Group Workshops & Self-Paced Online Courses

I have found great satisfaction in leading workshops and creating online courses. I make them relevant and achievable with specific goals and action-oriented tasks. I started running workshops in 2005 and since then have helped thousands of writers achieve their goals. I'd love to help you meet your writing and publishing goals. Got questions? Need direction? Don't know where to start? Schedule a free 15-minute consult.

Travel Writing Community Intensive

June 15 - Sept 15, 2021

$137 or three payments of $47

A group workshop to share, critique, and discuss your stories for publication.

Join my Travel Writing Community Intensive to workshop your adventure travel stories of all kinds with other writers. Workshop your blog posts, articles, and book chapters. Newbies welcome!

This is an add-on to the Travel Writing course. (If you've taken the Your Moto Diaries workshop, you've already got it.)

If you are not yet enrolled, do that first, and then add on the 6/15-9/15 workshop.

Don't be shy! This workshop is for beginners and experienced writers and feedback is thoughtful, respectful, and of high-value.

Your story may also be included in the anthology of stories I'm putting together in an ebook.


THIS IS THE FIRST STEP TO FINDING BETA READERS AND BUILDING YOUR BOOK MARKETING STREET TEAM.

I'm interviewing writers for the October list-building workshop now. Please schedule a call.

List Building for Writers

SEPT 27 - OCT 27, 2021

$249

30-DAY RESULTS-ORIENTED WORKSHOP

You know you need to build your email list; but how?

I've developed a system that will help you find readers and influencers, deliver the content they want, keep in communication with them, and have fun doing it.

For bloggers and journalists, the goal is to discover and deliver the most highly-desired content to attract even more readers.

For authors, the goal is to grow a readership all the way up to book launch when your followers will be happy to give you five-star reviews.

I'm interviewing writers for the October list-building workshop now. Please schedule a call.


BEST-SELLER BOOK MARKETING BEFORE YOU FINISH WRITING & DEFINITELY BEFORE YOU PUBLISH

THIS IS MY NUMBER ONE MOST POPULAR COURSE

The Foundational Step to Successful Book Marketing

Find out what agents and acquisitions editors know about the chances of your book's success. 

This foundational step to book marketing helps you figure out who your reader is, what category your book belongs in, and helps you start connecting with other authors in your genre. 

  • Find your "comps" or comparable books. 
  • Connect with other authors.
  • Find out where books authors like you are getting media and create your own media list.
Research Your Way to a Best Seller Course

Do this instead of paying thousands of dollars for expensive book publicity services after your book is launched. That simply doesn't work!

YOU'LL BE HAPPY YOU DID!

I've walked hundreds of authors through this process, and provided templates and examples to help you do it at your own pace.

Don't finish your book before you have finished this step.


Set Up Your Publishing Business

Self-paced ONLINE course

Publish from a position of power

These days, many authors choose to self-publish. It's no wonder! When you maintain control, you make all the decisions. Your book will never be backlisted unless you decide to backlist it. You can change the cover. You can change the title. You can change how it’s distributed. You can change the metadata. You can experiment with marketing strategies. You can bundle it with your other books or with books by other authors. It’s all up to you.

Find out how to purchase ISBNs, create a publishing imprint, get answers to your legal questions, your printing options, sales tax requirements, and much much more.



Self-Publishing for Memoirists 

90-MINUTE WORKSHOP

ONLY $69

The Steps You Need to Take to Successfully Self-Publish Your Memoir in 2021

Zoom Class with Carla King and Linda Joy Myers

Many authors believe that publishing your book independently is simply about getting your book designed, formatted, and uploaded to stores, so it’s no wonder the average self-published book sells only 200 copies. 

You can do better by following a proven process to find your community of readers and peers, to get your book into as many hands as possible, to build a platform, and to follow a launch plan.

This overview workshop is affordably priced to get you the information you need to know so you don't make heartbreaking or expensive mistakes.


Your Moto Diaries

small group workshop

8 weeks

$249

Whether you’ve traveled around the world or ridden around the neighborhood, you have stories to tell.

This is a limited-enrollment, small group workshop is for writers who ride on 2 or 4 wheels (heck, maybe even 6 or 8!).

You write, or wish to write a blog, articles, a travel memoir, or all three! 


Build Your Online Platform

Self-paced ONLINE course 

Build your email list, create a lead magnet, a website, and engage in social media

Marketing begins now, at the very start of your publishing efforts, and your website is the foundation of that marketing effort.

Your website is a storefront and a scrapbook, a place to attract, inform, connect, collect, and communicate. Your website is “You-Central.” Don't dread creating a platform.

This is the place you connect with readers and build a tribe. It can be fun!
