Your Book Concierge
Find Your Book’s Why
Do you have a lot of wisdom to offer readers, but you’re not sure what to focus on? A book should have a core message that instantly grabs readers and makes them want to pick up your book. You can start to get at what that is for your readers by asking yourself a series of questions about your book’s purpose and intention. Specifically, your book needs a compelling answer to this question:
Why do readers simply have to read it? You can discover this with our tried-and-tested worksheets or with the help of an experienced book coach. By the end of this step you’ll have a full outline or “Table of Contents” for your book.
Every author’s journey is different, so here you’ll spend some time figuring out what is the best process for you with a dedicated project manager. How do you want to write your book? This may be setting out a clear writing schedule, connecting you with an accountability partner or using one of our New York Times bestselling ghostwriters. Once you have a manuscript finished, it’s onto our team of editors, typesetters and designers. By the end of this step, you’ll have a polished manuscript fully packaged with a beautiful cover and compelling blurb, ready to hit the shelves. All work is backed by our Cascadia Care Promise.
Every year hundreds of thousands of books are published, so how will your book stand out? How can you ensure it gets into the hands of the right readers? You need a marketing plan tailored to you and your book to ensure a successful launch and long-term sales.

Praise from our Authors
“Having built a successful business, I wanted to share all the hard lessons I’d learned along the way – but I felt overwhelmed at the sheer amount of material I could draw from. And then I started working with Cascadia. First my author coach helped me figure out exactly what I wanted to say in my book, then helped me sift through all my notes to show how best to create a solid book outline with practical points that built logically – and then to illustrate each point with a funny, poignant or pithy example from my career. The book was great fun to write, and then my Cascadia editor showed me all the ways to make it even better – ensuring good flow, clarity of ideas and overall readability. Finally, the production folks were amazing at taking a Word document and transforming it into a book. At every stage, my Cascadia teammates were friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. These folks are experts at what they do and I couldn’t have asked for better support.”
Joel Primus, author of Getting Naked: The Bare Necessities of Entrepreneurship and Start-Ups
“Using Cascadia Author Services proved invaluable for me as an author and as an instructor with a busy training schedule. Truth is, I could not have done it without their help and ongoing guidance. I was particularly impressed with their start-to-finish process; their step-by-step procedures made the entire process easy for me to handle with my daily tight schedule. Although everyone involved was helpful, my project manager Michelle was not only helpful but also very responsive to my questions, saving me lots of invaluable time. Being in the seminar business, I often sell books in person, and Cascadia made this process easy. I also use Cascadia for their expertise in launching my books through social media, along with their knowledge regarding marketing campaigns. Thank you, Cascadia, for the part you played in making my books a reality!”
Rob Vivian, author of Expecting Awesome Daily
"The level of service was exceptional. All aspects for publishing my book were covered. From development and copy editing to book design and marketing helped me create a better book that is positioned very well to sell many copies of it. The communication was excellent. I understood the steps to be taken and the timeline to expect. I highly recommend their services to anyone who is looking for assistance in the publication and promotion of their book."
Jeff Baldassari, author of From Associate to Ambassador: The Distinctive Skills Every Law Firm Associate Must Master to Enjoy an Exceptional Career
“Ben and his team were a complete pleasure to work with on my book. They helped me at every stage of the book and I benefited immensely from their experience and expertise. I used the book to market my services as a financial advisor, and the feedback from readers was so positive, and my results so successful, that I received more client requests than I could handle and had to start turning potential clients away! I would highly recommend Cascadia for any of your writing needs.”
Jamal Khan, author of Total Financial Independence
“I have been working with the folks at Cascadia Author Services for the past six years. They have helped me with editing, proof reading, formatting, illustrating, and marketing, to name a few. These services helped me successfully launch my saga “The Prophecy”, including “The Crest”, “The Emerald” and “The Destiny”. I am truly grateful for their enduring support and remarkable and varied talents. I constantly recommend Cascadia Author Services to anyone who asks.”
Jerena Tobiasen, winner of the 2020 Canada Book Award, 2020 Independent Press Award, 2020 Next Generation Indie Book Award, and the 2021 Hemingway Award for 20th Century Wartime Fiction
“Cascadia’s team helped me navigate the traditional publishing world and guided me through the process of in-depth marketing of my books. When I first looked at additional book marketing, I was overwhelmed – there’s just so much out there to consider! But the Cascadia team brought real expertise to the table. They became my initial front-line marketing team, even as they prepared me to take over the majority of the book marketing as the final goal. They overhauled my website and all my social media, taught me how to blog efficiently, and helped me really identify who my target audience is for my various genres. Cascadia is friendly, flexible, supportive, and always looking out for my best interests. Now I feel more confident doing a lot of the online marketing work myself, but I’ll still rely on my Cascadia friends to give continuing professional guidance and to help steer my marketing efforts in a dynamic world.”
Sara Dahmen, author of the “Flats Junction” series
"When I retired, I decided to write a thriller novel. And I would write it in English, even though my first language was Swedish. At first, I was proud of how my story turned out, but as I started working on the sequel, my English improved, and I soon realized I desperately needed a professional editor for both books. Cascadia Author Services was highly recommended, and I signed on for an evaluation by their editor extraordinaire, Michelle Balfour. I was genuinely impressed. She made significant contributions to crafting my thriller masterpiece. I can't tell you enough how those edits helped strengthen my story. I promptly signed up for more of their services, stylistic editing, copy editing, cover design, and marketing support. It was a pleasure working with a team where everyone was an expert at what they did and also helpful, friendly, and highly knowledgeable. I learned more from Kailey and Marcelo than I had ever dreamt of and signed up for the same services for the sequel. (Successfully published in June 2023). I highly recommend this extremely professional organization and staff. I have found a home for my books."
Ulla Håkanson, author of The Price of Silence and Flight Across Waters
“Cascadia Author Services made my first book more than possible–it has made it shine. You will know what I mean by looking at the book reviews on Amazon (Intro and a few chapters are free, too). You will find Bennett Coles wrote the most beautiful blurb for this book if you scan through the first few pages.
But you still won’t know who did the heavy lifting behind the scenes. Michelle Balfour was the developmental and line editor. I can’t say enough about her working with a new author like me because one has to be there to know it. So, if you are serious about writing a book that people will take seriously, Cascadia Author Services will help you do that.”
Cheng Wang, author of From Tea to Coffee: The Journey of an “Educated Youth.
“From one-dimensional to brilliant! This is how I can describe my manuscript from its initial state to now, after Cascadia Author Services professionals, both editors and artists, have improved its presentation and content. From the time I submitted the manuscript to Cascadia until it came back rearranged, easier to read and with great suggestions, the improvement was absolutely amazing! Starting with an eye-catching front cover followed with a narrative nonfiction story that has been streamlined and made much more interesting, I am more confident than ever that my book will hit the shelves with a bang! Thank you, Cascadia!”
Ben Maure, author of Leading at the Edge (IPPY Silver Medal Award Winner)
“I was genuinely impressed with all of the team at Cascadia. Their support was outstanding through every phase of creating my book. In particular, they really listened to my ideas about cover design and produced not only exactly what I wanted, but also exactly what the book needed. Their expertise on what makes an effective cover was communicated to me in a professional, supportive and patient way. Every stage of editing and book production felt like a friendly collaboration. Even months after my book launched, and I succeeded in getting the book accepted into the biggest bookstore chain in the UK, the Cascadia team was there to provide expert guidance and advice as I navigated the bookstore distribution labyrinth. An author couldn’t ask for a better industry partner than Cascadia Author Services. I highly recommend them.”
Ian McBeath, author of Going Coastal
"Cascadia Author Services met and more often exceeded my expectations in working with a professional company to help me self-publish my latest book on sleep. Having self-published two sleep books more than 20 years ago on insomnia and on nightmares, I anticipated more to contend with in publishing this larger and more comprehensive work, Life Saving Sleep. Indeed, the questions arose so fast and furiously, I started losing sleep just dreaming about (or was it nightmares?) all the ramifications. The remarkable thing about Cascadia is their capacity to answer all questions with accuracy, detail, and in a timely manner. It was as if I was conducting a search online, and then every click yielded best answers or perfect info as the very first response. Better still, they supplied all kinds of information I had not even realized I should have been asking about. Supremely professional organization and staff. Recommend highly and already planning to work with them on my next book!"
Barry Krakow, MD, author of Life Saving Sleep: New Horizons in Mental Health
