Traditional Publishers Control:

  • What you earn

  • When you get paid

  • When (or if) your book gets published

  • What cover design you use

  • What edits you are required to make

  • When you are required to make edits

  • What else you can do to make money with your book

Self-Publishing Allows You Full Control.

This is NOT Vanity Publishing

Vanity Publishers:

  • Require you to pay the entire cost of producing your book and then may even charge you royalties on top of it!

  • Require you to buy hundreds or even thousands of copies of your book...and require you to buy from them at a substantial markup from what the printer charges

  • Make outrageous promises about how they will market your book and make you a best-selling author...but don't deliver

Path To Publishing:

  • Does not charge you royalties unless we share the costs of publishing (through our hybrid publishing model)

  • Does not require you to buy any copies of your book - we set you up directly with the printers & distributors so you pay nothing extra

  • Makes no promises about where you will rank because we can't promise how much work you'll be willing to do to get where you want to go, but does promise to provide you access to everything you need to achieve your measure of literary and financial literary success 

How Much Should It Cost to Publish a Book?

The answer is that it depends on your goals for the outcome. If you would like to simply publish a book, it can cost you nothing. There are YouTube videos that will teach you how to upload a manuscript to Amazon or Ingram Spark, and make it available for sale without spending anything or very little. You can also use to publish.

However, if your goal is to elevate your book's message by motivating the masses to share it, allowing you to build momentum and make the life-saving, history-shaping, world-changing impact you want to make, you need more than a published book.

You need a publishing team that will allow you to compete with big-name publishers. You need a social media team that will help you gain traction across the globe. You need a marketing and promotions team.


You need a solid business plan and industry experts that can help you implement it. They will know how to put your book in the hands of corporations, schools, and organizations that will partner with you to reach more readers than you could on your own.That is what Path To Publishing provides.

Yes, we do handle the book's production needs, but we specialize in providing the support that allows authors to leverage their book as a vehicle to literary and financial literary success.

“As a writer, it is not often that I am without words, but Joylynn and the Path to Publishing team has left me speechless! They held my hand throughout the entire publishing process and made it seem like it was the easiest thing in the world. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is thinking of self-publishing. They went above and beyond, and I am thankful for them and the time they spent to make my dream become a reality!”

How Long Will The Process Take?

Our monthly plans make high-quality publishing affordable but this does mean a delay in the delivery of your dream. Expect 12 months for the process if you are using our monthly payment plans. Expedited service can be had, but you are still looking at a minimum of 3 months depending on what level of services are required. 

Can I Do It Myself?

Absolutely! In fact, we offer all the information you need to learn how to do it yourself in our online store. We highly recommend purchasing Path To Publishing courses or making plans to attend the The Business of Storytelling Week-Long Residency in Las Vegas July 9th - 15th. 

Don't Let Money Rob You of Your Dreams!

An expense is something that you put money into but it never returns any money to you. Think of a pair of tennis shoes or a purse that you might pay $250-$2500 to buy. That is an expense.

An investment is money you pay to someone else that, when applied the right way, will pay you back month after month, year after year. The book is an investment and the start of what can be a lucrative home-based business.

However, we understand the financial challenges you might be facing. We've all been there. To ensure access for all those who want to achieve their dreams, we provide several different ways to get the money together.

You can earn up to 20% of every eligible item that is purchased through your affiliate link when you share it with your friends, family, or social media followers. This helps us promote our business and offers you a way to make the money you need to pay for our services.

Rather than buying you another gift that will collect dust or be forgotten, ask them to support your dreams by purchasing a gift card that you can apply toward your book. To incentivize this option, offer them a free copy of your completed book when it comes out in exchange...that way the gift becomes a win-win for you both.

3. Buy Our Online Course and Discover How to Make a Living as a Writer Before the Book Is Done!


Discover all the information you need to learn how to make a living as an author before the book is done in our online store.


You can also make plans to attend the annual Act Like an Author, Think Like a Business Conference, the premiere conference for authors, publishers, business owners, and those seeking to build a business with their message.
