As a first-time self-publisher, I don’t know what I would have done without Carla’s Self-Publishing Boot Camp workshop as well as the Guide for Authors she provided for the students to take home. It’s invaluable! Comprehensive, user-friendly, and short enough that you can read it quickly and get on with publishing your book. Plus, Carla then became available to me via email when I needed advice about how to proceed–a huge boon in what can be such an isolating process. Thank you, thank you Carla! –Penny Rosenwasser, Ph.D., author, Hope into Practice, Jewish Women Choosing Justice, Despite Our Fears

Carla King did a fantastic job making the dream my husband and I had of self-publishing Full Circle a reality. We had a completed and edited manuscript but it seemed daunting to get the book properly formatted, uploaded and the drafts edited to various sites. She helped us to consider the proper distribution channels for my objectives and provided a true ‘soup to nuts” service for a new author. I am very grateful for her hard work and good counsel to make Full Circle a success.

Praise for Self-Pub Boot Camp Workshops
July 7, 2014
I wanted to drop you a note of gratitude. Without your great advice and guidance on how to self-publish, I would still be lost and most likely frustrated to the point of giving up. I had never pursued being an author or even writing a novel until very recently. Once I completed the work, I had no idea of what the next steps were or how to go about executing them. By chance, I saw that you were doing a seminar on Self-Publishing, which I honestly had not considered up until my visit to your website. I had heard horror stories of ridiculous costs and being taken advantage of one’s inexperience by a few bad seeds in the industry.
Once I made my through the wealth of knowledge in your website, newsletters and book I had the power to turn this novel into my destiny. Without your concise, step-by-step guidance and vetting of resources my novel would never have come into fruition.
Content Management Expert Andreas Ramos used the Self-Publishing Boot Camp Guide for Authors as his guide to self-publishing his Big Book of Content Marketing, reviewed in Forbes Magazine. Look what he has to say:
There are a number of books on digital publishing. Guy Kawasaki’s APE: How to Publish a Book (Nonoia Press, 2012) is a quick overview. A better resource is Carla King’s Self-Publishing Boot Camp Guide for Authors (SelfPubBootCamp.com, 2nd ed., 2013). Carla has written seven books and teaches courses on self-publishing. Her book explains the options for producing and distributing your book. Her book was my roadmap for the distribution strategy for this book. – Andreas Ramos, Content Market Expert, author of The Big Book of Content Marketing and How to Write a Book!: To Get More Opportunities and Improve Your Career
