Publish Your Book

The comprehensive path from finished manuscript to published author, and everything in between.

You already did the hardest part by completing your manuscript. While we may suggest some tweaks to fit your target audience, what you really need from us is our book production expertise: cover design, formatting, ISBNs, and even uploading and publishing your book.

Coaching

This is why we partner each aspiring author with a bestselling, experienced author as a personal coach to provide you with customized strategic support.

1-on-1 Coaching

Over 2 Million new books were published in 2022. Every single one of them is unique, and yours is no different. With 2 one-on-one coaching calls, our bestselling author coaches will help you tailor your book to reach your intended audience, uncover your hidden strengths and weaknesses, and hold you accountable to meet your goals. You’ll walk away with a well-written book, a plan to publish and market your bestseller, and everything you need to know to use it as a tool to build your brand, grow your business, or share an impactful message.

Group Coaching

Have you ever heard the saying, “a rising tide lifts all boats?” We believe this is what happens when a group of writers come together to talk through their wins and challenges. Our weekly laser group coaching sessions are held on Zoom with Chandler Bolt, founder and CEO of SelfPublishing.com, and Sean Sumner, community manager at Self-Publishing School. Gain clarity in real-time from those who have been exactly where you are.

Daily Coaching Office Hours

Sometimes, you need an answer ASAP in this industry. Your time is precious and this process can be unpredictable. This program is designed to give you the support you need quickly and easily, which is why we give you 12 months of unlimited daily coaching. These group coaching calls are scheduled between 10 and 15 times per week and are always live on Zoom with a bestselling author coach facilitating. You’re welcome to drop in and ask (or answer!) questions as they come up.

Book Production

Book cover, formatting, and ISBNs—oh my! We know how scary and confusing this phase of the book-publishing process is. That’s why we do it all for you.

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 students who come to us for help with self-publishing or marketing their existing self-published book. You’ll work with your coach and our design team 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.

Professional Formatting

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. Our professional design team will format your book for digital and print while ensuring your book’s look and feel is the highest quality, inside and out.

01  |  02  |  03  |  04

COMMUNITY

Our community is a vibrant group of bestselling authors and aspiring from more than 90 countries. Joining our community is a unique opportunity to tap into the collective wisdom of the group and network with other authors.

Exclusive Mastermind Community

For 12 months, you’ll have access to our private author mastermind community with direct access to more than 2,000 published authors. It’s a powerful resource for finding reliable writing partners, gathering helpful feedback on your cover or title, putting together a launch team, and getting book reviews. In a group like this, someone else has already been where you are, and they’re excited to help you through it if needed.

Writing Rooms

Our writing rooms give you the time, space, and accountability to WRITE. When you join the Zoom writing room, you’ll begin by setting your word count goal for the session along with everyone else. Then, you’ll mute yourself and get to work—with your camera either on or off. We’ll set the tone by playing relaxing music and then end the session by sharing our word counts with each other and even some wins or total progress.

Publishing

Alright, you’ve done it! You’ve finished writing your book, you’ve worked through book production, and now you’re ready to publish. Only 14 or so steps left to go. Wait, what? Don’t stress! We’ve got your publishing tasks covered.

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 handle the technical details by uploading your book directly (through your account), 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. Our team will analyze search volume, measure category competition, and help you optimize your book description for consistent sales.

Worldwide Book Distribution

We’ll set up worldwide distribution on your behalf and 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 management. 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.

Online Education Program

Even with your coach, community, and done-for-you book production and publishing services, we still want to teach you how to do these steps yourself, along with the strategies and methods to do them well. You’ll have full access to our online course platform to learn high level writing, marketing, and self-publishing. Author Advantage Accelerator members have lifetime access to this platform, which covers digital ads, social media, email list building, booking speaking engagements, and more.
