The Process WORKS

What gives me the right to leave this 5-star review? I’ll tell you:
I followed Chandler Bolt’s process for self-publishing my book 6 years ago. Not only did I make my way to the bestseller list on Amazon, but I gained authority in my field, booked podcasts, spoke at events, and made over $15k in book sales (which wasn’t even the end goal!)
Chandler only teaches what he himself is able to achieve because he truly believes if he can do it, anybody can. I never imagined I’d be where I am today, but by working the process, it paid off in dividends. If you have a book inside you, now is the time to bring it out.
Chandler’s system works.

Thank You!

Chandler Bolt is a person who really cares about others. He writes from his heart and speaks from experience, not theory, as he also states in his book. This book gives me the courage, motivation and know how of how to write my first book. He makes writing a book very "do-able".

A must read!

If you have had the dream of publishing a book, consider purchasing this audiobook or any version of the book. Chandler gives a step-by-step process on how to make your dream come true of publishing a book. Directions are very clear and easy to follow. He even includes different websites that you can use and refer to using in your book needs. With this book, I feel that the audiobook and a paper version are important to have to make the process successful. If Chandler comes up with another version, I will definitely purchase it.

The ONLY book on self-publishing you need!

For anyone who is curious or has dabbled in self-publishing this is the ONLY book you need. The level of detail and creative advice in this book is amazing. I have read other books on self-publishing and nothing else was as helpful as Published. This book is read by the author and you can hear the enthusiasm for helping authors in his voice. You will not be disappointed. This listen is worth your time as an aspiring author!

Get this book!

This book gave us the foundation and steps to write our 10-time award-winning bestselling book (Redefining Normal: How Two Foster Kids Beat The Odds and Discovered Healing, Happiness and Love)! We wouldn't be where we are today without this book and his course!

Self Publishing School, but way cheaper!

I released my first book a year ago—available on Audible ;-) and I really debated applying for SPS that Chandler runs. I just didn’t have the funds available to make it a reality. I listened to all the SPS podcasts, but never got the book for some reason… until just recently. I should have gotten it 1.5 years ago, but as I close in on the 1 year anniversary I am energized by his book to relaunch my own using several of the strategies. I’m also starting the process of writing a second book… I will probably go through Published several times to keep me moving forward. I still should do SPS, but when he’s giving away all this knowledge it’s *almost* like getting it for free. I cannot recommend this book (or the podcasts) enough!

Great for new authors ready to publish

Lots of great, actionable info in here! Brings you from idea through launch process. I’m definitely looking forward to finishing my first draft and implementing the rest of the guidance.

Step by Step from Idea to Bestseller

Excellent guide for taking your book from idea (including finding the right idea) through the writing and editing process then getting it Published with a strong launch and continued sales. Also enjoyed the author's own clear and energetic narration.

Unfortunate

I loved this book but there was one major problem. Referencing the pdf the whole way through was great but there is no pdf. I’ve emailed a number of times but nothing. Such a shame
