How to



Book, eBook, 

or Audiobook.

Hi!  I'm Rebecca F. Pittman, bestselling author, radio and TV personality.  I want to teach you how to finally get that book you've slaved over out of the drawer and into the hands of thousands of readers.  It's easy, when you know how.  I'll teach you, with over 17 hours of step-by-step content you can watch at your own pace from the comfort of home.


Your book can be on Amazon and in bookstores within days!  Not years...DAYS!

And your bank account can grow just as fast!

    Let's Get Started!

Did you know that 82% of the population wants to write a book? That's a lot of people just like you who have this idea or passion that is dying to find its way onto the printed page and into the hearts of readers.  

Did you also know that only a handful of those 82% will actually take the steps to get their book into print?  That's like spending years obsessing over the car you've always wanted, shopping hundreds of dealerships, finally buying it and it's never left your garage.'re not going anywhere!

Most writers are afraid of failing.  What if I can't get published?  What if I DO get published and no one buys it?  What if they DO buy it and they write a bad review?  Shall we look at the flip side?  What if you DO get it published?  What if people DO buy it?  And, what if they LOVE IT and you go on to write more and more books?  Isn't that your dream?  Well, let me tell you...that's only a small part of what happens if you become a published author.  And it's all wonderful!

I was lucky enough to start out with a New York Publisher wanting my first book, How to Start a Faux Painting or Mural Business.  They published three more of my book titles before I discovered the world of self-publishing.  I jumped into that Publish On Demand pond and never looked back!  Now, with nine self-published books out there, I'm a bestselling author and appear regularly on radio and television programs, all because of the books.  I was invited to host my own TV Talk Show based on my book Troubleshooting Men, WHAT in the world do they want?  I'm also asked to lecture and consult.  I've made money co-editing others' books, and helping them create book covers and illustrations.  It's all here for you, and SO much easier than you can believe!  I also include interviews with famous authors who have been where you are and gone on to achieve their dreams.

I am offering something special with this course.  I will not only get you published, but I will promote your first book!  That's right.  You won't be thrown into the giant literary pond and left to fend for yourself.  I'll highlight your book on my website under my New Author Spotlight page that will be created just for my course graduates.  I will also post your book on my FB pages and send a Shout-Out cover piece in my newsletter.  For FREE!  I'm not just offering you a course.  I'm here to be your mentor and friend.  I want to see you succeed!

                                                 So...what's in the course? 

Self-Publish The Basics.jpg

HHow to Self-Publish Your Book, eBook, or Audiobook is a step-by-step guide to taking your manuscript to a completed book using self-publishing platforms like Amazon KDP and IngramSpark.  You will learn how to use their templates to either type or embed your manuscript into the necessary format needed.  I will teach you how to fill out the set-up for the publishing platforms, upload your manuscript, review it, and get it submitted.


    You will also learn how to create your own cover, or hire a professional.  We'll go over editing, creating the perfect title, using keywords and categories, getting reviews, linking up, what to charge for your book, the costs of publishing, and getting paid.  You will also learn why it's important to have a website, an author's page, and a blog.  Don't worry...I'll show you how!


    The course has separate categories for self-publishing your eBook.  You'll learn how to format, upload, review, price, and sell your eBook online.  Next, why are Audiobooks on the rise?  What equipment you can get to narrate your own book for under $300, or how to hire a narrator, and so much more.
