There are four things that we are going to talk about in this course. The first is how to get started. We'll start from the very beginning and talk about where to get ideas, how to get your story going, and the best tools you should use that will make writing and formatting your book a breeze.
Then we'll talk about how to get your story finished. Writing a novel is a huge challenge, and I'll provide some tips and tricks that will make sure you get that first draft completed.
After we've gotten through our first draft, well go over how to polish your book to perfection, and how and where to find editors. I'll even provide a sample template you can use that should save you a lot of time in finding the right editor for you.
Finally, we'll cover how to get your book and to all of the four major online bookstores. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and Kobo. As well as how to distribute your book even further.
