Publishing 101

It's time to write your story

Want to publish your book, but don’t know how to get it from your computer to a printed book

Once you understand the publishing process, the decisions become clear.

Dear Up-and-coming Published Author,

It has been said 81 percent of Americans feel they have a book in them. That equates out to about 200 million people who want to become a published author. I have a sneaky suspicion that you are part of that 81 percent!

So what is stopping you from publishing?

For many it is a lack of knowledge. I remember when I got the nudge to write my first book, I had no clue as to what I was doing. For the writing process, I fell back on the training I received in my 11th grade expository writing class. When I wasn’t writing, I was searching the internet for the next steps on how to turn this Word document into an actual book.

As we all know, blindly searching the internet for solid information is tricky. I saw a quote online from Abe Lincoln that said, “85 percent of what you read on the internet is true.” - hmmmmm

So needless to say, I spent a lot of time and effort trying to figure out “the right path.” After my own trial and error, I found there is one main process, but a few different ways to walk through it. The key to success is to understand the publishing process and choose which path is the best for you and your book.

Find out which path is best for you and your book.

This course will not only help you understand the publishing process, but we will also break down the different ways to publish. You might be saying to yourself, “but you are a publishing company, so you are going to try to sell us YOUR publishing services.”

The truth is, I know that the hybrid publishing solution we offer here at Kingdom Publishing has been very helpful for our authors, but it isn’t for everyone. I also know that many people write hoping to be traditionally published. However, many have misconceptions about what it takes to get picked up by a traditional publisher, and how they will handle their book.

Self-publishing is a great option that will give you full autonomy to publish your book exactly as you would like. It also puts the full responsibility on you to do EVERY PART of the process.

Now if you just read that, and are feeling a little overwhelmed, take a deep breath. This class will explain all of that and answer any questions you may have about publishing.

Jump on in this class and learn the process, the lingo, and the methods to successfully publish your book!

The pieces of the publishing process we will discuss in this class include:

  • Writing
  • Editing
  • Cover Design
  • Interior Layout
  • Beta Readers

  • Review quotes
  • ISBN Numbers
  • Copyright
  • CIP and LCCN information
  • BISAC codes

  • Back cover copy
  • Marketing your book
  • Book launch plan
  • Print on Demand
  • Print runs

Once we go over the process, then we will talk about the pros and cons of the various ways to go about publishing:


  • Traditional Publishing
  • Hybrid Publishing
  • Self Publishing
  • Vanity Presses


It might seem confusing that as a publisher, I am teaching ways for you to complete your book that doesn’t include my services. It is important to me to get the truth out, because it bothers me to see bold opinions being shared when it comes to publishing. “ONLY go with a traditional publisher” or “NEVER use a hybrid publisher” or “self-publishing is the ONLY WAY TO GO!”

Each path has its benefits and its drawbacks. My goal is to help you navigate this new territory so you can experience your desire to become a published author!

By the end of Publishing 101, you will walk away with:


  • Clear understanding of the book publishing process
  • Pros and Cons of various publishing Options

What Our Kingdom Publishing Authors have to say:

Teresa Blaes
I’ve worked with Tracy and Kingdom Publishing for quite a while. She helped me bring out my story. When we do work together, Tracy is nothing less than encouraging. If you have a story to tell, Tracy is the right person to help you tell it.
It’s been an honor.

~ Teresa Blaes – Author in God Met Me Here

I am honored to share what it was like to work with Publisher Tracy Fagan. Tracy is kind, knowledgeable, and had amazing ideas that she put in place for my first book.  On a more personal note, I loved that she was very open to us praying together when we met on Zoom to talk about the book and next steps. It was a privilege for me to have my book published by Kingdom Publishing and Ms. Fagan—I’ve learned a lot and have a beautiful book to honor my son Calvin and to reach hurting hearts one book at a time.
