Description

My name is Dmitriy Kushnir, and I am an indie author.  I have designed this course for individuals, who are interested in writing, editing and publishing a book on their own, and they want to do most of the work themselves.  I can personally relate to how it is to know exactly what you're doing, when you are faced with such a challenge for the first time.  In this course you will learn how to:  write your book, edit your book, market your book through various channels, publish your book, deal with reviews of your work, arrange for your book tour and even to plan years ahead.

Even if you're not serious about writing your own book, but are simply considering it as a possibility, you may want to consider this course.  This course will provide you an insight into what it means to be an independently published author.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone aspiring to write and publish a book, without going through expensive publishers
