Grand opening of the Self-Publishing for Beginner’s School

Most of you know that I have self-published a number of books now. Through trial and error, I learned that it’s not an easy process. However, for me, the angst has been totally worth it. After all, my mom was able to read several of my books before she passed away last year. And this year, I sent print versions of the Animal Antics books to my dad, who enjoyed them immensely and wants to know when the third book will be out. So if no one else ever reads my books, at least my parents have enjoyed some of them. Had I waited for a traditional publishing contract, that may never have happened. After all, I write about topics that are far from mainstream.

Anyway, I penned three books to help would-be authors navigate the rough seas of self-publishing which you can find on Amazon (A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Publishing series). Now, I’m extending my offerings to include the Self-Publishing for Beginners School on Teachable. 

The introductory course is FREE. Is Self-Publishing For You? presents the types of publishing available and will help you determine whether self-publishing, traditional publishing, or hybrid publishing will meet your needs. 

The first course ready for enrollment is A Beginner’s Guide to Book Formatting, which deals with the bane of most authors’ existence. More courses will be rolling out on a regular basis over the course of the next year or so. 


So if you’re toying with the idea of self-publishing, then I invite you to check out the Self-Publishing for Beginners School!

40 Days to a Finished Book by Leonie Dawson

About a month ago, I signed up for the online course 40 Days to a Finished Book by Leonie Dawson. I was determined to get the next book in the Woman’s Survival Guide to Mexico series. As of today, I have finished writing 28 chapters. YEAH ME! I have about 20 more to write, give or take a dozen or so, but I feel like I can see the book coming together. 

So Leonie Dawson aims to keep your focus on the writing aspect of book production. She does this with daily inspiration and accountability. Periodically she offers group coaching calls for further motivation when the going gets tough. In all, this particular course has 123 lessons. Most can be done in less than 5 minutes, so it is far from overwhelming.

Honestly, I haven’t been able to complete my writing goal every single day. And that’s ok. I know that if I miss one day, I can start fresh again the following morning. The accountability aspect though means I’ve only missed 2 out of the 21 days I’ve completed towards the 40-day challenge so far. YEAH ME!

Normally this course is $199, but I got it as part of The Writer’s Toolkit from Ultimate Bundles. So for just $97, I have access to Leonie’s quirky motivation PLUS 38 more resources worth over $5,000. What a bargain!

If you have any inclination to get your book finished this year, then don’t delay in getting The Writer’s Toolkit and sign up for 40 Days to a Finished Book by Leonie Dawson. The bundle is only available until June 11. The only way you’ll be able to get Leonie’s course after that is by paying more than twice what you pay for the entire bundle. It’s a no-brainer here! Get your complete toolkit before it’s too late!
