Don’t miss the Tiny Book Magic!

Do you dream about writing a book?

​​But maybe you feel intimidated about the notion of writing a gigantic 300-page book?

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

​A Tiny Book is a short book (typically 30 to 70 pages) on any topic that excites you. 


Your Tiny Book could be a family cookbook that you create along with your kids, a collection of love letters to your spouse, a workbook filled with helpful tips for your clients, a journal, coloring book, memoir, children’s book, how-to guide, or any other kind of book you want to create.

The Tiny Book Course takes you from Point A

(“I want to write a book!”) 

to Point B

(“Oh my gosh, I did it! My book is done!”)


while keeping the process simple and joyful.

We guide you through every step—from choosing a topic, to outlining, writing, editing, interior layout, cover design, and self-publishing.


You want to sell your book online on Amazon and other retailers? We show you how to do that, too!


Do The Tiny Book Course, and discover that this journey is not as complicated as you think.

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

The Tiny Book Course includes 45 days of outstanding customer support.
Email anytime if you have a question, feel stuck, want to brainstorm, or need a pep talk.
Get a personal reply from an actual human being who cares about you and your book.
This level of support, alone, is worth the entire cost of the course.

What you gain from this course

Become an author. (Finally!)

We demystify the process for you, and show you that creating a book can be a lot simpler than you thought. We specialize in helping first-time authors get their book done.

Gain confidence in your writing.

If you struggle with perfectionism, self-criticism, overanalyzing, nitpicking, or just feel like your writing is never “good enough,” this course will help tremendously.

Experience the power of finishing.

You start lots of projects but rarely finish anything? This course helps you break out of that pattern. Learn how to set realistic goals, clear away distractions, and get things done. Carry these skills into other parts of your life, too.

Meet new writer friends and colleagues.

Writing can sometimes feel isolating, but you’re not doing this alone. Between your book coaches and fellow classmates, you’ve got hundreds of companions on this journey.

Bragging rights.

You know what? Writing a book is pretty darn cool. You’ll be able to show off your book to your family, kids, friends, colleagues, clients, complete strangers on the street…and rightfully so! You’re amazing!

Yes, we send you snail mail!

While the majority of this course happens online, we also send snail-mail to you! You get a Tiny Book Kit shipped to your door filled with stickers, checklists, a workbook, and more. So fun.
