BookBaby's network of editors

Three things every self-help book needs:



If you want to be known as the expert in your field, then you must showcase your qualifications. Highlight your experience and do your homework-support your ideas and claims with data.


Your voice:

Speak with your readers the way parents do with their children-authoritative, yet supportive. More importantly, make sure your personality shines through because that's what readers connect with.


Experience & examples:

Writing about perseverance? Talk about that time you fell off your bike, but picked yourself up and tried again. Personal anecdotes are powerful, relatable, and easy to latch onto.

Publishing a self help title can make a difference

As self help book publishers, we help authors share their knowledge and create an impact on the lives of others. See how this elementary school teacher transformed her guidance into her own self-help book that prepares students for higher learning. With the help of her own Bookshop™ page, she is now selling her book directly to her readers. That's why we're one of the best publishers for self help books. In addition to offering top-quality printing, we'll make sure that you make money selling your book.

I started writing letters to my sixth graders, and it eventually turned into my book.
