Is Voxie Media a traditional publisher?
No. We are a boutique imprint that focuses on business authors who have a social mission and want to get short, smart and stylish print books and eBooks quickly to market and widely read. We are not a vanity press. We choose our authors and books carefully.
We are also publishing consultants who help business authors write short eBooks and navigate the new world of self-publishing. We prefer the term entrepreneurial publishing. It means treating book publication like a product launch.
How do you work with authors?
We (a team led by Debbie Weil) work with experienced authors to publish short (usually less than 150 pages), rigorously edited and beautifully designed business books and get them quickly into readers’ hands.
Our focus is on editing and stylishly packaging our books for both e- and print publishing. As well as on helping our authors launch and promote their books using social media and innovative word-of-mouth.
Do you only publish eBooks?
Our focus is to quickly publish in e-book format for Kindle, iPad and other e-readers. But we also work with a state-of-the-art book production partner to publish beautifully-designed print books.
Are you influenced by Seth Godin’s The Domino Project?
You bet. Full disclosure: Debbie is a member of the The Domino Project Street Team.
What’s with Voxie?
Vox means voice in Latin. We like the sound of it. Of course, a book, whether digital or print, is one of the best ways to amplify your voice, spread your ideas and expertise – and most important, connect directly with your audience.
