Author Ascend™ Coaching

Don't go it alone.

Writing a book is an achievement to be proud of, but turning that book into a success is a journey that requires more than just great writing skills.

You understand the unique challenges that come with promoting your work and building an engaged audience.

So why are you stuck?

The challenge is not that you don't know what to do. You've spent time, energy, and money learning about the newest latest-and-greatest tricks and tips for marketing and promotion.

You've taken courses on advertising, learning the ins and outs of AMS ads and Facebook marketing. You've tried TikTok (BookTok), Instagram, Pinterest, and BookBub.

You know how to write — the reviews you've got are good. Readers love what you've got to say. Your sales aren't even that bad… they're just not great (and they're not growing).

Being stuck (in a lack of book sales) isn't about knowledge.

Lack of sales is not about lack of information.

It's about not having the right plan.

You know there's a way forward — a way to success — because you've seen it. You've watched others succeed, some massively. You've seen their books rocketing to the top of the Amazon charts. 

And you know your books are at least as good as theirs, so… why are they successful, and you're not? 

Do they know something you don't? Do they have a secret weapon? Do they have write better than you? 

No.

But do have a plan. Whether it's one they found accidentally, lucked into it, or it's a plan they've developed and honed over years of testing, experimenting, and failure, they have one. 

Maybe you've had a plan as well. 

But you're here because your plan doesn't work…

Hello!

I'm Nick!

I'm a USA Today Bestselling Author, with over 40 thrillers published to my name. I own and operate Conundrum Publishing, Book Career In A Year, and run the write/repeat workshops and writing intensives. 

In addition, I've built businesses for authors: Author.Email, the only email marketing platform for authors, and RadioWrite.com, the 24/7 writing inspiration radio platform. I'm currently the VP of Author Success with Draft2Digital, focusing on getting authors to the next level. 

My passion is to help authors like you figure out what their plan is — not just the “what,” but the “how” and the “why.” These are the missing pieces, the thing that will skyrocket your book career.

Because it's designed and customized exclusively, solely for you. It's a program tested and proven over the past 12 years, and it's the only coaching program designed to cut through the clutter (and BS!) and get to the results. 

12 weeks to incredible freedom.

I know what it takes to go from 3 sales per day to 300 (and 3,000). I know how to market and advertise your work. And I know what it means to “write to market.” 

But knowing is only half the battle. I also know how to show you how to do the same with your own books. I'm not talking theory and strategy, either (“Figure out how to use Facebook ads, and your books will sell!”). 

I'm talking actual, practical advice. I will literally show you how to set up Facebook and Amazon ads and get them to scale, for your book. I will literally give you the templates for ad copy, image ideas, and structural components to build advertising campaigns. 

I will show you how to create graphics, promotions, social media posts, and more… and I'll show you why you need them, and when. 

This isn't just coaching, where I tell you what to do. I will do all of it with you, one step at a time, explain why we're doing it, and teach you how to do it on your own.  

I know what it takes to launch a career, because I've done it. 

You're looking for a plan that's actionable, practical, and implementable. You don't need to know every option available to you, but the options that make most sense for your books and career.

Let me build that for you — and then coach you through how to implement and follow it.

12 weeks, on your time, for an hour each week. Let me show you the future of your publishing success.

I've worked with and coached new authors, veteran publishers, and writers who are moving over from the traditional world. I've taught classes and courses on marketing and promotion, craft, and publishing. I've built $1M+ CPC campaigns for corporations, churches, and individuals, and I've tracked the data well enough to know they worked.

And I can help you, too.

Your writing career is one solid, actionable plan away.
