    One of the beautiful things about being a writer is the dream to get your book into the hands of your readers. If you want to make an impact and an income, self-publishing your book is easier than you think. It’s so much harder to write your book than it is to publish it. 
    We’re covering the five ways having a self-published book can make you impact and income.

That's why I created The Unlocked Author course where you'll self-publish your book from start to finish, following a simple, step by step process.
