Carla King and I want to help you become a successful author. In our NAMW coaching calls and discussions over the last few years, I’ve noticed that there is a great deal of confusion about how to publish your memoir —and that many of you are unfamiliar with all the steps to take to help you successfully get your memoir into the world.

Many of you comment that it’s a challenge to publish through the traditional-agented means—especially now that there are only four major publishing houses.

Publishing for Memoirists: The Steps You Need to Take to Successfully Publish Your Memoir in 2022

Coming soon!

Many authors believe that publishing your book independently is simply about getting your book designed, formatted, and uploaded to stores, so it’s no wonder the average self-published book sells only 200 copies. You can do better by following a proven process to find your community of readers and peers, to get your book into as many hands as possible, to build a platform, and to follow a launch plan.

Book Marketing Basics: How to Think About It and How to Do It and Stay Sane

Coming soon!

VALUABLE BONUSES include Carla’s Distribute Your Book online course, a $49 value.

Learn about the services that will get your ebook, print book, and audiobook out into the world. This course will prepare you for the formatting and design work you need to do to ready your book for distribution. It will get you thinking about book marketing strategies on launch day, taking advantage of the marketing programs some of the online retailers provide. For example, you’ll learn why so many authors use the exclusive Amazon KDP Select program to sell their ebook instead of “going wide” to all the ebook stores. You’ll learn about metadata, and exactly how many words and characters you are allowed to use in your book description and author bio. Book categories and keywords? BISAC codes? We’ll go there, too!
