Navigating the ever-changing publishing industry is daunting for even those who run it, so what’s an aspiring author to do with this moving target?

The Book Hook is a knowledge base. Come with your questions, we’ve got answers. And if we don’t, we know who does. And we’ve got sample book proposals, press releases, queries, punch-lists, and contacts---many, many contacts--from agents to illustrators, you name it. We’ve done all the legwork so you don’t have to.

Consultations are charged by the hour at a minimum of two hours. We are unable to offer these by phone as you may need to bring samples of your work for review which can only be done in person. For more information, email us at:
