New Self Publishing Course to be Offered

As you might have noticed in some of my previous posts, I'm a might disturbed by "consultants" and others who are ripping off authors interested in self publishing by charging for services most competent authors can do themselves. Well, I'm going to do more about it than complain. I've decided to offer a course called Ridiculously Simple Self Publishing

This course will teach you everything you need to know to publish your book to Amazon as a Kindle ebook. These techniques are transferable to most other online publishers as well. Although, we'll discuss why you might want to stick to Kindle exclusively at least for awhile.

Some Topics Include:
Format Your Book in a Half Hour or Less
"Freedom of the Press
Belongs to Those Who Own One"
A.J. Liebling 
Setting up a Kindle Account
Understanding your Kindle Dashboard
Setting up your author page
Free tools to use to prepare your document
How to create a cover like a pro without using Photoshop
Self-Editing techniques
Doing it all for Free
Setting your price point
Optimizing for the Kindle Search Engine
Basics of Social Media Promotion
 ... And More

When the course goes live July 15, the registration fee will be $20 (still a lot less than just hiring someone to do one of the things we teach) but for those who want to pre-register before the launch, the price is just $10.

The course will include 10 video lessons that you can work through at your own pace. I want this to be accessible and affordable for anyone interested in this exciting new field. I've been told that I'm not charging enough, but if I charged much more, I'd be like those other people taking advantage of indie writers.
