If you want to attract high-paying clients with books and speeches, a few seats are available at our upcoming private Marketing With a Book and Speech Summit in Las Vegas. This is mainly designed for consultants, professionals, and experts. Your host, Henry DeVries, is a best-selling author who educates people that the book is the starting line, not the finish line.

There is no cost to attend this private event. There will be no selling of services.

No cost. No selling. No kidding.

Greetings From Henry

Indie Books-IMG_7289-Final-2016-SquareHello, my name is Henry DeVries, and I have the honor of leading this session. 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 November of 2012, 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 also 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 also president of Indie Books International, marketing faculty and assistant dean of continuing education at the University of California, San Diego, and founder of the New Client Marketing Institute.

In the past I have charged $795 for a weekend version of this summit. There are only seats for a limited number of guests. In the past these events have filled up and we have had a waiting list. Just sayin’.

We have a lot of consultants, speakers and authors on our list. So please don’t delay because when the few seats are claimed, the opportunity to attend is lost.

I hope to see you at the summit.


Henry DeVries

No cost. No selling. No kidding.
