At one time, the keys to book publishing were held tightly by a handful of publishers and agents. The author often gave up much of their creative control and often a good portion of their profits in exchange for a publishing contract, distribution of the book, and some marketing.

Likewise, some skilled authors could not find a publisher because their books would only reach a niche audience. With massive investments in printing equipment, marketing departments, shipping, and other overhead costs, printing books likely to be of interest to only a few thousand people would not be economically feasible.

The advent of ebooks and print on demand has changed all that. Now, an author can control every aspect of publication. In so doing, they maintain creative control and most of the profits.

On the flip side, they also have to either do their own formatting, cover design, and marketing or contract out those chores. Many shy away from self-publishing because they see it as very difficult and very expensive.

It Doesn't Have to be! In fact, you can self-publish a professional-quality book for free. "The most I've spent on any book I've published is $50," says Terri Main the instructor for this course and author of more than 60 ebooks.

"Because of you, I was able to publish all my of my 70 books as ebooks saving myself thousands of dollars," says K.H. one of Terri Main's students.

This course leads you step by step through the process. You will learn how to set up a Kindle Account, How to Use Kindle Creator to format your book, How to create a cover, how to add images, and how to edit your book.

This is a comprehensive course and there will be hands-on exercises. You will take a manuscript and turn it into an ebook for sale on Kindle.
