From Starving Artist to Bestselling Author
I spent 10 years begging for friends and family to support my work. Then I figured out how to create work that matters, get massive amounts of free visibility, and do what I love while travelling full-time. After working with over 1000 authors, I've discovered 3 SECRETS professional writers use to make a living with their writing.

"Today my first book got a nice, shiny orange bestseller sticker and I could not have done it without the help I received from Guerrilla publishing. For those of you just getting started, this info really does work! Read Derek's books, apply the lessons, spread the knowledge to others. Can't thank you enough Derek. You are THE MAN!"
- William Miller
"Oh my gosh, thank you Thank You THANK YOU! This is exactly what I need. Step-by-step of exactly what to do. This is direct, to the point, understandable!

25,000 Copies Sold…

“Thanks Derek! Your tutorials have steered me through some tricky processes. It can be a steep and intimidating learning curve. I’m well past 25,000 copies sold and have 260+ reviews on Amazon with 75% of them five star! My success is in no small measure a reflection on your cover design and marketing courses!”

If you want results, just ask Derek…
“I saw results almost right away thanks to Derek’s knowledge and sound advice; he was able to identify areas of improvement in my book descriptions, book covers, and my email funnel; after applying his suggested changes, I have reached an average of $2800 income per month from my book sales. This is not due to pure luck, but to his sharp and effective approach to book marketing. I would highly recommend Derek, not only for his knowledge of (and insights in) book marketing but also for his very kind, professional and result-oriented approach; if you want results: just ask Derek for help.”

$2,500 a month from writing…
“Hi Derek! I’m at the point where I make over 2.5k a month from my writing, and it all started with you, so you know how special you are to me. I still remember your e-mails when they said All right, let’s start making your 1k. Now I’m at double that, and ready to learn more from you.”

Amazing Value…
“The content you are offering is amazing. There are SO many others offering similar services, not as in depth as yours, for SOOOO much more money. It’s sickening how much they want. 6K 10K etc. Thanks for being reasonable and offering even more. It took me quite a while to find you after viewing MANY others for MANY months who help authors. I chose you because yours is reasonable and chocked full of goodies. Plus it seems like you really want to help people succeed.”

I finally feel like I have a plan…
“I was sworn off on “courses,” but because you seemed to advertise yours as the anti-course—no magical thinking—I was intrigued and signed up. I just wanted you to know that you’ve been so valuable to me this past year. I have genuinely learned so much from you. I love that there are no magic buttons or inflated promises—it’s just about consistency and making insightful marketing decisions, many of which I hadn’t considered until your course. For the first time since I started writing, I really feel like I know how to get there. You made that click for me, and I know that knowledge is what will make all the difference along the way. I can’t thank you enough for that. I’m constantly telling my author friends about your courses.”
Results will vary, and using these publishing and book marketing tactics will not guarantee any level of earnings or profit.

2022 UPDATE (Read Me)

Hey there, this is Derek - I made this whole page years ago and I realize it seems a bit aggressive and spammy. I'm an introvert dancing on the line between uncomfortable self-promotion and invisibility. However, my resources definitely work, and the email series and nearly 7+ hours of free book marketing videos you get instant access to by signing up are as good as the stuff others are charging a lot of money for (I know, because authors keep telling me they prefer my free resources to the more expensive stuff).

Also all of these tactics are evergreen: because Guerrilla Publishing is not really about book marketing; it's about making sure you package and position your book to sell. That's the crucial ingredient most authors miss that no amount of marketing can fix. There is an option to upgrade for coaching and feedback should you need it; however I'm also in the middle of building a new course called the "21 Day Author Platform" that's super popular so far. If you sign up I'll give you a hefty discount so you can get in at the preorder price.

I've been talking about publishing and teaching authors for years, and have made videos in Bali, Montenegro, and even some castles we rented. I love writing, I love books, and I try to share as much information as possible to help new authors succeed faster... but I can't help unless you go through my materials and learn as much as possible.
