Over the last sixteen years I have written a truckload of self-help literature and helped perhaps hundreds of thousands of students achieve their writing dreams. You probably don't need me to remind you who I am and how I can help you. If you're reading this page, you're probably already convinced I'm the right person to help you master the self-help genre.

Best thing about self-help? 

Anyone can do it. Yes, even you. Actually, especially you!

If you're reading this page, you already possess the skills you need to make money writing self-help!

Yes, I believe that - because you wouldn't be here unless you'd already considered the genre and are actually thinking about what you could write about - right this minute! 

And that's the thing. You can write about anything you like, anything you're good at, interested in, want to talk about or have a passion for. The Self-Help market is big enough to support any kind of self-help book you want to write.

Here's what the course includes:

Why the self-help market is so lucrative and why you should start writing for it now. A brief history including my own experience of selling a million+ self-help books.
