About Us

We understand marketing a book is time consuming if not confusing when you tackle it yourself. We also know it can be expensive to get a professional PR firm or consultant to help with marketing efforts. Not only that, many book promoters, marketers, and coaches have never written a book in their life. This isn't the case at the World of Ink Network as both Marsha Casper Cook and Virginia S Grenier are award-winning, best-selling authors. 

Most authors and small publishers are misled about what it really takes to gain enough media/marketing exposure to sell their books. But we are here to give you the truth most never discover. We'll be completely honest right now...simply having your books listed on major sites such as Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, etc doesn't mean it will sell. In fact, about 90% of most titles according to research will sell less than 50 copies before the author dies and most of those sales will be to the author's family and friends.

To help publishers and authors create awareness for their titles and build, or continue to build, their brand we use a combination of tested book publicity outreach through our established network of media contacts and book bloggers. This powerful combination allows publishers and authors to carry on with novel marketing and promotional efforts long after our services have ended.

We accept all types of publishers, authors and promote books in all categories from self-help, business, cookbooks, to memoirs, fiction and children's books.

How readers discover new books and eBooks is constantly changing. The World of Ink is always looking for new ways to market books from book tours to well-written press releases, and we are always testing new techniques before offering those services to our authors and publishers.
