Felecia's Award-Winning Lessons Will Teach You How to Use the Self-Publishing Industry to Launch Your Social, Political & Economic Empire
Welcome to this Empowering Post.
For today's teaching, I want to share with you simple steps that will help you develop your inspirational book that will crush it in the market.
There are many writers today who have a message of hope and inspiration for others. While some works are phenomenal, there are others, especially in the self-publishing industry, that are sub-par simply because of the poor writing and lack of editing.
While to some people, these technical issues may not matter, I want to highlight some useful tips to those who are looking to create successful, inspirational works. As you grow in your writing ministry, you'll discover how important it is to present a professional, empowering product so your audience becomes addicted to your work.
This is a lesson I teach to all my scholars inside LiyahAmore University, and I know this will help you as well.
So, let’s begin!
Step 1: Have Something Worth Publishing
We each have a story, and often times our stories are just what others need in order to succeed. One of the lessons I instill in my scholars is this: Often times, the experiences we encounter give us a clear indication of the people we are called to empower.
I know in my personal experience, I've ministered most effectively to women who have scandalous stories. I also have a keen ability to empower "the least of these," because I know YahWeh will use anyone who says "yes" to His will. The lessons I learned through first-hand experiences have given me credibility among the audience I serve; and my skills as a writing coach empower them to take their stories and build movements, ministries, or online businesses that impact the world.
In your case, I want you to think about what makes you and your story unique. How do your experiences allow you to instill hope into others who may be going through a similar situation? What lessons did you learn, and how can they lead others towards victory?
Select that pivotal story and frame your entire book around it.
I guarantee it will inspire your readers.
Step 2: Organize Your Thoughts
Now that you have an idea of what your book will entail, how will you put it together?
There are so many writers who believe it’s OK to jump into writing a book without giving thought to its organization and structure. This is a major mistake I witness among new authors; and when training my scholars, I teach them to think of their book as a compilation of tiny parts.
Firstly, they must know the main theme or purpose of their book.
Next, they need to consider their ideal reader and audience.
Following, they need to consider the book's format. In other words, do they want to create a devotional? A manual? A novel? A self-help book?
The more structure added to one's work during the planning phase, the easier it is to construct the book's content.
Step 3: Begin Your Research
Within our University, I spend extensive time teaching about the value of research.
When it comes to producing a book that will astound your readers, you want to present a product that contains valuable, empowering materials that will transform their lives; and most of the time, your best ideas will emerge after you've conducted research on your book's main topic.
One of the advantages to researching your topic is that you can find a way to give readers what others have yet to provide. Your book can fill a particular gap in the market, and this will enable your work to stand out.
Back in 2016, when I first launched the Christian Writerpreneurs Movement, I realized Christian Authors did not have the education and research to thrive in their writing ministries. So, I conducted research on best business practices, framed my content to fit God's writers, and built an entire virtual empire around this topic.
Over time, Christian Authors identified me as the go-to expert within this field; and in 2019, I received an award for my contributions to the independent, Christian-publishing market.
The benefit of conducting your research is that you will inevitably become an expert on your topic, thereby building credibility and credence to your professionalism and writing career.
This can open doors to many other opportunities; but only when you make the effort to provide the best value to your readers.
Step 4: Begin Writing Your Manuscript
This step will coincide with Step #2.
Now that you have the content and research, break your topic into other subtopics that will serve as the book's chapters. Once you have generated enough information for your readers, you can re-evaluate your manuscript, ensuring whether or not your content has met your book's mission.
Inside LiyahAmore University, our guest professor, Angela Meer, teaches our scholars how to construct their entire manuscript within 60 days or less.
Her unique formula has helped dozens of new authors master this process; and I'm confident her teachings will work for you, too.
Step 5: Hire a Skilled Writing Coach, Content Editor, and Proofreader
Unless you've spent significant years honing your writing craft, you will need an expert who can look at your work objectively.
Often times, when new authors complete their manuscript, they immediately assume the work will be marketable. In the years I've worked with self-publishing authors, some have assumed that because YahWeh gave them the idea for a book, then their works will automatically succeed.
But that's not how this process works.
The benefits of working with an expert is she will show you how to position yourself appropriately within the market. She will give you ideas on how to frame your story so that it makes an indelible impression on your readers' hearts. She will ensure your content flows well for the consumer; and lastly, she will ensure the content is clean of errors.
I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to hire someone skilled in writing and one who has spent significant years in this publishing industry.
Hiring such an expert will be the most expensive part within this publishing process; but the value you acquire will last for the lifetime of your self-publishing career.

"[My projects] would not be possible without the expertise of Felecia Killings, my writing coach, content editor, proofreader, and friend. Her professional skills have catapulted my writing ability in more ways than I can express. In 2016, she helped me complete The Space Between Memories and walked with me through The Mind of a Missionary as well. She helped consolidate my initial thoughts into this broad narrative of the missions endeavor...For that, I am very grateful."
- David Joannes

I will never forget the love and nurture that she extended to me over the years. All that she taught me is what I do in my business/ministry, sharing the same love to others to seek all that God has intended for them, according to His purpose."

"I was blessed to be able to work with Felecia Killings. She was able to take my manuscript and transform it to a whole new level. She caused me to dig within myself as a writer and communicator of the message I was to convey. She is extremely professional, courteous, and timely. Her response to questions and issues were answered quickly.

What I love most about her teaching style is her ability to listen to what you want; then she immediately develops alternative approaches to improve your manuscript.

- Mulu Afework
"I've worked with Felecia on two projects; she helped me with writing and editing my book. As an author, finding the right editor is very important. I had my book edited by someone who didn't do my book justice. But once Felecia performed the edits, the story flowed better than I'd image. I had found the right editor. Her skills are remarkable and I highly recommend her for any project you may have, big or small. As a writing coach, I wanted to take my business to the next level. Seeking out Coach Felecia was the best decision I made. She encouraged me to develop an online school, which I'm in the process of doing. She helped me create the curriculum, identify my audience, and provided me with the tools to succeed. If you need a coach to push you to the next level, Felecia is the person. She knows her stuff."
- Paulette Harper
"I want to thank my writing coach, editor, and publisher, Felecia Killings, for her coaching style and writing skills. Felecia stayed with me throughout the entire project. She heard and understood my heart in every word written. Her encouragement was priceless but not free. Every dollar spent was well worth it! Thank you for the skills that I learned in writing this project and the projects to come."
