What Will You Learn?
You’ve got a great idea for a book and you’ve started putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys) or you may have already finished it! How will you get it out into the world? You could hire a traditional publisher but you’ll lose creative control and royalties can be 7-25% per book sold (with 25% being on the incredibly generous end) or you can self-publish, keep total creative control and earn up to 70% of the royalties of each book. Tempted? Take this course and you’ll learn the skills needed in self-publishing your book – cover design and layout, proofing, publishing, distributing, and marketing.
The Successful Self-Publishing Diploma Course begins by guiding you through the basics of self-publishing. You’ll quickly get answers to the big questions, such as why you should self- publish and the benefits of doing so and, conversely, reasons self-publishing may not be for you. There are legal obligations you need to fulfil and to self-publish requires money, the course will talk you through what to expect in both these areas.
With your book written and your working title in place. This course will show you the process of finessing the details, large and small, to get your text ready for publication. You’ll learn the dos and don’ts of titling your book and what to include in your cover text, how to self-edit or hire and work with an editor, how to prepare your text for the layout process, and what the established conventions that you should use in book anatomy, are.
Formatting should be invisible, unnoticed by the reader, but done poorly and inconsistently and the smallest of errors will pull your readers from the story, ruining the content of your work. You’ll learn how to use layout to enable your content to flow – with proper use of book sizing, page layout, fonts, spacing and alignment of text. Formatting for eBooks is also covered. ouTube trailers, paid-for advertising, and mailing lists to promote and sell your book....
