Amanda Hocking. John Locke. E.L. James. All ordinary folks. Banking SERIOUS self-publishing coin.
All because The Digital Revolution has levelled the playing field for artists of all disciplines. Now you can record a studio quality CD in your bedroom. Write and upload a novel from your computer! Incredible, wouldn't you agree?
But as incredible as the digital revolution is, it only gives you ACCESS to the game. It doesn't increase your chances of WINNING the game. Only KNOWLEDGE can do that. Knowledge of your market, it's trends, it's procedures. Knowledge of your competitors,their U.S.P., their marketing methods, etc.
In a sentence: the digital revolution gives you an opportunity, NOT an advantage.
Your advantage - is KNOWLEDGE. And that's what this course will give you.
Knowledge of every aspect of the business of self-publishing. And make no mistake - it is A BUSINESS. Which requires an investment of time,energy and, yes, money.
If you're a writer who wants to become a SUCCESSFUL self-published Author, or a published Author who's in "sales limbo", the knowledge in this course will give you the advantage you need to make the most of the digital self-publishing opportunity.
There is no filler here. No fluff. Every fact is a proven one. Every evaluation comes from my years of experience as a Literary Agent, “Book Doctor." and Publisher.
Equally, you'll find no - what I call - "phony inspiration" here. No -"You can be the next ebook millionaire if you believe in yourself, chant my 'success affirmations' and follow my 10 step ninja success videos.”
My goal is to inspire you with KNOWLEDGE. And have you transform that knowledge into ACTION! Because without it, knowledge has no value.
Knowledge IS power. This course IS knowledge.
I look forward to helping you achieve your Literary goals.
In this short intro video I explain exactly what this course is going to do for you.

While there are no shortage of distribution options for self-publishers, there are, as in every business - "The Players."
The "movers and shakers" who set the tone, style and pace for everyone else. I present and explain the pros and cons of the three main self-publishing "players" here.
