Tired of Struggling to Build an Author Platform? 
You Can Win Fans and Influence Readers When You Harness the Invisible Mechanism Responsible for 90% of Your Results
You're Probably Here Because...
You want to publish a book...
and you have questions about book publishing and platform building.
You self-published a book...
but you're not sure why nobody is buying it.
You published traditionally... 
and it seems like your publisher didn't market your book well enough or long enough.
And chances are it's not working the way you dreamed it would. So, what if there was a way to get your book in front of tens of thousands--or even hundreds of thousands--of readers without being pushy or salesy or shamelessly self-promoting? 

Introducing the Author Access MasterClass and Support Community, the ultimate solution for authors who dread platform building. 

If you’ve ever wondered if the cards are stacked against you in book publishing, you’re probably right. There is a lot of competition in the marketplace, and it’s a challenge to be heard and seen.

But I'm here to help you succeed no matter how steep the competition appears to be. 

If you’ve had a hard time breaking into book publishing, or if you’ve published and didn’t have the success you hoped for, it’s not your fault. There’s a lot of information out there, and it can be confusing and daunting. 

Sometimes all the do-this, do-that information overload actually keeps you from success. And it’s OK! Because there’s a way out…AND….

Things are about to change! 

Listen to what happened for Jenna when she took the course.
Tools and Confidence 
"The Author Access course helped me understand that marketing is something I can do and actually be excited about as an author. Alice gave me the tools and confidence I needed to market to my readers in a way that felt genuine and valuable. Thanks Alice!” 
       Jenna Benton, self-published author and writing coach >>>>
You're in the Right Place If...
  • you haven't published a book yet: the Author Access MasterClass can help you break into publishing and be successful from Day One. 
  • you've previously published or self-published: but maybe you haven't had the success you hoped for. You’ll quickly see how YOU can cause every book you publish to succeed regardless of what your publisher does or doesn’t do. And you may even be able to boost the books you’ve already published. 
  • ​you’re writing non-fiction, fiction, self-publishing, or traditionally publishing: you’re in the right place, especially if you've ever felt stalled out. 
"I felt stalled before I took Author Access. It taught me to identify my strengths and embrace my role as an entrepreneur. Since completing the course, my speaking engagements have increased!"
            Lynne Hartke, traditionally published author 
Now, let's talk about some common false beliefs you might need to overcome as you consider joining the Author Access MasterClass and Community...
You think coaching is for others: because a) you are a coach yourself, b) you assume that once you publish you never have to touch your book again, or c) you would rather slug it out on your own and hope for the best. But guess what? The most successful people in the world work with coaches. 
Procrastination is your comfort zone: you prefer dreaming about book publishing rather than actually doing it. Since real participation is required, you may prefer to sit on the sidelines and wait for someday. News flash! Someday never arrives. 
Your money mindset is wonky:  if you want readers to invest in your books, you need to invest in yourself to be able to grow your business.  For example, the ROI on life coaching is as much as 300 to 500%. Several years ago, I spent my last $750 on life coaching. Since then, I've tripled my income and my fulfillment in life. 
The Know, Like, and Trust Factor: I realize you don't really know who I am or if I can deliver on my promises. This is legit. But take a look at what my clients have to say about me... 
"Some people can guide your writing, others your inner journey. Alice can do both! I have worked with Alice on books and I’ve benefitted from her life coaching. After every appointment with Alice I walk away knowing myself better and understanding what positive choices I need to make to benefit my life and writing."
               ~Tricia Goyer, best-selling author of 70+ books
Now, you may be thinking...

"With MILLIONS of books, teachers, 
conferences, and courses 
that teach writing and publishing, 
why should I trust YOU 
to coach me?"

I'm glad you asked!
Publishing wasn’t always easy for me. I took the long road and learned everything the hard way. I almost got fired once(!) and I've escaped numerous layoffs. 

But I kept pursuing my dreams, and in the process, I discovered the secrets I've included in this course. You need a competitive advantage, and I want to help you get one. 
  • I have 20+ years of book publishing experience, so I know the ins and outs of how it all works.
  • ​As a professional editor and a former literary agent, I can give you the inside scoop on how to get your book proposal approved. 
  • ​I have massive industry connections, and I can introduce you to others who can help you succeed.
  • Most importantly, with me you get 10+ years of life coaching experience--because it all begins with mindset and how you think, and we're going to start there.
There are other experts out there. Some might have more experience than me. They might be amazing editors, writers, or marketers. 

 But you can pit me against the best writing teachers and publishing gurus out there, and I would absolutely win when it comes to...
COACHING
Just because someone knows how to write and publish books, doesn't mean they can help you deal with the invisible mechanism actually responsible for 90% of your results.

But I can, and here's why...
Certified Life Coach. With 10+ years of experience in Transformational Mindset Coaching, I don't give advice; I help my clients discover life-changing solutions for overcoming the invisible mechanism responsible for 90% of their results. 
Mindset Mastery. I use a unique coaching technique that identifies and clears away stubborn brain patterns and limiting beliefs. My clients experience more power, freedom, creativity, and peace of mind in their personal lives and work (and so can you!). 
Author Coach. I serve authors with life coaching sessions that help them get unstuck when life gets in the way of their productivity and creativity. 
Personal Growth. I walk the walk. I invest in coaching for myself by taking ongoing coaching classes and individual sessions to continue my own personal growth. Why? Because that makes me a better coach and helps the people I work with. 
Proven Experience. I have insider perspectives on what makes a bestselling book. I've worked with at least 50 best-selling authors. I know how each of them earned their success, and it's not what you may think. 
Expert Editing: Dozens of the books I've edited have become not only Amazon bestsellers, but also New York Times and ECPA bestsellers. 
Paid My Dues. I was a struggling single mom with no college degree when I began my career in publishing. I started as a part-time editorial assistant and took college classes at night. I learned to edit from some of the best editors in the industry, who patiently allowed me to look over their shoulders. I took coaching courses on my own time, coached clients "in my spare time" and read hundreds of books on writing and business. 
Adventure Seeker. I have a horse, six grandkids, and a private pilot's license. Obviously, these have nothing to do with book publishing, but I love adventure and have a fun and busy life like you do. :-)
Best Coach for the Job. Period. If you can't trust me with your publishing career, you probably can't trust anyone. You'll have to look long and hard to find someone with the combination of knowledge and skills I have. 
"What if you could build a large tribe of followers giving you the platform you need to be successful in book publishing? With Alice Crider's Author Access MasterClass you can! In just six weeks I learned to identify my ideal reader and how to successfully market my book to them by using proven out-of-the-box methods. 
            ~Larry Dugger - pastor and multi-published author

I got so much more than I expected out of this course. Alice is warm and thoughtful, and she brought in several expert guests whose expertise and enthusiasm were so insightful and instructive. I learned also from my fellow writers through their questions and comments.

Your publishing dream is within your reach now...
At this point, you might believe the value is insane, but you might be wondering if it will work for you or if it's worth the money. If you're tripping over any doubts, that's because....
Brain Patterns!
And that's my specialty. I can help you get past the doubts that would keep you from fulfilling your dream. 
The truth is, time is ticking away, and you'll spend money on something in the next eight weeks or eight months. You can spend it on doodads with no payoff, or you can invest it in yourself and your dream by registering for this course that could give you a 500% return on your investment. 

My coaching can help you break free from scarcity brain patterns (part of that invisible mechanism actually responsible for 90% of your results). Once you shift from scarcity to abundance, money and self-doubt will no longer be an issue for you.
