Get Your Book Out into the World in 2023 with the Academy's Live Online Workshops

As a Nonfiction Book Accelerator Academy member, here are the key steps you'll take each month through your live online workshops to finally write, self-publish, and launch a quality nonfiction book that sells in 2023!

These workshops are intentionally designed in bite-sized actions, so you don't get overwhelmed and quit before your book becomes a reality, like so many other aspiring authors have done.

Let’s face it.  

As a speaker, business owner, coach, consultant, or all of the above, you already have a lot on your plate, both professionally and personally. You don’t need another training that devours tons of your precious time before you see results.    You need to get things done in a way that fits your schedule --- and fast.

Missed a Phase or a Step?

No problem.
