Won't it feel amazing to know that you're on track and moving toward your dream of publishing your book & sharing it with the world?

Myth

You need to write and write and polish your book until it's "good enough" for an agent or publisher to take notice. Once you get signed, your troubles are over and you can start shopping for that beach house on a quiet island while your royalty checks roll in.

Myth

Indie publishing is only for people with stacks of money to pay for editors, cover designers, marketing experts, publicists, printers, private chefs, and makeup artists.

Myth

Indie publishing is a much less legitimate path to getting published and anyone with talent and self-respect should wait to be worthy of a "real" publishing deal. 

Indie publishing isn't for real authors.

TRUTH

The publishing world has been turned upside down by the Internet.

Traditional publishers no longer hold the same power to lift you to fame and a prosperous writing career. 

  • TIP: If you’re not already famous or didn’t just get involved in a political scandal, most publishers probably won’t help you much.

You can self-publish your books without much technical skill and on a shoestring budget – both of your workshop teachers have done exactly that and will show you how!

You don’t need to be a great salesperson or marketing expert to grow your audience and share your work. 

During this information-rich full-day workshop, you will learn how to end the eternal waiting and get your real writing career in gear now.

This workshop will save you years of frustration and tons of cash you don't need to spend on flashy scams that promise new authors the world but deliver little.

Learn From Working Indie Writers

Each of your teachers is an active author with years of experience in all facets of self-publishing – from idea to draft and finished manuscript, book design and title crafting, marketing and platform building. 

Each session is worth the entire price of admission as you will gain insights that can save you years of frustration and thousands of dollars wasted on programs that take advantage of new authors without delivering the value they need. Let these experienced writers show you how – specifically and in detail.

Do you ever find yourself saying or thinking, “I’m just not that creative”?

In a recent World Economic Forum study, creativity has risen to #3 on the “Top Skills Needed For Career Survival” list – which means that this ability is no longer optional or only to be developed by artists, musicians, writers, or those in the “genius inventor” innovator class.

  • Take the course and you will:
    Use the Creative Cure Personal Assessment to gain clarity about what areas of your life are begging for creative restoration.
  • Discover your values and how to begin realigning your life with what matters most.
  • Learn about the powerful “Green Zone” in your nervous system and how to get there every day to experience anxiety relief, foster creative ideas, enjoy natural healing, and enhance your ability to connect – and create.
  • Grow your understanding of left- and right-brain function, plus how to access brain wave states that cultivate deep learning and rewiring of limiting beliefs.
  • Develop a regular creative practice in just minutes per day that will bring you greater peace, energy, focus, and enhance your “Creator Mindset” so that you feel empowered to craft a life that matters to you.
  • Learn to use creative tension vs. harmful stress as fuel.

Lauren Sapala coached Highly Sensitive Writers for years before she discovered one of the biggest obstacles holding them back in their writing careers: a rock-solid resistance to marketing. Regardless of the wealth of book marketing tools and resources available to writers and artists today, most highly creative people still feel suspicious, confused, or just plain turned off by marketing and sales. The hidden reason behind this resistance is a deeply rooted fear that marketing always results in a loss of integrity for the writer.

Almost all highly creative people are also Highly Sensitive People, many of which are INFJ or INFP personality types. These Highly Sensitive Writers feel any possible threat to their integrity intensely. The fear they feel around marketing for writers takes root in limiting beliefs that shut them down before they even begin. Lauren Sapala shares stories and strategies to help Highly Sensitive Writers shift their mindset and open up to new ways to promote their work. She helps all writers realize that—due to their Highly Sensitive nature—they might just make the best salespeople of all.
