Ready to create a super-profitable author career overflowing with new readers, sales, & page reads year after year?

Yep, it's totally possible & I'm here to show you the way.

Before I tell you all about this life-changing program, let's talk about who it's really for...

You dream of turning your love of writing into something that pays you back. Maybe it's as a full-time income. Maybe it's high praise and recognition from readers. Maybe it's just the acknowledgment that you can repeat this process over and over for the rest of your life (because it's friggin' fun!). 

This course is for you whether you're...

  • a brand spanking new author looking to find a way to craft a life-long indie author career

  • a seasoned author with a book or two under your belt already, but you want to up your game

  • or already publishing consistently (rapid release or otherwise!), but needing to find an option that feels more sustainable

By the end of this program,

you will have…


  • A rock-solid plan for publishing 4+ books a year

    (because I know you want to build sustainable momentum in your author career)

  • A repeatable roadmap to follow from planning to promoting

    (and it will work whether you plan to write a book a year or go bonkers and write 12+ a year!)
  • Carissa's 6-weeks to 60K writing strategy

    (that will work even if you haven't been super consistent with your writing in the past) 
  • Access to the latest marketing strategies that actually work 

    (because let's face it, not all of them do)
  • A light at the end of the publishing tunnel 

    I know you want results and the royalties to show for it. I'll show you the way so you can stop wondering whether or not you're doing it "right."

Hey, guys! I’m Carissa -

inquisitive (and sometimes bossy!) indie author coach, metaphysics lover, and mom of six.

I created Rapid Release Roadmap® to help indie authors just like you learn how to craft a sustainable life-long career from their writing without getting lost in overwhelm or sidetracked by strategies that don’t work. (Yep, there's a lot of them out there.) 

I've been at this for a long time and I'm committed to developing a program that boils all of the advice out there into an actionable essence we can all apply today. 

Rapid Release Roadmap® was created to give you the tools to make building a prolific author career so much easier. 

I can't wait for you to start your author revolution.

“After I finished Carissa's course, I am proud to say I self-published not one, but TWO books within a two-month span! And I know with every fiber of my being that if it wasn't for this course, I'd still be saying "maybe someday" in regards to my author aspirations.”
