"The Fluky Meeting That Took Me From Being Broke and Unemployed to a 6-Figure Self-Publishing Powerhouse"
 
Dear Awesome Author,

I'm going to share some ugly details about my past life with you.

In 2004, one year after entering the world of publishing working for someone else, I found myself not being paid anymore. Nothing. Nada. For 3 whole months.

After three months with no pay, I began struggling to make ends meet. 

My bills were negative $300 (that’s -$300) every month. That's not counting the overdraft fees. The hole just kept getting deeper.
 
My parents bought my groceries just so I could eat and I used my credit cards to pay my electric bill.
 
Feeling lost and ashamed, I started looking for another job.

At about the same time, I used what I learned to start my own publishing and graphic design company on the side.

The problem is, searching for a job is a full-time job on its own. So my publishing company (if you could even call it that) was going nowhere fast.

Nothing was working for me.

By the time I filled out my 53rd job application, I’d had enough.

I just didn't care anymore.
 
 I walked into the interview that day in ratty khaki pants and an old, beat-up black t-shirt.
 
Unfortunately, I still got the job. It was part-time at a fitness center.

What they didn't know is I was chronically ill. 

This means holding down even a part-time job, especially at a place like a fitness center, was extremely difficult. 

Even worse, my useless college degree was costing me an arm, leg, and my spleen to pay back in student loans. 

My car was constantly breaking down. 

And I was quickly running out of room on the credit cards.

I knew there had to be a better way, so I used the last few dollars on one of my credit cards to hire a budget financial adviser I found online.
 
Unless you increase your income,
there’s nothing more you can do...
 
That's what he told me.

We were sitting at my rickity K-Mart kitchen table looking over my budget when he told me, "Kristen, you’re doing everything you can. Unless you increase your income, there’s nothing more you can do.”

A budget "financial manager" in a ratty old suit told me this.

It was like a kick in the teeth.

Talk about losing all hope.

Because of my poor health, I was already worn out working a mere 15 hours per week, then on top of that I was coming home and working long hours trying to get my publishing business off the ground. 

Plus, I was stuck in a mortgage I couldn’t get out of without severe penalties. And yet, I was looking at foreclosure.

This went on for TWO MISERABLE YEARS.
 
That's when it happened… 
 
In 2006, the opportunity showed up to move to another state.

It was a chance for a fresh start.

I immediately hunted down every local networking event I could in my new area. 

I bartered graphic design services for entry to conferences and trade show tables, and I was out 3-4 evenings each week attending events, rubbing shoulders, signing new book design clients, and selling books.

It was exhausting. But it finally started to pay off!

Money from those services and my book sales went from a mere trickle to a steady flow. (It wasn't quite a pour yet, that didn't happen until later... and I'll share those secrets with you in just a minute...)

I had all the time I wanted to keep building my business and publish more books.
 
Then something miraculous happened… a
fluke meeting with ONE desperate author.
 
I was happily running my own little publishing business, publishing and marketing my own books, and not touching other people’s projects anymore.

But word from all those events spread and I had my first stalker.

John (not his real name) was a desperate author. 

He BEGGED me to teach him my ways. 

“Train me,” he said. “You don’t have to do the book for me, just teach me how to do it myself. I don’t want to make all the mistakes and repeat horror stories I’ve read online.”

This went on for what seemed like forever.

I finally relented and agreed to teach him. 
 
That ONE fluke meeting changed
my life (and John's) forever.
 
John's business changed literally overnight. 

YOURS CAN TOO! Because once you have one of these systems up and running you’ve got a GREAT ”problem” on your hands:

 > 1. You can either build out a back-end for it (your own products, high ticket items, coaching programs, seminars, etc.)

 > 2. You can let it run automatically unscathed, putting money in your pocket everyday from book sales.

 > 3. You can simply start another business in a different niche, and make money in as many other ways as you choose.

Now you’re in the ninja zone!

(Important: I have a few requirements for these businesses, I set them up in a very unique way, and you'll learn everything you need to know in the 4-Module Training.)

This building process is what Instant Self-Publishing Ninja is all about. Screw one of these steps up, and your entire system will be out of whack.
 
  •  Are you overwhelmed with all the publishing options available, and as a result you find yourself struggling to even finish your book?
  •  Do you wish you had a step-by-step formula to get your book out of your head, onto Kindle and in print too, then selling everywhere like gangbusters?
  •  Do you longingly look at books on bookstore shelves and know that someday your book will be there, too?
It’s time to stop just dreaming of your someday and make that day happen starting TODAY!
 
As you know, things have changed a lot for me since 2006.

I even had my biggest month ever in April of this year. (That's a far cry from a negative $300 bank account when I started in 2004.) 

I’ve run a vanity self-publishing press, a traditional publishing company, a self-publishing services agency, a publishing consulting firm, and started over 50 publishing companies for other people as well as published over 200 books and e-books. 

If I can do it - YOU CAN DO IT!

And in the last few years I’ve trained nearly 10,000 authors like you how to successfully write, publish and market their books.
 
It worked for me. It worked for "John".
And it will definitely work for you, too!
 
The BEST part?

You can do everything I'm about to show you from the comfort of your own home - there isn't expensive overhead or the need for employees.

And you have the potential to earn more money than you ever dreamed possible, without any of the fuss or headaches of a typical business. 

There's also no limit to your earning potential. And since the market is so vast and so large almost everyone can do this.There is plenty of room for anyone who is serious to carve out their piece of the $33 Billion per year (and growing) pie.
 
Why am I willing to pull back the curtain and teach you the untold inner secrets about book writing, creating, publishing and marketing that I have NEVER shared before?
 
My students have been begging me to create an all-inclusive self-publishing course that covers the gamut from writing and publishing to creating an easy-to-implement marketing plan. 

In fact, like John did so many years ago, my students have been begging me to teach them so often I can no longer refuse!

I'm on a mission to help authors, like you, stop eating Ramen noodles and live the life of your dreams! Publishing is more than my business, IT'S MY LIFE!

I'll give you 3 reasons why I'm opening these doors now...
 
Reason #1: I’m tired of seeing fly-by-night
“I-published-a-book-so-you-can-to-experts” giving bad advice to authors just to make a buck.
 
It’s time a REAL publishing ninja steps up and gives you everything you need to know to make your author dreams come true, not break the bank, AND give you the safety and peace of mind that you won’t be doing anything that could destroy your career as a successful author.
 
Reason #2: I'm fed up with seeing authors desperately taking action on bad advice and getting into trouble with Amazon’s Terms of Service and the law.
 
It breaks my heart when authors come to me, after taking somebody else's course, asking me how to get "un-banned" from Amazon.

You can't. Once you're banned, it's over. If you get banned you just lost your #1 channel to sell and market your books.

All they ever wanted was to live their dreams.

It's just not fair.
 
Reason #3: I'm tired of seeing authors
like you give up on their dreams.
 
It almost happened to me, I almost gave up.

Because I’m sick of all the bullshit, the runaround, and the so-called “instructors” who throw their limited knowledge your way, then you never hear from them again and can’t get access to them for support, questions, and advice when something goes wrong.

You deserve better than what those other people can offer.

Kind words from clients...
 
"Of course, #CautiousMoi had to think about this course overnight... but then I had a brainstorm. Partying with Kristen Joy for 4 days is a #NoBrainer and I joined in. Plus, overcoming my procrastination, perfectionism, fear of failure, I think I have finally decided on #TheBook out of all my brainstorms. I know if I can get over the first book hurdle, it will be smooth sailing!" ~H. Yoder

"This may sound corny, but The Book Ninja has changed my life! The courses have given me the courage to be an author, which I never had the courage to be before. Thanks for your time, help and encouragement." ~B. Horn

"Kristen's course got me moving forward. I learned concrete steps to publishing my book and then did so. It gave me a way to keep jumping back into my publishing plan until my book was ready, and it's out now and helping people all over the world! Thank you for getting me motivated and giving me a plan!" ~A. L'Amour

"I can't thank Kristen Joy enough for being such a great trainer and mentor (and Ninja!). I've published 58 books since I took one of her courses while battling cancer last year. I'm expanding into fiction and most are under my pen name. It has helped keep me sane! Thank you Kristen for offering ongoing opportunities for training!" ~L. De La Cruz

"Kristen gives me continued 'get-off-your-seat-and-do-this-thing' inspiration." ~J. Kilgore

"I got derailed by a negative editor several years ago. Kristen has reignited my passion by teaching me that I can be published and profitable. I realize now that this is what I was created to do." ~C. Suarez
 
This Training Program Is Designed For YOU.
 
By investing in this course you'll get the 4 Jam-Packed modules, over 15 hours' worth of intense training, and you’ll also get the opportunity to join one of my coveted online communities and hang out with me and other publishing ninjas. 

In that community you’ll get advice, feedback, support from your fellow classmates and myself. 

That’s not something you can get from other online course websites.
 
"It's nice to have a group of people who all share a common goal and interest and who inspire, encourage, motivate and help each other achieve that goal. The reward of seeing each others' accomplishments is an inspiration in itself and none of us would be here if it wasn't for Kristen, who is our biggest help and inspiration. Thank you, Kristen!" ~ D. Pickering
 
Look, I know what it takes to be a successful author and publisher.

It’s time for you to get the most complete publishing training you’ll ever see from The Book Ninja Dojo.

But you must hurry, because...
 
Time is Running Out - Even As You Read This!
 
Sure I could very well start a coaching program or workshop based on these materials you are seeing right now, and charge $1,997 per head. Really. A lot of marketing gurus are doing that today, some charging even in the $5,000 - $10,000 per head for their marketing secrets!

Fortunately, it won't cost you anywhere near that amount.

BUT, HERE'S THE CATCH (and it's a BIG one):

I can only open these doors right now to so many people. So anytime I feel there are ENOUGH PEOPLE in the "Instant Self-Publishing Ninja" course, I will STOP accepting new students... 

Then I will spend all my time doing what I can to MAKE THEIR DREAMS COME TRUE for the lucky students who were the first to get in. 

Make sure YOU are one of the lucky people. 

You MUST GET IN NOW, before this opportunity is gone forever!
 
Isn't it time for YOU to call the shots?
 
To carry on life as usual means your job will always stink. You can't avoid seeing the faces you despise every morning you wake up and go to work. And at the end of it all, you will always wonder if things could have gotten better.

Or you can decide right now to start making a courageous change today and put behind the mediocre life you only knew, and exchange it for a life of freedom and unlimited possibilities?

Make sure YOU are among the first to get in on this, before we LOCK THE DOOR on this training forever...

"Two big things. One is the support the group gives to each other. No negatives, just good ol' fashioned critics that are very helpful.

Answers to Frequent Questions...
 
How long will I have access to this course?
All The Book Ninja courses come with "lifetime access." This means as long as Kristen is in the publishing business, you'll have access. If something should ever happen to the business, Kristen's staff will make sure you have ongoing access to everything you purchased.
I signed up, but haven't gotten my logins or access email yet. What do I do?
Please allow our system about 15 minutes to send you the login welcome email. Also check your SPAM, Promotions tab (Gmail only) and any blockers you may have on your email servers. If you use Yahoo, Hotmail or MSN, you may not receive our emails, so please write to [email protected] and include your phone number and/or Skype ID so our super-ninja Support Team can get in touch with you and get you the trainings.
How is this course different from other self-publishing courses?
Most self-publishing courses we've seen barely scratch the surface of what's necessary to be a successful authorpreneur. We're not in the business of training authors, we're in the business of raising authorpreneurs who want to actually be profitable in publishing. Therefore Kristen is deep-diving into the vast world of publishing, using all her dozen+ years' of professional industry experience and packing as much as possible into these 10 training sessions.
How is this course different from other Book Ninja courses?
First, this course is bigger than any other course Kristen has ever created. Second, even with over 15 hours of training, it's impossible for her to teach you everything she knows and has discovered in the last dozen+ years. And third, while a few core points may be similar to other Book Ninja courses, they're presented from a different perspective in this course, so you're sure to still learn a LOT of new material.
In your letter above you said you knew publishing secrets, but you weren't doing well financially. Could you explain why?
Because there's a big difference between knowledge and taking action. At that time I was a college grad with a fledgling business. I had plenty of knowledge and unlike many newbies I didn't want to give away that knowledge for free or very little because that's the biggest mistake newbies can make (& I knew that). So my struggle was in connecting the dots between the knowledge I had and the cash I needed. And I'll add that I made a ton of mistakes that I could have bypassed if I had someone to coach me or a course like Instant Self-Publishing Ninja. But much of what I'm teaching in that course was brand new back then (or didn't exist yet), so finding a coach was nearly impossible. That's a huge reason why I do what I do today. 

Remember, that time in my life was 12 years ago. I was a different person then. And the fact is I actually did turn my rising credit card debt into a multi six-figure publishing empire. Any "guru" who tells you that happens in the first year is full of shit & probably broke themselves. ;-)
