How We Help New And Existing Authors Around The World

The goal is not just to write a book, but to become a published author. The full Write a Book in a Week program consists of separate, goal-oriented learning modules. The focus of every module in this program is maximum output with minimum, but dedicated effort. If you're an entrepreneur—or just someone with a story to share—then Write a Book in a Week was created just for you. The program includes (but is not limited to):

  • Plan and Write Your Book

    Good books aren't written, they're structured in a systematic way that makes them a success.

  • Publish Your Book

    Book publishing is governed by business principles that haven't changed in 50 years ... and aren't going to change anytime soon.

Frequent Author Questions

Whether you’re a existing author looking to refresh your book marketing skills, learn new trends, and find fresh strategic inspiration, or you’re a new author with just a burning desire to "one day" write a book—you’re right where you should be. I'd love to work with you. But if you have some questions first, check this page for the answers. Or just get in touch to see how our program works.

  • Why did you make this course?

    After my book came out, everybody asked me how I managed to write a book, how I found a publishing home for it, and then (eventually) how I managed to turn my book into a bestseller. The entire process made me fall in love with writing books and seeing them published, and I want to share those benefits with as many budding authors as possible. I believe everyone has a book inside of them - and it's time to bring that book out and put it down on paper.

  • Will this be more work?

    Yes. Writing a book is a lot of work, and after it's published there's even more work: being a published author can open doors for you that you never thought were possible. The key is to have a system. This course is a learning experience designed for you to leave with tangible outcomes and a proven structure to follow on the rest of your author journey.

  • Do I have to finish my book in a week?

    Not necessarily. Once you know the system to write a book in a week you can choose to apply that system to any timeline you're comfortable with, whether it's a week, a month, a year, or a decade. It's up to you. The key is to have a system that will break the book writing and publishing process down into manageable pieces. Using a step-by-step proven approach you can implement it at any pace you're comfortable with. The key is to get started.

  • What about the quality of a book written in a week?

    See for yourself: my Freedom Project book series is written using the approach I teach. The focus in this program is not on speed or creating content quickly, it's about following a proven system that will help you get your book idea out of your head and down on paper. You can write your entire manuscript in well under one week, and then take appropriate time for the editing process to finetune your writing. As Ernest Hemingway said: "Write drunk, edit sober."

  • Is this self-publishing?

    In the course we'll discuss a number of publishing options and the pros and cons for each. Self-publishing is one of the options available to you, but ending up with a basement or garage full of books was never my goal: there are better options out there.

  • Can't I do this on my own?

    Sure. Information is free and abundant. You're not required to work with me, but the proven best practice approach I teach in this course will save you both time and money versus figuring it all out on your own. Most books published (including those published by traditional publishers) will fail and never sell more than a few copies. This course is designed to increase your chances of success and avoid the pile of "flopped" books.

  • How do I know if this is right for me?

    Not sure if this is the right program for you? Get in touch or request a complimentary preview and we'll walk you through the details of becoming an "authorpreneur" and what this would mean for you and your business. Would NOW be a good time to get started?

    No problem. You can message my team using the messenger icon at the bottom of this page. You're also welcome to text me directly at 587-327-0333. I look forward in hearing from you and supporting you on your author journey.

I've always wanted to be a published author

My initial thoughts for what later became my first book, were merely emails to friends. I never expected my thoughts would become a published book, let alone a bestselling book. Yet both of these things happened. And when you have a system, the process is much easier than most will try to make you believe.
