Self Publishing Hands-On

How to Self Publish

You’ve written the best book you can, now what?

The world of publishing has changed forever. Self Publishing is now no longer seen as the poor cousin of ‘Real Publishing’. With more and more successful traditionally published authors abandoning their publishers in favour of going it alone, Self Publishing is now the method of choice for many. Higher returns and greater control are definitely attractions but the downside is it can be a huge learning curve. And if it is badly handled, it can ruin a book’s chances forever.

Self Publishing Hands-On is designed to take your book from manuscript to the market. During this course, your book will be created and actually launched to the market, all under your own control.

Your personal guide will be a publishing professional who has over ten year’s experience in bringing books to the market.

Please note, this course is for you to bring your own book to the market. You will retain total control and all royalties and income at all times. You will not be signing over any rights or copyrights.

We will give you personal help and guidance in creating a ‘Back-of-Book Blurb’ which will help sell your book.

We will guide you in creating a cover which will help sell your book. We will show you how to typeset and format your book for paperback, Kindle and other eBook formats. You will have Hands-On guidance in publishing your book to Amazon’s Self Publishing Platform where it will be available as a Paperback or Kindle in stores around the world.

We will show you how to create your Author Presence within Amazon’s pages. We will guide you, Hands-On, in building your own Author Website. We will guide you, Hands-On, in how to start building and maintaining your own readership list. We will guide you, Hands-on, in how to use Amazon’s own advertising system to promote your book.

There are over 60,000,000 books listed on Amazon, over half of which have never sold a single copy. Don’t let yours be one of those.

You will need your own wi-fi enabled laptop and a valid Amazon account prior to this course.
