And How To Keep Your Book Royalties Rolling In... for 2016 and Beyond

You Can Build a Business and an Authority Brand Around Writing Books

Hi, I'm Steve Scott, a multiple best-selling author who has built a full-time business around self-publishing books, with over 60 books and counting. I'm also the co-founder of the Authority Self-Publishing podcast and owner of

I struggled with my first few books, but once I cracked the Amazon code I've been able to create a steady income around my books. In fact, over the last 2 years I've earned over $550,000 from book sales alone. From these experiences, I've learned a number of hard lessons about what it takes to build a business around writing books. These are the lessons that we share inside the Authority Pub Academy.

You Can Build a Platform and a Rapidly Growing Audience Of Raving Fans

Hi, I'm Barrie Davenport, author of 10 self-published books and founder of the top-ranked personal development blog, Live Bold and Bloom, with over 400,000 monthly readers.

When I first started self-publishing, I was knee-deep in raising 3 kids and building my online business. It never occurred to me that I would have the time or ability to become a bestselling author and increase my income by 30% with my books. Steve's crazy success lit a fire under me to pursue self-publishing. He mentored me and shared his extensive knowledge, and I credit my publishing success to his method. 

Overwhelmed By What It Takes To Be Successful As A Self-Published Author?

This is the struggle we hear from so many aspiring and even established authors. You’re drowning in information and advice. You have no idea where to begin. You get bogged down on one part of the process and feel stuck — so stuck, you might stop trying altogether.

Sometimes it feels like you’re just going around in circles without any specific, actionable direction that leads you to your goal, a published book with lots of sales.

We’ve definitely felt this way too. The self-publishing process IS confusing, and the ongoing changes with Amazon make you want to tear your hair out.

When you search the web for answers about writing, publishing and marketing, you get conflicting advice from so called "experts" who've only published a couple of books....and that was years ago.  Who the heck do you trust to get help?

If you're like a lot of writers, it can be overwhelming to try to figure out all the steps needed to have a successful book launch. And you've probably wondered where to go to find the resources and solutions that show you exactly what to do... without wasting your time.

What If You Had A One-Stop Solution To Help You Build Your Self-Publishing Book Business?

If all we had to do for success was simply write our books then it would be much easier... But figuring out the whole process is not easy...

And wading through all the outdated online information will lead you down the wrong road...and leave you drowning in confusion...who has that kind of time to waste?

Between us, we’ve had years of trial and error, learning what works and what doesn’t work in getting our books sold...

We wish we had someone who led us by the hand when we first started -- or at least someone who told us what NOT to do. 

That's why we created a one-stop resource  to help writers streamline the whole self-publishing process... 

The Only Place to Learn Authority Self-Publishing is in Our Course

It's not a vague or generic technique that's floating around out there in the world… Steve Scott invented it, we've refined it together, and we use the Authority model to build our own businesses.

And over the past 3 years, we have removed the "guesswork" associated with all the essential steps in self-publishing. We've created systems that work so well we simply pull the levers for writing, publishing and marketing bestselling books.

The Authority Pub Academy course that Steve and Barrie teach is the most powerful self-publishing course on the market today.

Tom Shreiter Author of Ice Breakers

I was looking for an author like Steve Scott who could give me advice to help me succeed in self-publishing…and who personally sold a lot of books. I didn’t want to waste any more time getting the wrong advice. Since flying to New Jersey to spend the day learning from Steve, I have earned over $150,000 from book sales revenue. I'm living proof that if you follow the authority formula taught in this course, you’ll see great results.
