Course Description

How Would You Like to Become a Bestselling Author and Watch Your Passive Income Grow Each Month?

The cool thing about publishing books on Amazon, Nook, iBooks and the other platforms is that you only do the work ONCE!

As a bestselling author myself, I know the huge power of self publishing books. In late 2012, I decided to try my hand at writing and publishing books on Amazon Kindle. I quickly built a fan base under one of my fiction pen names, and that pen name provides a large portion of my monthly income to this day.

But, here's the thing. You MUST get advice and training from someone who does this business every single day. Don't try to learn from wannabes or those who teach because they cannot DO.

Every day, I write. I publish a book every 2-4 weeks. I edit, proofread, run my ghostwriting team. I interact and engage with my 9,000+ Facebook fans and the thousands of readers on my mailing list. I do everything I teach you in this course.

If you want to learn from someone who does, click to sign up for this course! I will be adding more to it over time, and I will be there in our private discussion area daily answering your questions and helping you in any way I can.

Here is just some of what you'll learn:

  • Why self publish in the first place?
  • What genre to choose
  • How to research money-making genres/topics
  • How to outline for fiction and non-fiction
  • Formatting basics
  • Covers
  • Marketing and Promotion
  • And much more!

When all is said and done, you will be ready to publish your first book!

  • Microsoft Word or other writing software
  • Internet connection

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Write books that readers get excited to download
  • Build a raving fanbase

Instructor Biography

Charity Cason, Home Business Expert, Bestselling Author & Online Trainer

I love to help people make more money and change their lives!

As a trained Journalist, Bestselling Author and Online Business trainer, my job everyday is to help people change their lives and their businesses by harnessing the immense power of the Internet to their advantage.

Whether it's learning to self publish your own books or learning how to become a successful Facebook marketer, my goal is to present quality courses that are easy to understand and, more importantly, easy to implement quickly!

Learn from someone who DOES what she teaches!

That's right! Everything I teach about, I actually do in my own businesses. Yes, I said businesses, as in plural. I run multiple businesses with my husband from home, and we have done that for many years.

My businesses include things like running a busy ghostwriting team, writing and publishing bestselling fiction and non-fiction books under a variety of pen names, selling on eBay, selling on Amazon and much more.

I believe in multiple streams of income!

My gift from God is the ability to learn new things that can make people real money and being able to easily explain those tactics to just about anyone.

My desire is for you to have all of your dreams of abundance come true, and that starts with understanding all of the ways to make money online the right way.

So, who am I?

My background is as varied as my businesses! Here's a taste...

  • Degree in Broadcast Journalism

  • Worked at CNN World Report

  • Online TV Reporter/Anchor for TV show "Lawmakers" on Georgia Public Television, covering the legislative session in Atlanta

  • Newspaper Reporter

  • AM Radio show host

I've always loved telling the story and getting information to people quickly and accurately.

After leaving the Journalism field, I went into real estate for 15 years. During that time, I was a multi-million dollar producing agent, becoming the top listing agent in my office time and time again. I spent 5 years as a corporate real estate broker where I managed over 2,500 agents and taught real estate classes to hundreds of students.

When I left the real estate field, I decided to expand my home businesses, and that is where I am today!

In the last several years, I've written thousands of articles for private business clients, as well as countless books to help build client credibility. In addition, I've written multiple bestselling fiction books under two pen names that has resulted in well over 100,000 books sold since 2012.

My social media base for my pen names is over 10,000 fans, and I've now published close to 30 books, many with bestseller status.

I've created countless info products that have sold well to business people all over the globe, and my private Facebook mastermind groups have been a popular addition to my business as well.

As you can see, I'm well versed on teaching people to create multiple streams of passive income, and I want to teach you too!
