrick as my Production Coordinator!"
Larry Olsen (Phoenix, AZ) (Published Author, Professional Speaker)
"Patrick Snow's publishing coaching has been extremely valuable to me! What once seemed impossible for me in becoming a published author, has become a reality as a result of hiring Mr. Snow to be my "Production Coordinator." He took me by the hand from day one, walked me through the entire publishing maze, and then proudly delivered me my published book, all in less than one year! He has even gone above and beyond the call of duty by helping me market my book now that it is published. Without question, hiring Patrick Snow has been the BEST investment that I have ever made! His services have catapulted my business to the next level.
"Patrick Snow takes the guesswork out of getting a book published.
There are so many decisions to make and he knows the correct route.
I don't know where I would be if I had not taken advantage of his services.
Believe me, he knows his stuff."
