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.
In this lecture, I talk about marketing. Marketing is very important to success in any industry in our modern world. I talk about how, when and why to begin marketing your book to others.
In this lecture, I speak about how your writing style is the voice in your book ... or even books. It is important not only to find your writing style, but to also develop it.
In this lecture, I speak about how imagination is the fuel for the writer's mind. It is very important to develop one's imagination. For a writer/author, the best ideas come during day dreaming. Daydreaming is a direct and shortest path into the world of imagination.
In this lecture, I talk about the final and very important steps to take, before you finally proceed with publishing your work. It is simply not enough to just have a completed book any more, so watch this lecture in order to learn of important steps to complete, before proceeding with publishing your book.
In this lecture, I speak of the publishing process for an independent author. I discuss different publishing platforms and services, which an author should be aware of, even if he chooses not to use many of them. Publishing is a serious step and should be approached as such.
My entire life is based on experience and learning. I have tried myself in almost every field: logistics, sales, insurance, transportation, teaching, etc. I have also obtained multiple degrees and certificates, including: A.A. in Business; B.A. in Business; and M.A. in Adult Education & Training. I am also a published author of several dozen books on various subjects.
