Due to advances in technology, now anyone can present their books to a worldwide audience with the click of a button. But, just because anyone can do it, that doesn’t meanit’s easy, nor does it guarantee that these authors will have any success. Every year, about million new books are published, adding to an already-saturated market. I created From First Draft to Bestseller to show beginning authors how they can create, self-publish, and market a beautiful,high-quality book that will stand out in this crowded market and attract readers using effective and proven strategies that have helped many self-published authorssell enough books to quit their jobs and write full-time.

From First Draft to Bestseller stands out from other online self-publishing courses due to its size and quality of material. Though it’s an 11+ hour course, it’s packed with relevant and concentrated informationwithout the filler and redundancies that bog down other courses. It’s also taught by a certifiedteacher with over ten years of public school classroomexperience, and it even includes a lesson on how to turn your book into a screenplay.I’m an award-winning, bestselling author of three independently published novels that have outsold authors such as Chuck Palahniuk, Michael Crichton, and Kurt Vonnegut on Amazon’s Kindle store. Two of my threenovels have been recommended byKirkus Reviews and my most recent, The Summer of Crud, was selected to the Barnes & Noble B&NPress Picks list for February/March 2018.I’ve also written eleven screenplays that have won over 150 awards/honors in various international screenwriting competitions, andin July 2017, I optioned one of those screenplays to one of the producers of the American Pie and Final Destination films. I currently live in San Diego, CA and teach at a public secondary school.Achieving success as a self-published author is often a long-term journey, but if you stay positive and apply the strategies you learn from this course, youll likely experienceenough successes along the way to keep you energized and moving forward on that path where youll learn things about yourself you that will amaze and inspire you.
