Ingenium Books: Breathing Life into Ideas

Inspired Author Initiative.


Who Is It For?

The Inspired Author Initiative is for you if you are driven to write your book yourself.  You may also be: 

  • Unsure your idea would actually make a good book
  • Confused or intimidated by the process
  • Unclear about how to get the book started and finished
  • Interested in some support and accountability

We solve these problems for you by providing everything you need to write, publish, and market your book. All within 12 to 18 months.



You'll write your own book, but you won’t be on your own.

The experience of writing this book has been so much fun! Boni and John are invested in the success of our book because they believe in the story we have to tell."

-  Gayle Eastman, Author of forthcoming Love You Forever HELP! This Meeting Sucks!

Inspired Author Initiative

Here's what your experience will be as an Inspired Author.

1. Ideation, Book and Project Planning.

Your Inspired Author creative journey begins with ideation, book and project planning. These are virtual video meetings, led by our cofounders Boni and John, editorial team, held over two to three consecutive days to kick off the initiative. We’ll explore your book idea further, identify who your target reader is, talk about purpose and goals and objectives. We'll work together to develop an outline for the manuscript and a project plan that includes your writing schedule.


2. You Start Writing

You'll start the writing process, using the outline and project plan we created during the ideation and planning phase. You'll have up to twelve months to complete your manuscript (and we'll publish six months after that). You'll be paired with an accountability ally to help keep you on track with your writing schedule.


3. Editorial Check-Ins

You'll have regular calls, either one-on-one or group, with a member of our editorial team. You'll be able to talk about progress, ask questions, and receive moral support...all to keep your book moving forward. You'll benefit from tips and resources around writing skills. 


4. Marketing Resources

You'll receive a free copy of our book, How to Craft Your Book Marketing Strategy, along with exclusive access to a pre-recorded webinar. Once you've finished your draft manuscript, we'll talk about and guide you through your marketing planning.


5. Editing

While you're working on your marketing plan (with out guidance) we’re editing the manuscript. You'll be engaged in the process throughout. We also proofread the edited manuscript to make sure it is up to the highest standards and conforms with the appropriate style guide.


6. Publishing & Distribution

We design your cover and interior and prepare all files for hardcover, paperback, and ebook. We manage all the publishing details, from obtaining the ISBN number to inclusion of your book on our website listings. We'll also set up your accounts on Amazon and Ingram Spark, which provides access to 39,000 book stores and online retailers around the world. We create your Amazon author page and write your book description. 


7. Royalties

You own 100% of all the royalties from the sale of your book.

We don't take a penny. 


8. 40 Free Copies

As an Inspired Author you'll receive 40 free copies of your completed paperback book. Of course you can order as many paperback or hardcover copies as you wish, at cost. Print on demand means you can order books – either through KDP or Ingram Spark – and you'll pay only printing and shipping (per Amazon and Ingram Spark terms and conditions, Ingenium Books does not get involved in this part).
