Finish Your Book!

How to finish writing your book with the confidence your book will launch to five-star reviews

Take the first step to getting your book out into the world

“A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit.”
― Richard Bach

How much more confident will you be when you know you are taking the right steps to publishing so well that you can make the decision to self-publish or send your manuscript to an agent for a traditional publishing deal?

How confidence-inspiring would it be if you were certain about where your book fits into the marketplace?

Wouldn't it be awesome to gather a tribe of critique partners from writing groups, and early readers who love your work?

Would you like to find out how to connect and stay connected with them your entire career? This is not only a smart business decision, but it's fun and motivating to see early readers become raving super-fans who give you five-star reviews and share your books by word of mouth and social media.

This course bundle will help you do just that.

You can find your readers, publish your book, and enjoy a career as a published author.

"Carla’s course is a must for the novice and seasoned self-publisher alike. She lays out the essential steps in a logical and understandable way. She’ll answer questions you didn’t know you had about the publishing industry!"

—Jeanette F. Chaplin, Ed.D., author, Fireweed Glow and other books

"It's actually fun to take these lessons. They are full of good advice, practical tips, and they include tons of resource material, all presented in a manner that is easy to follow and use. Carla's infectious, bright personality and generous willingness to help others work their way through the jungle of self-publishing is evident throughout the course."

Tamara Merrill, author, The Augustus Family Trilogy

"Carla King's courses and experiences have been the most critical step along my road to self-publishing. Her many years of experience in the field is continually updated, and thereby you receive current pertinent information, a critical element in a quickly changing world. After a mediocre experience with an established publisher for my first book, I considered another book project to be unlikely. Without her help and guidance on self-publishing, I doubt my most recent two books would have been written."

Norm DeWitt, author, Making it Faster

Carla’s well-organized course about self-publishing is packed with friendly and helpful ideas.

—Leila Peltosaari, author, Dancing with Fear and Sell Your Words (release Spring 2018), Tikka Books, Montreal

This course will give you the know-how to do everything you need to do to ensure your freedom to self-publish or make a deal with an agent and a publishing house by creating a manuscript that readers want.

Recruit early readers and cultivate them into super-fan, beta publish, and get the editing you need.

Self-publishing may be your final goal or a first step in your career as an independent author. There's nothing to stop you from becoming a hybrid author who self-publishes some books and, for others, uses an agent to publish with the traditional publishing houses.

This course provides an overview of the steps you need to take to launch to five-star reviews.

You'll learn

  • How to set a reasonable deadline
  • How to choose the right tools and services
  • How to recruit critique partners and beta readers
  • How to cultivate super fans early in your writing process
  • How important editing is and how to get it

Make the right decisions to transform yourself from a writer to an independent author with the knowledge, confidence, and freedom to do what's best for your book and your career.

Now... let's do this!

This course is easy enough for newbies and enlightening for those like myself with certain publishing experience. King gives great ideas and processes around working with beta readers... If you are interested in going the indie publishing route, I suggest you start here and travel with Carla!"

You can do this!

Enrollment in this course is a commitment to succeed as an author. It's a commitment to finishing your book, perfecting your manuscript, and preparing it for publication.

While many authors dream of publishing, most don't take the steps to actually make it happen. So, just by starting, you're actually halfway there. Pat yourself on the back and let's get busy!

You won't be alone. You'll be guided along the path with regular webinars, blog posts, and Q&A sessions. You can also comment on each lesson and join the private Facebook group for discussion, feedback, and promotion.

"Carla has taken the fear and mystery out of self-publishing. Her total knowledge of the process from beginning to end is exceeded only by her ability to communicate it in terms even a novice like myself could understand. A rare talent indeed!"

J.B. Stronberg, author Earth v Trump: A Failure to Protect

"Carla’s teaching abilities, to not only explain writing in general, but to provide the knowledge necessary to take one's book from start to fruition is much appreciated by the seasoned author as well as one just starting out. Her accomplishments speak for themselves! My writing career has only been possible by the commitment of Carla to teach everything that one needs to know."

Dan Dockery, Upstart Author
