The Third Installment – September 1st, 2020

Publishing moves a little slower in August, as most of the industry leaves Manhattan and heads for the Hamptons, or some other spot to relax and recharge. So, we didn’t have a lot of new wins, although there are many new clients moving into the Pipeline.

Deals are being made and chapters are being written every week. We do have one major success to share:

Gaurav Swarup Bhatnagar and Mark Minukas, Founder and Managing Partner of Co-Creation Partners, a management consulting firm based in Washington, DC, signed with a literary agent we introduced them to.


The Second Installment – August 1st, 2020

Welcome to the second installment of our monthly blogpost, The Pipeline! In this blog series, we share about our clients, what they have been up to, recent publishing wins we helped them achieve, and exciting new books to buy and read. Follow it closely to get these exclusive sneak peaks into our projects!

This month, we will be sharing a lot of exciting news with anonymity, as many of our clients are in transitional stages.  

Pending Agent Agreement:

We have one client who is about to sign with a literary agent we connected them to after we assisted in preparing their book proposal.

We’ve recently signed on three new clients to help with their book proposals, and they are absolutely killing it. These projects, although early in the developmental stage, will be world-changing and we can’t wait to work with them and bring these projects across the “finish line.”

One private book writing coaching client has signed up for our Manuscript to Marketplace (M2M) Program, since they have finished their manuscript and are moving into the production phase.

Book Writing:

This one doesn’t need to be anonymous! Last month, we told you about our client, Christine Hronec, the biochemist-turned-fitness-extraordinaire, who had signed with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Christine has officially engaged us, and we are now in the process of coaching her to write book on Macro Types for weight loss. Get ready, this info is going to rock your world!  

With 103k followers on Instagram and over 20 million views on her YouTube channel, Christine has established herself as a leader in women’s health. She has been featured in ForbesMuscle and Fitness HERSMuscle and StrengthFlex magazine, and has appeared on Extra TV, Fox News, and CBS.

Stay tuned we have more clients in the pipeline and more deals being finalized every week.


The First Installment – July 1st, 2020

Welcome to our first installment of this monthly update of what our clients are up to, recent publishing wins we helped them achieve, and exciting new books to buy and read. Follow our blog post to see our current clients’ progress through “The Pipeline.”

New Books:

Dr. Steven Quay, MD, PhD released his new book COVID-19 Survival Manual: A Physician’s Guide to Keep You and Your Family Healthy during the Pandemic and Beyond. The COVID-19 Survival Manual is chock-full of lifesaving tips you can’t find anywhere else to help you and your family stay healthy while sheltering-in-place, as well as how to (safely) get back to life in the coming weeks and months.

            Dr. Quay received his M.D., M.A. and Ph.D. from The University of Michigan, was a postdoctoral fellow at MIT with Nobel Laureate H. Gobind Khorana, a resident at the Harvard-Massachusetts General Hospital, and was on the faculty of Stanford University School of Medicine for almost a decade. He is the founder, Chairman, and CEO of Seattle-based Atossa Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapeutics and delivery methods for breast cancer and COVID-19.

Dr. William Li’s New York Times bestseller, Eat to Beat Disease: The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself, is coming out in paperback soon, and I’ve been helping him with some exciting updates that we will announce as the publication date nears.

Dr. Li leads the Angiogenesis Foundation. His TED Talk, “Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?” has more than 11 million views. He has been an author of over 100 scientific publications and has served on the faculties of Harvard Medical School, Tufts University, and Dartmouth Medical School.

Book Proposals that Sold:

Christine Hronec signed with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), and we will soon begin coaching her to write her upcoming book on Macro Types. Christine is a biochemical engineer-turned-nutrition and fitness expert, and her programs have helped more than 40,000 clients lose weight and change their body composition.

This is a big win, as HMH is the same publisher that put out the mega-bestseller, The Whole 30.

Christine has over 20 million views on her YouTube channel. She has been featured in Forbes, Muscle and Fitness HERS, Muscle and Strength, Flex magazine, and has appeared on Extra TV, Fox News, and CBS. She earned her bachelor’s degree and a Master of Science in chemical and biological engineering from Drexel University and has received awards from the American Chemical Society and was published in the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

Eric Strafel signed a book deal with McGraw Hill, and is now getting our help to write his upcoming book, Frontline CEO.  Eric is Vice President of Strategy for Boeing Global Services. He also is the founder of SUMMi7, which is an organization that helps companies grow profits and scale their business while leveraging their strengths and maintaining their values. He holds an MBA from Carnegie Mellon University.

Nicole Stott signed with Seal Press (a division of Hachette) and is now working with us to write her book, Her book. Back to Earth, will discuss how we can bring the example of peaceful cooperation among nations on the ISS “back to Earth” to help us solve today’s most pressing problems. She describes her process working on the book in a Client Journey interview she did for us, which you can find here.

Nicole is a retired NASA astronaut who has participated in two spaceflights on the Space Shuttle and spent a cumulative 104 days living and working in space on the International Space Station (ISS).

Stand by, as we’ve got more proposals in the pipeline, more clients getting signed by agents, more deals in the works, and more books hitting the shelves in months to come.
