It is never easy to launch something that has never been...
Words Matter Publishing was founded by T.S. Koelling a ghostwriter who worked with multiple publishing houses and saw how terrible the authors were treated. After years of seeing the dreams of writers crushed, she decided to do something about it…so she set out to launch a publishing house that would treat authors with respect and help them reach their publishing goals. In November of 2016, she officially opened Words Matter Publishing House as a traditional publishing house.
In May of 2017, WMP released it’s first two titles in four formats. By October 2017 WMP had surpassed all initial goals, web traffic was up, submissions were flowing in and the flourishing company had 9 titles in 30 formats with 12 more titles in the production process.
With production running smoothly WMP set out to develop a marketing plan for each title and author. Their strategy encompassed progressive publicity and an innovative ongoing outreach program into multiple platforms with a strong emphasis on online exposure and niche markets.
In August 2017, WMP launched its Facebook page and by September had signed authors in multiple countries.
In October 2017, WMP kicked off the first of many Book Writing Contests. The company is using the contest to meet authors in all genres. Word of mouth soon set Facebook aflame with news of the contest and the response was nothing short of phenomenal. Door for entries will close on December 31, 2017, with winners announced in January 2018.
Immediately after the launch of the Book Writing Contest the company website had to be expanded to handle the traffic.
2018 brought about great growth and multiple expansion projects. The Gold Shelf program to place all WMP titles into retail stores, The Million Friend Network to increase sales, WMP Productions, live events, and book shows.
As WMP grew the Founder and CEO didn’t forget her promise to treat authors right, in fact, she still works closely with each author and strives to answer all incoming submissions and emails personally.
Determined to continue to grow at a steady sustainable rate WMP has many projects in the makings for helping each WMP author maximize their sales and advance their writing careers.
