Publishing consulting covers all manner of services. It could include helping to set up your author accounts with Amazon KDP or IngramSpark. Other services could include getting feedback on your cover design or interior design/formatting, helping you decide your path to publication (self-publish, hybrid, or traditional) and the pros and cons of each, and other aspects of the publishing industry.
This service would also cover helping new publishers set up their business, navigate printing and distribution options, create workflows, and any other tasks (other than legal or tax issue, which require the appropriate professional) associated with the management of your publishing company. As someone who previously managed a traditional publisher through their conversion from a self-published POD model to a fully distributed traditional model, I have personally been through every step of those processes. I can connect you with top-quality vendors, as well as legal and tax professionals to guide you through those aspects of the business.

Query/Proposal Writing is for authors who would like to publish their book traditionally with an established publisher. This may require querying agents, or pitching a proposal to publishers directly.
Query Writing includes writing custom, tailored query letters to agents, and editing the book sample. This is the typical service for fiction authors.
Proposal Writing includes creating a proposal template for your nonfiction manuscript. A proposal includes several sections. This can be used to pitch your book to agents or to publishers directly (if they accept unsolicited manuscripts).
