Build Your Platform and Become a Catholic Author

The Catholic publishing and social media niche is different from the general, mainstream world. Strategies that work outside the Catholic niche often fall flat--or even worse--when tried inside this ecosystem.

But you as a Catholic still need to build a great platform, one that reaches a large audience with a great message that is true, good, and beautiful. You can no longer just write solid blog post after blog post and trust that eventually people will find you.

In this course, you will get a jump-start over 99% of other Catholics trying to write a book and get it published. You will skip past the mistakes that others like me spent years making and get right to the practices that are essential and that work well.

By the end of the course, you will know exactly what you need to do to build your platform and connect with other Catholics to get noticed and how to give your book the best chance of getting published, or, if self-publishing, to make your book successful. This course is the difference between selling 7 copies versus 7,000 copies of your book.

This course includes hours of video presentations, the presentation slides for reference, the Ultimate Catholic Guide to Publishing Your Book, and examples of a non-fiction book proposal and a query letter.
