Just what is the Community Access Pass?

With the All Access Pass – you get immediate (and lifetime!) access to all of the content. You will receive all of the videos, plus all of the audio files in case you’d rather listen than watch.

  • Written transcripts with links and resources from all videos
  • 1 hour publishing masterclass with Alexa Bigwarfe, conference host – getting yourself “book ready”

    What Attendees Are Saying About The All-Access Pass

    Last year I got the All Access Pass and it was worth every cent – so grateful to have the time and space to learn from all the speakers in my own time.

    I signed up for the All Access Pass because I just cannot get enough from these wonderful ladies! Since starting the Women in Publishing Summit, I have been so inspired and have begun to blog and write again.

    Just signed up for this summit and I'm very excited! I've taken Alexa Bigwarfe's Publishing and Marketing conference and it was truly AMAZING. I learned so much…made terrific connections…worth every penny. I'm sure this will be, too!

    Thank you. Thank you for interviewing all these women, compiling all these resources and best of all, giving it away simply for the sake of helping other women — in your own words — ditch the fear and just write. I’m not sure how many other 18 yr old girls are watching the videos in this summit, but I have to say they have provided the most detailed and helpful advice I have seen so far. (Though to be honest, I doubt I’ll be able to make the most of it until I’m older. Perks of not being 21 in Malaysia, you see). I’ll be sure to attend next year’s WIP summit and (hopefully) the dozen more summits after that. Again, thank you and have a good day.


    Holy cow, that Vervante interview was dynamic, ideal, everything I was dreaming of!

     I have now seen 4 presentations and gotten something out of every one.
    But I really wanted to see about working in a group and Kate [Butler]'s presentation was outstanding. 
    Betsy W.

    I attended your Summit last year and absolutely loved it.

    Schedule of Events

    We have an incredible line up for you in this summit!

    Day 1:

    Why Write a Book? What can publishing a book do for you? Day 1 is all about understanding the possibilities that come with writing a book. If you're looking to grow your business, grow your platform, expand your influence, these interviews will provide options and inspire you!

    Day 2:

    Your path to publishing success!

    You have questions about publishing a book – how to do it, where to publish it, what mechanisms to use… what are the different types of publishers? What is the difference between self/indie, traditional, and hybrid publishing?

    We've got answers! After this day, you'll have a much better understanding of what publishing options there are and what is the best route for you.

    Plus we dig more into Mindset, as mindset and personal growth are significant in our success in publishing our books.

    Day 3

    Production, Distribution, Legal – Editing, Design, Taxes, Copyright, etc

    What key elements do you need? Editing, cover design, layout. Plus everything you need to know about distribution, international markets, film & tv options, considerations of legal elements and your copyright, and taxes! Today is a key day for laying some key foundations that will help you be more successful with your book and your author business.

    We'll answer the questions of “What makes a good book?” and “How do I get it all done?”

    Day 4

    Book Launch Strategies, Marketing, Marketing, and MORE marketing! How to grow your platform and sell more books!

    Whether you have already launched your book or if you're still just thinking about writing it, you can never start marketing early enough! Many writers will say they quickly learned the writing was the easy part and MARKETING is what nearly cooked their goose!

    Today's session is JAM PACKED with marketing information, media information, and ideas to help you sell the heck out of your books!

    Day 5

    Tools, Resources, and Organizations to Help You in Your Journey

    We’ve got some great information on organizations, tools, businesses, and services that help with author advocacy and publishing support, writing, publishing, and selling your book.  


    You could spend THOUSANDS of dollars investing in courses, coaches, programs, and tools… OR you could spend $47 and receive more than you ever imagined. 

    If you know you're going to write a book, don't miss this chance!
