“Dale did it again! His knowledge and teaching methods are right down awesome! There are so many things I didn't know about self-publishing until I took this course. I can't thank him enough for putting this together. There is a lot of information to soak in from here but Dale takes it slow and it's like he is actually sitting right beside you helping you along. I highly recommend this course to anyone, newbie or experienced. Thanks again, Dale. ”

“I had been following Dale on YouTube for quite some time before signing up for DIY Publishing. To be honest, I wasn't sure he would be able to top his YouTube content since it's always been so thorough and helpful. I was wrong. DIY Publishing delivered way more than I expected. I followed the information in the course and was able to get my new book to #1 New Release (both paperback and kindle) and generated over $300 in revenue in less than a week. Bottom line, the course works and payed for itself with one book in one week. I usually try and find something to critique when I leave reviews but I honestly can't think of anything to critique. If I could give 10 stars I would.”

“I loved this course! It was exactly what I needed and the layout was in sequential order. Just follow the modules step by step and anyone can get through the class. I do not like watching long videos, especially when they are full of fluff. Dale presented the coursework in short but factual videos. He stayed on track with useful suggestions and tips. I decided to go through the course a second time and I look forward to using it for each book that I write and publish. It's like having a roadmap to every destination! I recommend this course to EVERYONE who wants to become an author and self-publish.”

“Dale is teaching the ethical way to promote and grow your book/publishing business. He is very knowledgeable and is always willing to help answer any of the questions that I have. As a newbie to the field, this has been very important to me, and I greatly appreciate him for it! Furthermore, he is continually making updates to the course as the online publishing landscape changes! I would recommend this course to self-publishers as you will get tremendous value from an industry expert. After all, a course like this is to help shorten your learning curve. It provides guidelines and best-in-class strategies on writing, selling, and, and promoting your book from the experience of a veteran in the field. I would give it 10 stars if I could!”
