DONE PULLING YOUR HAIR OUT TRYING TO WRITE YOUR BOOK?

Great news! You've come to the right place.

NO MORE WISHING OR WONDERING IF YOU'LL EVER FINISH (OR START) WRITING THAT BOOK. YOU ARE MORE THAN CAPABLE OF BECOMING AN AUTHOR

- AND I'M GOING TO HELP YOU GET THERE.

Hi there. I'm Kristen Martin.

I'M A SELF-PUBLISHED INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR, ENTREPRENEUR, AND WRITING COACH.

 

I’m here for people like you, who are ready to finally put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard), finish writing that book, publish it, and make a living off of your work. I know you’ve had those self-limiting thoughts. Am I good enough to do this? Is my book idea even any good? Can I actually earn money and make a living doing what I love? The answer, my friend, is a huge, resounding YES.

 

JUST 90 DAYS AFTER PUBLISHING THE FINAL BOOK IN MY DEBUT TRILOGY, I HIT THE INTERNATIONAL AMAZON BESTSELLERS LIST - IN THE TOP 25!

 

I share this because I want you to know what is possible. It’s possible as a self-published author to create meaningful work and reach hundreds of thousands of people. It’s possible to land on the bestsellers list without spending thousands of dollars on marketing efforts. It’s possible to make a living off of your writing - your self-published writing. It is all possible for you. How do I know this? Because if it happened for me, it can happen for you, too. And I’m going to guide you and show you exactly how to get there.

 

TIME TO DUST OFF THAT WRITING NOTEBOOK

AND PEN - WE HAVE WORK TO DO!

WHAT PEOPLE are saying about valiance

j. pardoe

I wish I had found Kristen's YouTube channel and coaching program earlier. Valiance is absolutely brilliant. It is made simple, easy to read, and is so educational. I value Kristen's coaching materials and this program is definitely worth the investment as I look to develop an author's career.

S. HollEy

When I first looked into publishing my book, I was so overwhelmed . . . until I found Kristen.  Her valuable, free content on YouTube was what originally drew me in. When she announced her coaching program for writers, I knew I had to make it happen.  To this day, it is the best investment I've made.

C. WILSON

I honestly couldn't have asked for a better program. Kristen is such a gifted teacher. She's able to take the most complex concept and break it down into steps that are easy to follow and implement. If you're on the fence about purchasing this program, I just have one question for you. WHY?

T. LOWE

This program is everything I’d been looking for, but hadn’t been able to find. The process is so simple to follow with the way Kristen has broken it down. I know exactly what steps to take at exactly what time. This program has strengthened my confidence in my abilities as a writer – I’m absolutely beside myself knowing that I’ll finally publish this book. Kristen, you made the dream work!

L. DAVIS

I’m not gonna lie, I was really skeptical when I first looked over the program – especially with that price tag. Nevertheless, I knew I needed the support, so I (somewhat begrudgingly) signed up. And WHOA. The modules have blown me away. Not only are they packed full of information (and somehow still concise), they’ve answered each and every single one of my questions, plus I’ve learned things about the publishing space that no one else seems to be talking about or willing to share. If you want to be a career author, this program is it. It’s detailed, easy to work through, and insightful beyond words. If you have any hesitation when it comes to signing up, don’t.

M. FAUST

There’s a lot to be said for this program, I don’t even know where to start. Kristen has created something really special for aspiring authors. It’s clear as day to see the time and energy she’s poured into creating this program. Because of it, I finally have a legitimate timeline for publishing my book. As an added bonus, I no longer feel afraid to put my work out there. This program has prepared me in every way possible to become a full-time author and I could not be more excited!

Did you know that when you sign up for Valiance, you become a lifelong member? The writing and publishing industry is constantly changing, but as a member, you'll always stay savvy and never have to worry about falling behind or getting blindsided. You'll have access to the aforementioned modules and resources FOR LIFE, while also getting access to new resources, uploads, and information as they become available----at no additional cost!
