Description : Have you always wanted to publish a book?Why not learn from someone who has been around that block multiple times?I have published through a traditional publishing house, but when my children wrote 4 books between them, I decided to self-publish those. After that, I published 3 more of my own books, with 2 more in the works.Self-publishing is not tacky or unprofessional. I received an offer from a large publishing house to re-publish one of my books after I self published it!Self-publishing means you get your book completed and ready for print or made available on electronic marketplaces such as Amazon's Kindle. It also means, you keep 100% of the income you generate, and you can control your projects yourself.While there are several steps to the process, it is not a difficult one and I share my fast-track secrets. You do not have to do everything yourself. I share my outsourcing tips and low-cost method ... it costs me less than $100 to get a book published. Alternatively, you can do each step yourself, if you are not time-poor.I also share my tips for the most cost-effective options of getting your books printed, so that more dollars go into your own pocket. Alternatively, if you are time-poor, you can use "print on demand" options, such as that offered by Amazon, where they will print the book and send it to the buyer and pay you your cut. I explain how these systems work too.The online course that is the companion to this book is available here : https://goo.gl/1kzMvT
