Self publishing course assignment on Kindle screenOur self-publishing course equips you with the skills you need to publish your manuscript as an ebook or paperback. Self-publishing is highly satisfying. It can also bring financial rewards.

Our online self-publishing course takes you through each stage of the process. We help you harness your existing knowledge of Microsoft Word to format your manuscript.

You will also learn how to design and create a beautiful cover.

We then show you how to publish your book on Amazon’s KDP and Kindle and effectively market your work to maximise your sales.

This course is ideal for:

  • Beginners who have written a book but don’t know how to get it published.
  • Authors who want to raise their profiles and attract the attention of traditional publishers.
  • Experienced business people who want to build their reputations as experts in a particular niche or field.
  • Writers who want to take the first step towards an exciting career or hobby as a published novelist or nonfiction writer.
  • Enthusiasts who yearn to fulfil their writing ambitions on their own terms.

You will benefit from the training we offer no matter what stage of the writing process you are currently at, from experienced author to complete beginner. The course will also help if you want to earn money publishing other people’s work.

You will enjoy full support throughout from a tutor who has successfully published books on KDP and Kindle, using the very techniques you will learn during the course.
