Discover the secrets of self publishing marketing for Authors, Trainers, Coaches and Consultants and learn how it can take your business to a new leveraged level; you sell more and work less.

After publishing over 70 books myself, one thing I've learned about authors is that we're "creative types", and we generally hate the whole idea of business planning.

But in order to have a high profitable, successful author business, you MUST plan for it! You need to know many factors such as your audience demographics, your marketing budget, your marketing schedule and your production schedule among other things.

Smashwords is the world's largest distributor of self-published ebooks. 350,000+ authors have published with Smashwords for many great reasons and so should you.

Have you ever wanted to write a children's book? Don't know where to start? I will bring you through the entire process from start to finish. I won't leave a single stone un-turned and I'll be here to help you through the entire process.

Whether you have a character concept, a complete manuscript, simply a lesson to teach, or nothing at all, this course will bring you through the children's self-publishing process step-by-step and leave NO excuses for a book gone unpublished!

Thanks to huge advances in computer technology making your own book covers is not nearly as hard as it used to be. You can use drag and drop image building apps online. My favorite of these is Canva

For those few things that you cannot do inside Canva, there is also no need to invest in expensive image manipulation software because you can do them in Gimp for free. Even though designing a book cover can get a little technical, it's a skill you can easily learn.
