THE STORY OF LAUNCHCRATE
I've always been interested in crafting creative stories, so I decided to publish one that held a universal message of having faith during a time when I needed that very notion myself. I grew frustrated by the options available to those who select self-publishing as their first choice, as the profit generated by sales was unequally split; weighted heavily in favor of those who were supposed to be helping you reach your dream. I was receiving 14 cents per copy on a book that had a profit of $5 per sale. Creatives like you and I were receiving the short end of the stick, while the helpers were earning a higher percentage on work they did not create.
I knew there had to be a better way. So I learned as much as I could about the publishing and self-publishing processes, and created a different option to help writers like me. I started LaunchCrate because I noticed there were other authors sharing similar frustrations. While the alternative solutions available came close to helping, they still kept the lion’s share of the profit from work they did not create; your work.
LaunchCrate, was birthed to provide a platform for writers to launch their ideas into the world while keeping the portion of profit they deserve.

WHAT WE DO
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
More than educational, it is a transformational experience. This course far exceeded my expectations. Knocked this one out of the park. This experience was INCREDIBLE!
Her knowledge about the publishing industry is invaluable. She has opened our community up to an industry that we have not previously had a transparent level of access.
After working with LaunchCrate, I better understood the publishing process, the legal requirements of pushing a new book out to the public, and the rewarding feeling of launching my own book and story.
