Getting Published Is Not What it Used to Be.
but then…neither are books…
Mini-eBooks let you publish your ideas quickly — in series or individual volumes.
Sell your mini-ebooks on major shopping portals or use them to build your following.
Upsell your online training course or master class for high earnings and passive income.
Customized marketing, product strategy, and author branding help drive revenue for the author.
The problem with Books…
Nobody reads books anymore. Who has the time, anyway?
Information is freely available online (did we mention it’s free).
Attention spans are shorter and shorter every day.
Everybody is an author these days!
Today’s publishing models fail to resolve these issues. Self-publishing and Vanity publishing is for the masses and offer no prestige or quality control. The big publishing houses offer no marketing and old-school royalty deals.
In every case…you’re left with the responsibility of marketing the book…and nowhere to go for concrete results.
A New Experience for Authors.
Here’s What Makes it Better…
Our mini-ebooks are powerful nuggets of information alchemy that combine text and images for an engaging experience. They are easy to read and easy to write.
Our books come alive with multi-media. Our media enriched ebooks are small, full-sensory experiences that engage audiences and deliver tons of content in a small package.
Move your readers from your free mini-ebook to your complete online course or master class. This is where you generate passive income and develop your brand and unique value.
We use a series approach for most of our revenue-generating ebooks. A series of mini-ebooks can combine into a high-ticket item — better revenue than a normal book, more like an online course. Don’t think you have a series in you? Your content might fit into one of our in-house series — giving you the power of our brands behind your work (like writing a “for dummies” book).
Our Publishing and Marketing Platform. Your Expertise and Authorship.
Together, we’ll build your mailing list of fans & followers.
Your mini-ebook can be used as a free gift to build your mailing list and promote your other revenue-building products and services. Our mini-ebooks are the perfect way to introduce your followers to your “for pay” programs and services.
We offer royalty contracts for approved courses and ebook series. We promote these programs using our Joint Venture product launch programs and our special promotional campaigns, such as our Books That Plant Trees Program and our Mini-Book Club, our 22-Day Journeys, and many others.
After launching to our in-house and Joint Venture audience, we publish on Kindle and iTunes for extended, long-term exposure.

What Authors Are Saying…
“My heartfelt thanks to Christopher Van Buren for the coaching session. In a short time he pinpointed the direction that I should be taking. Can’t believe I developed an ecourse and a fantastic book as a result. Thanks Oriel Rayner for her superb editing and guidance along the way. Last but not least, your graphic design team is the best on this planet.”
“I have worked with Chris for more than twenty years. Unique among marketers, he really understands content and the need to try various approaches. Chris is dependable and has wonderful work ethic and high integrity in everything he does. Chris is a wonderful writer and can help create great copy.”
“You may have seen my recent Our Money Stories ebook. I was immensely pleased with the process and product – moreso than any publisher I’ve worked with. If you are considering an ebook to gain a larger audience for your practice or products, I highly recommend contacting LaunchMoxie and checking out their ebook production services.”
“I loved my mini-ebook that LaunchMoxie created for me. it is such an incredible way to market my book by offering my readers a teaser, a way to experience the energy before reading the book. It is an incredible marketing tool, a very Yummy product.”
“Chris Van Buren and his team are truly dedicated to using the most effective and creative means to assist authors in marketing their books. Chris has always been there when I needed him and has always delivered what he promised. The launch for my last book Life Is Impossible 12 Universal Rules was a genuine success and has led to many more channels of opportunity than conventional marketing means would have opened.”
“Chris is the best damn ebook builder ever!”
The biggest takeaway from the Summit so far has been Christopher Van Buren’s “How to Prioritize Your Book Marketing.” His Bookmarketing Inventory was a real kick-in-the-pants for me when I was immediately able to see that I need to put a lot of work into my “Relationship Asset.” His four inventory categories (Media, Relationship, Content & Technology, Financial) quickly gave me direction and point to where best to put my energies.
Christopher’s approach is clear and pragmatic and prevents you from getting off track as you try to cover all the necessary steps to publish, launch and market a successful book.

Frequently Asked Questions…
What kinds of books are you looking for?
We are interested in self-help, human potential, alt health, parenting, beauty, business success, cooking, gardening and related topics. We are seeking original concepts and are fond of counter-intuitive ideas and approaches or new ways of explaining traditional concepts. We are also very interested in authors who can write more than one mini-ebook or who can convert a digital course into a series of multi-media ebooks.
Do I get to approve the cover and interior design?
Absolutely. You get to approve everything before the ebook is published.
Who owns the copyright to the content?
You own the copyright and you give us the right to distribute the ebook for you. We retain rights to the graphic design elements added by our designers.
Can the content come from other published material?
Yes, as long as you have the right to use it, and it’s not competitive with our mini-ebook. For example, you can excerpt material from a larger book or from a video or webinar you’ve done. But you cannot have another mini-ebook with essentially the same content in it.
What’s the price of the final ebook?
Many of our mini-ebooks are used as IFOs (Irresistible Free Offers) to help authors build their following and their mailing lists (the backbone of an author marketing platform). If we publish the ebook for sale, we’ll determine the price together, but most of our multi-media mini-ebooks are from $7.99 to $19.99 and our regular mini-ebook without media range from $0.99 to $5.99.
Can I sell the ebook myself -- from my own website?
Sure. You can also send people to our portal to purchase and receive a commission in addition to your royalty. This often works out to be just as good as selling it yourself.
Can I give away promotional copies to friends and partners?
Yes. You will have a copy of the ebook that you can give away for promotional purposes. We ask that you do not use any bulk mailing or automated systems for doing this.
What if I don’t feel ready yet...can you help me develop my concept?
Absolutely. We can get you from ZERO to the point of having a beautiful ebook showing your work and message.
Is there any cost for this?
Yes. We are a “hybrid publisher” which means we share investment into each book project with the authors. We ask the author to cover production costs, while we cover all distribution and marketing costs. Authors with large followings who are able to promote their work may be able to avoid these costs completely (inquire for details).
