Self-Publishing 101

Self-Publishing 101 - the Mechanics

How to Self-Publish a Book

This is a course designed for the person who wants to do most of the work of creating and publishing their book on their own. It is a beginner to the intermediate level course - perfect for the first time author or maybe 2nd time author who realizes they missed some steps the first time around. It's okay - publishing is a big, big, big world, and after years and years, I am STILL learning. So be kind to yourself!

This course is self-paced and self-guided. You may leave comments or send me emails with questions at, which we will answer as we can. But if you find yourself need a lot of support and guidance, I would strongly encourage you to book a consulting call with me, where we can get into the details.

Note: I will teach you all the basic concepts for Self-Publishing - when, where, and how. I cannot guarantee the success of your book and strongly encourage you to invest in author platform building and marketing tools as well. I do guarantee that you will know exactly how to get your book self-published by the time this course ends.

What will we cover? 

This is a mini-course. So I'm not going to teach you everything in the world about self-publishing. If that's what you are looking for, I do have that option. If you want to be taught everything I know about Self-Publishing, check out the Success Publishing Academy - a six-month program with coaching.

Included in this mini-course:

  • The tools and resources so that you know the timeline, process, and places to self-publish your book
  • Connections with other freelancers who can help you with the production of your book
  • Basic distribution & book launch

By the end of this course you will:

  • Understand the timeline for self-publishing
  • Have a good understanding of all of the key elements for having a professionally self-published book and how to make those things happen
  • Have knowledge of the places you should be publishing your book
  • Have a Rolodex of places to go for professional support in the preparation and publication of your book
