The Author Academy
Free! For Girls Ages 10-100
Saturdays in November
Pensacola Downtown Library
Work with instructors hands on as they personally lead you through planning, writing, formatting and self publishing your educational reference book, guided journal or how-to guidebook.
Get weekly assignments and motivation each day to ensure your progress. Join in on group chats to make the most of your time in the cohort and receive additional support.
We start by identifying what type of book would be best for your goals, who your target market will be and what business to business opportunities you can create with your finished product.
We create an outline of your book, and begin filling in the manuscript template given to you via email. (You will need WORD. If you do not have word on your computer, you can use a trial, or pay monthly.) Manuscripts are pre-programmed to be read by printing programs to automatically update page numbers, chapter names ect. You can not make a manuscript in canva. You will need word!
We then work diligently each day to complete writing. Your portions are due each morning by 8am. This keeps you on track with the group. Yes! You can complete the writing in 2 weeks.
Time to create your Author Blurb, Book Bio and get your author photo together. Don’t have a photo? We will be walking through how to create one at home, what makes a good photo, and tips for editing. We will also be completing book covers and getting ready to upload.
Proofreading, wrap up and upload preparation. All of the loose ends are tied and we walk through the proper way to set up your book in amazon, as well as begin promotion and marketing. Once your book is ready for upload, we choose the best time to release for your book.
To optimize the amount of time we have together, only certain types of books are supported for classes in this format.
