“I did that whole process of shooting letters out to agents and publishers. And it was just like the most soul crushing thing. The price tag looks steep, but you’re going to be having access to a huge community of different authors. At SPS, we’re going to skip all the BS and go straight to the meat and potatoes. And if you’re actually dedicating yourself, putting the time into it, you’re going to be able to get pretty far.

WALDO RODRIGUEZ SANTIAGO

Fundamentals of Fiction, Full Time Fiction

Because I joined SPS, I now have an author career. I couldn’t say that before. For five years I tried and failed to sell more than a few hundred dollars in books a year. Now, I’m earning a part-time income that keeps growing with each book I release. I have direction and purpose as an author.”

BARBARA HARTZLER

Fundamentals of Fiction

Joining SPS ranks in the top five list of the best things I ever did in seventy years of life. And trust me, that is not because I’ve had a boring or non-productive life. If you have a story or a series of stories that you want to tell—that you need to tell—and if you want to tell the best story you can: join this program.”

JOHN HORNBECK

Fundamentals of Fiction

“I had published my first book all by myself, had no idea what I was doing. I thought, ‘Since my first book isn’t doing well, let’s see what this Self-Publishing School is all about.’ My biggest successes from publishing have been, my second book went to #1 in its category right away, I got a lot of reviews and my sales were respectable, and just being a published author has opened so many doors for me. I’m in some local book stores now and I’ve talked to some librarians and they want me to speak at their schools!

TASCHE LAINE

Fundamentals of Fiction

“I was a bit into the book process when I joined SPS. I wanted to take the steps to ensure that I produced the best quality children’s book that I could. I felt that education and mentorship of those who have gone before me would be necessary in order to accomplish a children’s book worthy of being on a family’s bookshelf.

“I started to write a book six or seven years ago and it just sat in my drawer. I didn’t know what to do with it or how to publish it, and then I discovered Self-Publishing School. With Whispering Pines, I published it in September of 2017 and as of September 2019, I have hit 10,000 units sold.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Do you help me even if my book is already written?
Yes! If you haven’t even started or have the book already written, we here at Self-Publishing School have a program for your next steps toward success—no matter your goals!
Q2: Are you a publishing house or will you publish the book on Amazon for me?
No, and this is the best part! We fully teach you how to write, market, and publish your book all by yourself in a step-by-step, repeatable process that empowers you to take control, self-publish for more royalties, and enables you to publish more books with life-time access to our materials.
Q3: How long does it take to be able to write fiction full-time?
Building a full-time fiction career is a long-term game, though we’ve managed to cut down this process significantly from that of traditional publishing. The length of time entirely depends on the author’s time spent, dedication, and how diligently they follow our step-by-step programs.
Q4: Can I still get traditionally published if I self-publish my book now?
Yes! In fact, having success self-publishing your fiction books can make it even easier for you to get an agent and a book deal. Proving your writing, your stories, and your platform increases the likelihood that those you query will pay attention to you. Now, more than ever before, agents and publishing houses are looking toward your platform, book sales, and email list size as indicators of whether or not they want to work with you.
Authors like Margaret Atwood (Handmaid’s Tale), Andy Weir (The Martian), and E.L. James (Fifty Shades of Grey) all started by self-publishing.
Q5: Do I have to book a call in order to get started?
Yes! Part of our enrollment process includes a 1-hour call with a Publishing Success Strategist to ensure you’re a good fit for us, we’re a good fit for you, and to get you started in the right program and with the right coach to fit your needs.
You can start by scheduling your call right here.
Q6: Do you offer payment plans for your programs?
Yes. Our payment plans are listed alongside the pay-in-full pricing.
Q7: Do you take royalties from my published book?
Absolutely not. We are an online education company, not a publisher, which means you keep 100% of the profits you make from your book royalties, unlike traditionally published authors making sometimes less than 10% of their book’s earnings.
Q8: How long do I have access to the program for?
For life! You’ll maintain your login and access to the online program portion forever.
Q9: What is “group coaching”?
Our group coaching calls happen daily, and you’re free to join whichever call makes sense with the stage you’re in. These allow for our authors to mingle, ask questions and get answers, learn from one another, and make progress together, fully guided by one of our own coaches.
Q10: What types of books do you teach us to publish (paperback, audiobooks, genres)?
We teach you how to create and self-publish all types of books (even hardback). This includes ebook, Kindle, paperback, children’s books, and the entire audiobook production and publishing process as well.
Q11: Do you ONLY help write and publish a book?
Nope! Here at Self-Publishing School, we can help you write and publish a book successfully AND continue your success Beyond The Book, no matter your goals. We have programs to help you gain promotion for your book via PR and Speaking, sell more books on Amazon through advanced marketing tactics, and even help you build and launch an online course that’s connected to your book and mission.
Q12: Do you edit the book and design the cover for me?
No. Book production costs are not included in the program costs. However, we do provide a rolodex of trusted, high quality, SPS-Approved editors, designers, and more for you to choose from with exclusive Self-Publishing School Author discounts, cutting down on the time, cost, and increasing quality of the final product.
Q13: How soon can I start?
If there is a time available for your 1-hour strategy call today, you can start as soon as today! Ultimately, you can start the very same day you decide to join Self-Publishing School with immediate program login access.
Q14: Why should I choose to work with SPS instead of a publisher or another Self Publishing Company?
