Let’s Talk About Publishing YOUR Book!

Who Are We?
Momosa Publishing LLC is a custom publisher. We are the bridge between:

Traditional publishing: Where they pay you and do a lot of the work, but they hijack control of your book!

Self-publishing: Where you maintain control over your book, but you pay all of the money, and you do all of the work!

Custom publishing is a quicker route to publishing than traditional publishing, and it’s a less expensive route than self-publishing.

Why Should You Publish a Book?

  • As a published author, you’re automatically a recognized authority.
  • Your byline on a book is your ticket to television, magazine, and radio interviews.
  • Spokesperson, media, and speaking opportunities increase.
  • Offering your books for sale after seminars and speeches allows you to cash in on “back of the room” sales.
  • Offering your wisdom, expertise, and experience in a book benefits thousands of people—many of whom will never have the chance to meet you personally.

Books have impact:

  • Reading on paper is slower and deeper than on screen; paper readers remember more.
  • Reading a book stimulates emotions and desires.
  • Reading a printed book requires more focused attention than reading on screen—fewer distractions.
  • A book drives sensory involvement, which contributes to impact on readers.
  • Books are preferred by the majority of people—even millennials.
  • Your book will help you spread your message far and wide.
  • Your book is your legacy.

Why Should You Publish with Us?

  • We’re an efficient, effective, excellent team of highly trained editorial, design, and marketing professionals.
  • We have a proven track record of strictly adhering to budgets and schedules.
  • Our forte is working with expert authors and visionary brands.

Who owns the copyright?
You do.

Do you publish all books that come to you?
No, we are very selective, working only on books we feel have a good chance of success. 

Will my book be sold in all stores?
Your book will be available to order in all stores that sell books. We post your eBook to Amazon for Kindle and your audiobook to Amazon for ACX. Yes, there are other platforms, but we haven’t found them to be sales beneficial. 

How many books will I sell?
Because they aren’t properly promoted, 90 percent of books published in the United States sell fewer than 100 copies. We will work with you to create your best book; we will create Momosa Publishing Tools for your book to help you sell your book; and we will provide you with valuable connections to one of our Launch Partners, who will help you to accelerate your sales. 

How much money will I make?
It depends upon where the books are sold:

  • If you sell a book personally to a friend or at an event, you can charge the cover price.
  • If a book sells to a store, library, or website, you are paid a percentage of the cover price.

How do I get paid?
We help you to set up accounts with Amazon or Ingram Spark to sell your print, eBook, and audiobook. Amazon or Ingram Spark sends your payments directly to your bank. Your book will also be also available to order at stores nationwide.

How do you promote the book?
No matter whether you publish with us, a traditional publisher, or self-publish, promotion is the responsibility of the author. We create Momosa Publishing Tools for you to use. We also connect you with our Launch Partners, whom you can hire to help you to accelerate your sales, usually a few months before and/or a few months after your book releases.

Momosa Promotion Tools
Our Momosa Promotion Tools are included in your publishing package and include many deliverables, which are detailed below. These tools are tailored specifically for your book/brand. These tools are created in the weeks leading up to your book’s release. 

  • Momosa Publishing Catalog: Full-page listing in our twice-yearly Momosa Publishing Catalog for the first year after publication, partial-page listing in our Momosa Publishing Catalog each year after
  • What’s New Message: We create the message about your book’s launch and other news, and we send it to our editorial, design, and marketing team, sales team, and select media

A $1200 PR launch campaign package would include:

  • Write press release and media pitches

  • Pitch writers, editors, reporters, producers, and bloggers in appropriate field 
  • Offer suggestions for additional social media tactics, blogger outreach campaigns, and creative partnerships

Marketing is all about connections. Connecting the right message with your target audience, connecting your solution with their pain point, and connecting your business goals with the desired results.

Here at Lindsey Hartz Creative we’re pros at making connections (fun fact: our favorite hobby is Dot-to-Dot). We’ll help you define who your most lucrative target audience is, develop messaging that speaks to them directly, position your product or service as THE can’t-live-without solution, and make it easy for them to engage and buy.

Once we’re able to dig in a little deeper, we’ll create a customized plan of attack that makes sense for your audience, your industry, and your goals. It could be a mix of product development, market research, branding, and content marketing.

Connections are also about relationships. And our relationship with our clients is both a priority and a point of pride.

So, let’s start making connections, and watch your business grow.
