Uncovers the Book Publishing Mystery
Angela, in her book “Make ‘Em Beg to Publish Your Book”, opened my eyes to a whole new world of publishing. She shares honestly and objectively the pros and cons of publishing and provides future authors with important information for them to be able to make the best decision for their book and their business. I had no idea that there were multiple options to publish a book and I knew even less about how traditional publishing works. Now, with all this new-found information I can make the best decision for me, my book and my business goals.
From Joanne King:
Motivating, Honest and Inspiring
I had a dream to make a difference in others lives, and it all started with a book. That was the easy part. Deciding how to publish or even finding a publisher seemed overwhelming. Many publishers charge people to publish their books, and it can be a confusing maze of information and expense. After reading Make’em beg to publish your book, I have gained the knowledge and clarity to move forward. Angela is brilliant and knows the business inside and out. If you are wondering how to make sense of the publishing world, look no further than this book! Angela can be your personal guide and is truly motivating, honest and inspiring.

From Mark Silverman, author of Only 10s:
Nobody knows the publishing business like Angela Lauria and it is incredible that she has taken so much of that expertise and spelled it out for the rest of us. Not only can Angela help get a book from idea to publication, she takes the reader even further. If you want to take your message, your mission out into the world for maximum impact and you want to make your living from that place, this is the book you should read.
From Mara Linaberger, author of HELP! My Child Hates School: An Awakened Parent’s Guide to Action:
The dream of writing a book is one that many of us share.
Few of us accomplish the task, and even fewer of us have a true understanding of the various processes behind making our books a success. Angela Lauria’s new book proposes a new way actualize that urge to publish – in writing a book that gets our message out to those who need it most, then building a business behind that work to directly serve clients in pain. It’s a bold new vision for the very outdated publication process – one that will help many aspiring authors to not only publish but advance their message and calling while helping clients heal.
From Jessica Eaves Mathews, #1 Best -Selling Author, Speaker, CEO, Lawyer and Business Strategist:
I absolutely LOVED this book!
It was full of inspiring and incredibly practical information for anyone who has dreamed of not only publishing a book but reaching best-seller status. I self-published my own book four years ago and figured out the hard way how to achieve best-seller status on my own, but there was so much I did not know or do effectively in publishing or promoting that book. Boy, do I wish I had had Angela and this incredible book back then! I am writing my second book and am thanking my lucky stars I met Angela and can benefit from her wisdom as I get my big message out into the world! I am so grateful to Angela for sharing the behind the scenes gold nuggets that no one tells you when you go to write a book. I highly recommend this book for aspiring new and repeat authors who want to understand clearly what they really need to do to get their message out into the world and start making a difference!
From Karen Putz:
Angela gives an inside look at the publishing business–and it’s an eye-opening one.
If you are thinking about writing a book or have a completed manuscript, read this book FIRST.
From Stephanie McAuliffe:
I used to think of writing and publishing a book as a romantic act.
In reality, it’s big business and brutal in many ways. Angela shares the many options to publishing, with pros and cons, as well as insights based on her experience. In a nutshell, publishing your book is you running your own business. You as your business.
There are so many with great books to share, yet authors give away their power in the process of trying to connect with a publisher – just for the sake of publishing. As Angela shares so candidly, “you must take full control of the process of exploiting your right.” And getting your message to the people who need to hear it.
From Leah Skurdal:
This book really made sense out of the mystery of book publishing. I’ve wanted to write a book for a long time, not just to see my name on the cover, but to significantly help the reader. Now I see a path to do that. Angela’s book explains details through engaging stories. A great read for someone wanting to actually get their book into the hands of readers.
From Lisa Smith, Parent Coach:
I consumed the book in one sitting. Prior to reading her book, I thought I would not ever write a book. Now I know it is only a matter of time until I am an author!
From Ally Nathaniel:
The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
In this book, Dr. Angela Lauria tells you the whole truth about the publishing industry and why it simply doesn’t make sense to wait for a permission to get your book published.
The reason I know this is all true is because I went through the process myself. I experienced rejections from literary agents and learned that with self-publishing you get to keep not only the rights for your book but the control over your future. In this book, you will learn about the pros and cons of traditional publishing, self-publishing and author-funded publishing.
This book is for you if you wish to learn about how to use a book to get clients, generate income and build your business. It is written in a captivating way that demonstrates perfectly how to write a book that will grab your ideal client’s attention, help them and make a difference in their lives.
From Kristina Hallett, Ph.D., ABPP:
If you have always felt there was a book inside you begging to come out – NOW is the time and Dr. Angela will show you the most effective and efficient way to get your message to the people who desperately need it!
Reading this book will help aspiring authors understand the why and the how to make it happen. At once inspiring and ass-kicking, Dr. Angela’s book is what you have been waiting for if you want to make a difference. This book tops my recommended list for repeat authors, authors-in-waiting and anyone who finds themselves stuck at the starting gate. Seriously – stop making excuses, buy this book, and publish yours.
From Amari Ice:
I loved this book!
Angela is clearly a guru in her industry and a masterful story teller. It was a quick and easy read that reinforced my decision not to pursue the traditional publishing route even if they beg to publish my book. But if I were to change my mind, I now know the best way to handle the big companies should I choose. If you want to write a book that makes a difference AND gets into the hands of the right people you TOTALLY need to buy this book!

From Shari Mallinson:
Wow! Angela has blown my mind.
Every page is packed with valuable, inspirational, game-changing content. Angela flawlessly busts big publishing myths and breaks apart traditional paradigms while laying out publishing options in a clear and concise manner. Not only am I now crystal clear on what’s behind big publishers, agents, self-publishing, vanity houses, and paying to publish but I have a clear action plan on how to follow through with my own personal publishing dreams and aspirations.
From Ilia Blandina:
Make ‘Em Beg To Publish Your Book, the newest book by Dr. Angela E. Lauria puts it all out there in the light as far as the publishing industry.
Her style of story-telling takes you on seat gripping journey of digging deep into what decisions you need to face when it comes to writing your book that may, in turn, make the biggest difference in the world for not only the people you are trying to help but for you and your family.
You know what the flight attendants say, before takeoff, “If there is an emergency, first apply the oxygen to yourself then apply it to your smaller children.” Well, this book is the oxygen.
I was told by three separate people that my destiny was to write a book. The first message came for me by an intuitive healer I met at a coffee shop in Brooklyn after the Christmas blizzard of 2010, I thought, “No way, are you kidding me? We just met, what makes you think I should write a book?” She said, “Oh yeah, mark my words, you have stories to tell and you are going to tell them.” Then a numerologist that interviewed me on a radio show in 2012 gave me a surprise reading and said the same thing. By now, my ears started to perk up. But it wasn’t until a Tarot Card Reader in Florida during the winter of 2015 said the same that I really started to pay attention. Well, I had to listen at that point. By that time I had heard Dr. Angela speak about writing in an online class I had taken during the summer of 2011 and I had signed up for her newsletter. It’s no surprise to say, “she was the first person I consulted with when I suddenly got the download about what my book was going to be about!
If you’ve been told by three independent sources or not, but you know you have a book inside you that has to come out because it’s going make a big difference and you are trying to find your place in the world of personal development, look no further than to start with reading this book. Angela breaks down all the pros and cons on how you should publish your book. Reading this book should be your first step in writing yours.
From Emily Wanderer Cohen:
As usual, Angela Lauria tells you like it is.
There’s no candy-coating in “Make ‘Em Beg to Publish Your Book,” and I’m going to bet that traditional publishers won’t like this book one bit. I spent years with a book idea in the back of my mind, but navigating the publishing industry was not one of my goals. I thought I had to have an agent to get a book deal. But who would represent me, an unknown, with a memoir in her head? I’d heard people poo-poo self-publishing, but I really didn’t understand why, other than the conventional wisdom of, “You don’t pay to publish.” Angela takes the traditional publishing industry head-on and dispels all the common myths that anyone who has ever thought about writing a book has heard. She’s refreshingly honest and straightforward and flips the book on publishing. If you have ever considered writing and publishing a book, Dr. Lauria’s latest is a must-read!
From Nora Ganescu:
This book was written for me!
This is what I felt every minute reading it. Every page brought me an “aha” moment about what *I could have* done since the release of my Ebook and ideas about what I could still do before and after my paperback comes out.
Dr. Angela knows her stuff, and her stuff is to help people make a difference in the world. This book is the business case and the playbook to making this work (with a book, and with your service).
If you are a consultant (like I am), a coach, an expert of a healer do yourself a favor and read this book.
From Beverly Davidek:
Make ‘Em Beg to Publish Your Book is an entertaining, must-read for anyone who’s ever dreamed of publishing a book that makes a difference. It’s one thing to write a great book; it’s another thing to get that book into the readers’ hands where it can have a positive impact on people’s lives. I get that now, and my plan is to do both.
From Erica Ross-Krieger, Business Coach, EFT Specialist, & Author:
What an eye-opener!
My favorite part of Angela’s new book is the section where she metaphorically lifts the curtain on the Wizard of Oz and busts 3 big myths about going with a traditional publisher. Before reading the book, my plan was to put my book in the hands of a traditional publisher…by the time I finished reading this book and really understood the pros and cons of doing so, I decided to go route. I’ve never heard anyone else explain publishing this way. Angela is straightforward, honest, motivating and inspiring and the book was a quick, fun, refreshing read.
From Julie A. Pierce, Fertility & Healthy Lifestyle Coach for Woman Who Want to Leave the Infertility Struggle Behind:

I highly recommend this book if you are wanting the truth about all of your options.
From Jeanne Andrus, Author of “I Just Want to Be ME Again!”:
As an author, I’m asked all the time “how I got my books published.” NOW, I have an answer – read this book to find out EXACTLY how to make a ton of money from your non-fiction book!
From Lindsey Rainwater – Spiritual Grenadier:
Right now, it’s easy to walk into a giant bookstore and think that traditional publishing is a booming, growing industry. But when minds like Seth Godin are talking about the death of this industry, and how antiquated and backward it is, you have to sit up and pay attention – especially if you want to write a book.
Angela Lauria is changing the publishing landscape for sure, but the most amazing thing is how easily she explains WHY the traditional industry is broken, WHY it needs to change, and WHY you should care.
If you have a book inside you (and honestly, how many people don’t?) then you need to read this book. You need to see how traditional publishers are NOT your friends, and they are NOT serving your people. Angela has amazing info, lays out the stats, outlines the problems, and then hands you the keys to creating a solution that will serve you and your people while making sure your intellectual property isn’t ripped to shreds by a self-serving publisher.
From Esther Goldberg:
Angela Lauria has rewritten the publishing narrative. In this quick read, she explains in engaging detail how to get publishers begging to publish your book, instead of the other way around. If you have a mission to help people, and you are ready to do that in a big way through writing a book, this book is a must read. Frankly, I think writers in all genres can learn a lot about the publishing world from this manual.
From Shelly Young, Speaker | Author | Teen & Young Adult Guide | Family Recovery Consultant | Interventionist:
Dr. Lauria has the prescription for how to actually reach your dream of publishing a book that matters. I read the book cover to cover in one sitting. It was so inspiring and motivating I read it again and then began to implement the clearly laid out strategy with my own book idea helping families facing addiction. Within 24 hours of following her guidance, I began to see remarkable results. She didn’t just lay out how to get a publisher to beg to publish your book but also how to make money as an author in the personal development realm.
From Chiao Kee Lim:
One word – WOW.
Angela’s book is incredible – jam packed with more than twenty years’ worth of insights into the publishing industry, with clean tables weighing up pros and cons of traditional publishing vs self-publishing and valuable advice for those needing clarity on which direction to go. What I find incredibly illuminating is the way Angela breaks down the costs (and opportunity costs) and revenue of traditional publishing vs other forms of publishing, it definitely crushed my preconceived ideas about traditional publishing!
A quick, enjoyable and insightful read, I highly recommend this book to anyone thinking about writing a book and getting published.
From Jim Goldfuss – Speaker, Author, and Coach:
Great Book! A must read for any author, or one aspiring to be.

In this book, Angela Lauria shares generously the pearls of wisdom she learned from her previous work in publishing as well as the reasons she is so very passionate about educating all of us about the truth of traditional publishing. I love her no-nonsense, authentic and thorough voice. She makes me want to follow her because I trust in her message.

From Stephanie Wild:
Dr. Lauria explains it all for you!
