The Guided Author Program is a proven program that provides you with everything you need to write, publish, and market your book.

Guiding Star And Book Roadmap Sessions

Over the course of up to two in-depth and collaborative conversations with your Book Coach, we’ll help you first settle on your book idea, and then take that book idea and turn it into a tight, professional book positioning by clearly articulating your objectives and identifying your audience.

This document serves as your “Guiding Star” throughout the writing process.
You’ll also have a call with your Book Coach to help you craft your book’s Table of Contents. From there, over the course of up to four calls, we’ll create a chapter-by-chapter outline—what we call a Book Roadmap—that lays the foundation for your book.

Book Coaching And Review Sessions

You’ll have weekly coaching sessions with your Book Coach during your manuscript writing process.
Your Book Coach will review selected chapters, provide feedback, advice, improvements, and accountability as you write. When you’ve finished your first draft of your manuscript, your Book Coach will review the entire document and provide you with an evaluation memo.

You’ll have a call with your Book Coach to review their feedback, discuss editing and revisions, and ask any questions you may have to ensure you’re ready to begin editing.

Author Community Platform

Once you begin writing your manuscript, you’ll be added to our Guided Author Community platform, Circle, where you can interact with other Authors, Book Coaches, and Author Success Managers. You’ll have the opportunity to engage in weekly accountability prompts and ask all of your questions to our team of experts.

Full Digital Course Access

You will begin by working through the best book writing course available: Guided Author Digital course. This course walks you through each step of starting your book, including the positioning, the book structure, the outline, and more. You will begin your book there, before even working with a Book Coach.

A Full Edit Of Your Manuscript By Professional Editors

When you’ve finished writing your manuscript, a Pixel Publishing editor will do a full round of content edits.
The Pixel Publishing editorial team will dig in and give you high-level developmental notes to help you polish and finish the manuscript. Your editor is an experienced professional who has worked on dozens of bestselling books in their career, and their job is to make sure your book is good enough to publish.

We call this edit the “Hurt Your Feelings” edit because we promise that we will hurt your feelings before we let you put out a bad book. Sold by itself, this is a $5k value.

How the Guided Author Process Works

We have a proven process that will not only get the best possible book out of you—but help you at every step along
the way.


Book Strategy Consult

The first step—before you begin your book—is to make sure you actually have a book in you and determine whether our method is the right one for you.

To do this, you will speak with an Author Strategist who will help you get clear on three things:

  • Your book idea
  • The audience you’re trying to reach (building a passive income, creating greater visibility for yourself, increasing your authority in your area of expertise or getting onto the speaking circuit)
  • The objectives you hope the book will help you achieve (like making money with a book, or using a book to build your brand)


Note that this is not a sales call. This is about determining whether you have a book in you and whether our company is the right fit to help you write it. Our process does not work for everyone. If we determine that we’re not a good fit for each other, we’ll happily refer you to a service or company that can meet your needs.


Assemble Your Publishing Team

To begin the process, you’ll meet your Author Success Manager.
They’re your main point of contact and will assemble your creative team.

Your Author Success Manager’s primary job is to ensure that your book is as good as possible and publishes on time. On the introduction call they will get to know you and your book idea to collect enough information from you to match you with a Book Coach.


Review Digital Course

You’ll work through our comprehensive writing course, led by our expert editorial team.
The course will walk you through every step of the process.

You will first position your book, then outline it, then create your writing plan, then go over everything else you need to know to write and edit your book. Our goal for each workshop module is that you leave knowing exactly what you need to do, and full confidence that—with our support—you can do it.


Book Coaching Sessions

On your first call with your Book Coach, you’ll review and finalize the “Guiding Star” of your book.
This will be similar to the Book Strategy consult call, but will go into much greater depth and accomplish these things:
Specifically articulate what your book is about
Define exactly who your audience is
Understand precisely how your book will serve that audience and why they will care about your book
Specifically articulate how you will use the book to benefit you

Once you’ve locked in your book’s Guiding Star, you’ll work with your Book Coach to review and finalize your Table of Contents and Book “Roadmap.” The Roadmap will be a guide for your writing and will help you define your ideas, sharpen your thinking, and lay the foundation for your book.



As we journey together through the book-writing process, your coaching sessions will provide you with more than just a plan – each week, you’ll have actionable steps to move your book forward with feedback from your publishing team. Additionally, in our Guided Author Community, our team doesn’t just offer help; we actively engage with you to navigate every challenge, be it plot problems, character development, or pacing issues.

Having trouble with getting the story out? We’ve got exercises to get you out of it. Having an issue with how to make a specific point on a topic, our writing team will come up with suggestions to make sure your voice comes through on the topic.

During your weekly check-ins with your Publishing Coach, you won’t just review your writing; you’ll collaboratively dissect a chapter of your choice, identifying strengths and areas for improvement. This one-on-one time is dedicated to ensuring that what you’ve written resonates with your intent and to plotting the course for what you’ll write next—with us by your side every word of the way


Review Your Manuscript

You’ll have a final call with your Book Coach to review their notes on your entire first draft manuscript. On this call, you’ll discuss editing, address their feedback, and ask any questions you have so that you’re ready to revise your manuscript and submit it for publishing.


The Full Design, Publishing & Distribution Services

After our edit and your revisions, when you are finished with your manuscript, you hand it to us and we do all the publishing. This includes a beautifully designed cover and interior layout, full coordination of all publishing details (ISBN, bio, description, etc.), hardcover, paperback, and eBook formats included, and everything else we do when publishing a book.


Launch and Promotion

As the book’s release approaches, we’ll prepare for your book release by designing social media graphics for you to post and drafting emails to send to your contacts.

When the book launches, we’ll run a pricing campaign on Amazon to spur initial sales, during which we’ll coordinate a review campaign to get early reviews for the book and provide you with a strategy and templates to launch an email campaign to your contacts.

The goal of this first week is to finish with a baseline of reviews, readers, and media attention to continue building from as you begin your life as a published author.
