The Full-Time Author Program for non-fiction authors
Stop chasing book sales and wasting time on marketing that doesn't work.
Instead, learn how to stop hustling on social media and wasting thousands on ads by creating a simple and easy system that pays you a 4-5 figure monthly salary while generating a never-ending stream of ideal readers that queue to buy your books, digital products, or services.
BUT you're not ready to invest thousands of dollars into equipment setup, countless hours into creating more content (hello, you're already writing multiple books), and editing the videos only to discover that the algorithm has changed again...
BUT you realized that these are similar to Amazon and Facebook ads. You've already wasted thousands on ads, adding another platform that you don't understand just doesn't make sense. Plus: You have no idea how to make book buyers join your email list from these ads...
BUT it's so ridiculously expensive and you're not sure they can even help. You've heard horror stories from fellow authors and you don't want to hurt your book marketing efforts (even if they aren't anything major right now) by handing it all over to someone else to turn around and
stuff up manage it.
What if you could stop chasing book sales and readers and instead, streamline your book marketing to just 5+ hours a week and still make a recurring monthly income with queues to buy your other books and digital offers instead?
Daily Email Subscriber Sign Ups For The Last 30 Days
When I started out as a full-time author, I really struggled to sell books consistently. Getting people to join my email list on autopilot felt like a mythical beast... 🦄 aka never gonna happen.
After investing (and losing) tens of thousands on Amazon, BookBub, and Facebook ads, making a full-time income from my writing felt like a pipe dream. 😭
👉 So I decided to switch gears and turn my content into mini-courses. From my first launch, I generated $2,000 from a small email list of 500 people. 🎉
That was in June 2016.
I went on a course-creating spree based on some (bad) advice I'd received... I was told that: "the more courses you have, the more money you'll make."
My gut told me not to do it, but I still felt like a newbie author and creative entrepreneur and that I 'should' listen to the more experienced gurus in the field.
😔 MY NEXT COURSE LAUNCH HAD ZERO SALES! 😔
❌ I launched a few more times with similar results. I had literally stopped making money overnight... ❌
Writing more books, running Amazon ads, and spending all my time on social media promoting my books seemed like my best way forward...
Totally not doable as the only income earner in my family at the time. 😭
❌ Launching and publishing a YouTube video once a week (but boy, that was a lot of work with zero returns)
❌ Creating a BookBub ad campaign (but I just blew hundreds of dollars with no book sales)
❌ Creating low-cost digital offers (and that worked but people wouldn't stay on my email list or buy my other books, and if they did, they weren't a good fit long-term)...
I told myself:
There MUST be an easier way to do this and make a full-time income, even if all I want to do is write more books!
And that's when it hit me!
And this time, I finally started to see the results I'd been working towards for so long:
✅ The more books I published the more my income increased from Amazon (and the more digital offers I sold on the backend)
✅ 60% of book buyers opt-in to my email list and stick around (and they are my ideal audience, the people I love chatting to and helping!)
✅ 60-80% of new readers buy my low-cost digital offers within the first 90 days of joining
✅ I was able to create recurring, predictable income without having to be on social media all day or spend more money on ads
The best thing?
This saves me so much time and energy!
(That I can spend with my family and focus on doing more creative things)
Managing and maintaining my full-time author business takes less than 15 hours per week.
All it takes are...

"Working with Lise and completing some of her programs made me realize that I like her teaching style and what she's teaching is really valuable. So, therefore, when she comes up with something new, I listen."
"Having Lise as a coach was a great experience I felt like I had more than a mentor, but that I had also made a new friend. Lise is knowledgable, capable, and caring. Her positive, uplifting energy is incredibly infectious, even when we're meeting late and she's just gotten through a horde of other students. I love how she can make a newbie writer with no prior experience like me, feel like he's capable of achieving anything. I felt like every penny I spent was safely pushing me forward. Lise made me feel unafraid."
I'm a new author and I'm just getting started. Will this still work for me?
Yes and No...
Yes in the sense that if you have a book already written and more books to write, then this will help you set yourself up for long-term success.
On the other hand, no if you've got no books written or published. This program will NOT help you write, publish and launch a book.
NOTE: There is an option to purchase my "I AM An Author" self-study course which walks you through writing, publishing, and launching a book for the first time. If you believe you can do that along with this course, you'll be able to access it for a discount on the checkout page.
What is the "7-Day Coaching Implementation Week" you mentioned?
Great question! The last 7 days of each 30-day block will be dedicated to implementing everything you've learned in that time. Think of this like a mini-challenge. I'll be available every day inside our private Facebook Group answering your questions and going live as needed.
This is about taking what you've learned and putting it into imperfect action.
How much support is included?
As much as you raise your hand for... within reason. You'll get ALL your questions answered within our members-only support group within 24 hours (48 hours during the weekend) plus there is an implementation week and monthly group coaching calls for you to access.
Plus, as part of this beta launch, you'll get an additional 3 months of group coaching along with access to the private mastermind community on Facebook. Basically you're getting 6 months of coaching and support for the price of 3!
How does the 90-days work vs. the 6 months of coaching?
The 90-days is the core training content, dripped out to you every week with a week (7-Day Coaching Implementation Week) dedicated to implementing every 30 days.
The 6 months of coaching includes a monthly group coaching call (6 of them) along with access to the private mastermind community on Facebook for accountability, Q&A sessions and community support.
What am I doing in the 15 hours per week?
Great question! Firstly, 15 hours per week is what it will likely take you in the beginning. By the time you have your full-time author business systems all set up and working, it's going to be more like 5-8 hours per week.
15 hours is set aside to create your content and plug things into your systems aka setting up landing pages, emails, tripwires, sales pages etc. Once you've got your templates for all of this, it's simply a case of duplicating them for each book / offer.
It might take you longer or shorter, it depends on your energy levels and where you're at in your business.
People tell me it takes 2+ years to write a book, how does that fit into your system?!
Honestly, when it comes to non-fiction books, you can write the first draft within two weeks when you follow my quick-creation method. It starts with understanding that your readers don't have a lot of time. They want solutions to their problems quickly. This means that we don't write a book that's going to be 50,000+ words long. Instead, we focus on writing shorter books, within a series, that address individual pain points and challenges instead.
You'll be amazed at how quickly you can create a book from scratch with my method. It's how I've got 36+ books published since starting in 2014.
Plus, I'll be providing you with a whole bunch of templates too.
Does this only work for coaches?
No, this works for all online business owners, such as authors, freelancers, course creators, and creative entrepreneurs who want to create a passive income business leveraging their non-fiction books.
I'm not tech savvy. Do I need a bunch of tools to make this work?
No. You don't need a ton of technology to make this work. There are some tools I recommend, but where possible, I'll be sharing the free way and the fastest way (which typically costs money). You choose!
Do I need to have additional funds to make this work?
You are so smart for asking! Yes, you'll need to budget approx. $300-$500 per book that you choose to publish. This will cover costs associated with formatting, cover design, and promotions.
I will show you how you can DIY your own formatting and cover design to reduce those costs by 50% but you will always need to pay for an editor/proofreader.
In terms of the tools I'll be recommending and suggesting, I'll always show you DIY and low-cost options ($20 or less) as well as all-in-one solutions. You decide what works best for you based on your budget. You can upgrade as needed.
I don't have an audience or email list yet. Is that a problem?
Not at all. I'll be sharing a number of strategies that leverage your book to build your audience and email list quickly.
When will I get access?
You'll receive an email with all the details immediately after your successful purchase and you'll be invited to our inner circle within 24 hours.
You have LIFETIME access to the training materials but the inner circle/group coaching ends after 6 months.
Is there a money-back guarantee?
Yes. You can ask for a refund within 7 days of joining if you believe this isn't the right fit for you. You'll receive a full refund minus a 5% administration fee. Simply email email@example.com with your receipt and as long as it's within the 7-day cancellation period, you'll receive your refund.
When will you be offering this again?
Right now, my plan is to run this program twice a year. But I only ever plan 90 days in advance. So I don't have a specific date right now. What I can tell you is that the next time I run this, it will be only 90 days long and it won't be until after this cohort is finished.
This is YouR exclusive invitation
This is the sign you've been waiting for. It's time to take action and get serious about making money from all your hard work. Committing 5-15 hours a week to setting up your author business marketing over the next three months will have you reaping the rewards for years to come.
