About Empowering Publishing

Empowering Publishing was born because 5 time Best selling author Slavica Bogdanov realized just how much a book can transform someone’s sale”s trajectory as well as the impact on someone’s credibility.

Empowering Publishing helps people write and publish their business book or novel.

Because of Slavica’s Film Production Company Empowering Entertainment, we also help screenwriters and novelist get their foot in the door of movie making and help most established enterprises produce full feature branded content.

The main difference is that we can either coach you to help you write your book on your own or have one of our experts writers write it for you.

In the $15k option (which we call Guided Author), you’ll use our full process, but you will do the writing and typing yourself (with our guidance and support the entire way, described here). This option begins with a two day workshop, and then usually requires you to spend about an hour of writing a day for 6+ months.

In the $36k option (which we call Empowering Publishing Professional), all you have to do is get on the phone, and talk about what you already know. We handle all the typing and writing for you, but the words and ideas and voice are still entirely yours. This option only requires about 1.5 hours on the phone per week.

If you want to write your book on your own and hire us as coaches, Then you need to ask yourself:

  1. Do you like sitting down and writing? Do you like typing, and having your hands on the keyboard?
  2. Do you have enough time to write this yourself?

If you do, our coaches will guide you through the process, edit your work and serve as accountability partners.

If you write your work, we will be there every step of the way. We intend for you to finish your work within 6 months but it might take longer depending on your own speed and involvement.

If you prefer us to do the work for you. We intend to have the work finished within 8 months.

We have options for every budgets.

It is best to get in touch with us to see what option best fits your needs.

Although we desire helping as people as possible through the painful process of writing and publishing, no everyone will be ready to take that step with us.

And that’s OK. We are committed to offer excellence and want to work with people who are committed as well in having their work stand out We work with individuals who understand the power of having a published book or a film and want to get that level of authority and prestige. They want a fully custom program that includes all marketing and promotion.

There are many differences but here are a few that stand out from the rest:

1- We offer up to 90% of the rights to the authors. Most traditional publishers offer less than 5%

2- We do not require you to give us exclusive rights as other publishers. You can publish with other companies as well and keep the rights to your work.

3- Most traditional publishers ask for the authors to be already known and have a following in order to accept to publish them. We build the following of our authors.

4- Most traditional publishers have old fashioned marketing strategies and campaigns where we have a proprietary blend of marketing strategies to help boost author’s notoriety.

5- We have a full scale marketing and reputation management agency incorporated into our Publishing company

6- We offer expert ghostwriting services and traditional publisher do not.

7- We also integrate with a film production company which means we can bring your projects to video and film.

8- We have the ability to multiply your streams of income by showing you how you can create products and even a new brand starting with your published book.

9- We will be using new forms of media for published works that will set you apart in the publishing industry.

Yes, basically if you do not want to invest in your future and see how having a book will affect positively your notoriety, reputation and credibility, then you are probably not a good fit.

We offer services in French, Italian, Serbian and Spanish at the moment. We will be able to offer services in Mandarin soon.

Empowering Publishing Publishing Questions

Yes. You own the copyright and all print and reproduction rights. You can do anything you want with your book.

You will receive from 75% to 90% of the proceeds of the sale of your book.

Empowering Publishing

You own 75-90% of the royalties for your book. Same with your feature film, screenplay or novel.

For eBooks, Amazon takes 30% of your royalties and you take the other 75% to 90% of the 70%.

We also offer you a very competitive printing rate if you want to get more books on your own.

Yes and no. This is a complicated answer, again because the publishing business is so weird.

Yes, we make your book available for order and sale in bookstores and retail outlets. All our books are put into the Ingram database, and can be ordered in every bookstore in the country.

No, we do not automatically put your book in bookstores. This is because bookstores carry very few books, reserving their limited space for established authors or books from publishers who are paying for shelf space.

You generally need to sell at least 25,000 copies before bookstores become interested in carrying your book. That’s the bad news. The good news is that being in bookstores doesn’t really matter anymore. A book sitting on a shelf doesn’t sell in most cases. In terms of buyer behavior, most people who shop at Barnes & Noble also shop on Amazon, so if they don’t see a book at Barnes & Noble, they’ll just go to Amazon. In other words, lack of bookstore distribution in and of itself doesn’t necessarily lose you very many sales.

The reality is, for almost all authors, being in a bookstore is purely about ego, and not about actual ROI. We don’t deny that going into a bookstore and seeing your book on the shelf is nice, but having a book in a bookstore does almost nothing in terms of sales or awareness. It is only a status object.

Your book cover and manuscript interior layout will be designed by world class designers, but you have full creative control.

We might run tests to see which covers has more potential in bringing more sales for the book.
