Dear author, for over three years now I’ve been pushing the Relentless brand in the streets of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, New Orleans, Chicago and even down in Houston. my team and I have riddled the Internet with details of my history, and even hired three and four publicists to push my story to mainstream America. I’ve stood in the rain and snow, on Time Square, on the streets of Baltimore and Washington DC. I’ve done trains, buses, airports, hotels and beauty salons. There have been numerous book fairs, expos, festivals and family gatherings. In New York alone, for the past 3 years, I’ve made my presence known before more than 250,000 people each day, regardless of their age, nationality, or preference in reading material. I’ve literally “done this to death,” to the point that I have been able to reach the right people in record time. “Record time” merely means, moving enough books to pay the bills, and before that next dreaded 1st over the month series of bills hits your mailbox. But, record time also means that I’ve superseded so many others who have struggled to do what I’ve done in twice the time. Some authors may never reach the heights that I’ve reached, especially now that the marketplace is “flooded” with titles and concepts that are so redundant and so revisited. Are there any original works of literature available???
I know there are. And I’m willing to show you just what I mean. I’ve conquered just about every imaginable goal I’ve had, from the writing to the sales, and now I’ve set another goal. Call this the “second wave” if you will, but I’m now sharing my marketing savvy with you, the next independent author (or book) to BLOW! See, for me it’s easy to brand and market and strategize. For me, it’s easy to focus on my market, to hunt them down, and to give them what they want. How so? Because I’ve spent SO much QUALITY TIME studying this! I studied the writing, the publishing, and the marketing by reading over 1,000 books. There were the important branding books I had to read back and forth, such as “Radical Marketing“, by Sam Hill & Glen Rifkin. I had to eat, chew and swallow books like “The Tipping Point” by Malcolm Gladwell, and “How To Win Customers & Keep Them For Life” by Michael LeBoeuf, Ph.D. And of course, of course, of course, I cannot forget Dr. Dennis Kembro’s Think & Grow Rich (A Black Choice), and David Schwartz’ “The Magic of Thinking Big“. Actually, I’m cheating, because I’ve been reading “Big” for decades. However, there were the dozens of books ABOUT writing, including “Spider, Spin Me A Web, & “Telling Lies For Fun & Profit” both by Lawrence Block. There was “On Writing” by Steve King, and so MANY other books about the craft of storytelling; essentials for anyone who would want to master the craft of “Suspending the reader’s belief systems” and jamming open certain pleasure centers that will keep them reading the books.
And so, since there’s nobody quite like me; someone who was and is as passionate as I have been about publishing, then that makes me blessed and highly favored as it relates to all things-publishing. SHAMELESS! ME! But, it’s a fact. I know it all, from the conception of the idea, to the maturing process of building it into a book, and then the softwares, etc that help to make that initial idea into a great book. Blindfolded, I’ve mastered Photoshop, and so I’ve created those captivating covers. In fact, one such cover I’ve created was SO captivating and important for the author/publisher who came to me, that they used it AGAIN for a SEQUEL! No kidding.
When a publishing company (no matter how big) is not doing “the right thing,” I can see it blindfolded, especially when it comes to urban lit. Especially when it comes to marketing to the appropriate audience. Case & Point: I have a total of 14 book contracts with St. Martin’s Press, a behemoth in the publishing industry. And despite all of their experience and all of their talented employees, they have not been able to accomplish A HALF PERCENT of the publicity and notoriety that I have accomplished on my own. WHY IS THAT? That doesn’t say that anything’s wrong with St. Martin’s Press, respectively. However, what it does say is that I’m champion in my own quest to succeed, more so than any other employee or department of employees.
All of that knowledge and foresight is now for sale (or rent) in my consultations and fee-based services that I provide in the way of Ghostwriting, market strategy and publishing. I am also connected enough in the movie business that I can walk your book or screenplay into certain Hollywood offices for possible acquisition. Did you NOT see the clip I wrote (complete with pics) on my HBO visit with the head of acquisitions??? (check the BLOG! It’s there)
So, You have a book that is already published and hasn’t been selling. It may or may not have a buzz; it may or may not have an audience. Either way, you are not happy with the results. Fortunately, I am ALL about results. And that’s why you, your company, and most importantly, your books need me as an advocate.
For a limited time, I am producing VIDEO SHORTS; features that will profile your book, or publishing effort. And, I’m doing so for EXTREMELY DISCOUNTED prices. In some cases, I even accept books in place of hard money. (Of course, this is a limited time offer, since the time in my life gets tighter and tighter.) However, the offering is on the table. And, as I like to say…
My name is Relentless Aaron. Fly me.
