DREAM OF WRITING A BOOK?

Studies show 82% of people dream of writing a book.
The benefits of writing a book are numerous:

✓ Earn passive income

✓ Spread your message

✓ Experience new opportunities

✓ Travel to interesting places

✓ Meet new people

PUBLISHING OPTIONS

Most aspiring authors think traditional publishing and self-publishing are the only ways to achieve their dream. Both of these publishing models have major drawbacks:

Traditional Publishing
is NOT the answer

  • Rejects "unsolicited manuscripts" (books without literary agent representation)
  • Requires you to have a big platform (social media following, radio/TV shows, email lists)
  • Expects you to do most of the marketing
  • Owns your content and controls your title, cover design, pricing, etc.
  • Pays you 10–12% of net sales only after you pay back your advance in full
  • Makes a 100% mark-up profit for every author copy you buy (average of $5 or more per copy)

Self Publishing
is NOT the answer

  • Often produces an inferior product
  • Gets rejected by brick-and-mortar bookstores
  • Doesn't produce hardcover versions of the book
  • Won't let you leverage a pre-sale strategy (critical for earning bestseller status)
  • Prevents you from ordering adequate influencer and advance reader copies
  • Expects you to be an expert on cover design, interior design, back ads, ISBNs, barcodes, distribution, pricing, etc.

After writing six traditionally published books and doing most of the marketing himself, Kary Oberbrunner discovered a powerful process that helped him turn each of his next four books into six-figure businesses.

It's the same model that helped him create 18 streams of income around each of these books, both fiction and non-fiction. It allowed him to quit his day job and become a full-time writer.  He gained maximum profits, control, and distribution.

LET US HELP YOU

"Over the past 15 years, over 250,000 of people have asked me for help on how to write, publish, and market their books. After years of focusing exclusively on my own writing career, I decided I could ignite more souls by designing the exact program I wish I’d had when I started.

"Author Academy Elite would have saved me thousands of hours and tens of thousands of dollars. This is why my team and I created this program. If done correctly, a published book will increase your influence, impact, and income. But if done incorrectly, you’ll end up with a garage full of books. Let us show you the right way to publish."

—Kary Oberbrunner

WHAT AUTHORS ARE SAYING

WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD

"I wanted to publish a book for over a decade. Now I have! If the program cost double the amount, it would still be worth its weight in gold. I did my research on many other programs. If there were an award for stellar servant leadership, I would give it to Kary, hands down.

"The Igniting Souls Tribe is a group of rock stars, encouraging you every step of the way. In the middle of life's ups and downs, you need a family that believes in you. These principles will take you to the next level successfully and authentically. The results speak for themselves."

—Bamidele Adenipekun, Swansea, United Kingdom

A COLLEGE DEGREE IN MARKETING

"Kary retains zero profit from your success. What he offers is the equivalent of a college degree in marketing and publishing. The material is sound, solid, and up-to-date.

"Plus, you have lifetime access. It should cost twice as much for all the value."

—Nanette O'Neal, Bethel, PA

INVALUABLE INFORMATION

"I've learned an invaluable amount of information about everything related to the marketing of my book. I've also gained so much clarity about who I am marketing to.

"Seeing all the videos, step-by-step guides, timelines, and tactics, I can easily imagine that without this training I would have wasted another decade burning out on my dream. This program illuminated what was once very complex."

—Ry Edwards, Minneapolis, MN

ALMOST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE

"Kary Oberbrunner gives beyond measure. And the Igniting Souls Tribe is a family who stands by each other.

"It is almost too good to be true...but it is true. I would do this program again without hesitation. It has been the best investment I have ever made."

—Petula Habbershaw, Essex, England
