How to self-publish a book on Amazon

Thursday
November 21
9:30AM - 11:00AM

Free

Self-publishing is no longer seen as a taboo way of becoming published. Many self-published authors have gone on to create a huge following and become published by respected publishing firms. Self-publishing can be a great way for business owners to promote themselves, but it can be a big learning curve if you have never done it.

In this workshop, you will learn the ins and out of taking your writing and book cover and getting it up on Amazon to sell!

Key learnings:

  1. What format you need to use to self-publish your book
  2. Why a book cover is a critical piece of your self-published book
  3. Why self-publishing a book is a great way to market your business
