Mark O'Neill

Have you always wanted to see your book out with your name on the cover?

Had you heard of self-publishing but never knew how to go about it properly?

Then let me help you make your dream become a reality!

My name is Mark O’Neill and I am the author of TWENTY bestselling, award-winning fiction novels. All self-published, all on Amazon, and all earning a very nice monthly income for myself. Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, it is much easier to become a published author and see your name on the front cover of a book!


The future is now self-publishing. People are abandoning traditional publishers in droves and going it alone. But there are so many things to remember, so many pitfalls and potholes to avoid! Ones that I didn’t initially avoid myself! It took a lot of trial and error, and a lot of money, but I got there in the end.


Wouldn’t it be a lot easier for you if I was “by your side” during the whole publishing process for you? Making sure you don’t fall into any traps? For an hourly fee of $199, I will help you get set up. 


I can’t guarantee you bestselling success – I can only set up the tools and advise you. The rest is up to you.

So what do you get for my money?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Fair question. I have been writing in one form or another for most of my life (I am 49 now). I have been a tech journalist for 20 years, and a fiction author since 2017. Since 2017, I have written and published 20 fiction novels (with many more on the way), and three of the German translations have hit the Amazon bestseller list.

No. No videos. What you get is my personal undivided attention. I will provide everything as PDF-formatted notes for you to refer to later.

No. Anyone who guarantees something is lying to you. All I can do is help you build the foundations and advise you on what to do. The rest is up to you. It’s a long-term process with a lot of hard work. You’ll fail before you succeed. You need to accept this before you begin.

Nope. No contracts, no minimum period. No deposit. When you don’t need me anymore, we end the consulting arrangement. No notice necessary.

All meetings will be pre-arranged video calls on either Zoom or Google Meet. I am also available on FaceTime and WhatsApp, but for the tutorials, we will need something with screen sharing capabilities.

YES. My hourly fee is my own personal fee. But when starting out, you will have to buy tools and online services, which you should consider as a long-term investment (tax-deductable too!). You also need to have a Facebook Ads budget and a website hosting plan.

This is absolutely impossible to predict. You will lose money on Facebook Ads before you don’t. Profits also depend on the quality of your book, reader reviews, your genre, and what marketing you do. Too many variables to make a prediction.

I am in Germany. The timezones will be a major consideration when planning when to meet up. But we will figure all that out.

I accept payments via . Using Stripe, you can pay by credit card, PayPal, Google Pay, Apple Pay, and many more. If you have an account with, I can accept payments there too.

Sure. For a monthly retainer fee of $249, I would be happy to do that for you.
