Learn from the Publisher!

Do you know what it takes to create a successful book in today’s publishing environment?

This publishing CEO does and he will teach you how in this laser-focused Half-Day Workshop!

Randy Davila is the President of Hierophant Publishing and Hampton Roads Publishing Company, and the author of the  book, Think Like A Publisher: 33 Essential Steps to Write, Promote, and Sell Your Book! 

Between the two publishing houses, he has overseen the publication of books by authors such as Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Neale Donald Walsch, Jack Canfield, don Miguel Ruiz Jr., HeatherAsh Amara, and many, many others.

You might believe that these well-known writers simply wrote a great manuscript and turned it in so that Randy could print and ship them to bookstores around the world.

While it’s true that each of them is a wonderful writer, the fact is that producing a truly great book (one that will be read by a wide audience of truth seekers) requires a lot of focus and guidance so that it can reach the people who need it the most.

If you have experienced big healing and transformation in your life and have always dreamed of writing a book that could help a lot of people, Randy would like to teach you about the process in his upcoming Publish You workshop!
