What I Do…

I help authors spend less time marketing and more time writing by teaching a proven method of platform building that is simple: you don’t have to be everywhere, just the right places doing the right things. I lean on my 20+ years of experience as a successful marketer to help you figure out how to sell more books and build raving fans.

Platform Audits

I offer a free 15-minute consultation to career authors who are serious about building a platform that will help them reach their goals. If you are a writer aspiring to be a career author, either as a business or a full-time Christian ministry, I can help you put the pieces together that will help you grow your audience whether you are seeking to self-publish or get a traditional publishing contract.

I also offer platform audits that include all your current assets (website, email list, social media, promotional campaigns, backlist and launch schedule) with specific action steps and resources to help you get to the next platform level. To contract this paid service you must first have an initial consultation to see if we will be a good fit for each other.

If you are interested in a free 15-minute consultation, please email me at chris@cksyme.com.

Listen to my new podcast…

In June 2019 I launched The Women Finishing Well podcast with my co-host Diane Bradley as part of the launch of a new ministry for Christian women called–you guessed it–Women Finishing Well. It’s aimed at Baby Boomers who want to finish well and leave a legacy of faith. Give it a listen. We are also on Facebook if you want to check us out there.
