Self Publishing Course

Build a successful writing career today

  • Have you heard about self publishing, but not sure it’s your thing?
  • Does self publishing sound like too much hard work to you?
  • Have you self published and experienced poor sales, despite endless hours banging away at social media building a following?
  • Do you want to self publish, but are confused by the multitude of options and exhausted by the seemingly hundreds of steps needed to get a book to market?

I know how you feel. Not so long ago I was exactly where you are now. In fact, I've learned ALL successful independent authors have experienced some or all of these feelings at some stage in their career.

I will let you in on a secret: becoming a successful independent author is not hard. What’s hard is sorting through all the rubbish advice online and extracting what actually works for writers.

If you have the wherewithal to complete a major work, polish it and present it to the world, you have what it takes to be successful at self publishing.

This course has been created explicitly to help you filter out the noise, dump the stress and set up your self publishing business so you can concentrate on your writing.

About the Course

This course helps authors learn how to self publish their books so they can make a living from their writing.

The course is broken up into four modules:

  • In Module 1, I bust the four self publishing myths that are holding you back from building a successful career as an independent author
  • In Module 2, I teach you the 5 mindsets common to successful independent authors.
  • In Module 3, I tackle the most painful part of self publishing - book marketing. I show you how to filter out the bad advice and concentrate on what works for authors so you can concentrate on your writing. I teach you:
    • Your #1 marketing tool as a writer (HINT: you already own it)
    • The truth about social media marketing
    • How to increase the reach and effectiveness of your book marketing
    • How to automate much of the marketing process
  • And finally, in Module 4, I show you step by step, and in easy to understand language, how to set up your online indie publishing business. I teach you how to:
    • Publish your books on Amazon and other online bookstores
    • Create and manage your author website
    • Create a mailing list of your fans
    • Find help when you need it.

If you're an Australian author, I also have a bonus module for you with tips and trick for succeeding in an international market.
