Budget Publishing Mastermind Course

Learn How to Create The Best Books and Market Them for the Best Results

This Publishing Mastermind Course is for authors who want to learn everything there is to know, start to finish, no holding back, from the basics and well beyond into what all the big earners in publishing usually keep to themselves.

This course is run in view only mode (meaning no feedback) at a fraction of the cost to take the full version of the course (with feedback). However, you can upgrade anytime during the first year for a full credit of what is already paid to the full version.

There are 86 lessons in all which will be delivered at a rate of 1 lesson per 3 weeks.

The first lesson will explain how to make $20-$700 a month to ensure you can cover the expense of this course. It will not delay the delivery of the other lessons listed below.
