Put Your Book on Amazon
the Easy Way!
You’ve finished your book! Now you’re ready to show it to the world. But, if you’re like many authors, the idea of navigating the publishing process seems as complicated and intimidating as updating the switch and router settings on your home Wi-Fi. But guess what – that’s really the simplest step!
Writing your book — that’s the hard part. All the work from conception, to developing the first draft, to revising and rewriting, it can sometimes take years to transform that manuscript into the story you want to tell.
Getting it edited and laid out can have a steep learning curve unless you already know the steps. And a cover? Creating a masterpiece to represent your magnum opus to the world is no small task either. Getting it in front of the audience who wants to read it … that can actually feel like sorcery.
But putting your book on Amazon, as an e-book or paperback? You can do that in a few hours.
Put Your Book Where Your Audience Can Find It.
At the November 13 meeting Pat will show exactly how easy it is to upload a print book and an e-book with a live publishing demonstration. Come prepared to take notes and make a list of steps to get your book in front of the readers who’ll love it.
