Believe, Plan, Act: A Platform + Productivity Planner for Writers
Everything you need to discover, plan and execute your writing and business goals for the year – so you can finally remove the word “aspiring” from all your profiles…
This complete author business planning system is designed to specifically address the needs of writers working to build their platforms and author businesses – everything from tracking daily word counts and book sales, to strategic marketing, launch planning, and developing your author brand.
Book Launch Toolkit
I get several emails a week asking the same question in various ways:
How do I plan and execute a book launch that gets REAL results?
What EXACTLY do I have to do and when?
And what if I don’t have a big social media following or an email list of thousands? What then?
To solve this problem, I combined forces with publishing expert Joel Friedlander (TheBookDesigner.com), to create a specialized toolkit that includes training, launch worksheets, checklists and guidelines to maximize your launch and avoid costly errors.
It’s called the Book Launch Toolkit and it will not only save you time, but eliminate the need to create your own plans and templates from scratch (or having to “piece” together strategies from other authors).
Your Writer Platform TV
My YouTube channel, loaded with tools, tips and resources for my growing international community of thousands of rising “authorpreneurs”, to help you build your platforms, engage your fans and sell more books.
