Bruce helped me realize a life long dream of becoming a published author. He provided me with a roadmap that kept me on task and gave me creative ideas on how to keep writing when I felt blocked. He is passionate about his work and in helping writers succeed. Bruce understands the business, creative and tactical steps that every author needs to be successful. With his help, my book made it to the Amazon’s best seller’s list within 24 hours of its release. It was a very fun and positive experience. Very grateful to Bruce!

Bruce, thank you for your generosity and expertise this year. You are the guru who got me started and who I trust as a peer in this fun and satisfying work. One of the things I struggle with in the big open internet is trying to learn from the right self-publishing guidance and self-declared experts. I admit I am baffled trying to understand who is in the book making business, vs. who is in the internet-marketing-to-aspiring-authors business. In your group, I feel we are largely a bunch of author peers learning and sharing. In so many other environments, I confess I can't tell if I'm learning from other authors, or if their books are merely the red herring, and they are actually selling get-rich-quick schemes, and I'm their customer! Are these authors? Do they do what we do? Who is actually writing and profiting from their writing, and who is getting ghost-written material compiled so they can create the appearance of an author empire? Both are fine, but I want to choose my mentors with clear understanding of what business they are in! I appreciate so much your transparency with your earnings and methods. – Chelle Landers

Shalana Frisby You rock J Bruce Jones ... ❤ all your freebies & generosity! Thank you!
Some very nice word from Shalana Frisby
Just wanted to give a shout out & say thanks to J Bruce Jones for sharing his expert advice and all the videos. After watching some of his videos over the summer, I was inspired to revamp my website and add a free resource library of printables that's password protected to attract email signups for a marketing list. It has taken me a few months, but I finally put it all live late this afternoon and already got 17 new subscribers in the past few hours. And, per Bruce's advice, I linked to all my books & site within each printable download & on the site pages. I'm excited to see how this goes & hopefully improves book sales :) thanks again! Btw, here's a link if anyone wants to check it out (it is Christian education printables) & constructive feedback is always welcome...

How to Publish Your Book FaceBook Group
Rebecca Holman Ummmm you are in this group. Get J Bruce Jones course as he walks you step by step. Worth the investment. My feeling is you must be willing to invest in your education or it is not a serious endeavor. I have paid a ton of money on other courses and wasted time hunting around on Google and YouTube..for one low price Bruce has given you the keys to the easiest most straightforward course on doing your book.
We have books being published all the time on the How to Publish Your Book Facebook Group, congrats today to Heather Laubinger Porazzo for her new book The Butterfly's Journey

I just wanted to give a shout out to J Bruce Jones for this group and all the free resources he provides and time in answering questions. I'm not very active here lately (too busy working on my books and other POD endeavors), but it is still my go-to for searching self-pub info. His YouTube videos were the first thing I found on self-publishing about 14 months ago when I started (so, so sorry those aren't available anymore ). In large part due to his recommendations for basic marketing techniques, my sales increased from "buy a nice dinner out" status to "pay the mortgage" status (granted we live in a small town!) in about a year. My email subscriber list has also increased greatly (see the screenshot below). I have a long way to go still for my goals, but I just wanted to say thanks so very much. I feel pretty grounded now in my self-pub journey and Bruce was a big part in getting the ball rolling for me even though the prospect seemed frightful at the time I haven't taken his new courses, but just going off his free resources, his advice has been very worthwhile Thank you! – Shalana Frisby
