"If you're serious about creating an author business then this course is a must. Carla has broken the courses down into bite-size, manageable pieces that even the busiest person can find the time to work through and never lose focus. Her friendly nature and responsiveness to questions is a bonus you'll not find everywhere. She truly cares about our success."

- A. M. Bochnak, Fortitude Rising

"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, Motorsports author, Making it Faster, Faster Publishing

"It's actually fun to take this course. It is full of good advice, practical tips, and includes 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. It was her first book and her enthusiasm that encouraged me to successfully publish four books."

Tamara Merrill, The Augustus Family Trilogy, Konstellation Press

"Self publishing can be terrifying for any author—beginner or experienced. Carla's solid research and soothing narrative gives us authors a chance to breathe comfortably and feel the courage needed to plunge into current turmoil that used to be called the publishing business. While I haven't fully abandoned liquid courage, I need a lot less of it thanks to Carla's invaluable guidance."

Michael Shames,

I look forward to guiding you on your publishing journey!

"Several years ago I attended one of Carla's workshops and I’ve been a raving fan ever since. I was thrilled when she offered this online course and I signed up for the bundle as soon as it was launched. I can’t say enough about the material and the care she takes to help authors achieve success. Carla’s long history as a writer, publisher, consultant, and workshop leader contributes to the richness of this course which is practical, comprehensive, engaging, inviting, inspiring, and empowering. I'm especially grateful for the lifetime access and continual updates as I continue on my publishing journey."

Lynn Fraley, Ageless Energy

"The course modules include theories, concepts, application of the processes, and content from industry experts in various focused publishing disciplines. The lessons are strategically grouped in small sections for digestible consumption and the workflow helps demystify the author and publishing relationships in the process, illustrates the potential pitfalls when rushing the process, and helps build a solid learning framework."
