3 words, Write, Edit, Publish

Do you recognise yourself in any of these scenarios?

·         You want to write a book, or maybe you already have, but are worried about navigating the self-publishing path alone.

·         You know how to self-publish, but expert advice would make the process a lot easier.

·         You’ve already self-published a book, but Amazon changes its rules so often you want to make sure your information is up to date.

Writing a book is only the first step in the process of becoming a published author. Before you can reap the benefits, you must first get your book out there, and if you’re reading this page you’re thinking of self-publishing.

Writing a book about it is just a matter of putting the words on paper. Maybe you’ve already done that. I can’t tell you how many writers I speak to who have at least one book finished (or mostly finished) sitting on their hard drives just…waiting.

What holds them back? Frankly, it’s simply not knowing where to start.

Writing is simple…publishing is difficult!

Clearing the Confusion Surrounding
the Self-Publishing Landscape

Look, we’ve all been there. You have a family, a job, a life outside of writing.

The last thing you need is to add a self-publishing learning curve to your task list.

But I know for a fact that if you don’t tackle this job, your book will forever sit on your hard drive gathering virtual dust, instead of…

Announcing your writing skills

Solidifying your unique voice

Adding your voice to your genre

Attracting a new audience

And most of all, it won’t help your ideal reader find a new favourite author!

See? You owe it to yourself to get your book out there and in the hands of your new readers. And that starts with….

The Path to Self-Publishing

There’s nothing magical about self-publishing. It doesn’t require a marketing degree or technical expertise. And unlike just a few years ago, it no longer requires a huge investment.

But it does require that you have a solid understanding of the various platforms, proper formatting for each, and a bit of a time investment. In my The Path to Self-Publishing course I’ve got all this and more covered for you, so all you must do is write that book  and get started!

Self-publishing isn’t a magical process. It doesn’t need a marketing degree or technical knowledge. And, unlike just a few years ago, it doesn’t need a significant investment.

However, it does need a solid understanding of the different platforms, proper formatting for each, and some time investment. All of this and more is covered in my “The Path to Self-Publishing,” so all you must do is finish a book and get started.

Write a book  that you’d want to read!
