Richard Wolf 
My Word Publishing 

According to the NY Times,
81% of authors want to
write a book. 

It could be the great American novel, or your family history, a collection of Nana's recipes, a children's book, or a book to create lead generation for your business. 

We can publish that book for you, BUT, we also know that not everyone wants our groovy help. So we have put together a 6-Week Self-Publishing Boot Camp to teach you how to professionally publish your book by yourself! 

At My Word Publishing part of our mission is to educate authors how to professionally self-publish their books without getting ripped off by predators. We also understand that not everyone wants our groovy help to manage their publishing project.

So we have put together a balls-to-the-wall Self-publishing Boot Camp that will give you all the step-by-step directions you’ll need to produce and publish your own book. We’ve held nothing back.
