How would you like to be a published author by the end of the day... for free?
 
Welcome to to my Course.  Nothing is left out of this video guide that covers everything from creating a book cover to marketing your published book.
 
My name is Brian Jackson and during the last 8 years I've created hundreds of book covers and published well over 100 books.  In this course I'll explain the entire process to you allowing you to quickly become a published author given nothing more than a finished manuscript.
 
This course covers:
 
Book Cover
 
Fast and easy, create a free professional quality book cover using the Canva online graphic design tool and free images from Pixabay.  All you need is a web browser to have a finished book cover in under 10 minutes.  The process I demonstrate utilizes free Canva Kindle book cover themes to quickly create professional quality book covers including free images from Pixabay.
 
Format Your Manuscript
 
Quickly format your manuscript for Amazon publication using Microsoft Word 2010 or beyond (Word 2016 running on Windows 10 is demonstrated).  Learn both traditional style and use the free Kindle Create Word plugin to format your manuscript.  Following my detailed instructions guarantees a polished finished product.  The process I demonstrate ultimately augments the use of the free Kindle Create Microsoft Word plugin with traditional formatting techniques to produce very clean manuscripts that are a pleasure to read.
 
Self-publish on Amazon
 
Self-publish your book in minutes on Amazon in Kindle and Print on Demand (POD) paperback formats using the free Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) web-based interface.  Note that you can publish paperbacks via KDP or use the traditional method of switching to CreateSpace.  Once complete, you're a published author, but that doesn't mean that your done...
 
Market Your Book
 
Take the first steps toward marketing your book for free to become an Amazon bestseller.  Make money and friends as you gain readership.
 
And the whole process is free because you do it yourself.  Given a finished manuscript, a copy of Microsoft Word 2010 or later and a web browser you can become a published author by the end of the day.
 
In fact, I'm embarrassed to have to admit that purchasing this course could be your greatest expense... though I assure you it's well worth any reasonable cost considering the money and time you'll save to become a published author today!
 
Mac users should be aware that the Kindle Create method is currently only available on Windows.  However, the traditional method is my preferred method anyway ;-).
 
Don't forget the Learnfly 30-day no questions asked money back guarantee.  If you're not happy with the course, just return it.  So, there's no risk involved.  That should make your choice a no-brainer.
