Are you ready to publish your book? While there are dozens of platforms available to self-publish your book, it is easy to get lost. What we provide is coaching you along the way, helping you to convert your Word file, Google Doc, HTML document, LaTeX document, or (with some editing) even your text document to publish it as a paperback, hardcover, or ebook on Amazon, Google, and Leanpub. If your book fits into our general selection of topics, we can even manage all the paperwork for you and publish it under the LODE Publishing label.

The ideal time for a writer to work with a publisher is at the very beginning to specify the goals, target audience, scope, etc. of your book. This is ensures consistent quality of writing and prevents costly restructuring at the end of the process.

Of course, we offer technical services for publishing finished manuscripts. If your manuscript still needs work, we will suggest copy-editing, consistency checking, and proofreading services. If you are still missing a book description or outline, it might be worthwhile to discuss the underlying ideas of your book before moving forward. If you do not already have a cover, we can offer you a cover creation service.

If your text meets these basic prerequisites (spelling, grammar, etc.), we need to gather the following items:

  • Manuscript
  • Book description
  • Cover
  • Keywords
  • Categories
  • Publication date (if published elsewhere)
  • Book size (for printed books), quality (for images), and type (e-book, softcover, hardcover)
  • Price

With these items, we can execute the technical conversion of your existing text into the right format.

- The trial session (by default via video conference, but we also offer text chat on request) is free and non-binding.
- You can ask specific questions about our coaching and how we'll work together.
- During the meeting, we will discuss what steps are required to reach your goal.
- If you do not have a goal yet, that is fine, too. We can discuss various topics; you select what path to pursue.

- If you are happy with the session, you can book individual coaching sessions.
- If applicable, we will send you an estimate with a summary of the planned work outside the coaching sessions.

Clemens Lode

Hello! My name is Clemens and I am based in Düsseldorf, Germany. I’m an author of books on philosophy, science, and project management, and coach people to publish their books and improve their approach to leadership.

I like visiting the gym, learning to sing, observing animals, and creating videos on science and philosophy. I enjoy learning from nature and love the idea of optimizing systems.

In my youth, I was an active chess player reaching the national championship in Germany, and an active pen&paper player leading groups of adventurers on mental journeys. These activities align with my calm approach to moderating meetings, leading meetups, and focusing on details. My personality type in socionics is IEE/ENFp.
