You're here because you're ready to bring your story to life. 

Hi, I'm Kristin Pierce.


When I jumped into my authoring journey with an assisted self-publisher, I never had a clue what was coming next.


Self-publishing didn't come with a roadmap.


There was no blueprint of how this process worked, how to best prepare, or how to expedite the process. I was constantly flying blind until I was thrown into the next stage, which proved to be inefficient, stressful, and wildly frustrating.


Determined to create a different experience of self-publishing, I learned all I could and set off on my own to self-publish my next two children's books.


In meeting many aspiring authors along the way who were full of questions, I knew it was time to share my learnings, techniques, and my understanding of self-publishing to empower those who had a message to share, too.


As an educator, I empower aspiring authors, like you, by demystifying the self-publishing process, giving you a clear road map, and teaching my strategies, systems, and learned experiences, along the way. 


The Author Atlas is the self-publishing roadmap that you've been looking for that will not only show you the ins and outs of self-publishing, but will also help you learn how to do it well.
