How We Do It

Cover-Dancing on the Spider's WebThe first step in working with Concierge Self-Publishing is to contact us to set up a time to discuss your project over the phone. Casey has a fairly busy schedule, and we want to make sure you have the undivided attention your book or content deserves.

The discussion will review:

  • Your goals for publication or content development
  • Deadlines you hope to meet and why
  • Your experience
  • How we can best help you

Then we’ll map out a plan for your project, including responsibilities, schedule, and cost. A deposit is required before we begin work. This includes a project management fee to cover time answering questions, coaching, and educating you about the self-publishing process.

“I had just about given up on my novel. One publishing house had kept it for two years, then dropped it. Another deliberated for a year about it before I pulled out. Another wanted it but went out of business. My agent disappeared without a word. A new agent asked to read it and I could get a further response from her. I was on the verge of deciding to write my novels and leave them to my children to figure out what to do with them after I had shuffled off the mortal coil.

Then another writer told me about Casey Dawes, writing concierge extraordinaire. I talked to her, and got a sense that she not only knew what she was doing but she enjoyed it. Her rates were reasonable and I signed on for help in getting my poor, beleaguered novel into existence.” Sasha Paulsen, author of Dancing on the Spider’s Web

Throughout your project, we’ll work side by side with you and answer any questions you may have about the process. Our goal is to produce the book you want, make it the best book it can be, and have you gain knowledge throughout the process so you are comfortable with your decisions.

I found self-publishing to be a most rewarding experience working together with Casey Dawes. I needed the personal touch and expertise which Casey provided in spades. The process calls upon an eye for precise detail, organization and continued reminders: Casey is so very experienced and professional, I never needed to worry on any given step along the publishing journey and am very happy with my published book of poetry. In fact, I’ll be tapping Casey on the shoulder once again to continue our partnership for book number two. She employs a host of professionals to support successful publishing. The fees for her services are very modest and well deserved. Do not hesitate to contact Casey. She is a gem.” ~ Elaine Dugas Shea, author of Dream Transfer and Wander
