About the Maven Game

For an expert, nothing bolsters reputation, establishes credibility, and expands reach like the right book.

After acquiring and editing dozens of bestselling books at New York publishers for more than a decade, I founded Bookitect to help experts build books that matter. Since 2015, I've been putting everything I'm learning from writing six-figure book proposals and collaborating on major business and self-help books into the Maven Game.

For years, this newsletter has offered advice, motivation, and provocation to a small but elite list of literary agents, editors, authors, and others engaged in the serious business of using sentences to inform, inspire, and engage.
