We turn business leaders into published authors.

Book authorship, for personal promotion, to create powerful ‘lead generation magnets’ for use in advertising and marketing, for securing favorable media attention and publicity, to promote a business, a cause or philosophy, for fun or fame or fortune…is the most proven, most powerful activity a person can take.


  • Self Publishing vs. Traditional Publishing

    180 DAYS OR LESS TO LAUNCH

    We demolish the barriers that once stood between you and getting a book done. In less than 24 hours of your time, our expert team of ghostwriters and designers will produce a stunning book—stamped with your name on the cover, brimming with your stories and insights.

Our Authors, In Their Own Words

Pat Williams

Senior Vice President of Orlando Magic

"As the co-founder and senior vice president of the NBA's Orlando Magic, I have been blessed with the opportunity to share my stories, tips and strategies for success with audiences around the world. I'm now a professional speaker, and⁠—you guessed it⁠—I am also an author. In fact, I have published over 60 books on the topic of business, motivation and self-help over the last 35 years. I have had the opportunity to publish three books with Advantage Media Group. I am thrilled with their work! Advantage can help you create a high quality book in a couple of months and make every author feel like they're Ernest Hemingway, just as they've done for me. When I speak and sell my books in the back of the room, I routinely get many compliments on the look and feel of the books that I published with Advantage. People love the professional appearance of the covers and interior design. However, the most remarkable thing about Advantage isn't the physical book, but their remarkable people. When they talk about the ‘Advantage Family,’ they really mean it. l have never worked with a publisher that invests so much time and effort into creating a positive ‘author experience.’ I know a winning team when I see one, and the Advantage team is a winner."

Brian Fricke

Financial Advisor & Speaker

"The Advantage team did an exceptional job in publishing my book, Worry Free Retirement. From editing, to creative and design, to printing and distribution, everything was done in a first-class manner that resulted in a top-flight book that looks as good as the best-sellers from Random House. Most importantly, working with Advantage has given me a book that has raised my credibility and authority-status. My book has helped me differentiate myself and my company in a very crowded industry. Furthermore, the book has lassoed in at least a half dozen new clients into our firm, all of which have a lifetime client value to our business of $50K+ each. From a money making perspective, the book has been an important tool to acquire new clients and grow revenue. At the end of the process, I am proud to say that I not only consider you my publisher but my friend, too. Annette and I enjoyed the warm hospitality your team gave when we were in Charleston for the Author Marketing Summit. I appreciate Advantage's frequent ‘touches’ and family environment. As the old saying goes, ‘a referral is the greatest compliment you can give.’ I hope the 5 people I have referred to speak with Advantage thus far demonstrate my satisfaction."

Charlie Epstein

Founder of Epstein Financial Services

"Being a published author is an absolute game-changer. It accelerates the entire sales process. But most importantly, I knew I was working with seasoned professionals dedicated to one thing and one thing only: making me the most successful, prominent, sought-after authority in my market."
Chuck-Garcia-Speaking-Summit

Chuck Garcia

Founder of Climb Leadership International

"Prior to book publication, my business was flat. The book increased my revenues five-fold… It has been a never-ending stream of opportunities."

Michael Burgdorf

Founder of Burgdorf Plastic Surgery

"I realized a book was a golden opportunity to fuel the growth of my practice. I wanted to forever be known as the ‘guy who wrote the book on it.’ It is truly one of the best differentiators out there."

Misty Young

Founder of Squeeze In

"The book creates a level of success and assurance that other people find difficult to attain. They didn’t write the book on restaurant success, but I did."

Dave Hopson

Managing Partner of Triumphus

"Coming into the Authority Marketing Blueprint Day, I thought I had my company’s marketing completely figured out. WRONG. The Blueprint Day was hands down, the best day of my year. My eyes were opened, a new strategy was crafted, and an execution plan was determined before I left Charleston."

Liz Hilliard

Cofounder of Hilliard Studio Method

"To say that I was blown away with what we accomplished together during our Authority Marketing Blueprint Day would be an understatement! It was an intense day, but without a doubt, we accomplished more in that day than I had the entire previous year."
Jack Daly

Jack Daly

International Sales Expert

"The fastest way to build your personal authority brand is to associate with established larger brands. There is no better business brand in the world than Forbes. "

Dan Kennedy

Founder of Magnetic Marketing

"The incredible team at Advantage knows book publishing inside and out and do a terrific job. They understand a book is a marketing tool to grow your business and approach their business that way. Had they existed in my first few decades of business life I could have advanced faster with less difficulty. Anybody can merely print a book, just as any monkey can put letters on paper, given a typewriter. Advantage has the expertise to guide you in good decisions every step of the way. Their team, expert guidance, and personalized approach deliver first-class publishing and authority marketing for the business professional. Advantage is THE company I rely on for many of my book projects (and I've been published by traditional publishers like Penguin and Simon & Schuster) and THE company I refer to my private clients. You will be wasting your time to look any further."
