Kristen Eckstein, the Ultimate Book Coach, is a sought-after independent publishing expert, two time best-selling author and award-winning international speaker. Her reputation is to create books that build your business through Ghost Publishing, a term she coined to define her exclusive independent publishing programs.
Kristen loves books – reading them, writing them and helping other people publish them. She has been interested in all aspects of books ever since she was 5 when she read her first Nancy Drew book. In 2003, Kristen began her book career when she co-ran a vanity publishing company that featured a traditional publishing arm. During this time she learned the ins and outs of vanity, subsidy and traditional publishing – what to look for, what to avoid and how to make sure authors don’t get ripped off.
Ultimately, Kristen left that publishing company behind and co-founded Imagine!Studios LLC, an art and media production company, with her husband Joe. They soon began publishing authors’ books again under their own label. Relocation caused them to hand that portion of their business off to another capable publisher and Kristen began her role as an independent publishing book coach. In 2011, Kristen founded the “21 Ways” series of pocket guidebooks under the traditional publishing label of her company, Discover! Books.
Now Kristen spends her time helping others get into print. To date she has started 44 publishing companies and published 122 books and eBooks, 13 of those her own. She has taken a complicated publishing process and broken it down step by step through her Ghost Publishing method which puts the author in control of the process. Do you have a book you’ve been meaning to write? Let Kristen Eckstein help you publish the book that will bring you business!
