If you’re here, it’s because there’s a book inside of you, sitting on your spirit. A narrative that feels powerful, urgent and necessary. You think about it all the time and you want to see it come to life.

You’re unsure about how to even get started and you feel stuck. Or you have the idea but you’re not sure if anyone wants to hear from you. Or you’ve started to write but you’re overwhelmed by the labyrinth of the publishing world. Or you have no idea how to market and get people who will buy it and read it. You literally have no clue how to go about making this book dream a reality.

And it is so frustrating!

You are holding the map that someone else needs to get to where they need to go. Books are the map. Books are the things that last. They’re a historic marker that doesn’t go anywhere. They are legacy defining. And so many more of us (who aren’t white and male) need to be publishing our stories, expertise, joy, struggles, lessons.

That is why I am bringing the map for you to use, so your story can set someone else free.

New York Times Bestselling Author

My name is Luvvie Ajayi Jones, and I’ve written 4 books in the past 8 years, and all 4 have been New York Times bestsellers. I know books!

The books I’ve written have allowed me to retire my mom, have increased my earnings, and have allowed me to have access I never would have. They’ve opened doors I didn’t even know existed. And most dope of all, they’ve changed my life by how they’ve changed the lives of others.

And now, I am feeling convicted to help others enable their purpose through the writing of amazing books!

I’ve seen everything in the publishing industry, and I’ve helped others just like you navigate through it.

But I started this journey with a small platform and community, and built my way to this level. I’ve used all my learnings to build a machine that has helped me hit the New York Times bestsellers list in four different categories.

Most people who are successful in publishing don’t look like me. And if I can do it, you can too. I’m here to walk you through it.

The Book Academy gets you CLARITY that allows you to move forward on your book journey, with focus and CONFIDENCE!

The Book Academy is for you if:

  • You know you have a book on your spirit, but you don’t know where to start.
  • You know you have a story to tell, but you’re afraid that what you have to say isn’t book-worthy.
  • You’re trying to figure out how to get the book you’ve already written out into the world.
  • You want to write a book, but there is something that has stopped you from doing it. You don’t know what it is, but you feel convicted by not moving forward.

I’m going to help you learn about what it takes to become an author, in an industry that is purposefully shrouded in mystery. When we sit down to write our book, we’re not just putting words on a page. We’re unleashing a powerful force that has the potential to change lives. We’re creating a ripple effect that reaches far beyond ourselves. And it all starts by acknowledging that our stories matter, that our words can ignite a flame within those who read them.

And NOW is the time.
 

Join The Book Academy



NOW is the time for you to do something about your book dreams, because when we don’t move on what we are purposed to do, it stays with us. It wakes us up from our sleep. It makes us feel like we are leaving a piece of our assignment behind.

 
Questions You Might Have:
How long are the sessions going to be?

Each session will be 90 minutes. Lecture for 60 minutes, and then 30 minutes Q&A segment.

I don’t have a big platform like you so does it makes sense for me to try to write a book?

You don’t need a giant platform to become an author, and you don’t need a giant platform to have valuable words for someone else. Just because your platform isn’t massive doesn’t mean you’re doomed to fail. And that is exactly what I will teach you in The Book Academy.

There’s a lot of information out there about becoming an author. How will The Book Academy be different?

A lot of the information out there is theoretical, and there’s so much of it that it’s hard to trust. The Book Academy is created by me, a proven bestselling author across categories. I’m going to be teaching the specific things that have worked.

If I miss one of the live sessions, will I be able to catch up?

YES! You will have access to the replays of every workshop!

Let Luvvie Help You Write Your Book!

The only stories that don’t matter are the ones that are untold. And that’s because they are UNHEARD. Your story matters when you tell it. Told, it has air and heart and ears. It is spoken into the universe and carried. But when it’s in ink, it’s etched into the world’s legacy, not to be easily erased.

That is why I am on ASSIGNMENT.

I know my story. You’ve heard it. I want the world to hear YOURS. It’s why The Book Academy is so urgent to me. We need more of your stories, lessons, expertise, and perspective. This has been on my spirit for a long time now. It’s felt like such a calling to put this together, that I haven’t been able to sleep for the past few months until we got this put together.

“Having a book changed the trajectory of my life. It allowed me to charge more for my keynotes and offerings and increased my standing.

Whether your book is just a whisper in your heart, a half-written love letter on your laptop, or a completed manuscript waiting to spread its wings, The Book Academy is your launching pad.

So, what do you say, friend? Are you ready to share your story with the world? To put your heart on the page and your book on the shelf?

This is the moment where ‘someday’ becomes ‘today’. Sign up, show up and execute on what you learn, and you’ll see success.

The world needs your story. Let’s tell it together.
