I’m guessing you love a good story. And you’ve written one (or many!) that you just have to put out into the world. You are committed to making it happen. And you’re ready for readers across the country to fall in love with your book.

I’m right here with you! That’s why I created “Think Beyond the Book: Successful Marketing for Aspiring and Self-Published Authors”. Through this dynamic course you will learn strategies for enhancing your online presence, confidently enjoying the marketing process, securing local and national promotional opportunities, and reaching new audiences of engaged readers. How does that sound?

My Story

When I self-published my first book, I secretly hoped that someone other than my friends and family would read it. When I received my first order from someone I didn’t know I did a legitimate happy dance.

And then suddenly within my first 3 months I had done $10,000 in book sales WITHOUT being on Amazon or using paid advertising. Three months after that I had booked over 35 promotional events, most of which I completed from my dining room table. And I was being hired by authors around the country to help them enhance their online presence.

And now that I am working on my fourth self-published book I want to help you do the same! So here are the details.

Think Beyond the Book:

Successful Marketing for Aspiring and Self Published Authors

This online, self-paced course is designed to help you achieve your self-publishing dreams. I’m going to share with you my 5 Opportunities for Content that Connects, show you proven strategies for engaging new readers, and provide all my successful tips on booking local and national events to promote your work.

Imagine what it would feel like to have readers around the country fall in love with your book… As a result of this course you will:

  • Set up your social media accounts to look amazing and really work in your favor

  • Create 6 months of engaging online content that connects with readers

  • Identify creative “beyond the book” opportunities to increase sales

  • Create a plan to schedule 3 promotional events in 3 months (even if you aren’t yet published!)
