Writer Plus Editor or Coach Equals Excellent Writing

Editors and coaches want to improve your writing. When you enter into a relationship with an editor, view it accordingly, it’s not an adversarial relationship. The editor considers your writing objectively and can pick up on character inconsistencies, rhyme, meter, plot holes, grammar problems, and many other issues that you can’t see when you’re writing.

Each of the service providers has its own page for you to review listing their area of expertise, including: 

  1. Beta Readers
  2. Book Development Editors or Coaches
  3. Copy Editors
  4. Developmental, conceptual, and line editing
  5. Dissertation Reviews
  6. Line Editors

Author Barbara Daniels Dena her Book Release For the Soul is Available on Amazon.

“When I completed my book, I did not know where to turn to promote my book until a good friend and author recommended Cat of “Lyon Media Services” to me. To say I have been well pleased is an understatement.

Since my initial launch, Cat has taken the worry out of marketing, promoting, and setting ads for me. Cat has gone above my expectations and helped me boost my sales and reviews. Her knowledge of marketing is top-notch! I highly recommend her services!”

A Memoir By Advocate & Four-Time International Best-Selling Author, Darren Prince & his book Aiming High: How a Prominent Sports and Celebrity Agent Hit Bottom at the Top  Marketed his new E-book & Audiobook 2020-2021 (Forward By “Magic Johnson NBA Superstar)

Darren’s Book Forward is Written by NBA Legend, “Magic Johnson”.

“I have known Catherine for a few years now,
 as we met at a mutual speaking event for addiction and recovery awareness a few years ago. When COVID hit last year, my new book sales stalled some, so I released new audiobook and e-book release formats. I hired Cat to help market them as I knew her forte was in literary marketing and advertising books is much different than running a Sports/Celeb marketing business. I was very impressed with the wealth of knowledge Catherine has in marketing books. She did a professional job. I am a stickler about keeping my personal life private. She gave us exceptional personal service worth way more than the money I paid for her platinum plan and additional services.

My sales for both formats increased, and we acquired more reviews! “I highly recommend her literary marketing and consulting services.
Great job, Catherine.” ~Author, Darren Prince of Prince Marketing Group  https://www.princemarketinggroup.com/

Tony Kelly’s Marketing Testimonial of “Lyon Literary Services.”

“If you need help with the challenge of marketing your new books?
Look to my friend Catherine and tap into the best marketing plans at a reasonable price. Catherine and I have been recovery friends for a long time helped me a few years ago with my first book release, and she did a great job then and is doing an exceptional job now with my newest book.

Her prices for her marketing plans are affordable for all she does. Catherine went beyond and arranged for a podcast show in the USA that helped my book and foundation. The wealth of book sites and book advertising she has is mind-boggling. Her attention to detail is stunning!
I highly recommend her book marketing services, marketing plans, and free consulting.”
“Cheers!” ~Tony Kelly

Former Best-Selling Author Marilyn L. Davis & her Testimonial of “Lyon Literary Services, & about her two new book releases titled “Finding North” and “Memories Into Memoir.”

“After writing my book, I hired an editor, but I knew that it would take more than good words, syntax, and a story to have my memoir noticed. 

That’s when I sought help from Catherine Lyon. We’d known each other through social media and her guest posts on my blogs, From Addict 2 Advocate and Two Drops of Ink.

Cat immediately understood how little I knew about promoting and marketing my books, even though I have thousands of followers on Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, and other sites. I’m not telling you how many followers I have to brag, but to let you know, those aren’t enough. 

Cat got my book reviewed, promoted, tweeted about, and found sites for me to give author interviews. Could I have done any of this for myself? Yes, but not to the extent that Cat could. 

She is also respectful of what it takes to write a book, having written Addicted to Dimes and learning the marketing ropes with her book. 

Don’t think that you know enough, have a viable social media presence, have enough followers, or know how to market your book yourself. 

You need to invest as much in marketing as the writing. Contact Cat today and see your sales soar.”

~Marilyn L. Davis
