Your Life Your Story Your Success
Do you have a desire to write, but perhaps you find yourself frustrated by an inability to develop or organize your writing? Or, maybe you’re getting bogged down in the process. Your writing coach will help you develop a clear and compelling premise, determine a tone, style, and voice based on your intended audience. No matter the genre, whether fiction or nonfiction, your coach can help you produce a coherent and captivating narrative..
A lot of self-published authors skip the editing process, thinking it will save them money. In reality, they are making themselves an easy target for negative reviews and criticisms of their book once it is published. Typos, technical errors, misspellings, and poor grammar all suggest the author is an amateur; and can have detrimental effects on your authoring career and your business. Our professional proofreaders and editors will guide you through the revision process, offering suggestions to enhance clarity, style, syntax and sentence structure; ultimately making you a better writer. They will focus on helping you communicate your ideas clearly and concisely to the audience.
We specialize in those writers who have chosen the self-publishing route. There are many viable reasons to choose self-publishing; such as, you can maintain creative control, work under your own timeline, keep the rights to your work, earn higher royalties, and getting your book to market faster and with less stress and hassle.
Self-publishing can be a quick and efficient solution for many writers, however the process can also be overwhelming. It involves proof-reading, editing, cover design, interior layout, formatting, ISBN numbers, copy-writing, marketing, and book promotion, to name a few. Unfortunately, without someone guiding them through the process many self-published authors end up producing a book that is at best error-filled, and at worst incoherent. If a reader is counting your typos and misspellings, then the likelihood of recommending you or buying your next book is next to zero.
At Skinny Brown Dog Media we want you to succeed. Therefore, we offer an affordable package to help you navigate the self-publishing process and produce the best version of your book. We have bundled the most requested services into a Self-Publish Support Package while being mindful that many authors are on a budget.
Our team of ghostwriters, editors, and line-readers can help turn your idea into a finished manuscript, quickly and affordably. We use a collaborative process so you will be included in the crafting of your story. When it’s complete, you can choose how to work with our publishing division. In the end, it will be your story in your voice in your book.
This service has helped many non-native English speaking writers and speakers craft a story that connects with audiences worldwide.
You might be surprised at how many famous authors have used Ghostwriters and Co-Creators to craft their stories.
The idea for Skinny Brown Dog Media was born in 2015. After writing his first novel in 2014, Timothy discovered that the hardest part of being an author was not the creative process, but the publishing process. Going the traditional publishing route required months of submitting loglines, synopsizes, partial chapters and personal biographies before finding a literary agent. Then there was another 6-8 months to find a publisher interested in the book. Once a publisher was found, there were confusing legal contracts followed by re-writes and the creative changes that the publisher insisted be made. The entire publishing process was cold and demeaning. As a new author, Timothy faced barrier after barrier, jumped through one hoop after another, only to find that it would take two years or more before the book would hit the market. In the end, he would have to sign away most of his rights, surrender creative control to business people, and give up most of the royalties to gate-keepers. There had to be a better way!
Meanwhile, Eric was having a much different publishing experience. As a prominent Success Coach and the host of the popular web-series “Author Talk”, he was encountering one coaching client after another with self-publishing horror stories. They reported experiences with many fly-by-night “self-publishing experts” who charged exorbitant prices, provided poor customer service, and offered low quality editing and proof-reading. Many paying thousands of dollars only to end up with a second-rate book, riddled with errors and not worthy of their story.
As they considered their own negative personal experiences and the complaints from Eric’s self-published clients, it was clear there was a need for a different type of self-publishing service provider. With authors like Any Weir (The Martian), Mike Omer (A Killer’s Mind), and E. L. James ( Fifty Shades of Grey) finding success through self-publishing, the writing was on-the-wall — self-publishing is the future. Thus Skinny Brown Dog Media was born.
What makes Skinny Brown Dog Media different, besides our name?
1. Quick publishing process: 8 weeks or fewer (based on your finished manuscript).
2. One project manager for each client: from start to finish.
3. Professional and responsive: no canned emails. We understand the need for clear communication.
4. Competitive prices.
5. You maintain full creative control of your book.
6. Multiple levels of proof-reading and editing to insure your book is error-free, visually attractive, and communicate your message in a concise and easily readable manner.
7. You keep all your well-earned royalties.
Over the past few years, Skinny Brown Dog Media has grown into a small group of writers, editors, line-readers, and coaches who work together to help writers fulfill their dream of making their book come alive and reach the hearts of their fans.
Oh...About the company name,
River is our “Skinny Little Brown Dog” as my son called him the day he chose River at the pet adoption agency. As part of my son’s closing sales pitch, he reminded me, “Everyone needs a place to be loved, even this skinny little brown dog.” River came home with us that day and has become a part of the family and part of our family story.
At Skinny Brown Dog Media, you and your story will be loved and at-home just as much as River.
