As the top of the writing food chain, a well-written book has particular benefits that give it unique longevity and authority:
- People do not throw books away
- Books give you instant credibility
- Books provide warm tangible engagement
- Through your book, readers feel they know and understand you

His Excellency Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao
Services: writing and ghost writing, manuscript development, editing, proofreading, graphic design, publishing and distribution into retail markets.
If you are a political, corporate or community thought-leader, a speech or essay collection is a powerful tool to show your place in society.
A good book is the ultimate business card and requires passion and vision as much as expertise, ideas, and innovation. As the author, it is your passion and your unique vision that engages readers and potential clients.
Your book may serve many purposes, such as to help position you for the speaker’s circuit, to help differentiate you from your competitors, or to outline your vision for your company, your industry, or country.
Longueville has published collections of speeches for the Prime Minister of Timor-Leste for use during his election campaigns. Essays on the year in review for Dimensional Fund Advisors provide a long-standing record of trends in the international financial environment.

Business marketing through a book and eBook suite to showcase your expertise will increase your levels of client engagement and add long-lasting materials to your communications portfolio.
Books embody credibility and integrity and they provide warm tangible engagement that can be used to attract new clients or reinforce your services to existing clients. What’s more, they remain in circulation for decades and provide you with a rich source of B2C social media engagement.
We like to think of engagement through various forms of communication as similar to the process of meeting someone. Your advertisement is the attention-seeking shout ‘hello’, your brochures are the handshake, and your book is the dinner conversation over a glass of wine – and it is here that long-lasting engagement occurs.

We look forward to many more years of helping our clients deliver engaging communications and grow their businesses.
