Greetings from Henry

Hello—It has been my honor to host more than 80 Marketing With a Book and Speech Summits around the country. To give more people access I am now doing a monthly one-hour video version on Zoom.

My name is Henry DeVries and I run a company called Indie Books International. I work with consultants who want to attract high-paying clients by marketing with a book and speech. 

In fact, as a ghostwriter and editor for consultants, I have worked on over 300 book projects in the past decade. My proposals have earned five-figure advances for clients. My best-selling book, How to Close a Deal Like Warren Buffett, co-authored with Vistage speaker Tom Searcy and published by McGraw-Hill in January 2013, won multiple Best Business Book of the Year awards and achieved numerous Amazon #1 Best Seller Rankings, including:

#1 in Books > Business & Investing > Management & Leadership > Negotiating

#1 in Books > Business & Investing > Skills

#1 in Books > Business & Investing > Small Business & Entrepreneurship > Entrepreneurship

#1 in Books > Business & Investing > Marketing & Sales > Sales & Selling

I have published with the top five publishers, privately published, independently published and association published, and personally know the dos and don’ts of all current publishing options. I have relationships with some of the most respected agents in the business and have launched and supported columns in,, metro daily newspapers and CBS MoneyWatch, helping clients to gain credibility, free publicity and larger reach.

I am paid to write seven columns a month for

As a result of working with me, consultants report they get more impact and more influence. The measurable ROI has been 400% to 2,000% (see some of the testimonials below).

On a personal note, I am a baseball nut. I have visited 43 major league baseball parks and I have one to go before I touch ‘em all.

I hope to see you at a summit on the second Tuesday of the month.

What Others Say About Our Work:

With Henry’s expertise and guidance, I set myself apart from the competition and built a multi-million-dollar consulting firm.”

Tom Searcy
Founder of Hunt Big Sales and co-author of Whale Hunting

“With Indie Books help I have made more than $280,000 a year as an author, speaker and consultant. For over 20 years I wanted to write a book, but it was more of a wish than anything because I didn’t know where or how to start. I had so many ideas yet no clear topic or process to get any traction. I met Henry DeVries and that quickly changed. In a matter of a few conversations the book title and strategy took shape and my objectives were clear. Henry not only made it simple for me to write and publish my book, he gave me clear definition of my brand and message.”

Penny Reed
Author of Growing Your Dental Business

“After my book Always Forward was published my standard keynote fee became $15,000. Henry distills his vast knowledge in marketing through hands-on, straight forward, easy to understand lessons that can be applied to generate results. Working with Henry has been an enjoyable and profitable experience–it is an experience that yields distinct advantages for me as I move my value proposition always forward. Henry has paved the way and designed the plan that has resulted in my first book.”
