Hi. I’m Michael Doane (you can call me Mike). I write fiction, teach authors marketing, and help businesses connect with customers. On this site, I share tips, book recommendations, and general advice on creativity and strategy.

More than anything, I believe in the power of story. We all have a story to tell, and when we finally tell that story, amazing things begin to happen. Story can drive ordinary people to extraordinary actions.

Whether it’s a book that’s dying to come out, a product or service that will make peoples’ lives easier, or a creative enterprise that will change the way people think about the world, I want to help you tell your story and bring your ideas to life.
