Our Dedicated "Relationship Publishing™":
Brown Books focuses on meeting
your individual goals by developing a complete publishing plan
- Concept Building and Writing—Writing
a book begins with an idea. If your idea is clean, strong, and
well formed, then you are ready to begin writing. Most of the
time though, starting the writing process isn't that easy. Concept
building and writing helps you consider various ideas, choose
the concept that is most marketable, and develop it into a brief
or detailed outline that will help you through the writing of
your manuscript. Brown Books Publishing Group's concept building
can help you thoughtfully explore ways of
preparation for writing and developing your ideas efficiently,
productively, and with an eye towards what will be most successful
in the marketplace.

- Extreme Book Makeovers—Did
you know that the average person only spends about six seconds
looking at the front of a book, and fifteen seconds looking at
the back? That's a little over twenty seconds to make an impression
on a potential reader . . . how are you using that time?
Do you have a catchy title that also explains the book's contents?
Is the cover attractive and engaging? On the back cover, is there
a brief synopsis with endorsements and bullet points, or is there
simply a picture of the author, or worse yet, endless copy that
drones on and on?
Many self-published authors have come to us for help when their
book is not selling as well as they had hoped or planned. That “cutesy” title
or less-than-professionally-designed cover telegraphs a subliminal
message that the content is equally as unimpressive.
Brown Books has created an entire division dedicated to “fixing” books
for previously self-published authors. We know all of the secrets
of the trade. Look at the following examples and you'll find that
a picture really is worth a thousand words. View

- Web Site Design and Search Engine Optimization—In
today's competitive marketplace, it's not enough to have just
a “brochure” online and expect the audience to find your potential
best seller. Brown Books Publishing Group's team of Web site
designers, graphic artists, and programmers can help you design,
search engine optimize, and submit your web site to search engines
and online directories; help with search engine advertising;
promote your book with online news groups/usenet groups/chat
groups; arrange for online author interviews, and much more.
let your book passively sit in a bookstore waiting for passersby
to be captured by an attractive book cover. Today, best-selling
authors are actively marketing to their targeted audience by
using speaking engagements, conventions, seminars and associations,
Internet marketing, e-mail campaigns, webinars, television endorsements,
and much more. At Brown Books Publishing Group, we aggressively
match your needs with your target market.
- Public Relations—Let
Brown Books Publishing Group's experienced public relations team
prepare your press kits and press releases, contact numerous
reviewers, distributors, book chains, TV and radio producers,
and print and newspapers columnists to secure interviews, guest
appearances, luncheons, seminars, and book signings to help successfully
promote your book.
the '90s, it became more and more difficult for single-title authors
to reach the bookstore trade. Then, Ingram Book
Group, the nation's largest book wholesaler, slammed their doors
shut to authors with fewer than ten titles, an action that a
lot of people perceived to be a gentle way of saying that Ingrams
prefers to work with publishers only. This meant that if you
retained the rights to your book, you could expect a great challenge
in getting into nationwide bookstores.
Today, Barnes & Noble, Borders, B. Dalton, Walden's, and
other retailers will order books from the major distributors
and wholesalers and a few other smaller companies, but not from
individual authors. We felt this was unfair. It created an obstacle
that was difficult to overcome in the path of even the most motivated
and determined author. So Milli Brown began a long courtship
with Ingram, and today, Brown Books authors are accepted by Ingram
on our recommendation. Ingram is extremely impressed by the quality
of our books and the level of our authors' education in the publishing
world, especially their level of sales and marketing expertise.
And finally, after seeing the number of books Brown Books's authors
sell (what every distribution company looks for), it makes good
We are proud to report that this partnership has greatly benefited
our authors. If part of your marketing plan includes a presence
in nationwide bookstores, then becoming a BB author will greatly
increase your chances of getting there. Ask
us for details.
- Order Fulfillment & Warehousing—After
considering many fulfillment companies nationwide, Brown Books
carefully reviewed and evaluated each company for pricing, customer
service, location, and integrity. Our goal was to find a warehouse
that could provide fair prices, timely turnaround times on orders,
detailed monthly reports, and a proximity that would facilitate
face-to-face meetings. Finally, Brown Books felt confident enough
to sign with a Dallas-based fulfillment house that meets all
the above criteria.
Our authors no longer need to store their books in garages, extra
bedrooms, closets, or storage facilities. They no longer need
to box up, address, and send each order that comes in. They no
longer need to worry about credit card orders. They no longer
need to keep track of their inventory, worrying that they will
run out of books at a critical moment.
Feel free to ask us about how fulfillment works and the fees
involved. Let us help take the stress of fulfilling orders off
Brown Books Publishing Group builds long-term successful relationships
while our authors retain their rights and keep all the profits.
At Brown Books Publishing Group, clients have complete control
over their publications without having to resort to self-publishing.
