- We start with an Uncovery. Uncovery is the planning and campaign engineering process we must go through with each author to maximize your chances of making the list, and more importantly, reaching your success goals.
- After Uncovery, we present our plan. We proceed to work with the author to oversee the implementation, the Uncovery plan.
- Each campaign involves circles of influence, we look at the author’s relationships and their depth. We are interested in online social proof, and visibility in the marketplace. We will work with you to leverage your relationships first.

- Distribution — No fewer than 10,000 books on shelves
- Sales — We need to pre-sell 20,000 copies of your next book so that I can distribute those sales between the right retailers, in the right time frame to ensure compliance in reporting by the retailers, and to ensure the highest percentage of sales are being counted. Of the 20,000 units, 10,000 must be individual names and addresses, the remaining 10,000 orders can either be bulk or individual sales.
- E-book sales — last year the New York Times eliminated its e-book list, but it now has it as a standard to qualify. You’ll need 10,000 ebook sales during the timeframe we run the print sales in order to qualify. As discussed on our call, to avoid bastardize hardcover sales with Ebook sales my team and I have a book club that we can use, at cost, as a solution.
