Hey there, I’m Derek Murphy – I started this site to help creative people start profitable freelance businesses, but most of my traffic comes from indie authors who want to learn how to DIY their book design and sell more books with innovative marketing. I’ve posted case studies on how I’ve built massive email lists, got over 1000 preorders for a book launch, earned hundreds of book reviews and made six-figures self publishing nonfiction and fantasy.
But there’s a ton of content, and it’s easy to get lost. Despite all that, my resources have made a significant impact and helped thousands of authors achieve their career dream of writing full-time and becoming professional authors. I rarely work with clients directly anymore, but I continue to devote time to building and sharing self-publishing tools to help authors succeed faster.
For a limited time (today only!) I’m bundling up some of my best resources together with all of my book formatting and cover design templates into a massive bundle. This was meant for the people signing up to download my templates package but I’ve decided to offer it here as well, so you can snag the deal. Any one of these courses is worth more than the full price of the bundle, and even if you use just a fraction of what’s inside, you can make your publishing journey smoother while avoiding critical mistakes and a painful learning curve.
But don’t take my word for it, scroll down to read some reviews (I’ve racked up hundreds of testimonials, but here are a few of my favorites). Grab the deal if you want – the offer should be valid for about 20 more minutes before reverting to full-price. If it’s not for you, I’ll refund you 100%. I understand most authors just want to hire someone to do everything for them, but that’s an easy way to burn cash or get taken advantage of, and I don’t want that for you.
Check out the deal here.
25,000 Copies Sold…
“Thanks Derek! Your tutorials have steered me through some tricky processes. It can be a steep and intimidating learning curve. I’m well past 25,000 copies sold and have 260+ reviews on Amazon with 75% of them five star! My success is in no small measure a reflection on your cover design and marketing courses!”
If you want results, just ask Derek…
“I saw results almost right away thanks to Derek’s knowledge and sound advice; he was able to identify areas of improvement in my book descriptions, book covers, and my email funnel; after applying his suggested changes, I have reached an average of $2800 income per month from my book sales. This is not due to pure luck, but to his sharp and effective approach to book marketing. I would highly recommend Derek, not only for his knowledge of (and insights in) book marketing but also for his very kind, professional and result-oriented approach; if you want results: just ask Derek for help.”
$2,500 a month from writing…
“Hi Derek! I’m at the point where I make over 2.5k a month from my writing, and it all started with you, so you know how special you are to me. I still remember your e-mails when they said All right, let’s start making your 1k. Now I’m at double that, and ready to learn more from you.”
“The content you are offering is amazing. There are SO many others offering similar services, not as in depth as yours, for SOOOO much more money. It’s sickening how much they want. 6K 10K etc. Thanks for being reasonable and offering even more. It took me quite a while to find you after viewing MANY others for MANY months who help authors. I chose you because yours is reasonable and chocked full of goodies. Plus it seems like you really want to help people succeed.”
I finally feel like I have a plan…
“I was sworn off on “courses,” but because you seemed to advertise yours as the anti-course—no magical thinking—I was intrigued and signed up. I just wanted you to know that you’ve been so valuable to me this past year. I have genuinely learned so much from you. I love that there are no magic buttons or inflated promises—it’s just about consistency and making insightful marketing decisions, many of which I hadn’t considered until your course. For the first time since I started writing, I really feel like I know how to get there. You made that click for me, and I know that knowledge is what will make all the difference along the way. I can’t thank you enough for that. I’m constantly telling my author friends about your courses.”
If you’re not ready to spend $37 and sell more books, I hope you’ll at least grab some of my free guides – you can find these and more under the “books” tab in the menu above.
