isn't the end of its story

Welcome to Financially Free Author, where we help coaches, speakers, and authors of all kinds to keep selling books AFTER the launch is over!

You poured your heart and soul into writing a book, and the world needs to hear your message! But what happens when your sales fizzle out after the initial launch?

I help authors like you set up systems and signposts

that guide people to your book night and day!

What Is A Book Sales Funnel?

The truth is, if you don't set up your marketing strategy correctly after your book launch, the book will become just another piece of content.

A funnel is a system that sets your book up to sell FOR you (on auto-pilot) 24 hours a day like a sales team that never sleeps.

A book funnel is a gift you give to serve your audience...

while also growing your business with ease!

A funnel totally ready to send people just one week.

With a Funnel By Friday you'll start by scheduling a kick-off call for a Monday where we will figure out the shape of your funnel, get me access to your systems, talk about whether your current tech can support a funnel and any other pieces you may need.

By Wednesday the funnel will be drafted and ready for testing and tweaking. You and I will go through it and you can request edits and updates.

On Friday the final funnel will be up and running, ready for you to promote.

The sooner you have a functional funnel, the sooner you can start getting clients and sales from it.

There's so much that can be done once you have your funnel ready and the longer it takes, the more days of potential revenue are lost.

For many coaches, getting just a single client through the funnel pays for the build...and the funnel lasts forever!

See examples on the case studies page.

No matter what kind of funnel your business needs, I can build it for you in just one week.

Watch the mini-webinar above to learn about four potential types of sales funnels you could choose or tell me about your business and we'll figure out the best fit for you.

Saw a funnel someone else used that you liked? I can create a similar one for you.


I am gifted at seeing the perfect funnel structure for each unique business. It's as clear to me as following a map.


Related to my gift of seeing funnels in everything I look at, I'm able to see the compelling hook in other people's businesses.

I write conversion-based sales copy and emails while still being in your voice.


Though my education is in writing, over the last several years I've had a lot of practice in webdesign and graphics. You can see examples on my
Case Studies page
(and, of course, I designed everything on this site!)


The bane of most creatives' existance but I love digging into the tech and making it all communicate together!

Hi, I'm Carolyn and I know what it's like to not show up for your business because things aren't ready! 

There's nothing wrong with wanting to have your ducks in a row, to know that your website is optimized and ready to support you while you work on getting visible. 

I am a total systems and process nerd, though I didn't realize it for a very long time. After all, my education is in creative writing and poetry!

In my mid-thirties I discovered a gift for sales funnels (of all things!) and now I'm able to do what I love every single day.

I've worked with dozens of coaches and helped them keep using their books to grow their business long after the launch.

I welcome you to stay in your zone of genius and turn over this headache to someone who loves doing!
