PROGRAM

Full Time Fiction

Even telling someone in your life that you want to write fiction full-time can be harrowing, with sideways glances and mumbled, “oh, interesting”s as you gush about this dream of yours that, because of people like that, often ends up only being a dream…

But there’s another way. Now, more than ever before, it’s possible to build a full-time career writing and publishing fiction. We no longer have to abide by “traditional” gatekeepers telling us our books don’t belong.

We can do it all ourselves—with the right process.

Here at Self-Publishing School, our Full-Time Fiction program lives up to its name by providing you with a complete online curriculum, 1-on-1 and group coaching, and the marketing tools and systems you need to go from just published author to full-time author.

It’s time to live into your dream, and understand that writing fiction full-time is no longer a “starving artist’s” pipe dream, but a legitimate career option. You just have to learn how to do it and dedicate the time necessary to build your fiction empire.

If you did not up for the Advanced Fiction program, I urge you to consider it when the time is right for you. So many bits of pieces of wisdom that RE Vance has shared over all the calls – AND MORE – are pulled together in a great course. The videos are concise, well-organized. There are .pdf transcripts for those of us who sometimes need to “see” the text rather than hear the words. Very helpful.  I am behind, so this is just a statement about the bit I have been through. If you are looking for gold, here it is!

Probably six months and then six months to publish.

Biggest benefit of working with us:
A feel that part of my soul has been satisfied by giving of myself to others, even if it is only through entertainment.

I have a community of fellow authors with whom to share the joys and challenges of this path.

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, we do! Your publishing strategist can discuss payment plan options during your strategy call.
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.

Self-Publishing School was created to give YOU, the author, control. We teach you how to accomplish this dream with 1-on-1 guidance, group accountability, and more, so you can feel empowered to write, market, and publish a book as many times as you want with lifetime access to the program.
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?
Self-Publishing School is dedicated to giving you the tools to create real change for yourself with our industry-breaking methods and techniques. As one of the earliest companies in the self-publishing game (before it was “mainstream” to consider self-publishing), we believe in teaching you to fish to feed yourself for a lifetime, instead of simply handing you the fish and then charging you each time you need to eat again. By working with us, you will grow a larger network of like-minded people, stronger skills in goal setting and self-motivation, and you will ultimately learn how to achieve your goals—repeatedly.
Q15: What’s the difference between Fundamentals of Fiction and Full-Time Fiction?
Full-Time Fiction is best for those who have already published a book and are looking to really grow their fiction platform, sell more books, and make fiction writing a full-time job. Think of Full-Time Fiction as marketing and fiction business building, whereas Fundamentals of Fiction is for those who want to learn how to both write a high-quality fiction book and publish it successfully.
