Self-Publishing Boot Camps

Did another year go by without you getting that book finished and published?

Or maybe the book is written and you just do NOT know what to do next?

Have you started researching publishing options and found yourself completely overwhelmed?

You are not alone. There are many of us that are just dreaming about the book that we’re going to write and publish, but for some reason (maybe many reasons) – it has just not happened yet.

Over 80% of the world wants to write a book, but only about 5% or less actually do. Why is that? Especially with self-publishing being so “easy” for anyone to do now.

Well, the reality is, it’s NOT easy! There is a lot to know and do, beyond just writing the book.

Are your frustrated and overwhelmed?

Have you purchased one million training programs, courses, or tools to help you in this journey and just cannot get it all done?

I hear you! One of the benefits of participating in a LIVE program is that you will DO THE WORK as we are going through the program. I will hold you accountable, work through the content and deliverables WITH you, and ensure this is not just another program that you buy and never complete.

No way, Jose!

My Self-Publishing Boot Camps are designed to answer ALL of your self-publishing questions – teach you about self-publishing and all the pieces of the puzzle you are avoiding learning about. 🙂

You do NOT have to have written a book already – we’ll talk about strategies for getting started.

As a special bonus, anyone who signs up for the course will get the “From Idea to Outline” course so that you’re able to outline your draft to get started. And if your book is already written, I have some goodies for you too!

WHEN?

August 5-6, 2019 from 2pm – 4pm EST (NY) AND August 12-13 from 2-4pm.

Now that sounds like a crazy time commitment – I KNOW! But in reality, the time you need to be there will actually only be the first HOUR. So 2-3 each of those days. The block from 3-4 will be for 1:1 sessions, so each of you will have the opportunity to schedule your slots. If there is no way for you to make that work, I’ll work with you to fit in your 2 x 15min 1:1 sessions with me outside of that window. Or you can do 1 x 30 min session.

WHAT?

Learn ALL THE THINGS to publish your book professionally.

If you have already completed your book and it has gone through editing, by the time we wrap up on August 12th, you will have all elements you need to publish your book.

However, if you haven’t even started writing your book, don’t be afraid! This course is going to help you get everything organized so that you’ll be well on your way!

What are we going to cover?

You’re going to learn all the things you need to know to professionally produce a book that no one can tell is self-published and learn all about where/how you should be publishing.

When we’re done you’ll know and understand

  • The different routes to publishing – self, hybrid, and traditional publishing
  • Common misperceptions about publishing
  • How to find the partners you need to publish a professional book – editors, graphic designers, layout & ebook designers, etc
  • The ins and outs of all “elements” you need to publish – the ISBN, LCCN, PCN, PCIP, etc, etc…
  • What an imprint is and why you should have one
  • How to create a professional book – everything you need to know about interior files, cover designs, different formats of the book, ebooks – and if you don’t want to do these things on your own, I’ll introduce you to freelancers I trust to do it for you
  • How to avoid issues with publication
  • The resources and tools you need to publish your book well so that it can be FOUND; keywords, categories, and good sales copy!
  • Where to publish your book and HOW to get them live on retailers
  • Pre-orders
  • Basic marketing & launch strategy
  • Setting up Amazon ads and how they can help you boost sales
  • Competitive analysis for pricing and marketing
  • Prepping your book for libraries and bookstores

What is the investment?

The investment is $497. I will show you some massive time and money-saving steps that will help you in the long-run. I’m pretty certain you’ll walk away feeling this was the best $497 you ever spent! I have seen so many people post things in my free group like, “I just learned that I was supposed to have done {enter in any number of things here!} and I have to go back and do {whatever it is they are now having to re-do}!”  I’d like to help you from being THAT person.

I know $497 is a MASSIVE undertaking AND you might not be able to meet up live for 4 days during business hours. I get it. So for those of you that would just like to access the recordings after each training session, and bypass the live training, 1:1 sessions, and Q&A, I’m offering a special deal.

Get the recordings ONLY for a one-time payment of $97. As a bonus, you’ll also get my new training session, How to Get Your First 50 Reviews on Amazon as soon as it is ready!

Sound good?

But if you want the 1:1 coaching, the live training, the Q&A and all the other bonuses, keep reading!

This truly is the best investment (outside of a great cover and solid editing) that you will make in your book. You can either fall in with the “normal” self-published author and sell less than 100 books in the LIFETIME of the book, or you can get the training you need and sell 100 books in your first week…

FAQ:

Do I have to travel?

No! The course will be held on ZOOM – a fancy online conferencing solution – where we can engage and interact together. So you can sign up no matter where you live!

Do I have to attend all sessions live?

Only the first hour of each day will be actual teaching / learning sessions. If you can’t be there live, I will be recording the entire boot camp, and you’ll be able to return and watch the replays whenever you’d like. It works best for YOU if you come live… so you can answer questions and truly benefit from the program. But, if the time doesn’t work for you, I am happy to answer any of your questions if you send them to me after watching a replay.

Do I have to attend the full 2 hours each session?

Nope. I understand it’s a lot to ask you to block of EIGHT hours over 4 days. I’ve organized the program so that we start with a LEARNING component where I’ll teach you what you need to know, and the second hour will be for 1:1 coaching time and if we have open time, I can answer general questions and help with implementation.

Will I get 1:1 support?

During the the 2nd hour, I will open a 1:1 breakout room. Each person will have 2 x 15 min 1:1 coaching sessions during which we can dig into your project. If you feel like you are best suited for 1:1 support all the way rather than a group training environment, please schedule a 30-min consultation with me here.

I also limit the group to ONLY 8 people, so that I have enough time to engage with each participant. So, if you’re serious about moving forward, fill out the application now. It will be first-come, first-serve for those applicants that are a good fit for the program.

Why is it broken into 2 weeks?

Great question! For two reasons. One, I find it hard for people to block off 4 days in a row, but also because there will be some homework and I want you to have the time to get into the work and be able to come back with your questions. I find that a break with a weekend allows the opportunity to dig into the content and return a few days later with questions you might not have had with all four days in a row.

 

Bonuses!

Anyone who registers for the course also receives the following courses:

  • From Idea to Outline in 1-hour
  • My award-winning book, Ditch the Fear & Just Write It!
  • First to receive the new training coming in the Fall – How to Get Your First 50 Amazon Reviews!

Not sure yet?

This is an investment of both time and money, but I’m going to help you reduce the overwhelm, not have to learn all of this info on your own, and it will save you countless time and money in the long run.

I recently received an email from a woman who has been going it on her own… she asks questions in my free group and we all try to help her when we can. She had to postpone her launch because she made a critical error when publishing.

She’d done all the promo for her launch and then launch day came… and her book wasn’t ready.

These are the types of scenarios this Self-Publishing Boot Camp will ensure you avoid.

Most people don’t know what they don’t know until they get into the process. You can absolutely figure it out on your own.

It just depends on how much time and money you want to spend in the process.

OR… you can let me show you the route and save countless amounts of frustration, time, energy, and money.

My clients say:

I used Alexa to help me self-publish my book and I could not be happier with my experience. I hired her for a few coaching sessions to help me make an appropriate marketing and sales plan for my book. These sessions were extremely beneficial in helping me re-set my plan so that my book could sell. Once I implemented the changes she suggested, my sales quadrupled. She is extremely knowledgeable about all things book related. In addition to using her for coaching, I also hired her to finalize the interior layout for print publishing. My project was complicated and rushed. She hit all her deadlines as stated and BONUS POINTS…my print job was accepted in the first submission to KDP. Which is pretty much unheard of! Thank you Alexa for being a part of my “Big Project”. I am grateful for the role you played in it. – Shelly Longenecker, Author, Dinner for a Dollar

I need to move in with Alexa and follow her around for the next year to catch up on what I don’t know. This is what I have been looking for! ~ Jewel D. Williams, Tri Production Publishing

I’ve had one phone visit with Alexa and her knowledge of all the ins and outs of publishing and marketing are amazing! She’s the real deal! ~ Becky Cymbaluk

The wealth of knowledge and resources she reported to us as writers and authors. I stood amazed at her willingness to help and her big heart to share what she knew about writing, publishing, and selling. I will always be grateful for her commitment to writers in Write Publish Sell. ~ Ellamae Elder

 

One thing I can assure you is that you will have ALL the tools you need to self-publish your book confidently when you invest in this program!
