Meet our publicity and design experts.

The publishing experts are vendors and companies recommended by Köehler Books for authors to consider hiring to promote, market and publicize their work. They have worked directly with some of our authors, earning those authors’ trust and ours. The services they provide are optional for any author and are not offered directly by Köehler Books. The author is responsible for carefully making up their own mind, as well as any business arrangements between the author and the expert, including contracts and payments.

  • Amazon Bestseller Campaign
    Online Promotions
    Krish Media Marketing works with authors and publishers who have control over the pricing so they can run a 99 cent Kindle promotion. If this can be done, then they can analyze key words and days to run the campaign. They will then come back with a date for you to change the price of the book to 99 cents and another date for the author or publisher to change the price of the book back to original price. This costs $499 up front. The rest of the ranking cost is performance-based compensation: #5 - $99 bonus #4 - $199 bonus #3 - $299 bonus #2 - $399 bonus #1 - $499 bonus We monitor the rankings the days of the promotion and will provide screenshots of the rise.
