This course was recently updated with 23 new lectures adding 2 hours of content explaining how to fill in every Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) field while publishing your content in order to optimize your sales on Amazon. This new content takes the course well beyond simply filling in some fields on a web form by explaining how I publish books to maximize profits. Marketing your book should begin well before you publish it, but how you fill in the KDP fields to define your book's Amazon product page will determine whether your book blossoms or withers on the vine.

View the Entire Process Over My Shoulder
I know what you're thinking... Brian, self-publishing on Amazon is so easy that anyone can do it without a training video. Well, that's true, however some of us like a little guidance along the way.

We'll even spend a chapter outlining how to create a simple book cover using the online KDP interface.
