NEW: Peace Over Panic Group

We have started a new Facebook group called, "Peace Over Panic" to help support, encourage and serve our online community during these uncertain times. It will be completely FREE and a way we can give back during this time.

✅ Join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/521368602111956/

We have a free gift for you.

One of the most common things we see with new writers is that they are confused about how publishing works and the steps required.

Therefore, I drew out a visual Publishing Map to help explain and simplify the process. And the members in our academy for writers LOVE it!

It helps eliminate the overwhelm and shows you the exact steps you need to take next. Therefore, we wanted to share it with you too.
