Are you interested in self-publishing  your book but don't want to do it alone? I've got you covered. DIY Publishing School from October 20-November 17, guides you step-by-step through the process of self-publishing your book. 

During this 4-week course, I will share with you my decades of experience and will guide you through the steps of successfully self-publishing your book.

We will meet once a week via Zoom where I will teach a specific aspect of self-publishing and answer your questions. There will be weekly assignments. I will be available for questions throughout the entire course.

As the course unfolds, there will be opportunities to get constructive critique and feedback from me and other students on the assignments, which will include creating a plan/checklist for self-publishing your book, create an effective cover, write an intriguing book description, create accounts on the different ebook and print platforms, format your book, create a marketing plan and create a strategic long-term plan. At the end of your course, your book will be ready to publish and you will have a marketing plan to get your book into the hands of readers. 

When the course is complete, you will have:

  • Understanding of how self-publishing works

  • A complete (or nearly completed) cover

  • Book Description

  • Formatted book

  • Accounts setup on the major platforms

  • Marketing plan

  • Long term plan
     

Because of the personalized attention you will receive, this course is limited to 10 writers. Writers need to apply and only qualifying writers will get accepted. DEADLINE, October 7, 2022. 

Requirements:

  • Completed manuscript that has been edited and is ready to go.

  • Commitment to complete the assignments and provide feedback to your small group of 3-5.

Typically when someone hires me to help them self-publish their book, it costs around $1,500-$2,500 and book covers can range from $100-$600+. By taking part in this course, you are not only saving money, but you are learning how to do it yourself for future books.
