I’m Michelle Vandepas

Co-founder of GracePoint publishing and I have 24 years of experience in all aspects of publishing. As you can imagine, everything has changed in those years, and I’ve kept up with it all, the good, bad, and the confusing, so you don’t have to.

(Should I publish directly on Amazon or through a distributor?)
(How will I know how many copies of my book will sell?)
(If don’t know how to TikTok or selfie, am I doomed?)

I’ve helped authors with all types of publishing including getting agents, book deals, self-publishing, and getting out of contracts that no longer worked for them.
Some of our authors have had movies made about them and been interviewed on major media platforms, and some have gone on to build successful businesses.

This is me walking out of our building in Colorado Springs. Our team is partly in office, partly remote and some even hybrid!  You are always welcome to stop by and have tea if you are in the area! (Karen took the photo! I love it)

However, sometimes writing and publishing your book is enough. I’ve had a client reach out after hearing her book saved someone from suicide. Another author is helping women who have experienced trauma in childhood. Another volunteers with foster youth.

No matter your background, inspiring story, or lack of writing skills ,you can become a publishing consultant and have great stories to share about your clients and their books.

Your support when we did our coaching was life-saving! I just sold out (well almost) my new venture an advanced premium workshop for academic writers for 2k each so, thank you for everything, again!

It was Michelle who introduced the idea of an online launch, what would need to be done to make the book a “best seller” in Amazon and gave support and guidance. In other words, in this day and age, I’m not sure seeking a traditional publisher makes sense, so the effort that would be needed to find a traditional publisher would be better spent, most likely, in connecting with a small nimble publishing company that can help you with all elements of the publishing, including the marketing elements that will be needed, such as GracePoint Publishing.
Tanya Deckla Cobb
As an author who previously self-published, I really appreciate the expertise that GracePoint Publishing brought to my latest book. Working with a team that has knowledge about all phases of the process including editing, cover design and marketing has helped make this a book a great representation of my brand. I couldn't have done it without them!
Erick Jackier
You have a way of teaching that feels very approachable and open. Clients can feel comfortable knowing that what they share with you will stay with you unless they give permission to share. You come from a safe and non-judgmental place.
