Book Publishing Questions
Who is the publisher?

With BIB, you are technically the publisher. We provide the tools, expertise, and support, but you retain full ownership and control.

Is BIB considered self-publishing?

BIB is self-publishing with a professional flair. While you maintain the benefits of self-publishing like ownership and control, you also get the expert support and services typically associated with traditional publishing.

What’s the difference between traditional publishing and self-publishing, and which should I do?

Traditional publishing means that you’ve acquired an agent, written a book proposal (or paid someone upwards of $10k to write it for you), shopped the book around, and gotten picked up by a traditional publisher.

This, in and of itself, is highly unlikely. Traditional publishers prefer to seek out content rather than to be pitched content, and they are looking for people with HUGE networks (250k followers on a given social network +) so that they can guarantee book sales. This is because traditional publishers do not actually market your book, so they’re reliant on you to do that with your existing audience– this is a common misconception.

If you do get picked up by a traditional publisher, this comes with its own set of woes. The timelines are WAY longer– it will likely be at least 2 years before your book is released, and you’ll likely only keep a tiny percentage of your royalties (5-15%). You relinquish creative control, as well as your rights.

Self-publishing, on the other hand, puts you in the driver's seat. It’s definitely best for those writing a non-fiction book to go the self-publishing route, and is also better for people with well established audiences to go the self-publishing route, because you stand to make way more money.

Here are some benefits of self-publishing with BIB:

  • Complete Control: You retain full creative and editorial control over your book, ensuring it aligns perfectly with your vision.
  • Faster to Market: Without the lengthy processes of traditional publishers, your book can be in readers' hands much quicker.
  • Higher Royalties: Without a publishing house taking a significant cut, you stand to earn more from each sale
  • Tailored Support: BIB offers a personalized approach, ensuring you get the right guidance at every step, from writing to post-launch marketing.
  • Business Alignment: We focus on making your book a powerful tool for your business, helping you gain credibility, attract clients, and boost your brand.

In essence, self-publishing with BIB offers a blend of autonomy and expert support, ensuring your book not only reaches the market but also amplifies your business impact.

Process and Payment Questions
Can people bump up and down from each program?

Absolutely– this is something we encourage!

Is there a minimum time someone needs to be in the program?

BIB Excel requires a four month minimum commitment, and BIB Essentials and Elevate require a one month minimum commitment.

If I don’t renew after a few months, do I still have access to the list of vetted power partners & the launch plan via the BIB portal

No– if you cancel, you are removed from the program.

Can I pay upfront for X amount of months?

You are welcome to pay upfront for a certain amount of months. It’s important to tell you that your payment will be non-refundable, regardless of if you end up utilizing the number of months you paid for. If you do want to pay upfront for x number of months and then continue on with the program, you will assume normal payments for the rest of your monthly billing.

Do you offer refunds?

We do not offer any type of refund. By offering monthly payments, we encourage you to commit to exactly what you need– nothing more and nothing less!

Are there any guarantees?

We guarantee our best work, and that you’ll get the deliverables that you paid for while enrolled in the program.

Will you hold my book hostage if I don’t renew my membership?

Nope! You’ll get everything we’ve worked on up to that point.

If I don’t renew, is there anything I can/can't do with my book?

Absolutely not! This is a benefit of your 100% ownership.

What’s the average time it takes to write and publish a book with BIB?

6-8 months.

Does the BIB Essentials program take more time than BIB Elevate or BIB Excel?

This definitely depends on the author, but probably. Elevate and Excel have an added layer of accountability, whereas the emphasis in Essentials is on DIY.

Do we ever get to choose our own coach?

We thoughtfully assign your coach based on our experience with them, and what they’ve been successful with in the past. You’re in good hands.

How do I know that you won't be the reason for delays if I’m paying monthly? Isn’t it in your best interest for me to take as long as possible?

It’s not in our best interest at all, actually! Our plan to continue to attract great clients is to do great work as quickly as possible while still guaranteeing quality. We want you to tell everyone you know that we made your book writing and publishing process quick and painless. If you can show us that we were the cause of a delay, we’ll give you a month free.

Mary-Theresa Tringale

I always had a feeling that I wanted to be an author. I thought the only way to do it was to be someone of note (a celebrity or billionaire) and to write an inspirational memoir. BIB helped me see that wasn't the case at all and I already had all of the information I needed to write a book. I was able to use the information I share in my signature program, The Aligned & Empowered Project, to create a book that could reach far beyond my personal network
