The book accelerator program enables exciting new book ideas and helps authors land an advance-paying publisher.
Publishizer accelerator batches are reserved for a limited number of hand-picked authors. Authors apply to be part of the program, or a batch, lasting a couple months, in which you obtain mentorship, publisher connections and investment.
“The community experience is created by being among awesome people. Because it’s curated and hand-selected, you feel a part of something special. Struggling, succeeding and learning together reinforces powerfully deep bonds," says Guy Vincent, Founder and CEO at Publishizer.

What if you could launch your book side-by-side with Stu Krieger (screenwriter of The Land Before Time with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, first-time novelist), Lucas Carlson (raised $10.5m, was featured in bestselling book The Lean Entrepreneur, now fiction thriller writer), Lydia Lee (founder of Screw the Cubicle with growing support all over the world, including Tim Ferriss), and other successful authors and entrepreneurs in your cohort?
What if you could create a well-rounded book proposal and campaign in just two weeks? And then launch a preorder campaign the very next week and start vetting interest from publishers?
That’s efficiency — and that’s exactly what Ajit Nawalkha, Co-founder of Mindvalley and Host of Evercoach and Zentrepreneur did. What if you had their support in reaching your sales goals, your publishing goals and your personal life goals that come via a successful book launch? What if this is the community, the family, that brings your book and your publishing journey to the next level?

Pre-sell copies of your book on Publishizer to unlock a direct pitch to the inboxes of traditional advance-paying publishers.
Publishers express interest, and you can respond to the publishers you’re interested in. We offer support and guidance through to signing a publishing deal.
These are publishing imprints of Hachette, HarperCollins, Macmillan, Penguin Random House, and Simon & Schuster. They are the most prestigious and pay the largest advances, however, they offer authors the lowest royalties, ranging from 5-15%.
Traditional publishers pay author advances, which are typically smaller than Big Five imprints, however, their author royalties tend to be better at 10-20%.
Independent publishers may or may not pay author advances, however, they tend to offer the most hands-on support, and offer the most author friendly deal, at 15-50%.
Hybrid publishers may or may not charge authors, which are covered through pre-orders. They tend to be flexible and the fastest to bring your book to market. Royalties range from 50-70%.
Service publishers charge upfront costs, which are covered or subsidised with pre-orders. They offer the highest level of control and ownership, since authors keep 100% royalties.
There are no costs or risks to launch a Publishizer campaign. We keep a 30% fee on pre-orders sold during the campaign, and no commission on advances or royalties. You might get approached by one of our agents, but you're always in control :)Read Case Studies ›
