Derek Murphy - Self-Publishing & Book Design Mastery

Publishing doesn’t have to be difficult.

In fact, publishing a book is as simple as getting it formatted and designed, then uploading it to a print-on-demand service like Amazon or Lightning Source.

But what if you can’t afford a professional book designer?

This bundle of courses on self-publishing and book design will not only teach you how publishers manipulate readers into buying books, and not only give you the confidence to design and format your own books, but will even give you some starter templates you can use to skip the learning curve and make your book more professional.

So you can easily format and design a professional looking book that will attract your audience, without making amateur design mistakes that kill sales.

Take the hassle out of book design.

Just choose one of our customizable templates, add your image, change the text and save it - it’s already the perfect size for your ebook. You can also use our 3D book mockup generator and promotional graphic templates for stunning pictures to share on social media, for maximum visibility.

A well-designed book can double your book reviews and cut your marketing budget in half.

It’ll encourage viral shares and instantly make the right readers eager to pick it up.

95% of what people consider “book marketing” actually happens before you publish.

It’s the branding, packaging and positioning that makes the biggest difference in a book’s performance. If you’re not a designer, you’re bound to make critical newbie mistakes (and professional book design can be prohibitively expensive.) Your book design is crucial to your book’s success. Don’t take chances with yours.

A poorly designed book will get you blacklisted from bookstores and be rejected by readers before they even know what it’s about. Shoddy book design will ruin your first (and only) impression. Instead of a calling card, it’ll become a visual assault and have readers clawing at their eyes (not good).

If readers don’t pick up (or click) your book because the cover doesn’t appeal to them, they’ll never read a single word of your story!

But I have good news - now there’s an easier way to make great looking books, without any fancy software or design skills. Grab this bundle of book design and publishing courses, and get everything you need to DIY your book design.

When I hired someone to format my first book, it was an epic fail. Then I got Derek’s DIY templates and was able to teach myself. Now I do all my own formatting and I can’t imagine not being able to make quick changes to my books whenever I need to.

Melissa Craven, Emerge Author

After watching Derek’s extremely helpful (and easy to understand) book formatting tutorial videos, I was able to put out a finished paperback that looked amazing using nothing but Word and a PDF editor. Highly recommended for all authors wanting a clean, professional looking paperback without wanting to break the bank hiring someone to do it for you.

Erik Straker, Incantations

Derek Murphy’s book formatting templates are a like a lighthouse in a sea storm of confusion that is associated with creating a novel. I watched the detailed easy to follow videos to format my novel. I can’t be happier with the result.

My package of DIY book cover templates and companion course will help you get a cover that sells. Discover the untold secrets to designing your own book covers - that helped triple my ebook sales… almost overnight. I’ll also explain the amateur design mistakes you need to avoid (every author makes mistake #3).


These templates were made in Microsoft Word (crazy, right?). The idea was to use a software most authors already have on their computer. They aren’t a perfect solution, but they have helped hundreds of authors create a cover they’re proud of. Travel writer Gabi Logan used my templates to create her book, and look how great it turned out! Author Femi Oyewopo also sent me some pictures of a business book he published recently using my templates.


These templates are not premade covers - they are training wheels to get you started, but should not be used “as-is.” You’ll still need to find your own art or photographs. For years I’ve wanted to create something even better, so I’m building an online cover design tool as well; it’s not ready yet, but when it launches I’ll build a new round of templates you can access.

Here’s a sample video that shows how to make a fiction book cover in Microsoft Word. The course videos are even better and come with dozens of premade cover templates for a wide range of genres.


Derek Murphy is simply the best in the cover design world. I’m a co-founder of a publishing company and recently hired a new cover designer. The first “training” I did was take him directly to Derek’s portfolio.

Derek, thank you again for spending some time on the Will It Fly stuff - it’s been a crazy journey and we’re almost ready to launch! I can’t express how much your designs helped in shaping the conversation around what the book cover eventually turned into. Thank you, seriously, for your help.

One of the most critical things for the success of a book is a cover design that catches the eye and makes the reader want to try it. Derek designed several professional covers for my own books and I can recommend his design skills highly.

You only get one first impression. Make it count with my book marketing graphics and 3D mockups. Using these for your book launch or discount deal will dramatically improve conversions, and get more likes and shares on social media.

To put it simply — this is by far the fastest, easiest and least painful way to design and publish bestselling books

Is this massive package more than you need, and a little disorganized? Yes. But it’s also the best deal on the internet - some people are charging as much for just one individual template, or hundreds of dollars just for video tutorials.

Plus, most book design templates or premade covers aren’t made by actual book designers, who know what it actually takes to design books that attract readers, earn more book reviews, and sell on autopilot.

How much is your book worth to you?

Professional book formatting and cover design will cost hundreds of dollars per book. Plus you’ll be giving up control to a designer who may not get your vision, then have to wait around for changes and updates. The best designers are booked out months in advance. Sign up today and get the skills and resources you need to publish a bestseller.



If your book is invisible, it won’t matter how good it looks.

If you’re going to design your own book, my video tutorials and design templates will help you avoid the critical mistakes that will destroy sales. But even if you do everything right, you’ll still need to get your book in front of the right readers!

Most authors publish first and try to build a platform later, and have no idea how to get reviews or keep their book selling long-term. I want to help you market your books and reach your readers, so I’m including my $297 course on book marketing here as a limited time bonus.

★ How to get massive amounts of FREE publicity and visibility
★ The weird process I use to make sure there’s massive demand for my book
★ How I built an email list of 8500 readers BEFORE I published my first book
★ How to get long term, evergreen traffic and put your sales on autopilot
★ Keyword research to make sure there’s massive demand for my book
★ How to build an author website and what to blog about
★ How to get 100+ book reviews in less than a week
★ Why book marketing is a waste of time (unless you do this)
★ How to EASILY launch a book to #1 bestseller, without

Reach Your Readers is my first course, so it’s a little rough, but there’s tons of specific tips you won’t find anywhere else.
