"Publish A Profitable Book changed the course of my career. I signed up 3 years ago and now have 9 published books that can stand on a shelf with any NYT bestseller. The course provides all you need to publish successfully and professionally, along with unbelievable support (which is almost impossible to find these days). Elizabeth has become my favourite person in the industry."

First, a message from Elizabeth...

[Click to Play]

You've written a great book that you know readers will love......

You've put your heart and soul into every word, and now that it's finished, you don't want it to live only on your laptop. You're excited to get it out there and excitedly await the opportunities that are available to you as a result.

BUT...you have NO IDEA how to get it published!

 

You're probably thinking:

  • "I'd publish it myself if I knew how to do it correctly (but I have no idea how to do it correctly)."
  • "Every website tells me something different, and not wanting to make the 'wrong' choice is keeping me from making any choice!"   
  • I'll go through a few more rounds of edits (even though I've been through 38 already), and then I'll consider publishing it." 
  • "Maybe one day, a big publisher will come along and want to publish it. That would certainly be easier." (Sidenote: it probably won't be easier.)

AND THE WORST PART IS...

  • You see others publishing books left and right and wonder, "What do they know that I don't?" 
  • You know that your book would be adored by the same people who are out there buying everyone else's books in the same genre, if only it were available for purchase.
  • You see so many opportunities that would be available to you as a published author, such as being invited to speak on podcasts or TV segments; coaching, consulting or speaking on stage; or simply writing more books.

But first, you need to figure out how to get your book out of "draft" and into "published!"

Let me assure you...

The only REAL problem you have is: you don't know what steps to follow to publish a book that's no different in quality from a NYT bestseller (while retaining all rights and earnings, and creative control).

⛔️ You do not need the validation of a "big name" publishing house to make your dream of being the published author of an impactful, profitable book a reality. 

 

✅ What you do need is someone who knows EXACTLY what to do (because she's done it—dozens of times) and can walk you, step-by-step, to becoming a published author so that your increased authority can grow your brand and connect you with the thousands of people who can't wait to read the book you've written (even if they don't yet know it exists).

YOU'RE NOT ALONE IN THIS!

In fact, I was once EXACTY where you are right now...

Hi there! I'm Elizabeth. In 2002, after one too many agents said, "We don't believe in your book" (okay, that's not exactly what they said, but it's what I heard), I wondered, "How hard can this be?" Famous last words, but I was determined as heck. 

I spent years in perpetual "figure it out" mode, learning the ins and outs of publishing (to the tune of 55,000+ copies sold to date), and ultimately opening up my publishing house to dozen of other authors. 

One goal critical to my success was figuring out how to publish a book that looked and felt exactly like one the "big guys" would publish. 

I realized that my adventures learning to navigate the book publishing industry combined with my love of coaching put me in a position to help others stop believing that traditional publishing is the only way so they can take control of their career as an author, get their books published while retaining 100% of their rights (and 100% of their earnings) and being excitedly curious about what new doors would open as a result. 

OVER THE PAST 19+ YEARS, I'VE INVESTED COUNTLESS HOURS (AND DOLLARS) INTO RESEARCH, GUESSWORK, AND (SOMETIMES) FLYING BY THE SEAT OF MY PANTS...

(I don't recommend the "flying by the seat of your pants" part---especially when there's a better way!)

I've gained valuable insights that consistently save new authors time and money (not to mention sanity).

 

As a result, I now work directly with aspiring authors through my Book Writing Accelerator program. I also expanded Finn-Phyllis Press (the publishing company I formed) into an independent house.

 

And because I'm such a fan of DIY (just check my Instagram feed for proof), I packaged all of my publishing steps (the same ones I use to publish my own book as well as Finn-Phyllis Press authors) into an easy-to-follow, step-by-step course that can help YOU become the published author you dream of being.

 

From summits and corporate keynotes to 1:1 and group coaching to TV appearances and lucrative product partnerships, being a published author has opened more personal and professional doors than I ever imagined possible.

 

Receiving thoughtful emails from readers admitting they laughed their way through a particular chapter or thanking me for reminding them that they aren't the only one who feels like giving up or eating an entire carton of ice cream in one sitting never ceases to remind me that each of our stories benefits someone else—and that fact alone makes them ALL worth telling.

 

THAT'S why it's so important to me to help you get your book published. There are people waiting to hear exactly what you have to say, and not knowing how to navigate the process shouldn't continue to hold you back. 

Newsflash:

 

You can ABSOLUTELY publish a book that's indistinguishable in quality from a New York Times bestseller without:

 

  • Spending hours and hours down the how-do-I-publish-a-book-that-sells rabbit hole 
  • Investing thousands of dollars in book publishing add-ons you don't need
  • Having a massive following on social media or a huge email list

 

All you need to know is which steps to take...and which to avoid so that you don't fall into the same "high expectations low reward" traps many other first-time authors fall into.

That is why I created PUBLISH A PROFITABLE BOOK

 

I wanted to help authors just like you publish a book that: 

☑️ Is so high in quality that no one will know it wasn't published by "the big guys"

☑️ Readers can't wait to dive into, can't put down, and consistently recommend to others

☑️ Makes you wonder, "Why didn't I do this sooner?" 

YES, I WANT THIS!

"As an indie author with a large social media following, I’ve been pitched by quite a few coaches and book/publishing consultants. Elizabeth was the only one who literally didn’t pitch at me at all, and who didn’t hesitate for even a second to show me her real book sales figures when I asked. In a sea of “experts” that never seem to be able to show me what they’ve actually accomplished, Elizabeth’s willingness to be transparent, authentic, and honest about what she can and can’t do has been a real breath of fresh air. "

Drew Linsalata
Author, The Anxious Truth

"Working with Elizabeth has been an amazing experience. I would highly recommend that anyone considering a writing project to partner with Elizabeth. I certainly could not have a published book with out her!"

Kara Forney
Author, Boy Moms

WOULD IT SURPRISE YOU TO LEARN THAT...

  • Over 1 million titles will be published this year—and more than half of them will be independently published.
  • Indie authors are publishing the highest number of books (across all genres)
  • The majority of books sold are NOT carried by traditional bookstores (60-80% of consumers purchase their books from Amazon).
  • 56% of authors who are business owners report that having a published book has had a “strong to very strong” influence on attracting ideal clients. 
  • Thanks to social media and increased distribution options, independent authors are earning unlimited, long-term income from book sales (as in, while they're sleeping).

Frequently Asked Questions

The beauty of PPB is that the timing is yours. Some participants carve out an hour per day, some plan for a 3-hour stint each week, and some do a Netflix-style binge right from the get-go.

The beauty of unlimited access is that you can work at a pace and on a schedule that's perfect for YOUR lifestyle. And, should something unexpected come up (and it almost always does), there's no worry about falling behind. When things settle down, you can jump back in and pick up right where you left off.

Your unlimited access (for the life of the course) grants you just that---unlimited access to all course modules, bonuses, resources and the members-only Facebook group. This includes all updates, upgrades and new features added (for not a penny more!).

One of the best aspects of PPB is that, through the private Facebook members-only group, a network of like-minded, supportive authors and aspiring authors are ready and waiting to encourage you, motivate you, answer your questions and/or talk you down off a ledge (of the writing or publishing variety at least).

Elizabeth will also hold office hours via Zoom once per month for course participants to ask question and receive specific guidance on any areas where they're feeling "stuck." 

You'll also receive Members Only emails to equip you with marketing strategies, distribution approaches, success stories and, of course, any course upgrades or updates so that you know exactly where to find them each time you login!

That's a great (and valid) question! It's no fun to get what seems like a great deal on, say, a computer, only to find out that you need to buy the required screen and hard drive separately.

Beyond your investment in the course, I recommend that you hire a professional editor, cover designer, and interior formatter. I've vetted the best resources to help you with this at the fairest prices, and I share all of those resources (including the special pricing I've negotiated with several of them) within the course.

As a guideline, it's suggested that you budget an additional $.04/word for editing services as well as an additional $500 to cover book cover design and interior formatting (combined, not each). 

Still, your total outlay for a high-quality published book will easily cost several thousand dollars less than it would if you hired a firm or publishing group to do the work for you.

For reference, Finn-Phyllis Press's publishing package starts at $5500, and we are on the low end of the spectrum. If you'd like to chat with us about hiring us to publish your book, please reach out -- we'd love to speak with you!

Yes! The publishing process is the same, whether you're publishing fiction, non-fiction, memoir, poetry, or any other genre!

14-DAY RISK-FREE MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

We're so confident that Publish A Profitable Book can get you from "I wrote a book" to "I'm a published author" that we offer a 14-day money-back guarantee.


This guarantee is meant to support participants who TRULY aren't the right fit for the course. It's not intended to support buyer's remorse. If you determine that PPB won't work for you, simply contact us, let us know why, and show us the work you've done in at least the first three modules. If we are unable to identify a solution for the challenge you're having, we'll be happy to issue a refund.
