It’s a big learning curve, writing and publishing your own book – not to mention marketing, promotion, and developing a relationship with your readers via a newsletter list. There’s a huge amount of information on the Internet, but sometimes you can shorten the learning curve by doing a quick course. Here’s a guide to some of the best.
Mark Dawson offers a range of courses that address everything involved in writing a book and establishing a career in self-publishing.
The link above will take you to a page where you can read about all courses on offer. The best one if you’re just starting out is Self-Publishing 101; others address ads for authors and creating your own book cover with Photoshop.
