CONFERENCE CALL SCRIPT
Our Conference Call Script is a pre-written guide with helpful information & Q&As used by our Author Representatives during customer calls.

As an Author Representative, you will save our authors from their worst writing mistakes and help refine their message. To get started on your first author's manuscript, there are a few English and writing tests you must take.

An important skill to master.

CUSTOM BOOK TRAILERS
Book trailers bring your work to life in a way that many authors often dream about. They can also give readers a great impression of professionalism and much like a movie trailer, is designed to visually stimulate. As an Author Representative, you will work closely with the author and a Videographer to produce a Hollywood-style book trailer.
Seeing is believing. Illustrations help children understand what they're reading, and allow new readers to analyze the story. They increase sales and make the author's work more cohesive. As an Author Representative, you'll work closely with the author and the illustrator to create high quality illustrations for children's books, picture books and stories.
Publishing audiobooks allow our authors to be in the minority of print-book authors who produce their book in an audio version. Authors who have an audiobook reach a wider audience and are more easily discovered. Before an author decides to publish an audiobook with us, they generally want to see examples. Attached examples are below.
