About the Course

The Beginner’s Guide to Self-Publishing course is designed for the passionate beginner.

Someone who is looking for a comprehensive approach and wants to understand the self-publishing process.

You have a draft manuscript saved on your computer (or in your head) but haven’t had the time, energy, or resources to figure out how to pull it all together.

This course will help you take your manuscript out of draft mode and into a book that you can hold in your hands.

After taking this course, you will never look at a book in the same way again. You’ll notice a book’s margins, gutters, running headers, and chapter title sink and cover design. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about then good! You’ll learn a lot from this course.

This course won’t only help you self-publish, it will make you a better reader.

This course will also help you overcome the overwhelm that every self-publisher experiences when given a huge list of things to do without a place to start.

The first section, Getting Up to Speed on the Process, will help you overcome imposter syndrome by going over the basics of publishing and helping you clearly define your ideal reader.

The other sections: E-books, Paperbacks, and Launch it, Baby! walk you through each part of the self-publishing process to bring your book to life.

Every lecture (4.5 hours of instruction) simplifies the process by providing you a blueprint for creating a beautiful book that connects with readers.

The community provides accountability so that you stay on track to achieve your goals.

I want you to succeed and transition from student to self-publisher with this course.

Why Did I Create the Course?

I created this course to help the many friends and colleagues who have been asking me for help over the years. After working with 35 writers during the creation of the Knocked Up Abroad anthologies, many of them had questions about self-publishing their books.

Questions about the publishing process, formatting, tools, and software.

This course answers all of those questions and more.

I want more people to tell their stories in 2018 and I believe that together, we can elevate the quality of self-published books.


But is the course worth it?

This course has been tested and approved by a group of students—some of whom had zero experience and others who were published authors.

Here’s what the students are saying about it:

“I loved the course. It’s my first contact with self-publishing and this course was everything I needed. I feel very confident, and I didn’t waste my time searching for reliable information online. I’m ready to start working on publishing my book now.”

“With an uplifting tone, Lisa Ferland guides the beginner through clear lessons on how to self-publish. A perfect resource, her e-course provides all that is needed to boost the beginner’s confidence, making self-publishing an exciting next step.

“Don’t try self-publishing without taking this course. It will save you time, money and boost the level of professionalism tenfold.

It saves you time, money, a lot of hassle and a headache or two trying to figure it all out by yourself. Thank you for this super valuable, in-depth program, Lisa!”
