7. Successful Self-Publishing: Learn The Basics Of Self-Publishing

You’ve got a great idea for a book and you’ve started putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys) or you may have already finished it! How will you get it out into the world? You could hire a traditional publisher but you’ll lose creative control and royalties can be 7-25% per book sold (with 25% being on the incredibly generous end) or you can self-publish, keep total creative control and earn up to 70% of the royalties of each book. Tempted? Take this course and you’ll learn the skills needed in self-publishing your book – cover design and layout, proofing, publishing, distributing, and marketing.

The Successful Self-Publishing Certificate Course begins by guiding you through the basics of self-publishing. You’ll quickly get answers to the big questions, such as why you should self- publish and the benefits of doing so and, conversely, reasons self-publishing may not be for you. There are legal obligations you need to fulfil and to self-publish requires money, the course will talk you through what to expect in both these areas.

With your book written and your working title in place. This course will show you the process of finessing the details, large and small, to get your text ready for publication. You’ll learn the dos and don’ts of titling your book and what to include in your cover text, how to self-edit or hire and work with an editor, how to prepare your text for the layout process, and what the established conventions that you should use in book anatomy, are.

Formatting should be invisible, unnoticed by the reader, but done poorly and inconsistently and the smallest of errors will pull your readers from the story, ruining the content of your work. You’ll learn how to use layout to enable your content to flow – with proper use of book sizing, page layout, fonts, spacing and alignment of text. Formatting for eBooks is also covered.

We are taught the metaphor ‘never judge a book by its cover’ but when it comes to books – we do. When confronted by a wall or screen of book covers and all you have to go off, as a customer, is a title and a cover, you will find yourself quickly judging covers and titles – giving just seconds to each. From this course, you will learn the do’s and don’ts of book cover design, from colour theory, graphics and images to fonts, copy placement, formatting and reproduction, to ensure yours is the cover that stands out and the book that gets bought. Even if you intend to commission a designer to do the work for you this essential knowledge will give you everything you need to understand what is needed and to get the cover you want.

With your files ready and book complete you need to understand the process of printing the finished work. The Successful Self-Publishing Certificate Course walks you through production, including the different printing methods available and how to convert your book into an eBook. It also stresses the importance of proofreading, how to proofread, and the common conventions used by proofreaders, should you choose to hire one.

Where many self-publishers fail is through not fully understanding distribution, because it doesn’t matter how good your book is, if no one can buy it you’re not going to make any money and it’ll be back to the 9-5. This course provides the knowledge you need to successfully get your book into bookshops, work with distributors and wholesalers, and price your book effectively for both printed and eBook versions.

You’ve published a book – don’t forget to tell people about it! Though before you publish, you need to have a marketing plan in place that will fit the content of your book. You’ll learn how to make sure your book is accurately represented in online bookstores and how to use tools such as social media, YouTube trailers, paid-for advertising, and mailing lists to promote and sell your book. You’ll also discover how to carry your marketing efforts on after publishing and through to your second book.

Who would benefit from this course?

You’ve written, or are in the process of writing, a book and want to publish it yourself, rather than work rely on a publisher, what do you do? This course outlines all the tasks involved and the skills needed to succeed in self-publishing a book.

There is no doubt that writing a novel requires many skills that test resolve but the good news is that even the complete beginner can rise to the challenge and create a compelling novel if adhering to the basic rules, writing while absorbing the many skills required to bring the novel to life.

Writing a novel, irrespective of the genre, requires the writer to put a little bit of themselves into each and every page. This means, utilising many of the experiences that you yourself have endured, including both the good and the bad times to make up part of the fabric of your storyline, creating a tangible and gripping read.

It provides a written reminder of this moment in time, a poignant chance to review as you bought your creative senses to the fore, and the memories and the evidence of this time is something that will stay with you forever.

You may have dreams of writing a bestselling novel and although you are entering a tough market place, filled with competition from other writers all with varying levels of experience, sometimes it just takes a solid story-line, a unique approach and a whole lot of enthusiasm to the written word, and it can happen.

Writing a novel requires a complex set of skills. Having an unlimited imagination that is both expansive and thorough will stand you in good stead. Having an enquiring mind that will let you delve deep into a variety of plots and scenarios will also benefit you. Good research skills, an ability to visualise, especially when creating characters that are lively and realistic, plus a dogged determination to continue writing right through to the very last word is a must.

When the characters start to take life and make their own way through the storyline, all you need to do is to dig deep, envisage to the best of your ability, creating an insightful back story that provides a solid foundation for the overall plot.

7. Successful Self-Publishing: Learn The Basics Of Self-Publishing

You’ve got a great idea for a book and you’ve started putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys) or you may have already finished it! How will you get it out into the world? You could hire a traditional publisher but you’ll lose creative control and royalties can be 7-25% per book sold (with 25% being on the incredibly generous end) or you can self-publish, keep total creative control and earn up to 70% of the royalties of each book. Tempted? Take this course and you’ll learn the skills needed in self-publishing your book – cover design and layout, proofing, publishing, distributing, and marketing.

The Successful Self-Publishing Certificate Course begins by guiding you through the basics of self-publishing. You’ll quickly get answers to the big questions, such as why you should self- publish and the benefits of doing so and, conversely, reasons self-publishing may not be for you. There are legal obligations you need to fulfil and to self-publish requires money, the course will talk you through what to expect in both these areas.

With your book written and your working title in place. This course will show you the process of finessing the details, large and small, to get your text ready for publication. You’ll learn the dos and don’ts of titling your book and what to include in your cover text, how to self-edit or hire and work with an editor, how to prepare your text for the layout process, and what the established conventions that you should use in book anatomy, are.

Formatting should be invisible, unnoticed by the reader, but done poorly and inconsistently and the smallest of errors will pull your readers from the story, ruining the content of your work. You’ll learn how to use layout to enable your content to flow – with proper use of book sizing, page layout, fonts, spacing and alignment of text. Formatting for eBooks is also covered.

We are taught the metaphor ‘never judge a book by its cover’ but when it comes to books – we do. When confronted by a wall or screen of book covers and all you have to go off, as a customer, is a title and a cover, you will find yourself quickly judging covers and titles – giving just seconds to each. From this course, you will learn the do’s and don’ts of book cover design, from colour theory, graphics and images to fonts, copy placement, formatting and reproduction, to ensure yours is the cover that stands out and the book that gets bought. Even if you intend to commission a designer to do the work for you this essential knowledge will give you everything you need to understand what is needed and to get the cover you want.

With your files ready and book complete you need to understand the process of printing the finished work. The Successful Self-Publishing Certificate Course walks you through production, including the different printing methods available and how to convert your book into an eBook. It also stresses the importance of proofreading, how to proofread, and the common conventions used by proofreaders, should you choose to hire one.

Where many self-publishers fail is through not fully understanding distribution, because it doesn’t matter how good your book is, if no one can buy it you’re not going to make any money and it’ll be back to the 9-5. This course provides the knowledge you need to successfully get your book into bookshops, work with distributors and wholesalers, and price your book effectively for both printed and eBook versions.

You’ve published a book – don’t forget to tell people about it! Though before you publish, you need to have a marketing plan in place that will fit the content of your book. You’ll learn how to make sure your book is accurately represented in online bookstores and how to use tools such as social media, YouTube trailers, paid-for advertising, and mailing lists to promote and sell your book. You’ll also discover how to carry your marketing efforts on after publishing and through to your second book.

Who would benefit from this course?

You’ve written, or are in the process of writing, a book and want to publish it yourself, rather than work rely on a publisher, what do you do? This course outlines all the tasks involved and the skills needed to succeed in self-publishing a book.

If you’re intending on becoming a publisher yourself, the Successful Self-Publishing Certificate Course provides a comprehensive overview of the entire process – giving you a great foundational knowledge to build upon with further, degree-level education.

The course starts you off with the basics and progresses you to the point at which you are capable of creating work of your own in this genre. You will be introduced to travel writing, guided you through the different aspects involved, and all the questions you have will be answered along the way.

Following an introduction to the course, and what to expect from it, the Travel Writing Business Course begins by explaining what travel writing really is (such as books, guides, brochures and more) and providing examples of some famous writers. This module then moves onto explain the necessary skills needed to succeed and how this course will help you to get there.

To increase your self-awareness and know your travel personality, which in turn will help your writing, the second module provides a short quiz. Here you will also be exposed to the different specialisms of travel writing, so you can understand which market you are planning to cater for, and the importance of knowing this.

Also included here is the way in which you travel, such as how to create a detailed itinerary and the pros and cons of both group and solo travel. Without funding, you aren’t going anywhere, so this module also discusses the various ways in which you can acquire funding, if your personal resources will not cover the expense.

The fifth module is all about writing. Along with discussing the importance of strong writing skills, students are informed of several drills and skills pertaining to travel writing.

It also advises you on how to get to know the editors whom you’re going to be working with to publish the travel literature.

The final module of the course aims to leave you with some inspiration for your own work, in the form of samples of important travel literature, which are discussed and dissected, to understand just what makes them stand out.
