Become a book publisher!


The basics of publishing print and eBook titles without getting ripped off, based on Michael’s popular book Write, Regardless!

This course is for those who…

  • Can write. I don’t believe anyone can teach us how, but all writers can learn how to write better articles, short stories, novels, journalism, non-fiction, poetry and memoir, and to enter the publishing industry at the right time and in the right shape
  • Want to create a place for readers to access their entire body of work
  • Have an ’embarrassing’ manuscript tucked away in a desk drawer or buried on their computer desktop, and want to turn it into a viable publication
  • Want to learn how to approach traditional publishers and literary agents before trying self publishing
  • Want to learn about plotting better story arcs, copy editing and proofreading their own work, designing effective book covers and marketing books independently
  • Want to learn how to set up an effective social media platform without spending much money
  • Are considering self publishing
  • Want to self publish without getting ripped off
  • Want to manage the self-publication process themselves, and learn how to communicate effectively with publishing support creatives such as editors and designers, in order to get the best finished product
