While your manuscript is being groomed and ready to publish you’ll learn about what goes into getting your book ready for uploading, publishing inside secrets of success, and how to use the many publishing platforms open to you and your book.

You’ll also be given the inside secrets to what you need to do to master the authority journey – not just write and publish your book.
