ROBIN E. DEVONISH
Is a classic example of turning your frustration into a fully operational business. In 2007 when writing her book and self-publishing, she was uninformed and taken advantage of during her book publishing process. What was her response? Research, learn and teach others not to make the mistakes she did. What started as sharing new found knowledge turned into the demand to form a successful creative and coaching business for those who dreamt of being a self-published author.
With the balance of free and pay to play coaching, writing, and publishing choices, Robin provides honest education via various social media outlets to help aspiring and seasoned authors to navigate and own their space in the self-publishing world.
Since 2010, The Self-Publishing Maven has taught, trained, and published thousands of aspiring authors, nationally and internationally, from various walks of life. From doctors to subject matter experts, to entrepreneurs and advocates, as well as faith-based leaders, and the lists continue. Several who have worked with Robin have appeared on The Today Show, Dr. Oz, and The Word Network and featured in Essence Magazine, The New York Daily News as well as local and national news and radio stations.
Robin Devonish is a highly sought after speaker and event emcee. She’s been the choice of event planners for entertainment and speaking for more than 10 years. Known for her breath-taking storytelling skills, inspirational principles and the command of a room, Robin has been called to speak and share the stage with several well known headliners. As a writer, author, publishing maven, and cancer survivor, Robin’s journey has been both inspiring and impactful. She has emceed and entertained thousands along the way to come to this realization: It is less about how many people you have in the room and more about the lifelong influence and experience each event brings. She masterfully crafts her messages and stories, shares strategies for real life improvements while keeping everyone engaged and entertained.
What People are Saying
“Infectious, commanding, comforting, and powerful are the adjectives that come to mind to describe my experience with Robin “The Voice.” I had the pleasure of having Robin Emcee my conference which was hosted at a very turbulent time in our society. It was the week after the 2016 election, and I was torn between canceling the event in NYC or postponing for a later date. The climate of the city was thick and heavy. I was most sure people weren’t in the mood to be inspired and encouraged.
Robin affirmed me to continue the course as planned and she came through in a major way. Despite all the protests on 5th Avenue that deterred guests, trains, cabs we all arrived at a central place and Robin delivered. She organically shifted the mood with her resounding voice. She spoke a message of inspiration and hope that leveled the room. From there we were geared to resume Business As Usual. Robin Devonish is a speaker, a leader; she is the VOICE I look forward to hiring for future events.”
— Nichole Bailey, Founder of Bits Of Faith, Inc.

The Next Level Publishing Academy™
Navigating through writing, publishing, and profitability can be challenging when:
• Deciding which book to write
• Considering the best time to write it
• Researching the best self-publishing companies
• Learning what it takes to be profitable
• Seeing results that are consistent with your passion and vision
When writing and publishing a book, it’s a good thing to get clear, get perspective, and get support. Getting clear allows you to see where you are, and where you want to be — getting perspective on your thoughts and ideas, as well as, getting support so you won’t have to do it alone.
At The Next Level Publishing Academy™, our goal is to:
1. Assist you in creating a plan for where you want to be.
2. Uncover any challenges hindering or can hinder the success of your book.
3. Help you develop a blueprint of results to execute.
