Few authors in history can match Richard Paul Evans’ credentials. Evans is the author of 32 consecutive New York Times bestsellers with more than 30 million copies of his books in print worldwide. Five successful television movies have been made from his books. He is the winner of more than a dozen writing awards and is largely recognized as the most successful self-published author in history.

COACHING Richard has coached and helped to establish the careers of multiple New York Times bestselling authors including his own daughter, Jenna Evans Welch, whose first novel spent eight weeks on the New York Times bestseller’s list and is now published in more than fifteen countries.

Popular Radio Show host, Glenn Beck, consulted with Evans after his book The Christmas Sweater was initially rejected by the publisher. Evans’ “doctored” rendition of the work was not only published, but was a #1 New York Times bestseller with more than a million copies in print. The book was optioned by Paramount to be produced as a feature film.


“Richard Paul Evans may be the savviest book marketer in the world.
If he offers to share his secrets—pounce.”

– David Rosenthal
Former managing editor Rolling Stone Magazine,
Publisher Simon & Schuster, Villard and current
President of Harper Collins imprint: Blue Rider Press

“I’ve handled hundreds of authors in my career. Evans is the most strategic book promoter I’ve ever known. It’s no wonder he’s sold tens of millions of copies of his books. If you want to succeed in this business, you’d be a fool not to take his advice.”

– Laurie Liss
co-Owner Sterling Lord Literistic
