About The Class

Build traction. Gain credibility. Reach new people.


Imagine opening your inbox to find new clients begging to work with you, opportunities to speak around the world, and members of media requesting interviews. That’s exactly what started happening when Tara Gentile began writing and publishing her ideas in small self-published books.

She went from hustling for work to having clients knocking down her door. She went from a small audience of fans to stepping on global stages. Writing and publishing a book—even a small one—can have that effect.

If you’ve been struggling to find the clients, credibility, and cash you really want from your business, writing and publishing a book can turn it all around.

It might sound daunting but after self-publishing 4 books, Tara has a simple process for turning your ideas into a book available for sale on Amazon or on your own website. You can become a published author and reap the benefits for your business in much less time than you think.

In this class, Tara's broken her process down into 5 easy steps:

  1. Choose your idea and create an outline
  2. Use what you’ve got to write your book fast
  3. Edit and format your book so you can distribute it on a number of platforms
  4. Publish your book on your own website or Amazon
  5. Market your book and get people reading it

Stop dreaming of becoming a published author someday and start making it happen.

As a bonus with purchase, you'll get The Digital Product Starter Kit that'll help you write, publish, market, and sell your eBook with maximum results. You'll get a free 30-day trial of ConvertKit's suite of email marketing tools, a free 90-day trial of the Selz.com Pro Plan, 25% off upgrades on Pressbooks, one 15% off code for any purchase at Creative Market, and one-month free access to Tara Gentile's Quiet Power Strategy Group.

    Such a brilliant course - perfect for my needs. Provides insight, inspiration and great wisdom. A great flow of topics to help us hit the road running. Is it okay to say the voice thing was difficult for me? 'Referral' ouch. But very worth sticking with, so packed with top-notch info and tips. Thanks to all the amazing guests! Thanks Tara, you're dynamite!!

    Thank you for sharing this information with us. It was fascinating to read. As an aspiring author, I often wondered "where to start, and how to publish an e-book." I think that this issue is of concern to almost every aspiring writer. I found your recommendations very useful. This is a great lesson that brings a lot of benefits. I will recommend it to my friends. I love when information is served briefly and accurately. Nothing superfluous only practical advice, point by point what to do to succeed. Thank you! All the best!

    Great!!! Thank you so much, Tara! I love how simple you make it looks like. I think that besides bringing the reality check about how blogging n the whole digital content are tied together you also did a kinda coaching! Lifting the spirit! Great pace to follow! Best wishes to you too. 💐
