Fundamentals of Fiction & Story

Write & Publish a High-Quality Story That People Want to Read More Of

PROGRAM

Fundamentals of Fiction & Story

If you’re like most of our fiction authors, you’ve tried to write a book before, maybe even more than one, two…perhaps more then five, but for some reason you get stuck. You’re not sure what to do next or what a good book really requires.

And if you want to write books for a living? Well, there’s even more to learn in order to make those dreams a reality. But while it can seem scary and confusing with so much mismatched information out there, we’re here to offer you exactly what you’re looking for:

A step-by-step curriculum with 1-on-1 and group coaching to keep you accountable and teach you how to first write a quality novel readers will love, and then how to publish it successfully.

Our flagship fiction program was developed by a bestselling author with years of experience in both self-publishing and the traditional industry he’s stepped away from, in order to help educate and guide you on the craft of writing while also giving you the tools and skills necessary to build a launch team, publish your book successfully, and connect with other writers with our exclusive Mastermind Community.

Lifetime of Being Inspired by Books > Becoming an Author Herself

Nancy has always loved books since she was 17-years-old. She always wanted to write and publish herself, but couldn’t find the resources. After learning about Self-Publishing School, she realized it was something that’s actually accessible…and possible. This helped Nancy push her fears aside and take action on her lifelong dream.

“I have found the coaching in particular to be really helpful. I felt like that really accelerated my progress as a writer. I’d never written fiction before, but [my coach] got on calls with me and really showed me and guided me to believe I had a story inside of me that I could write about.” – Nancy Hillis

From Rough Draft With No Idea of What to do Next to Published Bestselling Author

Kim started writing a book 6-7 years prior, leaving the manuscript to collect dust in a drawer. After discovering Self-Publishing School, she learned from our free resources for two years before finally deciding to put herself (and her book) first by joining our program. Now she has published four books successfully using our proprietary systems and exclusive Mastermind Community.

“I published [my first book] in september of 2017 and as of september 2019, I’ve hit 10,000 units sold. I’ve got two books out since then, and will get a fourth one out. Self-Publishing School has really given me the tools to pursue my dream of becoming an author.” – Kim Diede

Started Writing at 19 to Having Books in Libraries

Tasche started writing her first book at 19-years-old, but pushed it aside for nearly 20 years before she decided it was time to chase her dreams…but her first try at publishing herself flopped. After signing up for a free training offered by Self-Publishing School, she realized we knew how to teach her to position her book better, get more views, buys, and reviewers. Since, she has continued to be inspired to write and become an author, acquiring speaking engagements at school that house her books in their libraries.

“What attracted me initially was that I felt like the program and courses could help me sell my first book better, and get more reviews and more eyes on it, and I was really having trouble doing that. But then once I got in the course, I was inspired to continue writing.” – Tasche Laine

SELF-PUBLISHING SCHOOL AUTHOR CASE STUDIES

“You won’t regret it, quality comes to those willing to work, but you need a proper guide to show you the way.”

Shankarah Lessey

PROGRAMS YOU JOINED

Fundamentals of Fiction & Story

Type of Book
Epic Fantasy Fiction

What made you want to join Self-Publishing School?
I had a deep story to tell.

Biggest worry before joining:
I was always bad at English Language and was reminded of it by unscrupulous teachers, so I figured being a writer may not be my thing, but after my coach explained the fundamentals and encouraging my ideas I stuck to it, and now I’m on my 8th book after writing well over 3000 pages of material.

Most helpful part of the process:
The one on one calls and genuine interest from my coach to listen to your problem and help.

What was your result of working with us?
Ten years, been planning to do this since I was in my early twenties, now here I am, two years later with 8 manuscripts done and dusted.

Biggest benefit of working with us:
Consistent and continuous support throughout the entire Book Publication Process.

How has your life changed since joining our program/s?
I feel much more accomplished, and it removed the guile and mist away from the myth of publishing to figure out we can all do it.

Advice for anyone thinking of joining:
Do it, you will not regret it everywhere else will just give you piecemeal levels of support at crazy rates, but SPS gives you an entire package to bestow the tools you need to get the job done.

WHAT OUR AUTHORS ARE SAYING

“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
“I published [my first book] in september of 2017 and as of september 2019, I’ve hit 10,000 units sold. I’ve got two books out since then, and will get a fourth one out. Self-Publishing School has really given me the tools to pursue my dream of becoming an author.”
KIM DIEDE
Fundamentals of 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 have had so many great results. I basically am a 5-figure per month author as a new author. Learning these strategies from Self-Publishing School has got me to this point.”

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.
