Ever notice how there’s a lot more people that say they’re going to write a book than there are people that have actually written a book?

That’s because book writing is romanticized as some super creative thing that only people directly connected with their muse do. In reality though, writing a book is simply a matter of putting a lot of little steps together into one massive plan.

And the good thing is, none of those steps, once you know them, are tremendously hard to do.

That’s why we created the Finish Your Damn Book course. We’ve both been there on the “I want to write a book” side and then on the “I’ve written and released a book” side. And that’s where we want to help you. We want you to join us on the finished book side.

"Paul Jarvis is my go-to book sherpa. He's done it all, and knows what it takes to get a book from idle fantasy to smart, purposeful, lucrative launch."
GALA DARLING

This self-led course is for you if:

  • You’re down to do a lot of research, evaluating and incremental steps.
  • You’re ok to get ideas down that aren’t polished at first, and increment your greatness.
  • You aren’t afraid of experimenting, pushing bound aries and asking yourself hard questions about  your writing.

This self-led is NOT for you if:

  • You don’t want to work, you just want to add “Bestselling author” to your bio.
  • You equate simple answers with easy answers.
  • You don’t care about what you write or your audience, you just want a vanity project.
“Paul Jarvis is a lively, talented & incredibly insightful writer.”

We’ve both used the exact steps and process we teach to launch bestselling books and books that have made more than $80k before their launch!

We know this course works because it’s what we both do to take ideas about books to released books.

We break your book writing down into 10, easy to follow lessons

Define your intentions, topic & audience
The easiest way to get from book idea to book launch is to start with why you want to write a book.

Become an idea machine & master framer
Writing needs to be broken up into two very separate and very distinct practices: brainstorming, where no idea is a bad idea, and framing, where you edit/critique what’s already written.

First drafts & storytelling
Do you know what all first drafts have in common, whether they’re from an unknown, unpublished author or from a best-selling, famous-as-all-get-out author?

Build your audience
If you think you’ll worry about promotion once the book is launched, you’ll be way behind the game. So you need to start telling people about your book, what the premise is, and why they should be excited about it well before it’s even finished.

Iterations & editing
Clarity and bravery happen in small iterations. Now’s the time to take that first draft and start making it into your masterpiece.

Pricing & tiered pricing
There are so many models for pricing a book it can be dizzying. Really, it comes down to two factors: What do you feel comfortable charging? What does your audience feel comfortable paying?

Writing software & formatting
The best tool for writing your book is the writing tool you’re most comfortable using. Especially when writing a draft, the software isn’t as important as the writing is.

Platform + distribution
Go through each platform and set up your book well ahead of time to make sure you understand each step and test how it works, or just choose a distributor.

Crafting a sales page
Your sales page should be 100% focused on your book. That means no massive sidebars with links to other parts of your site if you can help it, no blog post comments at the bottom, nothing but book information and purchasing buttons.

Launching
Tell the world about your book! This is both exciting and scary. It’s also the most overwhelming part of the process, as there tends to be a lot to get done beyond just hitting the “publish” button.
