Publisher info

At Emerald Lake Books, we choose to work with positive people who use their books to motivate and inspire their readers while building their business and brand.

When Emerald Lake Books approaches a new project, we focus first on clarifying the goals, both for the reader as well as the author. With specific goals established, everything done from this point is with those goals in mind and success is measured against their achievement. We measure our success by how well your book works to build your business and achieve your goals.

We refer to this concept as “publishing with a purpose.”

This goal-oriented publishing process works well for individuals who think beyond the number of books they sell. Instead, these authors focus on the impact their books will have with each of their readers as well as the underlying business.

Our goal-oriented focus and business-building framework are two of the key qualities that set us apart from many other publishers.
We don’t simply take your manuscript and give you a book, leaving you hoping your sales might cover your expenses. (Honestly, unless you’re an A-list author, you’re pretty much guaranteed that’s not going to happen. And even then, it’s questionable!)

Rather, our goal is to help you see beyond your book to the impact your influence can have. We want you to see the potential that exists to grow your audience, grow your visibility, and grow your opportunities. And when you do succeed, we hope you’ll share your good fortune with others in your own unique way.

All this because your strategically designed book is published with a purpose.
