Nancy West, Author of What Are You Waiting For?

If you feel the burning desire to become an author and share your message to the world, it takes a lot to make that happen. You’ll need resources and experts to help you get there. You’ll need direction and input and someone you can trust. You’ll need things you don’t even know you need if you are a first time author! If this sounds like you, I highly recommend connecting with Jenn T. Grace and her team at Publish Your Purpose Press. As a first time author, I ran the gamut of roadblocks and questions and not knowing where to turn. PYP's wisdom, tenacity and experience was exactly what I needed to make my dream a reality. My expectations run high and PYP delivered. Stop wasting time and make your book come alive! They will work with you throughout every step of your journey… and what a blast you will have!

As a student in our Academy, you'll receive:
Education Your Way

We understand that everyone learns a bit differently. Whether you prefer to watch a video, listen to audio or read a transcript, you’ll have options. You can:

  •  Download the video
  •  Download the PDF slides from the video
  •  Download the audio
  • Each worksheet comes in Word or Excel and PDF

You will also receive access to preferred vendor list consisting of branding experts, writers, editors, graphic designers, photographers, web developers, etc.

Accountability

The most common struggle first-time authors have is staying on track. Over the 14-weeks we work together we will keep you accountable. We understand publishing your book is just one of many items on your to-do list—we will help you stay focused on what is important to ensure you are maximizing your time and efficiency. 

Peer Support

During your 14-weeks you will be working alongside a small group of peers (there will be no more than 5 other students in your group) who are also publishing their books. Each week you will learn from one another. In between calls you’ll have access to the private Facebook Group to ask questions.

Upon graduation you’ll be invited into the Alumni Facebook Group for continued peer support, networking and collaboration.

Cathi Nelson, Author of Photo Organizing Made Easy

I set out to write a book and in spite of good intentions, I didn’t get very far. Then I enrolled in the Author's Academy. The PYP Team broke down the process, week by week into manageable and understandable tasks. It was also a great help to learn from other struggling authors like me. I had weekly calls, accountability, and an energetic team to help. This was the best decision I’ve made. Within months I had my first book published!

Session Dates & Times
February 5 - May 14, 2019

Each week you will receive session materials and guidance on what you should focus on during that particular week.

We meet one time per week on video using Zoom for one hour. While attendance for the live sessions is highly encouraged, recordings will be available if you are unable to attend. You can also submit your questions in advance via the Facebook Group if you know you won’t be able to attend.

Each week is a combination of topic-driven discussions, open Q&A and laser coaching to get you over any hurdles.

We have four time slots for you to choose from:

  • Tuesdays at 11:30a EST/10:30a CST/8:30a PST (starting Feb. 5th)
  •  Tuesdays at 2p EST/1p CST/11a PST (starting on Feb. 5th)
  •  Wednesdays at 6p EST/5p CST/3p PST  (starting on Feb. 6th)
  •  Thursdays at 6p EST/5p CST/3p PST  (starting on Feb. 7th)

Upon enrollment we will coordinate with you directly to find out your preferred day and time.

How much will it cost to publish my book?

In your journey of finding the right tools and resources to make this happen, you are going to find a lot of conflicting information. Our goal is to provide you the most practical and actionable information that is best suited for you.

We know that you are going to come across services that will charge you $500 to publish your book or $50,000 to publish your book—the key is knowing what you need and don’t need.

Your book is representative of you and your brand so we want to make sure it’s done right. In the Author's Academy, we discuss exactly what those areas are that you cannot afford to cut costs on. Our goal is to protect our authors and ensure they get the best product for the best price.

We developed the PYP Book Cost Blueprint that maps out how much you can anticipate paying to self-publish your book from start to finish. You can download it by clicking here.

Dr. Maysa Akbar, Author of Urban Trauma

I had been wanting to write a book for years and then found the Author's Academy. It helped me streamline my topic, focus on a timeline, and provided guidance in all aspects of the publishing process. The framework provided helped me to combine all my years of thought leadership in the field of race, psychology and my real life experiences, into one easy-to-read book. The Author's Academy helped make that possible—and can do the same for you.
