“I tuned in every single day, and I’m amazed that you guys made it no-bullshit, straightforward, value-driven, and no upsells—I just love it. I want to tell you, quite frankly, out of all the free classes I’ve done in my life, this was the best training program I’ve ever done. I can’t wait to tell people about this. It’s just amazing. Thank you so much.”

PS. They have put together one heck of a training… so much content that I’ll have to rewatch it more than once. Bravo.”

Why is Scribe Book School Free?

You get what you pay for, right? Not here.

We believe everyone on earth has a story to tell and knowledge to share, and their wisdom should be put in a book so their legacy and their impact on others won’t be lost. Especially the people who can’t afford our services (which range from $15k to $125k+).

Everyone should have access to the exact same information as anyone else, so their books can be just as professional as the people who can pay for our services. That’s our mission, and with the uncertainty in the world, it’s even more important now than before.

People need the tools to be able to take their destiny into their own hands, and we can help by teaching you everything you need to know to write your book, right now.
