If you don’t mind, I’d like to use this week’s blog post to brag about two of my recent author clients.
As a book marketing consultant, nothing makes me happier than seeing authors achieve their dreams.
You probably know that I’ve helped multiple authors hit The New York Times bestseller list, including fiction and nonfiction. Within the last 30 days, however, two special results occurred that I want to share with you.
First, I had the pleasure to coach Kumiko Love in 2021, who is known as “The Budget Mom.” Years ago, Kumiko was a single mother struggling to pay her bills and raise her young son. But, she turned her life around, paid off over $77,000 of debt within 8 months, and became an Accredited Financial Counselor who now leads an online community of over 500,000 women to find financial and personal peace.
Kumiko wanted to reach an even bigger audience with her uplifting message, so she wrote her first book titled, My Money, My Way, which was traditionally-published by Penguin Random House.
Before her book launch, Kumiko went through my Book Marketing Master Class to learn how to build an effective pre-order campaign, create marketing partnerships, and put together a dynamic launch team.
Kumiko’s efforts were so successful that she hit The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists in February. Way to go, Kumiko!
Becoming a Wall Street Journal bestseller is one of the highest honors that a financial author can achieve. Kumiko is now a bestselling author for the rest of her life. Here’s what she said about going through my Book Marketing Master Class:
“Rob Eagar helped remove confusion about the bestseller lists, alleviated the stress that I felt, and prepared me for a successful book launch.”

If Kumiko’s story doesn’t get you excited, here’s how a self-published author’s dream recently came true.
Last month, one of my Canadian author clients, Tim Arnold, released a new leadership book entitled, Lead With AND. Within three weeks after publishing, Tim’s book broke the #5,000 Sales Ranking barrier in the Amazon US store, claimed #1 in three different book categories, and broke the Top 100 overall in Amazon Canada store!
New York Times bestselling author, Donald Miller, praised Tim’s new book by saying:
“Lead With AND will help you realize why managing tension by embracing both/and thinking is the one skill every leader needs to succeed.”
How did Tim achieve such success in the ultra-competitive genre of leadership business books, especially as a self-published author? Just like Kumiko, he wrote a fantastic resource, invested in his personal growth, and hired a marketing sherpa to lead the way.
Helping authors achieve their dreams is the reason why I founded my consulting practice over 15 years ago. Watching my clients attain success brings immense satisfaction.
