Do you dream about writing a book?

But maybe you feel intimidated about the notion of writing a gigantic 300-page book? Do you have a book idea, but feel overwhelmed by the self-publishing process? 

Writing a “Tiny Book” might be a great option for you.


A Tiny Book is a short book (typically around 30-80 pages) on any topic that excites you. 

Tiny Books are very powerful.

Big creativity in a small package. 


Tiny Books help you create something that you can be proud of. They help you say, “Wow! I can do it!” and fuel you to finish other projects.

This course will take you from brainstorming your book idea (or ideas!) to getting your book printed and available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers.


Experience the joy of holding the finished book in your hands.

Plus, you'll have the support to stay motivated and actually finish the book.

A Word from Our Participants

"Lindsey coached me through writing my first book, Habits That Heal. Her guidance and knowledge helped me break down the writing process into manageable pieces and kept me from feeling overwhelmed. She generously shares her years of experience to help budding authors turn their dreams into reality. I highly recommend taking advantage of the Tiny Book Course!"

-Linda Barney, author of Habits That Heal

"I am so incredibly grateful to Alex and Lindsey and their Tiny Book Workshop. I was able to see that a “tiny book” is just as valid and powerful as 300 pages. I’ve now completed my first book and am getting ready to send it out into the world. People will read my words because they helped me complete just one small book, one small part at a time. Without the workshop, I would still be trying to finish chapter one of a book that the world would never see."

-Brianne Grebil, author of Love Doesn't Care if You Forget

"I have always wanted to write a book, but the actual HOW of it always felt so elusive, regardless of how many blogs or books I've read.  Working with Lindsey is one of the best choices I have made, because she knows exactly what to do, and more importantly, she knows exactly how to teach you what to do in a clear, concise, step-by-step and FUN way!  I went from having "no idea" how to publish a book to actually writing and publishing my book, as well as learning the ins and outs of book promotion.  I can add "published author" to my list of achievements, thanks to Lindsey." 

-April Reigart, author of Dinner Rush
