Ready to

Relax,

Write

and Cruise?

DO ANY OF THESE SOUND FAMILIAR?

I've always wanted to, but I don't know what to write.

I want to, but just can't find the time.

I don't want people to judge me.

I just don't know where to start.

Who wants to read my story?

I have nothing to say.

If this sounds familiar, don't worry – you're not alone. Our sole purpose is to help you get from where you are now, to confidently write and publish something that actually excites you.

A CREATIVE PROCESS THAT WORKS!

PROOF FROM ALL OF YOU:

Ocean and his team go above and beyond. There is nothing they won’t do to help in making your dream a reality. Everything about the finished product is top grade, and that’s down to their experience, professionalism and experience in the industry! He’s a fussy one is our Ocean haha! Without a doubt I could not have done this without his mentoring program, it’s massive, It’s extensive and it takes you through every angle needed for publishing a book.

SUE FEENSTRAwww.hellopongo.com

If you are contemplating taking on the challenge of writing your own book can I suggest you make sure you get in touch with Ocean and invest the time and money into his mentorship...you will be glad you did. I had the exciting experience last week of having the first copy of my book, "Feet First" handed to me personally by Ocean. His teams process of helping me get to this point has been invaluable. I feel very proud of what we have achieved and without their support I am confident we would not have the polished product we now have.

I had been somewhat overwhelmed by all that was entailed in publishing a book but Ocean's seminars clarified so much for me. His team ‘streamlined’ everything, making it far less daunting than it appeared. They guided me through every step of the publishing journey, from mentoring and editing to marketing and all in between. They answered my many questions (no matter how trivial) and inspired me along the way. Ocean is a professional genius in his field - a powerhouse of information and motivation - and always ready and willing to share his knowledge. His commitment to each of his authors comes with a personal touch and focus on their individual goals, a hugely positive attitude and a big heart.

WRITING AND PUBLISHING MATTER!

EXPERIENCES FROM OTHERS:

It's not just about boosting confidence or being given tips on selling a book. Rather it's about discussing what skills are needed such as; working on confidence-marketing weakness if you have one as well as identifying strengths; how to counter negative comments as well as considering what effect they might or might not have on you. Additionally, the mentoring helped me understand that this was about telling and selling the story...not just the book. Ocean has had years of experience in this area. His diplomatic and patient approach looks at a number of valuable steps that are critical for first time authors.

MARISA PARKERwww.marisaparkerauthor.com

I have a bias opinion of Ocean Reeve, but how can I not? He has gone out of his way to help me in every way, and this is when I was not paying him! He has been there for all my ups and downs, fears and triumphs. It was in our first mentoring session that he asked me a question that rocked my core, do I think I am an author? At first, I ummed and ahhed and now I am 'F'ing yeah, I am!' I have had an issue with my motivation or creativity, every time I contact Ocean he helps me, no questioning or thinking it was a waste of his time, Ocean just helps me. Would other publishers do that? My creative future is in the wonderful, passionate hands of him and his team, and I would trust no one else with my legacy!

SAMUEL COLBRANwww.samuelcolbran.com

The mentoring sessions and pre-sale strategy were what set the ball rolling for me. I knew nothing about publishing and even less about book marketing. Within one day I had pre-sold over 200 copies. Within a week of receiving the 500 print run they were all gone and I ordered another 500. I am amazed and extremely grateful to Ocean Reeve Publishing as the publishing process and mentoring program was what made the jump from an idea to a successful reality.

WORK WITH THOSE THAT GET IT!

LIKE THESE PEOPLE DID:

What can I say? I met Ocean and instantly knew that he was the person to support me to get my book updated and reprinted exactly as I wanted it! I had not had a good experience prior with a publisher! Working with Ocean was so easy. I highly recommend him as the person you need to go to to discuss what you want when you author a book, what all the intricacies you need to have done and consider, and to follow through with the best outcome. He is a one in a million! I can't thank him enough for what he did for me and will be using him again for my next book!

JENNIE GORMANwww.awesomeauthenticity.com.au

Ocean is highly committed to authors getting them-selves out there so their stories are heard. Working with him allowed me to stay aware of the next step in the process and his support through each step was incredibly valuable. It was exactly what I needed.

TERENCE SWEENEYwww.terencesweeney.com

Working with Ocean has given me a step up in my creative platform as well as given me inner strength and motivation. I have learnt a lot and the mentor program is invaluable and something you can take with you and use in all aspects of business as well as books. It was a great tool to learn. I wouldn't have known what I know had I not leaped.
