“My only regret with the Cadence Group is that I only found them recently. Before that, I wrote a dozen books over the years, approaching the production, publication, and promotional phase of each one with little in my arsenal but fear, indecision, and a general lack of the best way to get from point “A” to point “B”. The Cadence Group took all that away and made the publication of my most recent book a breeze. Bethany Brown and her staff had the answer for everything, and her enthusiasm for my project was infectious. If you’re looking for help in producing or self-publishing your next book, you couldn’t find a better resource than The Cadence Group.”

“Bethany Brown and her team at The Cadence Group are the best at what they do—creating the professional touches to your manuscript that will make it look, feel, and read like a book published through one of the “big” publishing companies. Further, each person at The Cadence Group not only demonstrates such attention to detail so you get the results you want (and then some), but they also go above and beyond to make your experience easy and stress free.”

“When I founded Old Hickory Press back in 2013, I searched the country for a team capable of producing a book the equal of the best work of the most successful and respected publishers in the world.  Having authored seven books myself for the famous New York legends and having spent a decade as editor of the Chicago Tribune, I knew the level of talent required for that goal.

It took some doing but I found it in the combination of Bethany Brown’s Cadence Group in Chicago and Gwyn Snider’s GKS creative in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Our debut offering, Crockett White’s novel West End, is the proof of excellence.”

“If you’re an author attempting to navigate the complicated world of Amazon, know that there be dragons! However, Bethany Brown, of The Cadence Group, is your key to survival—and success.  She knows her stuff, and furthermore, she shares her time and her talent generously, openly, and effectively. Bethany was able to improve my book’s discoverability on Amazon by applying her “tricks of the trade” (which she definitely has), and sales have clearly improved because of her efforts. Thanks, Bethany! You totally rock.”

“Bethany Brown, principal of The Cadence Group, was an absolute pleasure to work with in the distribution and account set up for my first novel. Her knowledge and expertise ensured my book was placed in the best possible location for maximum exposure on Amazon, and because of that, my book reached the Top Ten Amazon Best Sellers in its first week on the market. I am grateful to have found Bethany, who made the complicated very simple for me, and I am eager to work with her on my next novel.”

“In my long journey to publish my first children’s book, two elements were especially challenging. Those elements were: how to strategically and properly set up softback, hardback and ebook accounts at my two independent publishing platforms, Amazon’s CreateSpace and IngramSpark; and how to get my book reviewed by “mommy bloggers.” Bethany Brown’s expertise with account set-up and knowledge and contacts with the “kidlit” world were incredibly helpful in meeting those challenges. She responded to my requests quickly, soothed my anxiety calmly and cannily predicted exactly how many blog post reviews I could expect. I couldn’t have achieved the production excellence, exposure and sales success to date without the help of The Cadence Group.”

“I was a lost puppy trying to release a book, and Bethany at The Cadence Group and Gwyn at GKS Creative were quite possibly the perfect solution to all my problems. They allowed me to be a part of the process as much as I wanted to, and took control when I asked. They listened to my naive opinions and ideas and rather than shutting them down, worked with me to turn the final product into an artistic success.”

“Working with The Cadence Group comforted and guided me during a very stressful time, when all seemed to be falling apart on my path to getting published. The world of book publishing can be daunting, especially for a first-time author. The Cadence Group are true pros! I came to them for guidance in getting my book, Alphatudes, The Alphabet of Gratitude published. They held my hand through the entire process. They had pre-vetted all of the essential contributors in the process to publication – the graphic designer, printers, fulfillment houses etc. This was a huge savings of my time and energy! What I really appreciated was their honesty, straightforwardness and responsiveness. It is easy to make costly mistakes in the publishing business and I felt reassured that Bethany and her team had my back and my best interest at heart. You can’t go wrong using them to give birth to your “book baby.” It is a birthing and labor process and Bethany and The Cadence Group are the mid-wives I would choose to use again, should I give birth to another “book baby.”
