Do you want to WRITE and PUBLISH a book, but…

  • Don’t have the time?
  • Don’t know how?
  • Need to know your options?
  • Don’t know your next steps?
  • Want to make sure it’s “world class?”
  • Not sure what’s stopping you?

If you’ve dreamed of having a book that will take your life or business to the next level or even build a career as an author, I can guide you or perform the actual services.


… Then I thought, Rodney would be the one to know what to do. Rodney is an amazing ghostwriter, editor, and publisher who I’ve worked with for years. What he doesn’t know about creating and launching books on Amazon, Ingram Spark etc., is not worth knowing.

I can help with as MUCH or as LITTLE as you NEED.

Hello, AUTHOR!Yes, you!

I’m Rodney Miles. As with anything, insight, guidance, and inspiration make all the difference in the world. You get those things by hiring or learning from an expert. And we’re not just talking about your results, we’re talking about your experience getting there. I think you should enjoy a healthy process as well as great results…

Oh my God, I just briefly scanned the book, and I am so in love! You’re f***ing nailing it! I can’t thank you enough for making my vision come to reality.

After being involved in over 300 books, I now serve authors in four ways:

  • Professional AUTHOR SERVICES, drawing on my THIRTEEN YEARS of experience (and joy) in the business (I’m a bibliophile), doing all the heavy lifting, freeing your creativity and time whether we start with an idea or your notes and materials. It might start with a FREE 20-MINUTE INTRO CALL to meet, determine your needs, and provide an estimate of hours and steps toward your own customized project plan. My favorites are memoirs and children’s books, business books, but I love working on ANY kind of book.
  • Paid CONSULTATIONS with professional advice (and the option for a suggested CUSTOMIZED PROJECT PLAN) to get you professionally designed, produced, published, marketed, and launched. You can schedule yours HERE, and if you then buy a block of hours I’ll credit what you spent on your consultation. (I know, cool, right?)
  • Definitely BUY MY BOOK, The Book Dude’s Guide to Self-Publishing! Over the last decade (more, actually) I’ve distilled the BEST PRACTICES of self-publishing into a simple, easy, and enjoyable self-published author’s guide for a GREAT PROCESS and PROFESSIONAL RESULTS. To be released July 18, 2023 and now available for preorder at a discount.
  • Tune in to my LIVE, WEEKLY PODCAST, “The Book Dude’s Guide to Self-Publishing Livestream.”
  • And … I’m considering a week-long AUTHOR’S ADVENTURE RETREAT in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Let me know if that’s interesting or to be placed on the interest list, please, by writing me HERE.

I’m glad you found me, and I hope we get to meet and talk about your ideas. I need to know I like your project just as much as I hope you’ll trust me with your dreams of a book. I know how books change lives and make dreams come true. And when you’re ready, read the free chapter or buy my book, check out the live weekly podcast, or hire me as your coach or collaborator.

Books change lives, for authors as well as for readers. It would be a privilege to be involved in yours in any way I can. ~ Rodney



I PRIDE MYSELF on the results of a project, and I see them as three types:

  • AN EYE-OPENING, FUN, MEMORABLE PROCESS which often leads to greater understandings of oneself, one’s life or business, new clarity, and renewed purpose and excitement for life and living.
  • A “HEALTHY” AND “SUCCESSFUL” BOOK you are proud of (and can earn income from) the rest of your life. A “healthy” book actually sells and gets read, and a “successful” book accomplishes the goals you had in mind when you first dreamed up the idea of having a book.
  • A NEWLY ENABLED AUTHOR who can now leverage and enjoy greater credibility and reach, with new opportunities afforded by a healthy and successful book.

Add to that when projects are “over” (I am always interested in the long-term success of you and your book), we are usually good friends, and that about sums up why I love my job so much. I’m not looking for a million clients. My ideal is that my small network of author-client friends grows through the years, as do our careers.

It’s more fun that way. And when I see you unboxing your first print copy, proudly signing books, appearing on television and radio with your book of expertise, reaching more people with your cause or message, or maybe just proudly holding your memoir or happily reading your children’s book to your child or grandchild, I have to think Emerson would be proud. I know I am.
