Our Core Values


Our courses should be easy to follow, user friendly, and the pathway should be determined by the author.


We share a decade of industry experience helping authors publish and market bestselling books.

No B.S.

We don’t promise you’ll become a bestseller in 30 or even 90 days. The truth is it’s a marathon not a sprint, but we’ll give the tools you need to stay in the race.


We show you exactly what we do on a daily basis. This is up-to-date, practical working knowledge to turn you from writer to published author.

About Your Instructor

Hi, I’m Joel Pitney.


I’ve been helping authors get published for a decade, and I want to help you, too.

I helped launch my first book onto the New York Times Bestseller list, and soon began working with a wide range of authors to help bring their books to the world. Over the years, I’ve seen handfuls of other agencies and courses pop up with promises to help authors become bestsellers overnight, or to publish their books in only 30 days. These claims drive me crazy because they’re either untrue, or cutting corners. Neither leads to feeling successful and professional.

In this course, I give you the exact self-publishing formula I use with my clients every day, and walk you through our downloadable timeline template to help you achieve your goals.
