Do you endeavor to discover your inner-Hemingway, Seth Godin, Amy Sedaris, Tom Clancy, Anne Lamott, Cyndi Dale or Marianne Williamson, but also clarify your purpose, invigorate your spirit, and be inspired to express your individuality? Do you wish to share your writing with the world, for all to read?
While spoken words evaporate like mist, the written word is an opportunity to leave your mark, just like the ancient ones who left their etchings on the walls of the caves.
Writing is an act of the now gifting the ever after.
It's time to quiet the pervasive energy blocking gremlins like self-doubt, procrastination, fear, and confusion, which need no longer sabotage your dreams. Let me help guide you on your journey to owning your relationship with the written word and publishing—one that is uniquely ours.
I created Deeper Well Publishing, and it's new author services, so you don't have to take the journey alone. I am here to offer a one-on-one safe-haven to fellow writers for refining their work, gaining feedback, insight, inspiration, guidance, tips, tools, encouragement and much more by someone who knows what is to be a writer, with all its struggles and rewards and understands the world of publishing.
I have been a creative writer for years, having published songs, poetry, articles, written comedy and ad copy, and contributed to multiple books and magazines. Additionally, I have represented notable authors, such as Cyndi Dale and Gregg Braden as an agent, and also have developed and published books for Cyndi Dale, Rainbeau Mars, and others through my company Deeper Well Publishing.
So, if you want to mine your soul and awaken the quiet giant of creativity that has been lying dormant within you and share your shining writer's soul, then please let's explore how my team and I can help you manifest your dream of becoming an author. Or if you are already a writer, learn how to receive assistance, support, and production of your next project.
A note from bestselling author CYNDI DALE
Let me tell you a bit about Anthony. I have had the privilege of knowing, and working with him for over 20 years. Words that come to mind: Impeccability. Creativity. Integrity. Amazing skill.
Anthony has served in many capacities for my corporation over the last two decades, but the main title I would give him is helmsman. He truly pilots my company, its endeavors, and always toward success. I can't think of enough positive descriptors to describe his work and capabilities. I am the author of over twenty-five books, an international speaker, consultant, and A-level workaholic, and I have trusted him with my business in all capacities, a huge vote of confidence, as it is my life blood and passion.
As my business manager and career strategist, he has completely transformed my company Essential Energy from a fledgling business into a highly successful one. As my agent, he has negotiated books and other products that are authentic to myself and the other participants. As my media specialist, he has significantly increased awareness of my work amongst my target audiences. As the true leader of my business, he has also made sure that I live a balanced, happy life—for my most precious priorities are my children and time off for good behavior, once in a while.
And he rolls up his sleeves without compunction and makes sure that everything gets done. I am thrilled to recommend Anthony's work and finesse to anyone or any company seeking someone who can make a 100-plus percent difference—so that you can make a real difference in the world.
In addition to myself, some of Anthony's esteemed current and past clients include, Neale Donald Walsch, Gregg Braden, Dr. Margret Paul, Jimmy Twyman, Deanna Minich, PhD, Bill Harris and Rainbeau Mars to name a few, as as well as companies such as Penguin Publishing, Llewellyn Worldwide, Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids (DIFFA), Humanity's Team Leadership Gathering, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Multiple Sclerosis Society, Baby Genius, Inc., Cancervive, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, The Magic Castle, and Minneapolis Media Institute
Here is what some of his colleagues and clients have shared...
‘‘Anthony you’re an inspiration! Your attention to detail was extraordinary and deeply appreciated. I really enjoyed working with you. Call us anytime we fit in with your plans and we’ll try to make it happen. In the “field’’ of Show Business you are a beautiful flower.’’
Florence Henderson a.k.a. “Mrs. Brady” Actress/Author/Performer, former co-host of NBC’s Later Today F.H.B. Productions Inc.
"Anthony has the wondrous ability to paint big picture possibilities and root them in “let’s-get-the-job-done-strategies. His approach to product and business development is truly holistic—creative force, unwavering integrity, and results."
Danielle LaPorte, Author, The Fire Starter Sessions, The Desire Map
"Anthony, thank you for sharing your wisdom with me. You always set me up to look good... what vision and expertise you have. You are a Producer’s Producer. Thank you.”
Neale Donald Walsch, Author of the internationally renowned Conversations with GOD series and founder of Humanity’s Team
"Anthony, Thank you to for your care, attention, and stewardship. The guidance that you have provided to me has always made sense. We are grateful for everything that you have taught us and shared with us."
Rainbeau Mars, Author of the internationally renowned Conversations with GOD series and founder of Humanity’s Team
"Working with Anthony is a breath of fresh air. On a soul level, he deeply respects and honors the creative calling in all of us. He clearly values the higher good that comes from a creative vision manifested from a place of integrity, passion, and goodwill. Throughout the entire process he has been my trusted steward: guiding me through the decision-making, nurturing the larger vision, and discerning the wisest course of action to follow as the dream births into a beautiful reality. Thanks to his high level of commitment, well-rounded expertise, and genuine humility I have been able to relax into knowing that my project is in good hands, and surrounded by the good grace of positive energy.
Pollyanna Blanco, Author of In Rhythm With Your Soul, Dancer, Teacher
“You, Anthony, are an “expert.” But you knew that already, didn't you? Once again, thanks for your willingness to “show up” and for helping to open up all of our consciousness’. Be well! Peace.”
Joy Puckett Cain, Essence Magazine
“Anthony takes care of business, and is absolutely serious about what he does. His input has always been insightful, progressive, aggressive, thoughtful and artistic. A perfect blend for what the creative soul needs!
St. Paul a.ka. Paul Peterson, Singer/songwriter/recording artist/producer (solo artist, founding member of fdeluxe, and former member The Time
"Anthony understands my business. He has supported me through creating a "brand" in myself...(something some of the most popular coaches completely overlooked by lumping me in with their clients that sell "billy-wickets"). With Anthony's support, my visibility has increased significantly and my income exponentially. He is my secret weapon."
Gina Spriggs, Author, Tarologist
"It has not been the norm in my experience with the music biz to encounter a soul as deeply rooted in the "big picture,"as nurturing to the artist, as patient with the universal flow as is the soul of Anthony J.W. Benson. Whatever Anthony does, he brings full devotion, love, expertise, and immense joy. (Maybe it's all the soy chai lattes...) He has been very instrumental in helping to bring my career and entire artistic process to the next level. I consider myself lucky to call him a friend and colleague for life."
Holly Long, Singer, Songwriter, Recording Artist- City Girl, Every Little Seam, Leaving Kansas, Frequency, Antigravity (Bullyheart)
"Anthony provides an impeccable and valuable service to his clients in that he can help them clearly vision their business in a creative way. He is able to take them to the next level using his multi-layers of experience and vast expertise. He's wonderful to work with, as he is a high integrity individual who really cares about making a difference in peoples' lives."
Deanna Minich, PhD, FACN, CNS, Founder and CEO of Food & Spirit and author of four books on health and wellness
"Anthony is, first and foremost, a quality human being. Having had the privilege of working with him for many years, I've always been struck by his honesty, interpersonal communications acumen and genuine degree of caring for those he encounters. Beyond that, however, Anthony is a remarkably creative and intuitive marketer, who gets to the root of behavioral and market opportunities, and communicates the resulting value proposition concisely and with wisdom. In short, Anthony has accurate "gut feel" combined with eloquence, integrity and business smarts - a truly powerful combination."
Scott Kellner, VP of Marketing at George P. Johnso
‘‘The sign above his door should read: Anthony J.W. Benson Creativity Specialist. From his great eye for detail in design to his tremendous ability to get the job done on time and on budget, Anthony will have you covered—left and right brain. Above all, he is passionate about helping people realize their creative, personal and professional potential, and that passion is infectious. I’m grateful our paths have crossed in this lifetime.
Wendy Hammers, Actress, Comedienne, Writer, Playwright
"Anthony is an absolute pleasure to work with—professional, personable, supportive, perceptive, fair, and kind. From our first conversation, he built trust and made me feel comfortable and confident. He is open to suggestions and ideas, in addition to bringing his own; I respect his balance of openness and decisiveness, and he has shown good intuition about when to apply each. His encouragement, insight, humor, and breadth as a person all feed his ability to get people working in harmony. He knows how to pick the right people and get the best out of them. I've had great experiences working with him, and I look forward to a much longer journey together."
Nicholas Markos, Musician, Composer, Owner of Tie Records
"Anthony is like one of those pebbles you find at the beach—so multi-faceted and unique that when you add it to your other rocks, it elevates the whole collection! In a time of over-specialization, he's the rare talent who can see the whole picture, identify the over-arching goal, and put the steps in their proper order—all while being calm, supportive, and inspiring!
I especially appreciate Anthony's willingness to partner with me within my budget and in my half-formed state. Also, as a former marketing writer in Chicago who has worked with many writers and artists, I'm impressed by his ability to allow my creative process, rather than foist his own ideas on me. He really honors and understands every crucial step in bringing ideas to life. Get Anthony on your team. He's absolutely worth hanging on to!"
Tammy Letherer, Writer and Spirit Coach
I serve many of my clients, as a creative business strategist/dreams made manifest coach, project manager, art/creative director, consultant and communications/marketing specialist.

Whether you are an author, speaker, healing arts professional, musician, small business owner, or just beginning on your journey, personally or professionally, my role is to bring an objective and experienced mindset to our work.
I will advise, guide, execute and assist you in any way I can—by helping you solve existing challenges, and by helping you learn to work smarter not harder—ultimately leveraging all current and future opportunities available to you on your writer's quest.
During our time together, I will listen, assess, and assist you in shaping concepts and game plans, and, where appropriate, carefully shepherd you, your work, and products to all the necessary people, channels and opportunities via my extensive creative network of resources and team members. My goal is to help you build on what you have already successfully accomplished, create multiple options, and offer new insights that enable you to achieve what you desire for publishing your work.
Whether, it's a need for branding, platform building, marketing, advertising, promoting or product development—short term or long, I am eager to be a mentor, coach, champion, guide and valuable resource, personally and professionally, for you and your business, products or projects.
Writers Are A Courageous Lot
Writers are a courageous lot. Often embattled by confusion, distraction and persistent dissatisfaction, they fight through pain, sweat and tears, as well as the unforgiving blinding glare of the blank page, to bring their thoughts forth. As the internal war rages, they are capable of great victories, and great defeats. Yet, in the face of creative adversity those who choose to break free and follow the beacon of truth, emotion and passion have the indefensible power to emancipate themselves, and thus the reader, with their bravery and well-chosen words—a singular, yet shared, freedom of being truly beholden to no one, and nothing, except their soul that calls to them.
