CAREER RESOURCE CENTER:
SELF-PUBLISH YOUR BOOK AT LITTLE OR NO COST
Do you have stories to pass along to your children, grandkids... or the whole world?
The nonprofit Career Resource Center of Nashville, Indiana, is now offering exciting new classes for people who have a book inside them, just waiting to get out. Whether you've already written a book, are currently writing one, or are simply dreaming of writing one in the future, these courses are ideal for you.
The first is "Self-Publish a Paperback at Little or No Cost." It consists of six weekly classes covering topics from preparation of manuscripts in Word format for self-publication, to actual printing of books at Lulu.com and Amazon's CreateSpace.com, to methods for developing an audience for a self-published book after publication.
The second is "Self-Publish an e-Book at Little or No Cost," showing you how to publish your book at Amazon's 'Kindle Direct Publishing' and make it available to readers worldwide, without spending a dime.
Your book does NOT need to be fully written to learn the techniques in these courses. Bring your manuscript, finished or unfinished, to each class on a flash drive, laptop or tablet computer in Microsoft Word format. This will allow you to apply the methods explained during classes in real life. Basic (but not advanced) skills using Word are needed for best results.
The instructor is Harvard graduate Danny O. Snow, editor / publisher of SelfPublishersMonthly.com, a new e-Book series available worldwide from Amazon, Apple, and Barnes & Noble.
Each course will emphasize what Snow calls "Do-it-Yourself-Publishing" with low-to-no investment, versus paying a vanity press hundreds -- if not thousands -- of dollars.
In 2012, 17 of Amazon's top 100 sellers in the UK were self-published. In 2013, Amazon announced that fully 25% of its top 100 e-Books debuted at Kindle Direct Publishing. This timely new course from the CRC brings a hot international trend close to home.
Students from previous classes have already made their books available on Amazon without spending a dime -- you can too!
The cost is just $75 for six weekly classes. You may attend class any Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday each week at 6 pm by appointment only; please call 206-666-5484 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat beforehand.
