Your Presenter

Susan Friedmann, CSP is a well-respected niche marketing expert who’s on a mission to wipe out sameness and add vitality and differentiation to your author marketing.

In 1992 I founded Aviva Publishing as a way to publish my own books. Because my topic targeted a specific niche market, traditional publishers weren’t interested in taking the chance to publish my work.

So instead, I decided to do it for myself, and to date, I’ve written 17 books – 13 are self-published and 4 are traditionally published.

Over the years, with the help of some very special people, namely, book writing coaches, Patrick Snow, Christine Gail, ghost writers, Kevin Johns, and Toni Robino, Aviva Publishing has grown exponentially.

For more than 30 years we have helped over 400 authors with their publishing needs and book marketing guidance.

In the book publishing industry, Aviva Publishing is known as a “hybrid publisher.” This means that we publish books at the author’s expense, and the author holds 100 percent of the “rights” and profit to their book.

Once a book is written, the journey has only just begun.  Because, there are still many steps involved in bringing the book to market, our job is to help make that process as easy, simple, and painless as possible for you.
