Don’t just write your book this November. Publish it, sell the hell out of it, and take home 90% of the profits. 


Learn how, with virtual guidance from Waylon Lewis every step of the way.

Get access to two live seminars with Waylon to keep you inspired, informed, and supported through each stage of your book-writing process.

If you've ever wanted to write a book, it's time.


Why now? Because you have help, tips, and guidance, from someone who cares and has been through it, and found a way to do so not only successfully but ethically in a crowded, confusing, often desperate publishing world.

What's inside the course?

Writing your Book.

The tools you need to start—and finish—your book. Before you put your first word down on paper, we'll help you answer: why are you writing? How can it connect? Can this be my living? What's my voice? Who's my community? Waylon will walk you through a wealth of tools, lists, how-to's, community, writing exercises and tips to get you from here to there.

Publishing your Book.

How successful, independent publishing works. If you want your story told, we'll teach you how to do it with full control, expert advice, and comparatively huge profits per sale. Understand the different pieces of publishing a book, from choosing a printer to creating a cover design to independent distribution.

Selling your Book.

Build an audience & promote your book—organically. Serialize (it's magic for building a community ready to buy). Crowdfund. Book tour. Eco shipping. Learn how to reach as many readers as possible without being used by Amazon—and take home 90% of the profits from your work, instead of 10%. Say that out loud, twice.

out of his book.


Things I would like to do with You is now on its third printing.

This book is now (we’re told by the owner) the best-selling book, ever, at our local independent Boulder Book Store. That’s a big bookstore, and a big honor.

This book was rejected for distribution by Ingram, the monopoly of book distribution, and we’ve never pushed it on Amazon, though it’s generally available there. Thanks to our Kickstarter fans and benefactors, our first edition of 2,000 books sold out fast.

Thanks to our Elephant readers and Instagram fans, the next 20,000 sold steadily. And now, thanks to you, we continue to reprint what has become, it seems, a timeless, yet timely classic. 

Interested, but not ready?


We'll keep you in the loop about mindful offerings, free events, and new course releases.
