Are there any prerequisites for enrolling?
This course is open to all HCTP graduates and current students.
How much time will I need to dedicate to this course?
The more you put into this course, the more you will get out of it! While the content is organized into manageable segments that are easy to digest, you can anticipate to dedicate anywhere from 3-10 hours a week to the steps involved in writing, publishing, and promoting your book. In addition, we recommend that you connect with our staff and classmates in the course Facebook group and on the five live support calls, which we have at different times throughout the course. Some other factors that may adjust your time commitment:
- How much of your book you’ve already written (if any)
- How much background you have in business, marketing, PR, and branding
- How much you want to interact with the moderators and our community forum throughout the course
Do I need to have experience with writing to take this course?
While we do not teach you HOW to write, we do give you support and guidance around choosing a topic, creating an outline, flushing out your outline, and creating writing prompts to easily get your book written. We also offer resources on editing services to help you dive deeper into your writing. We have had everything from first-time writers to journalists in the course. This is a great way to get your message out there in writing if writing is not your forte. No matter what path you choose, we’ll support you in getting your book done and published.
Is this course strictly for books about health and nutrition?
No. This course is for anyone that wants to write a book, period. In previous classes, we’ve guided students to publish cookbooks, self-help books, children’s books, novels, and more. No matter what your topic, we will teach to write, publish, and market the book of your dreams.
What if I don’t have an idea for a book yet. Will the course help me develop an idea?
Yes. While most of our students have a concept in mind when they enroll, the first portion of the course focuses on helping you to refine your topic, envision your ideal reader, and get clear on your “beyond the book” goals. Additionally, the coaching you’ll receive throughout the program will help you to flesh out your ideas every step of the way.
Will this course be graded?
Unlike our other advanced courses, the Launch Your Dream Book Course isn’t graded. Because the focus of the course is on writing, publishing, and promoting your own book, there are no written tests. The more you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it!
How much is tuition? Is there a payment plan option?
Tuition is $995 for students who pay the full amount upfront. We offer 2 payment plans for those who would prefer to pay their tuition in installments. You can choose between 2 payments of $550 or 3 payments of $375. Your first payment will be due upon registration, and subsequent payments will be processed two months after the last payment.
If I have further questions, or need assistance, whom should I contact?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of our Student Success team will get back to you shortly! Support hours are Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm Eastern Time.
