Vanessa Grant offers a surefire very easy way to go from "I've written the best book I can" to fully published on multiple platforms in about 10 easy steps. With video and text to follow (and a very cool clock showing how long it takes) she takes the fear out of the technology. In this course you'll learn how to format, upload, make a print cover from an ebook cover and create a print on demand paperback and more. I found the steps easy to follow, Grant's explanations clear and concise (no wandering off topic) and actually money-saving. I've been self-publishing for some years now and I've avoided doing a lot of print books precisely because of the added cost of having a print cover made by an expert. Now I'm the expert! I highly recommend this course and would take more classes from Vanessa Grant in future. I rank this course a MUST for writers wanting to take control of their careers, their books and their publishing schedules.

This course was easy to follow and thorough. Step by step it walked me through what I needed to do to self-publish my book. The on screen tutorials were an added bonus. They were clear, concise and really helped with the process. Given that Vanessa Grant is a multi-published author and has self-published her own books, she has an 'in the trenches' kind of insight into publishing that I appreciated.

I found this a great course for learning how to self publish on Amazon and through D2D. Vanessa gives easy to follow directions in each segment and the visuals are very effective. She also has a clear speaking voice that is very easy to listen to. Highly recommended for people starting out on the self publishing journey!
