The time has never been better
to write and publish your first book. Are you ready?

first-time authors experience!

If you're committed to making strategic moves to write and publish your book, find your tribe, and leverage social media to get your book into the hands of your ideal readers (All while getting "how to" info from a six-figure (all from book sales) author)...


...Even if you're starting with zero audience, zero budget, and zero skills...

You're ready for...

The WPL Academy.

Writing by the Window
Limited spots available!


The WPL Academy 
Your Blueprint to Crafting, Self-Publishing, and Launching a Successful Book.

Copy of February Mockups (1).png

This is for you if you're writing your first book and want to self-publish it.

With limited spots available, this program isn’t just about learning; it’s about doing. I roll up my sleeves alongside you, guiding you through each step until your novel stands head-to-head with traditionally published books.

At The WPL Academy, you're not just enrolling in a course. You're gaining insights from a seasoned author and publishing expert with a track record of success. With over forty published books, I have experienced the triumphs and tribulations of the writing and publishing industry firsthand.

The Community:

The WPL Club ($2,000 value) is one of the best parts of the course (and well worth the cost of the entire program).

Housed inside a private Facebook group, The WPL Club is a great resource for support and solidarity (Not to mention daily coaching and accountability from me!).

Some coaches jump ship after a course launches—not me. I keep showing up and providing tips, guidance, and strategies—whenever needed.

That means that as you write or publish your novel, you don't have to go it alone. I'll be there, as well as your other fellow authors!

Closing soon!


I´m Laurie, aka LB, and for five years, I've coached incredible writers like you!

I've been an author for almost a decade, and when I'm not writing and publishing my own books, I work with authors to help them achieve their dreams of becoming self-published authors.

Before I became a six-figure, award-winning, and best-selling author, I struggled with the same doubt that most new authors have.  I started this journey without a mentor or coach, and my first book flopped. After that fiasco, I gave myself two years to learn everything I could about this everchanging industry and have never looked back.


I offer you the opportunity to not go into this blindly. I'll help you bypass the mistakes I made. You'll have insights that other first-time authors won't, which puts you ahead of the game, and best of all, you won't have to deal with vanity publishers. 


Whether you´re grappling with procrastination, battling self-doubt, feeling overwhelmed, or simply lacking a clear strategy, we'll get you through it. You'll be among like-minded people who will help get you to your destination.

Envision the boundless potential that awaits when absolutely nothing is holding you back and hindering you from publishing.


My passion lies in helping others like you achieve their dreams. I've worked hard to make this course crazy effective for all of our students.


Are you ready to experience unwavering support on your path to author success? 

I'm here for you.



I´m so glad you asked, let´s break it down...

Module 03.

You´ve landed on this page for a reason..

These are some of the most common problems holding my clients back from writing, publishing,

and successfully launching their novels. 

Sound familiar?

Doubting whether the project is worth even starting, putting off your book for another year

Dealing with self-doubt, imposter syndrome, or the fear of failure

Not knowing where to turn for help or finding help, but it will cost you $4,000-$10,000

Overwhelmed with all of the information on the internet and not knowing what to trust

Not knowing how to get your ideas down on paper.

The truth is..

Everyone and their mother has an idea for a book.

Everyone wants the benefits that come with being a successful author.

Everyone wants to make it happen.


But few know how, and they often settle for just selling a few books to friends and family. The average self-published author only sells 250 copies of their book.

We can change that!



My goal is to get that book out of your head
and out into the world!

Working from Cafe

No more delaying the book you've been wanting to write for months or years.

No more falling down the Google, Podcast, or YouTube rabbit hole, trying to figure out how to write and/or publish your book. Or to find the best way to launch it.

No more falling down the Facebook author group rabbit hole, looking for help.

No more going to people that have little or no writing and publishing experience for help.

No need to worry anymore if you'll ever find the writing and publishing help and push you need to get your book in front of readers.

Let's do this...

You've found the help you need! Hint: The WPL Academy

There are numerous pitfalls with opportunistic individuals ready to exploit new authors, but Laurie is the complete opposite. Throughout my journey, I encountered various vanity press companies and people trying to mislead me into hefty payments. Laurie ensured that my experience was nurtured with care and constructive criticism.Working with this company has been a true blessing.

J. Lewis. December 2023 Google Review

 In a word, is amazing! This woman is so smart. I connected with L.B. several years ago while in the process of releasing my debut children's book. She's a wealth of knowledge and is always willing to assist you in reaching your writing goals. I admire her passion and am inspired by her work ethic, and love her authenticity. 

M. Anderson. January 2024  Review

After spending $8000 with a publishing company that was supposed to do everything for me, I found that my manuscript wasn't even edited properly.  Thank goodness for LB. She took over and I found out the real amount is costs to publish a book and how to find my readers on Amazon. I can't thank you enought for your help. And FYI, don't expect the results if you aren't willing to do what she suggests.
