"Scrivener is the professional authors choice"
If you're looking to create your next (or first) eBook quickly and easily then you need Scrivener Simplified to show you how to compile and publish your ebook in a variety of formats including Kindle, ePub and more.
*TIP* Success with Scrivener is a matter of knowing what to ignore!
Your Training Includes:
When you ENROL IN THIS COURSE I show you how to ignore most of the overwhelming features so you can focus your time and create your eBooks quickly and easily ... in fact, you'll be able to create your next (or first) eBook in about an hour once you've studied this course... and before you think "Bogus!" let me explain how and why it's true.
Ignoring Most of the Features
Because most of what Scrivener offers is advanced manuscript mojo (that's the technical stuff that's cool for manuscripts ... but not key or critical to the job of creating your eBook.)
Like most software today, we only really need about 10% of it to achieve our objectives which is why, when I bought Scrivener in the summer of 2014, I was able to very quickly create eBook after eBook. I created and published 4 Kindle eBooks in very quick succession on Amazon and 3 of them went BEST SELLER too! (A nice bonus for sure.)
Speaking of BONUSES ...
I'm including my personal Best-Seller eBook MIND MAP that shows how I approach the design and development of my Kindle eBooks. This is the same formula I used to create 3 back-to-back best-selling books in 2014. It's yours as part of this course ... my gift to you because I know you really want to get your eBook done quickly and efficiently and with this course and the bonus material you'll be able to create your eBook in about an hour.
So, don't wait another minute ENROL TODAY ... because tomorrow you could be on your way to a best-seller.
In this lecture I explain the main reason (as I see it) why people find Scrivener so overwhelming when they first start. I cover the paradigm shift required to fully appreciate this powerful software and why (once you 'get it') you'll breeze along.
If you don't already have Scrivener installed this is the lecture for you.
Here's where I walk you through the 'need to know' elements of Scrivener without bogging you down with too much information - hey, we're here to create your eBook quickly ... not study the intricacies of the software!
In a usual word processor - files and folders are different "things" ... within Scrivener the difference is less defined, in fact whether your content is classified as a file (document) or folder ... or a stack of documents only really matters for structure. This lecture shows you what I mean.
This lecture shows you just how easy it is to get content into Scrivener. Can you say "drag and drop?"
Let's say you have one big long file and you want to split it up so you can manage and edit it easier, this lecture shows you how easy it is to achieve in Scrivener.
This is probably the single biggest paradigm shift you need to know to start understanding Scrivener. This application lets you contain content one way ... and produce/export various formats with the click of a button.
They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover ... but we do. This lecture shows you how to easily include on in your Scrivener project.
Here's where I show you how quickly Scrivener compiles the ebook we've been building.
So you've got your content into Scrivener, now you can also export/produce a PDF ebook with a few extra clicks - here's how.
It's as easy to create a Kindle eBook as it is to create an EPUB, PDF or other supported export format. Here's how you can create your Kindle ebook (MOBI format) with a few extra clicks.
Embedding images into your ebook is also easy with Scrivener, here's what you need to know.
Create the FRONT MATTER incorrectly and you pass up the chance to build your email list, this lecture explains how & why.
So your eBook has a cover, a table of contents and your main copy ... is that all you need to consider? In this lecture I'll walk you through some clever design considerations for your book layout that will help with your marketing too.
Here's a one-sheet that breaks down the process of writing a book into a very manageable 14 days.
In this brief video, I show you how to setup and install Amazon's KindleGen within the Scrivener compiler settings. Once complete, you can literally click to compile your manuscript into an Amazon .mobi (Kindle) ebook in moments! No programming required ... or pesky "terminal" or "command line" required!
In accordance with Udemy policy this is where I can tell you about other things I've created and are available for your educational and informational enjoyment. You can ignore this lecture entirely ... I'll sulk a little, wonder why you don't care but life will go on ;-)
