Do you have a book inside you?

Many do, but not everyone is successful in reaching their publishing goals. Often, manuscripts are put on back burners or languish on shelves indefinitely. Perhaps you have an idea for a book but don’t know where to start. With a bit of inspiration and a roadmap, you can realize your dream of becoming a published author. We’re here to help you navigate the publishing process, avoid the many pitfalls, and increase your chances for success.

Without the careful and multi-faceted guidance of Gail and the To Press & Beyond team, I don’t know how my book would have ever seen the light of day . . . Their deep knowledge of the self-publishing book industry and its players made a big difference to the quality of my book, my experience of getting it to market and the positive reaction of my readers. I highly recommend them.

We were thrilled with Gail as our publicist for the release of The Science of Serial Killers. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and personal touch made us feel confident and well taken care of! Gail listened to our goals and was thorough when gathering information for marketing our book. We definitely recommend her!

— Meg Hafdahl and Kelly Florence, authors of The Science of Stephen King.
