Course Description

As the artist/author Manafest I've sold over 300,000 albums worldwide over 1,000,000 singles and toured over 19 different countries.

I've raised over $20,000 for my first Book "Fighter 5 Keys To Conquering Fear & Reaching Your Dreams" which won the 2014 Beverly Hills Book Award and continues to sell thousands of copies.

After writing my first book so many doors opened to me from doing a radio show, podcast as well as speaking gigs. Writing a book will open more doors for you then a PHD.

Writing a book makes you an authority, can create passive income and build your platform quicker then anything else.

It's time to take action and get the book written.

It's not as hard as you think and this course will guide you step by step.

I have put this course together for you - to which you have full lifetime access, including all the updates, for free.

I "take you by the hand" and "behind the scenes" and show you everything, explaining it in simple detail with videos and written support lectures.

I'm going to teach you how I published my first Hard Cover Book


I read a lot of books and took some courses to inspire and educate myself on writing a book. Proud of you for investing in yourself by taking this course.

Section 2: Research Your Topic Or Niche First

I use the google keyword tool to see what topics/phrases people are searching for so I know what to write about in my book.


Amazon is the #1 place online for selling books and a great place to do research on your topic to see what else is selling in the marketplace.


Buy, read and study everything can about your subject that your going to write about. Listen to audiobooks, podcasts, read blog posts to fill yourself up.


Competition is good because it proves there is a market for your subject. People will buy more then book on a subject they want to learn. Remember your story and style is unique.


This lecture gives you some suggestions and ideas of how long your book should be.


Here is a list of the books I read and courses I took that helped me finish my book.


Make a list of at least 30 experiences, thoughts, ideas, stories, illustrations, techniques, and information that you can use in your book.

Section 3: Writing Your Book: Lets Do this!

I took action towards my dream of writing a book and bought .47 cents notepad.


Write out all your ideas and don't stop. Don't edit, don't over think it just dump every idea out and get it in writing. Edit it later.

My wife's website:


Photo or Illustrated.

Photo - It's proven people are less likely to throw it or rip it up if it's got your photo on it because it's more personal

Design - Eye Catchy and doesn't just blend in with the rest of the books.

People do judge a book by its cover.
