Control Your Publishing Experience & Income Earning Potential Without Sacrificing Quality or Credibility!

Traditional Publishers control:

  • What you earn

  • When you earn it

  • When or if your book gets published

  • What cover design you can use

  • What edits you are required to make

  • When you are required to make edits

  • What else you can do to make money with your book

Self-Publishing Allows You Full Control. 
Get in the driver's seat!

We offer everything needed to take control over your publishing experience & income earning potential, including:​

This is Not Vanity Publishing.

Vanity Publishers:

  • Require you to pay the entire cost of producing your book and then may even  charge you royalties on top of it!

  • Require you to buy hundreds or even thousands of copies of your book...and require you to buy from them at a substantial markup from what the printer charges.

  • Make outrageous promises about how they will market your book and make you a best-selling author but don't deliver on those promises.

Path To Publishing:

  • Does not charge you royalties unless we share the costs of publishing (through our hybrid publishing model).

  • Does not require you to buy any copies of your book - we set you up directly with printers & distributors.

  • Makes no promises about where you will rank because we can't promise how much work you'll be willing to do to get where you want to go, but does promise to provide you access to everything you need to achieve your measure of literary and financial literary success.

Any additional comments: Phenomenally amazing! From the very moment I scheduled my literary consulting appointment, I just knew my literary dream had become reality. To be graced with the passionate driven "Literarist" herself (Joylynn M. Ross), was a blessing, and I learned many literary golden nuggets during our consultation. God truly appointed, and anointed the right one! Joylynn, you are blessed and highly favored!
