publish a book that sells?

How one first-time author wrote and published a book that
sold 15,000 copies, gathered 1,796 reviews, and continues to sell more every year than the previous year, without experience, connections, or a social media following. (Plus, what agents and publishers don't want you to know about surprisingly successful books!)

PLUS, when you sign up with your phone number, we'll send you the most popular keywords that readers are *actually* searching bookstores for, right now. Simply sign up with your cell phone number here for secret text thread access!

WHAT WE'RE COVERING IN THIS TRAINING:

  • A case study: how a first-time author sold 15,000 copies, gathered 1,796 reviews, and continues to sell more every year than the previous year, without experience, connections, or a social media following.
  • The 5 mistakes most authors make that you’ll need to know before you publish your first or next book.
  • The secret that agents and publishers don't want you to know about surprisingly successful books.
  • A time-sensitive opportunity to work directly with me and my team on your book, if we both feel like we’re a good fit (and I’ll be offering an exclusive bonus for ya’ll who are on live with me).
  • And much, much more!
If you're wondering what's changed in book sales and bookstores and what that now means for 2024, you're going to want to join us. This workshop is for YOU if...


  • You see the changes in the publishing world, and you want to make sure you’re up-to-speed on what’s really working now. 

  • You have an idea for a book, but you aren’t sure whether it’s the “right” book.

  • You’ve have a first draft (or even a finished manuscript), and you’re trying to figure out next steps.

  • You’ve published before, and you want to massively increase your results on your next book.
  • You’ve never published anything before, and you’re a complete beginner.
This is information that NO ONE else is sharing in the publishing world, and I believe that this strategy is going to be what separates the next generation of successful authors from the would-be authors who never seem to catch a break.

WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR?

Authors who want to write award-winning books and get their books in front of thousands of new readers, even if they have no list, no following, and no connections in the publishing industry.
