30+ Best-Selling Authors, Publishing Experts and INDUSTRY Leaders Reveal Their Best Strategies TO WRITE, Publish and Promote Your Transformational Book

More than 70,000 people have attended this author training to date. Many have gone on to sign book deals, become best-selling authors, appear on major media nationwide, sell foreign rights, and start or grow their book-based business. We invite you to get this training too.

Welcome to Season 7 of The
Transformational Author Experience

Dear Author (or Future Author),

The publishing world has changed… again.

Now more than ever — transformational authors are expected to give more, be more, and do more.

It’s not just about writing a good book anymore. From digging deep into your brand and content, to marketing and promotion, and becoming an entrepreneur who has a positive impact in the world… authors are expected to use their books to launch or grow a “book-based business™”.

And so, here we are again…

…pulling back the curtain on everything you need to know about writing, publishing and promoting your transformational book – updated for 2018.

To be honest, I can’t believe it’s the seventh year of this TAE training.

It’s strange to look back on the history and legacy. Back in 2011, I coined the term “transformational author”… to serve people who wrote books that transformed lives — self-help, business, personal growth, leadership, spirituality, finance, health, relationships, etc.

It was different back then. Easier almost. Today, it feels like there’s too much information. Where do you start? What’s the next step? Who do you listen to?

That’s why, for this seventh season…

I’m taking my holistic approach to the next level.

At the Transformational Author Experience… I’ve identified eight essential steps every 21st century author needs to know about and master…

And for this training, I’ve invited top experts on each essential step to share their best advice with you. This means you’ll hear from New York Times bestselling authors, top literary agents, successful self-published writers, millionaire author/entrepreneurs, publishers, and more. (See the full list below!)

Now don’t get me wrong… Some things don’t change. At the end of the day, an author’s responsibility is still writing a great book. A book that helps people, grows businesses and changes the world. And don’t worry, we have amazing speakers to help you with that too.

I’m excited. I look forward to seeing you there.



Exclusive New Report:

The Top 83 Transformational Author Strategies in this Playbook

Learn from New York Times Best-Selling Authors like SARK, Jonathan Fields, Marianne Williamson, Lisa Nichols, Gay Hendricks, plus half dozen more… as they share their best strategies from writing, publishing and promoting your transformational book.

The Most Complete Transformational Author Training Anywhere

With the changes to publishing, it’s no longer OK for authors to just focus on writing a life-changing book. There are eight essential steps to being an author in the 21st century. You’ll learn from 30+ experts in the Transformational Author Experience on each of these eight steps…

Paving Your Path of Transformation

A book begins with a strong foundation and that foundation is… YOU! Too many book coaches and publishing gurus out there today forget the “human being” underneath the book and promise 72-hour books and bestsellers in 90 days. That’s simply not realistic for a book that has lasting impact. This is about you, the author, getting grounded…and tapping into your true, authentic self and the important work you are here to do. Authors who skip this first step often crash and burn.

Strategizing Your Book

Let’s talk strategy. What’s the “publishing climate” in 2018? Should you self-publish or go after the Big Five? How do you put together a book proposal that gets the attention of literary agents? Should you do audiobooks, eBooks and courses? What is hybrid-publishing? Can you use crowdfunding to launch your book? What’s the big deal with pre-sales? We’ll answer all these questions… and more!

Writing Your Transformational Book

Let’s get into the nitty-gritty of the actual writing of your book. We’ll talk about what first steps to take that guarantee you’re headed in the right direction. You’ll also discover strategies to stay motivated to write (even when your schedule is packed), how to beat writer’s block and break through limiting beliefs… so you can write your best book. You’re going to discover how to write with purpose, vision and positioning in mind.

Creating Raving Fans

The common ingredient among all successful authors is having a large following of enthusiastic and loyal fans. This doesn’t happen by accident. There are tried and true strategies you can use to connect with potential readers, convert them into your biggest fans and inspire them to tell everyone they know about you and your book. Here in Step 4 you’ll learn how to do this… and more.

Launching Your Transformational Book

This is it. The day your book gets released into the world.. You’ve spent months or years writing. And you want your book to launch with tremendous success and momentum. While many authors miss the mark when it comes time for launching their book, you won’t. Here you’ll discover how to sell your first 1000 copies fast, get more book sales with Amazon reviews, hit the best-seller lists, and so much more. You’ll get all the current tools to win the “book launch game” … while not burning out.

Growing Your Book Based Business

Very few writers make a living from book sales. Yeah, maybe the Stephen King’s and JK Rowling’s of the world do… but the everyday author usually does not. The successful authors know how to grow a book-based business through online courses, coaching, workshops, list building, and turning readers into paying clients. Here you’ll learn how to do that too.

Mastering Money and Success as an Author

Listen. It’s every author’s dream. To sell a lot of books, grow a book-based-business and cash in on their expertise. But what happens when you start making more money than you’re used to? I promise you, this isn’t a problem you deal with “when you get there”. You need to prepare for it now. Success brings its own set of challenges. We’ll talk finances, the spirituality of wealth and money mindset here.

Fulfilling Your Divine Purpose

The unspoken reason many people become transformational authors is they want to know they did what they were put on Earth to do… and fulfill a higher purpose. The question usually is, “How do you uncover what you’re here to do? How do you tap into that calling and fulfill it at the highest level?” These questions and many more will be explored in the final step of TAE. Because you ARE here to fulfill a magnificent purpose as a transformational author. And we’re here to help every step of the way!

Christine Kloser

The Author Coach Who Launched a Movement

Christine Kloser’s philosophy as “The Transformational Author Coach” can be crystallized into one simple teaching: It’s the human being – the person behind the book – that matters. Nothing works, unless it comes from the inside… out. Christine began doing this “inside out” work in 1997 as a transformational event facilitator, and to date has trained more than 70,000 entrepreneurs, leaders and authors to write their books through this one core teaching.

She coined the term “transformational author” and debuted it at her first Transformational Author Experience in 2011.

The concept came about when Christine herself experienced a major setback in her business – where she was straddling two different industries and found herself lost in the chasm between them. Grateful to have found an authentic and aligned way to blend the best of these two worlds – and serve her community bigger and better than ever – her first class of TAE students numbered over 10,000 and she hasn’t looked back.

Many of her clients have gone on to become best-selling authors, sign traditional publishing contracts, and appear in major media including: CNBC, CBS, Time, Business Week, CNN, ABC, New York Times, Fox & Friends, and TEDx.

In addition to coaching, Christine has written and co-authored 20 books and has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, Entrepreneur Magazine, FOX News,, Huffington Post and, and is a regular columnist for the award-winning PUBLISHED Magazine.

To this day, Transformational Authors have launched book-based businesses using her popular programs: Get Your Book Done®, the Transformational Author Experience®, Breakthrough LIVE, and the My Time to Write® mentorship program.
