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.’ I saw a webinar with Chandler Bolt and signed right up! 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!

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. I gained the most through the 1-on-1 coaching and the community is what I continue to learn from. Ramy [coach] really taught me how to launch it, how to gain an audience, the outline, develop the plot points. With Whispering Pines, I published it in September of 2017 and as of September 2019, I have hit 10,000 units sold.

Step 7

Launch your book successfully!

90% of books sell less than 100 copies after they’re published entirely due to a poorly planned book launch strategy. At Self-Publishing School, we refuse to let that happen.

After years of being on the front lines of publishing on Amazon (and after helping over 4,000+ students write and publish their OWN books), we’ve developed proprietary book launch strategies which we are so confident in, we GUARANTEE their effectiveness.

  • You’ll receive clear instructions on how to rally support from your friends, family, and even strangers on the internet to build your Book Launch team.
  • We’ll work with you to create a book launch email campaign and an Amazon pricing strategy to maximize the initial downloads your book will receive on Amazon.
  • By working closely with your coach, the strategies we lay out for you, and with the support of our Mastermind Community, you can expect a full, successful book launch.

I decided to join Self-Publishing School because I saw it as a formalized vehicle to tackle my macro-level goal of creating systemic change in social justice through children’s literature. My favorite part is having a roadmap and the support of a coach. My coach was incredible! I think the biggest asset she brought to my writing process was leveraging her talent in the 28 scenes of a children’s book.

Fundamentals of Fiction Student

Years ago I wanted to write a book, but couldn’t find the resources. Self-Publishing School attracted me because of Chandler Bolt. He made it seem like something we could do, was accessible, and he was so kind and warm. I’ve found the coaching in particular to be extremely helpful, and has accelerated my progress as a writer.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 totaling up to $1,000, cutting down on the time, cost, and increasing quality of the final product.

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 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.

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.

Do I HAVE to publish in 90 days or can I take longer?

You can publish at your own speed. The program materials will be available to you for a lifetime, however, we do recommend following our 90 or 180 day timelines in order to stay on track and publish your book effectively, as our methods are designed to push you to complete and publish your book during this time.

Do you read, edit, or critique my writing?

No. We provide all the necessary resources and training to acquire beta readers as well as critique partners, with a rolodex of Self-Publishing School approved editors, proofreaders, cover designers, and more with exclusive discounts for our students, totaling up to $1,000.

Already have a book but want to sell more? Or maybe you’re writing fiction?

We’ve got programs for that too.
