CRYSTALIZE YOUR IDEA
You will go from a rough idea for a book to a crystalized vision for your content that impacts the lives of your readers and helps you accomplish your end goals for the book.
Initial Coaching Call with a Bestselling Author
In order to accomplish the goals you have for this project, we kick things off with a 1 on 1 coaching call to ensure you have clarity on your ideal reader, clear message of your book, and ultimately where you hope your book will lead you. From there, you will dive into the world's leading online training for authors. You'll walk away with everything you need to know to use it as a tool to build your brand, grow your business, or share an impactful message.
Creating Your Mind Map
Once your idea has been solidified and your goals mapped out, it is time to get all of your ideas out of your head and onto paper. We help authors brainstorm everything that belongs in their book: personal stories, research, quotes, action steps and more. A great book starts requires a combination of elements to make it really stand out from the competitive landscape. We will help you get organized in advance to help you reach your goals.
Building Your Outline
Once you have all of your big picture ideas on paper, it is time to craft your bestselling outline. Most authors make the mistake of just getting started writing, and skip this crucial step of defining the order of their content in advance. We will walk you through how to create a strong outline that takes your readers on a journey and helps you get your draft written faster without the dreaded writers block.

Writing Like the Pros
Our training will walk you step by step through your rough draft to ensure you end with a manuscript you can be proud of when you send it off to the editor. You will learn writing tips from a whole host of bestselling authors, how to have a great chapter structure, what transitions look like that keep the reader engaged to the very end of your book, and more.

We have assembled an entire rolodex of top tier cover designers, book formatters, and editors to ensure your book is beautiful, inside and out. We have also negotiated deep discounts for our authors, meaning you will be getting the best services at a fraction of the cost.
Book Cover Design
You've been lied to all these years. The truth is: yes, people do judge a book by its cover. We’ve seen this again and again with the thousands of authors who come to us for help with self-publishing or marketing their existing self-published book. You’ll work with your cover designer to create a cover that not only attracts your ideal reader, but one that is created based on genre research so your sales last beyond your book launch.
Formatting is the final stage in the book-production process and having a well-formatted book is critical to becoming a bestselling author! The experience a person has while reading your book and how it looks is just as important as your book's cover. Your professional formatter will format your book for digital and print while ensuring your book’s look and feel is the highest quality, inside and out.

The beauty of selfpublishing.com is that you get the benefits of traditional publishing, without the strings attached. By connecting you with top tier designers and teaching you the publishing, you end with a high quality book, while maintaining 100% of the rights, royalties, and creative freedom.
Uploading to Amazon
The Amazon publishing process can be confusing, with the technical aspects shifting as the company updates their websites and processes. This is why we’ll walk you step by step through the technical details by uploading your book directly, ensuring it gets approved, and the listing is completely accurate. The best part? You keep 100% of your rights and royalties. You also retain full ownership and control over your content, pricing, and marketing strategies.
Categories, Keywords, & Book Description
There are 7,500 new Kindle books published every day, which makes choosing the right categories and keywords the best way to give your book a fighting chance of being noticed (and purchased!) by your ideal readers. We teach you exactly how to utilize software to analyze search volume, measure category competition, and help you optimize your book description for consistent sales.
Worldwide Book Distribution
We’ll teach you exactly how to set up worldwide distribution to ensure your book is available through Amazon’s KDP platform and everywhere Amazon sells. This includes ebook distribution and Amazon’s print-on-demand feature, which doesn’t require you to manage fulfillment or inventory. Someone buys and Amazon prints and ships it. All you'll need to do is check your daily “books sold” amount as it continues to increase.

book Launch & marketing plan
Successful book marketing starts with a great book. After that your goal is to get it into the hands of your ideal readers. We’re cutting through the clutter to help equip you with what are the most important tools and tactics to market your book successfully.
Building Your Launch Team
The first 30 days after the launch of your book are absolutely critical. This is where you have the opportunity to show Amazon that your book is relevant so that it continues to show your book to more shoppers over time. It is also where you have the best opportunity to become a #1 Bestseller, building authority and credibility, and allowing you to leverage this early success into long term sustainable sales. We will walk you through every step of building an amazing launch team to make this goal a reality.
Book Promotion Websites
Along with your launch team, partnering with book promotion websites is a powerful way to market your book to your ideal readers, but in an ever-growing industry like ours, finding the right ones can be challenging! We have combed through and tested over 100 book promotion sites and curated a list of the top converting sites we have found over the course of helping publish 7,000 books. These book promotions will go a long way towards helping you reach your audience beyond your natural sphere of influence.
