As consultant with 30 years in advertising and marketing I am appalled at the level of ignorance and shallow thinking that so many book marketing gurus exhibit. You, however, are a peacock among common fowl. There are so few voices worth listening to in self-publishing and yours is one of them.

In 10 - 15 years you will be able to be the pope of self-publishing, you will be the leader, I have been watching your career and that's what I see coming.

Effortlessly write a book readers love with a proven system from a PhD in Literature

Attn: ATTENTION: Artists, Writers and Creatives: will this be the year you finish your book and become a full-time author? With my help, it WILL be.


Remember the joy of writing, when you could just let your imagination fly and fill pages with your big ideas? Maybe your love for writing is calling you to become an author.

But where do you even start?

Everybody wants to write a book,

but actually sitting down and getting it finished is a huge challenge and commitment. And then what? How do you get people to actually read it? How do you know you're not wasting your time and money chasing an impossible dream?

FACT: The publishing industry is a mess,

and great books don’t succeed without marketing. But who has time to build a big platform or get sucked into the tarpit of social media? Self-publishing has become a billion dollar industry, but it’s a “pay-to-publish” scheme profiting off the hopes and dreams of indie authors.


Imagine if there was a

that mapped out exactly how to writing a bestselling book, while also building a platform of loyal readers - so you could launch a bestseller easily just by sending out one simple email.

Without begging friends and family for book reviews. Without hustling on social media, or spending years waiting for permission from agents or publishers (and collecting stacks of rejection letters.)

Imagine being able to just write what you love, with no stress or fear or frustration about whether your book is good enough, or whether it will earn any money – because your book already has an audience of hungry readers waiting for it.

While everyone else is telling authors

they can't make money with their books without an expensive course or upsell; or that we should spend 80% of our time marketing and only 20% writing (ridiculous!) my clients are easily getting 100+ sales a day... on autopilot.

Thanks for pouring your heart and soul into this course- it has become life changing for me! Your course broke me out of writer's block and has helped me tap back into my flow. I’ve always been somewhat hesitant to really put my writing out there because of the fear of failing but being given permission to fail and now expecting to fail my way to success has taken that paralysis away.
Jen Gilbert Make A Killing On Kindle
Oh my gosh, thank you Thank You THANK YOU! This is exactly what I needed. Step-by-step of exactly what to do. Fumbling around for the past year trying to figure out how to get reviews. This is direct, to the point, understandable! I've made a lot of mistakes on the 3 books I currently have out, and as you can guess, they're not selling. But the next one...now I'm armed with knowledge! I'm dedicating my next book to Derek!"
JoAnn Hogenson YA Fantasy
I've learned more from you in the past few months, since becoming a student, than I have in the last five years,. Every day I give thanks, sincerely, you have given me direction and instruction on how to get to the life I have always wanted. Words will never be able to express the gratitude I have towards you.
Tom Smith Mystery Writer

After years of struggling,

this innovative new publishing and book marketing system gave them the ability to grow their income, quit their jobs and finally live the lives they've always wanted - and the CONFIDENCE to write great books without the fear or uncertainty.

Sleaze-free Success

Book marketing doesn't have to be awkward or uncomfortable. In fact, 95% of the “book marketing” actually takes place before you publish. It's about finding the value in your work, and communicating the benefits in a way that makes people beg for a copy.


Stop wasting time & money on USELESS book promotion tactics!

to selling more books is...

NOT to pay for more visibility or publicity: first you need to figure out how to communicate value in an emotionally and culturally relevant way. You have to make your book matter, quickly. So they'll listen to what you have to say. Otherwise – NOBODY CARES.

After months of testing and thousands of failed experiments, I figured out the core components of a radically new way for writing and publishing books readers love... I boiled down everything into an easy-to-follow, step-by-step system of just three simple steps. Get these right and you won’t even need to market your books.

Write books readers love

Most authors write for themselves, and then have NO IDEA who else might like their book or why they should read it.

The GP way: Respect your audience enough to care what they think, and know them well enough to deliberately give them an unforgettable reading experience.

Publish books that sell

Most authors lose money, throwing away cash on expensive PR that doesn't work, and having no way to track ROI.

The GP way: position and package your book to attract readers on autopilot, and launch profitably from day one.

Launch to #1 (and stay there)

Most authors disappear into the Amazon abyss after they've exhausted all their friends and family.

The GP way: build a loyal platform of loyal readers, and tickle the Amazon algorithm to promote your book for you, so you STAY visible even when you stop marketing.

Three strikes you're out

If you’re missing any one of these, your book won’t sell – you’ll be relying on luck, crossing your fingers and tossing coins into the wishing well without ever seeing results. Self publishing is a billion dollar industry, but almost none of the money is going to authors.


There's a better way

The 3 reasons your book will fail (and how to fix them)

A year ago I bought your course, having decided to dedicate my life to becoming an author. I did it mostly for the support because it was a big step. I never regretted it. You've been there every step of the way to provide feedback. You and the group kept me going on days when I bashed myself in the head and said "what the#^&% am I doing?"
John D Patten Spirituality
I stumbled across Guerrilla Publishing at the time I needed it most. With Derek's help, my debut settled nicely into Amazon’s top 500 overall and earned five-figures. With the release of the sequel, my income for January alone was just shy of $30,000. If you’re feeling overwhelmed in the literary world and haven’t settled onto a clear path to success, Guerrilla Publishing could change your life!
Jonas Thriller Author
I spent my last money for your course and never regretted it. It was like finding a hidden treasure and there is still so much more to discover - it's just what I needed! You should charge more.

Don't let the GATEKEEPERS


Take control of your publishing with a revolutionary new system for writing and publishing books that sell.

If you've been...

working too hard to finish your book


have already published but can't sell

it’s time for a new approach!


Guerrilla Publishing

The easiest and cheapest way to publish a profitable book

Launch books to #1 bestseller with my PROVEN plan

An audience of loyal readers who love to share your work


Limited time offer. (Don't wait, join NOW).

Your enrollment is 100% risk free with your full 30 Day Money Back Guarantee


From no idea to published author in just 90 days, with my bestseller blueprint and exclusive step-by-step system


Guerrilla Publishing is an online course & mentorship program that will take you from zero platform to #1 bestseller in less than 90 days.

You'll get everything you need to write great books and market them with integrity, PLUS expert advice to save you time and money.


First, you'll figure out who your target audience is and what they actually want, so you can position and design your book to attract them - which will easily triple your marketing efforts. Then you'll use my writing resources and templates to double-check the most important parts of your book, to avoid amateur mistakes and strengthen the final product.

★ how to outline your book, to save months of painful revision
★ finding time to write (even if you're busy)
★ never get writer's block or procrastination again
★ market research and competition analysis
★ choosing keywords and categories for free visibility
★ instantly hook their interest so they pay attention

Second, we'll deep-dive into the principles of bestselling book design. Getting the cover right is crucial to success (even if you hire a professional designer, you may still end up with a cover that doesn't sell unless you understand why one cover performs better than another.)

I'll share templates for formatting, recommend best fonts, and also walk you through uploading your files for print and ebook distribution, and how to focus on the things that matter most.

★ cover design secrets that sell
★ how to format your own books for print and ebook
★ where to upload your files for maximum distribution
★ optimizing your Amazon page and metadata
★ mistakes that will get you blacklisted from bookstores
★ best fonts to use for every genre
★ writing a powerful blurb that seizes the imagination

Third, you'll learn how to build an email list of fans, get a bunch of reviews, and launch your book to #1 bestseller and make it an "instant classic." I'll give you the exact book launch checklist I've used to launch hundreds of books, and share the best promotional sites and strategies to get maximum visibility.

★ build an engaged email list with book giveaways
★ get book reviews without begging or buying
★ build trust and credibility with your autoresponder
★ prelaunch with promo graphics (templates included!)
★ how to get media attention (without useless press releases)
★ finding influencers who will share your launch

Fourth, you'll learn how to maintain long-term visibility by growing and automating your author platform. Hitting #1 for a day feels great in the short-term, but if you want to make a living as a writer you need your books to keep selling for months, if not years, after launch.

We'll also improve your branding and story, and get your author platform and sales growing on autopilot - so you can stop marketing and have the freedom and energy and to write books you love.

★ how to set up your author website (and what to blog about)
★ Facebook, Twitter and social media hacks
★ AMS and Facebook advertising
★ joint author promos and content marketing
★ how to hit the USA Today or NYT bestseller lists


Bestseller Blueprint

My innovative process for creating books that sell is the ONLY foolproof way to make a living as a writer, and if you do it right, you won’t even need book marketing.

I spent months recording detailed videos breaking down my entire process, and answering every publishing question I could think of. I included step-by-step strategies showing you exactly what to do, so you never have to worry about "what's next."

Banish the Overwhelm

Stop spinning your wheels. This self-publishing and book marketing masterclass has everything you need to finish and launch your bestseller and fund your next big idea.

But don't take my word for it...

I have never followed anyone that comes across as genuine as you are. I don't trust people easily as I am naturally skeptical, but you are different. You have proven yourself again and again. I used to follow some other well-known self-publishing gurus until I eventually learned that they didn't care if I succeeded or not. Any time I talk with anyone about writing, publishing, or creating, I mention you and your approach. You are THAT good.
David Lawrence Middle Grade Scifi
Tons of value in this course! Just the author platform audit is worth a lot, since it's coming from an author with a PhD in Literature, and the experience and sales proof to back up what he teaches. One of the BEST WRITING COURSES available.
Cory Reynolds Young Adult Author
The indie publishing information business can sleazy. I stumbled on Derek later than sooner, but live and learn. I am VERY IMPRESSED by the breadth of his knowledge and his willingness to share. He’s the real deal. Not some internet marketing dude. He's proven his worth and value time after time, and I am fine spending money on any course he puts out. If he’s selling something, I’m buying it.
Tari Akpodiete Journalist

Derek Murphy offers a refreshing, honest perspective in the indie author business. I consume everything he puts out as fast as it becomes available. It's comprehensive, timely, and real. I do a lot of coordinating with groups of authors, both online in the Romance author community and in my local area. People always ask me "WHERE DO I BEGIN?" and among the short list of things that make up my response to that question, Derek Murphy is one of them.
Nicole R. Locker Contemporary Romance
This course has it all. It covers every aspect of self-publishing, from your initial book idea to book launch and marketing. I followed Derek's advice, redesigned an underperforming title and saw a MARKED INCREASE in downloads. I'm already seeing more traffic coming my way. I would definitely recommend this course over many others costing more than twice as much.
Shaun L. Griffiths YA fantasy
Both series popped within an hour of going live on Amazon and sold double what they had previously this month. Yesterday was the best sales day of the month so far in all my books. And that was just the first day. I did ZERO PROMOTIONS for any of this. Today is shaping up to be even better. You are a breath of fresh air in this business, and I'll keep up with the course and implement some of it. It has already given me value back.
Douglas Clegg NYT Bestselling Author

I wish I'd known about you and all this wonderful material several years ago. I feel like I FINALLY HAVE A ROADMAP that will lead me to the success I've been striving for. My "to do" list for fixing my books so they'll start converting to sales keeps growing with all of your ideas.
Ida Smith Thriller Author
I just wanted to say thank you for the resources and the great information. By following your advice I've stablized my sales, redone my covers, and am about to have my MOST SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH yet for my third book. Since I've gobbled up all of your info, I've become a much better stwear of my fiction.
Casey Calouette Military Scifi
Derek, thank you so much for sharing your learnings. You are a genius! Thanks to you I worked on a marketing strategy that helped my book be a #1 BESTSELLER last week. Please keep sharing because it makes a difference.
Norka Parodi Real Estate Writer

As a new indie author with one unsuccessful book launch, I needed a way forward. Cue Derek Murphy, the Creativ-Indie. I could have spent hours poring the internet and refining my methods, but why would I when it is all in one place? And that's what the Guerrilla Publishing course is - EVERYTHING NEEDED to produce and release a book, all in one place. I'm hugely excited about moving forward and putting all this into action.
James Hockley Dark Fantasy
Man, your courses have so much detail, and so many GREAT IDEAS! And the videos...I have to constantly pause and write stuff down, then I go back and rewatch several times. This course is the juiciest marketing/publishing course I've ever taken, and I've been through a few. Thanks for what you do!
J.K. Campbell Middle Grade Fiction
When it comes to self publishing, there are a vast number of resources out there. However, for those who have struggled for years without finding success, you need a practical guide. Derek Murphy’s course will teach you how to write the books and then, market them in the right places. Without that KEY STRATEGY, the books fail despite the amount you spend marketing it. He should be charging more, but he seems to be the kind of guy that wants to help and goes all out.

Win the publishing war

Get the confidence you need to launch your book successfully, and avoid amateur mistakes that can kill sales.

I encourage & empower authors to take control of their own publishing, bypass the gatekeepers, and actually earn a living with their writing. Now it’s your turn.

These strategies will do more than just give you "bestseller status." You'll be learning something much more valuable, something totally new and different:

A publishing revolution

and step-by-step process based on providing value and writing books that sell; plus the tools, resources and support you need to start earning real income from your books.


Guerrilla Publishing isn’t about writing crappy books or gaming the system.

It’s about long-term, strategic action, and being nimble enough to out-maneuver large publishing houses. It’s about satisfying your readers, so you can build up a massive fanbase that’s hungry for your next release.

Although I'm confident this course has everything you need, the truth is it's still not enough.


Knowledge is useless unless you take action.

I know that you're busy, and life gets in the way, and you're probably hesitant about signing up for MORE when you're already overwhelmed. So I added some exclusive bonuses you won't find anywhere else, a private mastermind for support and community, and expert feedback to ensure your success.



We've built systems to make sure you get the support and encouragement you need.

No author left behind

If you've been writing for awhile, you might know that staying motivated and positive can be challenging, and there's so much to learn about, getting a handle on your book marketing may feel overwhelming and exhausting.

Maybe you've even bought courses before, but couldn't figure it all out and didn't want to say anything. I don't want this to be a course you buy and don't use. That's why I've built Guerrilla Publishing with three main components

Join today and you'll get...

All Four Modules

Guerrilla Publishing includes a 12-week plan to write, publish and launch a bestselling book, with everything you need to hit #1 and create a steady stream of passive income.

Workbook & Bootcamp

A guided email series that will help you achieve the 24 simple, specific tasks in the companion workbook. You'll be encouraged to share your results, and also earn rewards for taking action, so you stay motivated.

Coaching & Community

Being around other successful authors who care about you and your dream can have a huge impact on productivity and motivation. So I've set up a private Facebook community with weekly check-ins so you can't fail.

Publishing changes quickly, and it's a struggle to stay caught up - so, when you sign up today you'll get 3 months of intensive coaching and feedback, plus a full year's access to the insider circle.

You'll also get the newest, cutting-edge book marketing hacks I discover BEFORE anybody else. If you’re the first in your genre or topic to use these, you’ll have a massive advantage.

With dozens of lessons, exclusive supplemental content, case studies and examples, this course is far more than just a video series. You'll be encouraged to connect with other authors, participate in daily challenges and check in with a weekly progress report.

We'll try to give you quick wins, so you can see results right away - and remember, I'll be there to help you, each step of the way, and the private group will be available for advice, support and encouragement, so you never feel alone, clueless or frustrated.

I've seen other coaches or masterminds charge literally 10X as much just for the community or coaching aspects, without any video tutorials - because they know support and long-term motivation is as important as education.

MC Frank Romance Author
I've done several introductory courses, but Derek's take the cake. The way he goes through his process by video gives a HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE I've seen nowhere else. He has a ton of stuff you can actually use that I haven't heard other people talking much about. He shows how to build a network between your website, social media presence, blog posts, graphics and video. He's given me the tools to build and lent a hand himself, and my platform is growing each moment.
Azalea Dabill YA Fantasy
Like so many authors out there, I felt like I was drowning when it came to marketing, and struggling with how to find my audience. Your videos and lessons are just what I needed. Rather than gloss over the 'big picture' stuff needed to progress, you break down steps into MANAGEABLE OBJECTIVES and give your students actual examples from your experience. So helpful!
Joni Green Mystery Writer

I have learned more about self publishing from you than many others. You present your information in very precise ways with examples that are EASILY UNDERSTOOD. I'm thinking of changing my title, the book description, and cover for my first book of a trilogy before I relaunch it. Thanks so much!
Irene Vincent Spirituality
Derek, you are without a doubt a FORCE OF NATURE, awakened at exactly the right moment in our evolution. You've inspired me to let the energy flow. More energy to you my helpful partner.
Doug New Inspirational Poet
You are the yoda of indie publishing. With your advice I put my book on the bestseller list for more than a week. My target audience are now die hard fans, who gave FIVE STAR reviews. The point is, you have helped me turn my writing into a livable income. I owe you and really cherish the advice that I've received."
William Miller Thrillers

"If you are an indie author or otherwise with limited resources, little to no knowledge of the publishing industry, or are wondering how to format and market your work, you should seriously consider taking Derek Murphy’s Guerrilla Publishing online course. I learned a ton from Derek’s course about sales, retention, reviews, publishing, marketing, formatting, and assorted software that make my life easier while trying to do all of the above. I not only found his information vital while formatting the interior of my upcoming romance novel, the loads of helpful material about book cover design (this was one of my favorite sections) and marketing without being spammy was also extremely useful. In addition, he shares his detailed knowledge on launching a new book, which I intend to review again when I’m finally ready to launch. All the extras found in the course make purchasing the full package worthwhile. The educational value is definitely worth the cost."

- Jamie Schulz, www.jamieschulzauthor.com

"I've worked with thousands of authors to help them nail their story and market their books, and I always refer them to Derek Murphy's work. Derek has the most creative ideas for marketing books. He draws from his previous background as a cover designer, blogger, and internet marketer to bring fresh techniques and tactics to the book industry. More importantly, he tests everything he teaches with his books and gets serious results! What I love about Derek is that he believes first and foremost in giving value to the world. He has given so much of his resources and time to the communities he builds, and he really cares about helping each person make progress. Derek is the type of person who way overdelivers on everything he does. He works hard to help people find success and will do the same for you."

- Monica Leonelle, The World Needs Your Book

Finding you is like taking a breath of fresh air after hiding from my plague of fears and disasters for so long. You are the very reason hopeful innocents like me are able to CONTINUE DREAMING and striving to make dreams a reality.

Derek is a wonderful instructor, intriguing storyteller, and a SUPERB MENTOR. Even to old guys like myself.
Dave Powell Historical Fiction
If there are others out there like me who have consumed all your AMAZING DATA as fast as we can hunt for it, self-publishing is about to get a lot more interesting and a lot more competitive.
Nick Koff Non-fiction

"Having published my first book traditionally, I wanted to try my hand at self-publishing for my second book but I quickly discovered there is so much more to it than just listing a book on Amazon. It's overwhelming! If that's how you feel, too, then Guerrilla Publishing is exactly what you need. Derek's down-to-earth style makes complicated topics easy to understand. The entire process of self-publishing is broken down into small, achievable steps. You'll receive every bit of your money's worth in this course and much more. The Facebook community is icing on the cake. I can ask any question and get an answer. No more walking in the dark for me! Thanks, Derek, for a truly awesome course. I am so happy that I decided to join. I don't know where I would be without it.

- Kelly Langston, Author of 40 Prayers for Perilous Times

"As a newbie writer with several halfway done manuscripts but no experience publishing, I was overwhelmed with everything I had to learn to structure, publish, and market my books on a shoestring budget. I’ve read countless how-to articles but I had information overload and didn’t know where to start and in what order. Then I found this course and let out a breath of relief! Guerrilla Publishing was what I needed: a course that guides me step-by-step through the process, so that I don’t have to figure out what to do next. Everything is spelled out for me by someone who has successfully done it before. The lifetime access to all the instructional videos is great because I can go at my own pace, there’s no deadline, and the information is available to me not just for a year but for forever. I tagged Derek with a question once and his answer saved me over $400.

- Veronique Line, Christian self-help and relationship

Derek Murphy is simply the best in the cover design world. I'm a co-founder of a publishing company and recently hired a new cover designer. The first "training" I did was take him directly to Derek's portfolio.
Matt Stone ArchangelInk
Derek, thank you again for spending some time on the Will It Fly stuff - it's been a crazy journey and we're almost ready to launch! I can't express how much your designs helped in shaping the conversation around what the book cover eventually turned into. Thank you, seriously, for your help.
Pat Flynn Smart Passive Income
One of the most critical things for the success of a book is a cover design that catches the eye and makes the reader want to try it. Derek designed several professional covers for my own books and I can recommend his design skills highly.
Joanna Penn TheCreativePenn

The prevalence of your many topics, the plentiful resources, and the imagination of the time that you must have put into establishing this is astonishing. Please, keep flourishing with love the insights that are so complimentary to inspire authors, and readers.

About Derek Murphy

For the past several years, my wife and I have been able to travel full-time, living in beautiful locations and speaking at writing conferences around the world. It's amazing to wake up full of purpose and enthusiasm and work on my creative projects.

I have a PhD in Literature and have been featured in CNN for running writing retreats in castles. More importantly, I'm a full time writer, which means I'm launching books of my own and will always stay three steps ahead of the market to make sure my books continue to sell.

The truth is I'm still pretty awkward about selling things, but I'm great at what I do, and people are usually surprised by my level of attention. If you're still uncertain, go back and read all the reviews and testimonials on this page.

Still not convinced? Read these.

Got Questions?

Will this really help me sell more books?
YES. Why? There are three secrets to selling books. Most other courses focus on basic book marketing advice that EVERYBODY else is already doing, and they avoid the uncomfortable fact that 90% of authors are trying to sell books that nobody wants. This is the ONLY course that focuses on writing books for a specific audience, so you know exactly how to design, position and package your book to attract your ideal readers. Plus you'll find dozens of innovative strategies nobody else is even talking about yet.
Does it really work?
Absolutely. These are the strategies I used to...
- Build a list of 35K fans
- Sell 20,000 book and get 100K downloads
- Get nearly 1000 book reviews
- Become a full-time writer in less than two years

But it isn't a magic bullet. If you've written a book for a very small audience, and they don't like it, this course won't fix the core problem - but it can help make sure your NEXT book is much more successful.
Will it work for fiction/nonfiction/poetry/kid's books?
I've designed this course with both fiction and non-fiction authors in mind. I've successfully published both, and have helped design launch books in ALL genres. No matter what kind of books you write, this course will you connect with your audience, get more visibility and build a platform for your writing.
When does the course start and finish?
It starts as soon as you join; we have a structured learning experience set up but you'll have lifetime access to the course materials as well, plus up to ONE YEAR of support and feedback (we understand that writing and publishing is a long-term effort).
Why should I trust you?
I've been putting out free templates, tutorials and videos to help writers self-publish for the past decade. My resources get thousands of downloads a month and I'm up to nearly a million views on YouTube. But forget all that. More importantly, people like and trust me, because I'm a boy scout at heart and my purpose is to serve. I also care too much about what people think of me, so I give WAY more than I charge for and hate letting people down. Honestly I hate selling things on the internet, but I want more authors to get high quality information so they can avoid the scams.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
There's a ton of material in my courses, but if you don't find something useful that improves your book sales, or are unsatisfied with your purchase for any reason, just let me know and I'll refund you. I'll even make you a bet: using the tips in this course will help you double your book sales in less than a year. If they don't, ask me for your money back.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited LIFETIME access to the courses and templates for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. I'll also keep adding new courses and materials into the membership area, so you'll get full access even if you bought in at a lower price.
What if I fall behind?
Twice a year we open enrollment and go through the course together, but you'll have lifetime access to the material. I understand that publishing a book is a long term effort; you'll have one year of access to the community and can get my personal help and feedback whenever you need it. You'll be able to go at your own pace, and all the resources will be ready and waiting for you.
What if I don't have a book yet?
Perfect! If you're just thinking about writing a book, I can help you find the right idea for YOUR goals, and develop it into a working outline. I can't write the book for you, but I can make it much easier with structure and guidance.
Can't you do all this for me?
Unfortunately no - for long term success, YOU must engage with your own audience and learn how to master your own publishing. However I will recommend things you can (and should) outsource.
How's it work?
Lessons will be delivered to your inbox over the course of 12 weeks, and we'll check in and make sure you're getting value. Within 90 days, you should be able to have your book on Amazon and hit #1 in your category.
