We've got everything you need

Comparison-itis, gaps in knowledge, distractions, and the feeling of being overwhelmed - we all face them from time to time. No wonder that so many authors find it challenging to achieve their goals without the proper support and resources! Making a living from your writing is never a straightforward road, and success is never guaranteed. Unless you have support and a community behind you...

"Philip has truly helped me simplify my authorship journey. If it weren’t for him, I’d still be sitting on my hands all frazzled by a lot of the thing's authors are required to do to be successful. Having someone who’s been there before me means I can pursue my dreams of becoming a full-time published author!

Sci-fi author

If you are a writer, like me, who has no idea how to launch or promote your book, then Brian is a great asset to have on your team. Discovering Brian has been amazing. Without his guidance and advice I would not have progressed at all. His insight and analysis of marketing and the advertising maze has been invaluable. Thoroughly recommended!

Creator of Fiction Marketing Academy, co-founder and CEO of BookAds

Ciao, my name is Brian Berni

I've been interested in books all my life. I am a former researcher and Latin translator at the Vatican Secret Archives (2008-2013). In 2013, an unexpected twist led me to the realm of self-publishing. Since then, I've become obsessed with book marketing and in 2015, I co-founded BookAds, an agency that helps authors with paid advertising. 

At Fiction Marketing Academy, our goal is to provide you with actionable, up-to-date strategies to boost sales of your novel(s). Whether you're a seasoned author or penning your first book, we've got insights tailored for you.

Ready to dive deep? I'm here to guide you.

Bestselling author, summit host and email-marketing coach.

Hey, I'm Philip Duncan, award-winning and bestselling fiction author.
I’m a middle child, southern-raised, and yes, I actually quit my job to live the dream—or write it, to be exact. Moved my wife and two mini-mes into my mom's to launch my author-boosting empire. Think "The Office," but with fewer staplers in Jell-O.

Turned my "can-this-even-be-a-job?" love for writing into a full-fledged business. Through summits and one-on-one coaching, I've been the wind beneath hundreds of authors' wings, expanding their reader lists faster than you can say "Schrute Farms."

Seven years married, two future bestselling kids, and countless episodes of "The Office" later, I'm here to help you market your way to the top. Because not all heroes use a pen—but this one does.
