LA Writers Lab


Are you tired of waiting to hear back from an agent or publisher?

Are you fed up with notes that are not designed to improve your work but simply to make it more “commercial”?

A revolution has happened in the publishing world. It has been democratized through a variety of distribution channels including Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, barnesandnoble.com, and Smashwords.

Thousands of authors are supplementing their income and/or leaving their day jobs from the revenue generated from self-publishing their work. We no longer have to wait for the big five traditional publishing houses to rubber stamp our work. In fact, the major houses are now vying for the right to publish authors, rather than the other way around.

In this four day LIVE intensive you will:  

  • Participate in interviews and Q&A’s with successful self-published authors.
  • Learn how to launch a successful book campaign.
  • Get recommendations and discounts on professional book designers.
  • Learn how to build a platform, develop a brand and market your book.
  • Have all of your questions answered from how to upload a book to Amazon, to where to buy a bar code.
  • Learn how to leverage book sales into a traditional publishing deal.
  • Learn how to sell the world rights to your self-published book.
  • Get tips on how to develop a social media presence.
  • Join a group of like-minded authors whom you can stay in contact with and support through this process.
  • And much more!
