Why should I write a book?

A book adds prestige to your profile. People are impressed when you introduce yourself as a ‘published author.’ A book adds authority to your reputation as a business leader, a speaker, a coach, a consultant, or a volunteer. In other words, no matter who you are or what you do, authoring a book elevates you in a unique and powerful way. Writing a book is a bucket-list goal for many adults, but the majority
never actually do it.

What types of books does MVHL publish?

We specialize in ghostwriting and editing three types of books: fiction, nonfiction and biographies/autobiographies. Our goal is to meet the needs of our authors and their readers. During our initial interview, we will decide if your book is right for MVHL and if we’re right for you.

How do I know if fiction or nonfiction is right for me?

Readers of all demographics are drawn to a well-written story where they become emotionally involved with the characters and follow their journey as the story unfolds. We find that even if someone has a message of self-help or how-to they want to share in a book, weaving those lessons or principles into a well-written fictional story evokes a more positive response from the reader, causing them to get caught up in the characters and narrative, and creating a “I couldn’t put it down once I started reading” effect. Fiction is a creative way to tell your story and share your core message. Studies indicate that the better and more captivating the story, the more effective it is at changing assumptions and challenging stereotypes as well as educating and inspiring.

What if I want to tell my story?

We have a special division just for you! Our Biography Collection is designed to tell your story so you can leave a legacy for your family, friends, colleagues and associates. We work closely with our clients to capture their journey through life and business. Together we will decide if it will be published as a biography (another author’s name on the cover) or autobiography (you are the named author on the cover).

What distinguishes MVHL from other hybrid publishers?

That’s easy. Mark Victor Hansen himself! No other publisher can compete with his expertise and success as the world’s bestselling author. Our mission is to write impact books and bring your vision to life.

Why should I invest in my own book?

All authors invest in their books, no matter which publishing option they choose. The key difference is when you invest. The hybrid model allows the author to make their investment up front by directly funding the publishing of their book and then reap the rewards with higher royalty rates. With a traditional publisher, they make the initial investment for production and distribution but the author pays in the form of giving up royalties as well as the rights to their work. While the traditional publisher offers a low option upfront risk, many authors are discovering it is not worth the potential profits they forfeit in the long run

Will MVHL publish a book I’ve already written?

Yes, provided it meets our standards for quality and content. We will review your manuscript at no charge so that we can offer the best solution for you.

What is ghostwriting?

The common definition of ghostwriting is the act of one or more person(s) writing in the name of another person, group, company, or institution without receiving a byline or public credit. The estimates for how many books are written by a ghostwriter range from 50% to a whopping 90% in nonfiction.

How do you select my ghostwriter?

We have assembled a team of superior writers from around the globe whose experience and interests are taken into consideration when we assign a project. Once we have a clear understanding of what our authors envision for their book, we match their project with the perfect writer.

Does MVHL use ChatGPT or other Artificial Intelligence (AI)
to write books?

Absolutely not! All of our books are written and edited by humans.

Who will own the rights to my work?

You are the exclusive owner of all rights, titles, and interests throughout the universe under the terms of our Agreement.

How long will it take to publish my book?

This will depend on the type of book we are publishing for you. We strive to deliver a quality book to our clients in the shortest amount of time possible. The time variables are affected by the complexity of the story, your active engagement and ability to turn around requests for interviews, feedback and edit suggestions. We work with each client to map out a plan to meet writing, editing, and publishing goals. The majority of our books are published within one year.

What format will you use to publish my book?

We publish our books in paperback, hardback, and eBook editions unless otherwise agreed to between author and MVHL. Despite the recent rise of
digital books, printed books remain the preferred format, with paperbacks
surpassing hardbacks due to the higher cost. If you choose to invest in an
audiobook, that usually follows six months later.

Can MVHL make my book a bestseller?

No publisher can make your book a bestseller. However, with our experience and by following our advice, you will exponentially increase the probability of achieving #1 bestseller on Amazon.

How do you market my book?

MVHL is your ghostwriting, editing and publishing provider. We are not a marketing company. However, with Mark Victor Hansen’s vast experience and creative imagination, we will share the best marketing strategies for a successful launch and best practices to support your goals for the book. You will receive custom tips on how to promote and sell your book. In addition, we promote our books on the MVHL website, through our social media channels and through podcast interviews with our authors. If you require additional public relations, social media or website support, we can recommend other service providers.
