Everybody wants to write a book,but actually sitting down and getting it finished is a huge challenge and commitment. And then what? How do you get people to actually read it? How do you know you’re not wasting your time and money chasing an impossible dream?
Everybody wants to write a book,
but actually sitting down and getting it finished is a huge challenge and commitment. And then what? How do you get people to actually read it? How do you know you’re not wasting your time and money chasing an impossible dream?
FACT: The publishing industry is a mess,
and great books don’t succeed without marketing. But who has time to build a big platform or get sucked into the tarpit of social media? Self-publishing has become a billion dollar industry, but it’s a “pay-to-publish” scheme profiting off the hopes and dreams of indie authors.
Imagine if there was a
that mapped out exactly how to writing a bestselling book, while also building a platform of loyal readers – so you could launch a bestseller easily just by sending out one simple email.
Without begging friends and family for book reviews. Without hustling on social media, or spending years waiting for permission from agents or publishers (and collecting stacks of rejection letters.)
Imagine being able to just write what you love, with no stress or fear or frustration about whether your book is good enough, or whether it will earn any money – because your book already has an audience of hungry readers waiting for it.

Thanks for pouring your heart and soul into this course- it has become life changing for me! Your course broke me out of writer’s block and has helped me tap back into my flow. I’ve always been somewhat hesitant to really put my writing out there because of the fear of failing but being given permission to fail and now expecting to fail my way to success has taken that paralysis away.

Oh my gosh, thank you Thank You THANK YOU! This is exactly what I needed. Step-by-step of exactly what to do. Fumbling around for the past year trying to figure out how to get reviews. This is direct, to the point, understandable! I’ve made a lot of mistakes on the 3 books I currently have out, and as you can guess, they’re not selling. But the next one…now I’m armed with knowledge! I’m dedicating my next book to Derek!”

I’ve learned more from you in the past few months, since becoming a student, than I have in the last five years,. Every day I give thanks, sincerely, you have given me direction and instruction on how to get to the life I have always wanted. Words will never be able to express the gratitude I have towards you.

Book marketing doesn’t have to be awkward or uncomfortable. In fact, 95% of the “book marketing” actually takes place before you publish. It’s about finding the value in your work, and communicating the benefits in a way that makes people beg for a copy.
Stop wasting time & money on USELESS book promotion tactics!
to selling more books is…
NOT to pay for more visibility or publicity: first you need to figure out how to communicate value in an emotionally and culturally relevant way. You have to make your book matter, quickly. So they’ll listen to what you have to say. Otherwise – NOBODY CARES.
After months of testing and thousands of failed experiments, I figured out the core components of a radically new way for writing and publishing books readers love… I boiled down everything into an easy-to-follow, step-by-step system of just three simple steps. Get these right and you won’t even need to market your books.
Write books readers love
Most authors write for themselves, and then have NO IDEA who else might like their book or why they should read it.
The GP way: Respect your audience enough to care what they think, and know them well enough to deliberately give them an unforgettable reading experience.
Publish books that sell
Most authors lose money, throwing away cash on expensive PR that doesn’t work, and having no way to track ROI.
The GP way: position and package your book to attract readers on autopilot, and launch profitably from day one.
Launch to #1 (and stay there)
Most authors disappear into the Amazon abyss after they’ve exhausted all their friends and family.
The GP way: build a loyal platform of loyal readers, and tickle the Amazon algorithm to promote your book for you, so you STAY visible even when you stop marketing.
Three strikes you’re out
If you’re missing any one of these, your book won’t sell – you’ll be relying on luck, crossing your fingers and tossing coins into the wishing well without ever seeing results. Self publishing is a billion dollar industry, but almost none of the money is going to authors.

There’s a better way
The 3 reasons your book will fail (and how to fix them)
A year ago I bought your course, having decided to dedicate my life to becoming an author. I did it mostly for the support because it was a big step. I never regretted it. You’ve been there every step of the way to provide feedback. You and the group kept me going on days when I bashed myself in the head and said “what the#^&% am I doing?”

I stumbled across Guerrilla Publishing at the time I needed it most. With Derek’s help, my debut settled nicely into Amazon’s top 500 overall and earned five-figures. With the release of the sequel, my income for January alone was just shy of $30,000. If you’re feeling overwhelmed in the literary world and haven’t settled onto a clear path to success, Guerrilla Publishing could change your life!

You’ll get everything you need to write great books and market them with integrity, PLUS expert advice to save you time and money.
A FOUR STEP STRATEGY TO PUBLISHING SUCCESS
First, you’ll figure out who your target audience is and what they actually want, so you can position and design your book to attract them – which will easily triple your marketing efforts. Then you’ll use my writing resources and templates to double-check the most important parts of your book, to avoid amateur mistakes and strengthen the final product.
★ how to outline your book, to save months of painful revision
★ finding time to write (even if you’re busy)
★ never get writer’s block or procrastination again
★ market research and competition analysis
★ choosing keywords and categories for free visibility
★ instantly hook their interest so they pay attention
Second, we’ll deep-dive into the principles of bestselling book design. Getting the cover right is crucial to success (even if you hire a professional designer, you may still end up with a cover that doesn’t sell unless you understand why one cover performs better than another.)
I’ll share templates for formatting, recommend best fonts, and also walk you through uploading your files for print and ebook distribution, and how to focus on the things that matter most.
★ cover design secrets that sell
★ how to format your own books for print and ebook
★ where to upload your files for maximum distribution
★ optimizing your Amazon page and metadata
★ mistakes that will get you blacklisted from bookstores
★ best fonts to use for every genre
★ writing a powerful blurb that seizes the imagination
Third, you’ll learn how to build an email list of fans, get a bunch of reviews, and launch your book to #1 bestseller and make it an “instant classic.” I’ll give you the exact book launch checklist I’ve used to launch hundreds of books, and share the best promotional sites and strategies to get maximum visibility.
★ build an engaged email list with book giveaways
★ get book reviews without begging or buying
★ build trust and credibility with your autoresponder
★ prelaunch with promo graphics (templates included!)
★ how to get media attention (without useless press releases)
★ finding influencers who will share your launch
Fourth, you’ll learn how to maintain long-term visibility by growing and automating your author platform. Hitting #1 for a day feels great in the short-term, but if you want to make a living as a writer you need your books to keep selling for months, if not years, after launch.
We’ll also improve your branding and story, and get your author platform and sales growing on autopilot – so you can stop marketing and have the freedom and energy and to write books you love.
★ how to set up your author website (and what to blog about)
★ Facebook, Twitter and social media hacks
★ AMS and Facebook advertising
★ joint author promos and content marketing
★ how to hit the USA Today or NYT bestseller lists
To launch bestsellers, you need three things:
1. A book readers love (and actually find)
2. Amazing book design and formatting
3. A platform of supportive readers
Screw up any one of them, and your book won’t sell no matter how much visibility you get.
The problem is, for most people, getting these things right is really difficult. HOW do you get more book reviews? What makes a bestselling cover? What kind of blurb will convert readers?
My innovative process for creating books that sell is the ONLY foolproof way to make a living as a writer, and if you do it right, you won’t even need book marketing.
I spent months recording detailed videos breaking down my entire process, and answering every publishing question I could think of. I included step-by-step strategies showing you exactly what to do, so you never have to worry about “what’s next.”
