Get inspired! In this four-week course, learn how to self-publish an eBook, step-by-step!

About this Event

The last few years have seen an explosion in authors earning royalties by self-publishing their books online, with successful self-published authors often appearing on bestseller lists. In an industry where competition for traditional publishing contracts remains fierce, digital self-publishing is quick and easy, and is becoming increasingly popular because it gives authors more control over their work and higher royalty rates.

This four-week course, on Tuesday evenings, teaches you step-by-step how to self-publish an eBook. You will learn how to create an eBook from a Word document, how to format your manuscript for major eBook retailers (Amazon, Apple and Smashwords), how to use their publishing platforms and distribution channels, and how to use eBook publishing software like Kindle Create and iBooks Author. You will also learn about eBook cover design principles, finding cover designers and editors while on a budget, eBook pricing strategies and income, and how to market and promote your eBook.

Educator: Dr Jay Ludowyke teaches writing at USC, and has been employed in local government and public libraries. Jay was the recipient of an Australian Postgraduate Award (a $75,000 scholarship) and her writing has appeared in esteemed literary and academic journals. Her book Carpathia: The extraordinary story of the ship that rescued the survivors of the Titanic was published in 2018.
