You've been sitting on your manuscript for a while now, overwhelmed by the research you've put into getting it published—and hey, that's perfectly normal. The Internet is bursting with so-called expert opinions, riddled with industry jargon and outdated promises. Oh, and of course, they all contradict each other. So, where should you start? What lies ahead?
Now, imagine you have a friend in the book industry—an award-winning author, who happens to have a marketing background and owns a graphic design company. Wouldn't it help to sit down with her and ask anything you wanted? She would break down the process in plain, conversational language and do her best to prepare you for a career as an author.
That's basically how this course is run.
Using my own experiences and those of fellow authors, I'm going to walk you through everything from choosing a publishing path (traditional v. independent) to navigating social minefields (like dealing with reviewers)—which is why experienced authors can benefit from the course, too. Everyone has a weak spot (or two). I can't tell you how many questions I've fielded from other authors about marketing alone, and you know what? I ask them questions, too!
That's the key to survival in this industry. You can't stop learning and adapting. Ever.
So, with that in mind, let's take a look at two course highlights:
A mix of formats keep the material entertaining, i.e. animated video presentations, screencasts, worksheets, etc.
I don't hold back. If I think something will be potentially harmful to your career, I'm going to tell you—even if it's popular right now.
I don't know about you, but I'm excited. Are you ready to get started?
