Is it Possible to Publish a Book in 2 Weeks?!

Written by Krayl Funch

I, perhaps like may of you reading this article,  have had a dream of writing my own book. {A goal of mine which is currently underway, you can even check out my cover drafts here.} But struggled with where to start.

How long will it take? Self Publish vs Publisher? Agent, No Agent? What’s the difference and most importantly, what is right for me? So when I recently had coffee with a contact through a mutual friend and she told me not only had she already written 4 books, but was now coaching others through the process I just had to get her on my interview series.

We have all heard of the Richter scale, but have you heard of Tara Richter? If you haven’t before you will shortly. Tara Richter is the Self Publishing Expert and can fast track you from zero written words to a fully published book in 4 weeks. Or perhaps you are looking for a slower ride, maybe you already have your book written but aren’t sure what to do next. Tara is still your girl. Watch and learn how starting before you are ready can make all the difference and that with a little support you can soon be well on your way to being a published author.

{And for all you cat lovers… watch for her feline friend to make an appearance.}

A Few Of My Favorite Quotes:

Regarding Publishing a Book: “I never said it was easy. If it was everyone would have a book.”;  ”if you want someone to kick your butt and get it done, I will do it.”;  ”If you organize your blog you can write a book in 6  months.”; “Just start writing. It will take on a life of its’ own.”

Regarding Business:  “My goal is to franchise Richter Publishing and have everyone write a book.”; “Most people build a business then publish a book. I published a book then made a business out of it.”

Write & Publish a Book Yourself Step #8: Kindle

Now that you have a paperback book, you can upload it on Kindle. If you’re not familiar with Kindle, it is a digital device that you can download multiple books and magazines to. You have to have an Amazon account in order to purchase books to download, however you do not need a Kindle device. They have an app on the iPhone and most smartphones and tablets to use.

Having your book on Amazon Kindle is just another way to distribute your book to as many people as possible. People are divided between which method they prefer to read their information.  I personally prefer to have a real book in my hand, to flip through it and be able to autograph it. Others prefer digital. It is convenient because you can hold hundreds of books in one small, compact gadget. Having your book in both formats is important.

In order to publish a book on Kindle you do need to have an Amazon account. If you already do, you can log in with those same credentials. If you don’t have an account you will need to sign up for one. In this chapter of  my book, How to Write and Publish a Book Yourself, I will walk you through how to do this as well as:

  • The KDP Select Program (to reach more readers and customers)
  • Book’s Copyright and Publishing Rights
  • Uploading Your Cover
  • Selecting a Digital Rights Management (DRM) (to inhibit unauthorized distribution of the Kindle book)

Write & Publish a Book Yourself: Step #5 Creating the Cover

Now that your manuscript is finished, you need to design a cover to showcase your book. This is the part that will sell the great content inside. They say you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Well, neither does your novel.

Designing Your Book Cover

If you do not have any design skills, this may be one of the more difficult steps of publishing your own book. Just remember that less is more. You do not need a really fancy cover to get someone’s attention; it should be simple and bold.

A tip from a graphic designer (my college degree): every now and then during the process, get up from your computer and walk across the room to view your design. How does it look? Sometimes we get caught up being so close to it that we forget to look at it from another perspective. Think of the books that you have purchased in the past. What did you like about the cover or didn’t like? Mimic the design that compelled you to buy a book. I personally like to place my professional photos on the front or back of my books because I’m branding myself. It also gives a human touch to my advice so others can relate to me. Deciding if you want your photo on the cover depends on the kind of book you’re writing. If the story is about depression, you wouldn’t want a bright-eyed, smiling face on the front. Make sure the images accurately portray the content.

Using Photoshop for Book Covers

Since I am a graphic designer, I do have an extra talent that allows me to design my own book covers. Nonetheless, you can do it too. I have used Photoshop and Illustrator on my first three books. Photoshop is the best tool to use because you need layers and to know the resolution of your images. As I spoke about in the last chapter, you want a minimum 300 DPI (dots per inch) for printing purposes.

In my book I will walk you through the step by step tutorial of creating your book’s cover using Photoshop (for free…even if you don’t have Photoshop or have never used it before!) and uploading it to CreateSpace: How to Write and Publish a Book Yourself.

Write a Book Yourself: Step #2 Start Blogging

If you have not already created a blog, do it now. It’s free and a great way to drive traffic to your website, to get your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) high in Google rankings for you or your company, and to write your book.

Once you have set up your own blog you will have a platform that allows you to organize your words. If you’re not good at just sitting down and writing 10,000 words, blogs can greatly help you finish your book. They are much easier because they’re done in short chunks. A blog should not be more than 2-3 paragraphs—short, nice and sweet bits of information for the reader. Also, if you start publishing small bits of information out there once or twice a week, it’s giving your audience little teasers of what’s to come in your book.

After you start getting into posting and organizing your blogs, you can start publicizing them and incorporating them into your social media to read a wider audience.

If you have never blogged before or aren’t familiar with SEO, don’t worry. The book will break it down step by step with instructions to walk you through the process.

Write a Book Yourself Step #1: Write Your Own Words

Write a Book in 4 WeeksMost people want to write a book at some point in their lives. The only difference between the authors who publish a book and those who don’t is simply taking the time to do it. If you do not think you have the time, money or resources available to you to write and publish your own book, think again.

Some people may think a ghost writer is a better, easier option—but these are your stories; this is your pain and/or happiness. No one can fully understand what you have gone through in life, so they cannot accurately express it on paper. Only you have experienced it. Ghost writers can also be very expensive. So not only will you lose money by going with a ghost writer, but you will also be losing your personal touch and connection in the story.

There is no short cut to get it done, but I can provide little tricks that will make it easier.

  • Utilize Every Minute. You need to take advantage of every spare moment you have to finish your book. There is never a right time to compose a novel. You will never have those extra minutes just looming around. You have to create during chaos. You have to make the time and effort in order for it happen.
  • Don’t Edit While You Write. Write when you feel inspired and don’t stop until you feel like you have gotten it all out. Once you get your thoughts spinning in your head you need to stop what you’re doing and write them down, even if it’s chicken scratch notes. You can always go back and edit later.
  • Use Google for Spelling. Google is much more up to date than Word.

If you want to write  a book, you can. But the first step is getting the words out. Just the idea of it can be overwhelming and stressful—which is why many people who want to write a book don’t. If you are new to writing or need help getting started, the full version of my book will provide you with some insight on how to make this seemingly impossible task, possible!

Richter Publishing also has packages where we can write the book for you to make it even easier! Contact us for more info.

Sunday Writing Tip


While you are writing your book, if it doesn’t make you laugh, cry or think… it’s not worth putting on paper. Your words need to move you and inspire you, otherwise they will not inspire others. I go through all these emotions while I’m writing my books, even this last one that is more a technical guide. You still need to weave a personal story throughout to keep people interested. It doesn’t have to be a lot, but just a few paragraphs in the beginning  to give it a human element that others can relate to. Maybe a funny  story of something that happened that correlates to the information you are going to inform the readers of.  It’s a skill learning how to do this. To educate people while keeping the  engaged and entertained at the same time.
