Who is This Course For?

My Story

I am a writer, editor, book coach and publisher. I started Bacon Press Books 13 years ago so I could learn about independent publishing. Once I had enough experience, I wanted to show other authors how to do it. Publishing your own book is a pretty big leap. It's much easier with a friendly, knowledgeable guide.

Not everyone wants to be a best seller

Kay promised her father she'd gather all his articles into a book. By the time he reached 105, her father had written quite a few. She had boxes of articles, clippings, and photographs and no idea how create a book

I couldn't have done it on my own

by Kay Dryden, The Way I Saw It: Reflections of a Centenarian

Michele brought an artful combination of skill, intuition, experience, and empathy to guide me, a complete neophyte, through the process of publishing a book that means a great deal to me. I am so grateful for Michele’s attention, style, polish, and professionalism that got me to the finish line and elevated this project beyond my expectations.


  • I can see how much the course costs, but what will it actually cost me to publish my book?

    There are so many variables. Especially when it comes to editing and cover creating. But according to Kindlepreneur, the average cost to self-publish a high quality book is between $2000 - $4000.

  • After the course starts, how long will it be available for me to complete?

    I hope to keep it available to you for a full year. After that – let’s be honest – your heart isn’t into it.

  • What's your refund policy?

    We want to be fair but it's hard to know with a digital product whether it gets used. If you drop out before the class starts - full refund. After the first week - 75%. After the second week - 50%. Anything after that will depend on the circumstances.

  • If I sign up for VIP hand holding, will you do the work for me?

    I wish I could, but – no. I’ll walk you through it, talk you through it, answer your panicked phone calls - but in the end you have to do it yourself. Someday you’ll thank me.

  • Once I've published my book, will I be able to take it to an agent to be sold to a traditional publisher?

    Probably not. But you may have a better chance of landing an agent on your next book if this one does fairly well.

  • What happens if I want to change the interior or the cover or fix a typo?

    One of the best parts of self-publishing is that you can always correct mistakes, make changes, even switch to a new cover.

Maybe You Still have Questions

For many authors, deciding to publish their own book is a big decision. It means having confidence in yourself and your book. Once you've chosen that publishing path, it's good to share it with other people who will believe in you, too.
