A word after a word after a word is power.
– Margaret Atwood
I discovered Lynn from a resource inside the publishing world, and from our first call, Lynn has been a star. Her combination of background, skills, relationships, experiences – and personal coaching style – makes her extremely valuable. She came aboard on my publishing journey about six months before the publication date and remains on retainer (15 months after publication). The proof is in the pudding – the book quickly reached #1 in its category (despite being launched about 3 days after the pandemic was formally recognized in March 2020) and continues to sell well and generate public speaking opportunities for me. Highly recommended!

I was referred to Lynn from a two-time best-selling author in the real estate space. I am so glad I did. I would’ve never been able to come up with the ideas she did to sell my book and I’m a salesman myself!
She always had a great attitude, our meetings were fast and effective, and she was always available to me between meetings when I had questions.
She made my book a best seller and it continues to grow as a result of the plan of action she has helped put in place.

Working with Lynn McGinnis, my book launch and marketing efforts have been very successful. My book was a best-seller in its category on Amazon, and stayed in high positions for months, including becoming number 1 best seller in multiple categories, both at book launch and several months afterwards. My book, Shorting the Grid, is about the fragility of our electric grid. Lynn and I wrote a strong one-page description of the book. This one-pager helped me get invited to many high-level podcasts and radio shows in the energy sector.
A third party is a great help in marketing efforts. For example, if I want to send a book to a possible reviewer, if I contact the person myself, the whole interaction looks weak. (“Hi, I wrote a book and I want to send you a copy.”) But when Lynn writes, “Hi, I am working with Meredith Angwin, the author of Shorting the Grid, and we would like to send you a review copy. The book is an Amazon best-seller in several energy categories…” Much stronger!
Lynn can boast for me better than I can boast for myself, and Lynn happens to be very good at it! Her emails were very successful at getting results for Shorting.

I’ve worked with Lynn and the great thing is she’ll give you what you’re ready to use. In my case I had a lot to learn so she put together a great “road map” of how to get where I want to go. Now, as I get some of the basics under control, she’s there to help me with the next step. Many kudos, Lynn.
