If you've ever dreamed about publishing a book in print you know how overwhelming it can seem. In fact, it used to be almost impossible to get a book into print without laying out 1,000's of dollars upfront or already being a famous author.
Now, thanks to new technologies and print-on-demand, you can take an existing eBook or book manuscript and, following the steps outlined in this course, publish your first paperback in less than a week using CreateSpace.
If you're not familiar with CreateSpace, it's an Amazon company that allows everyday people to easily create paperback books to sell on the Amazon marketplace and many other retailers. The amazing thing about it is that CreateSpace is FREE to use, and it even includes a free, easy-to-use cover creator with photos that you can use on the cover of your book free of charge. But as with anything, there is a learning curve to it and it can be frustrating trying to get everything in your book just right.
This course is designed to walk you through the entire paperback book creation process and help you get the full use out of the free tools that CreateSpace has to offer.

I'll walk you through how I would use that keyword list to create a book title and description that not only appeals to potential readers but also has tons of searchable keywords so Google will help your readers find your book.
This lecture will lay out 7 actions steps to make your path to publishing clear. Using what you have learned in this course you'll be able to go from raw manuscript to publish print book in no time at all.
Learning is easier if you are given the right tools and instruction. In every one of my courses I take you step-by-step through the tools and knowledge you need to accomplish your goals.
My talent is taking complex subjects (like Excel) and making them simple to learn. I wasn't always good at technology. There was a time when I didn't even know how to correctly turn a computer on and off. But over the past 20 years I've dedicated countless hours to learning about technology. Now I'm proud to call myself a self-taught technology geek.
The benefit to you is that I'm a geek who still speaks the language of normal human beings. I will never use a word that you aren't familiar with, without showing you what it means and how to use it to your benefit.
I understand how frustrating it can be when the instructor goes too fast or leaves out critical steps in the learning process. That's why I make sure to clearly demonstrate each step for you visually, so you can follow along starting from the very beginning and going along until you've reached mastery.
I am here to guide you on your way to success. You can contact me at any step of the way for assistance. Let me know when you're struggling with a concept and I'll get right back to you to keep you moving in the right direction.
I'm always happy to help.
I believe in you, and I'm here to support you in your learning process.
Are you ready to take your skills to the next level? It all starts with knowledge, and my courses make that part easy.
