About This Class

In this class you become a published author...

In this, the third class in the Amazon Self-publishing (ASP) series, you'll learn how to publish your formatted manuscript using the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) web based interface. This is the second of a pair of courses to dealing with publishing on Amazon Kindle, the first being how to format your book for publication using Microsoft Word.

I'd recommend that you pause the class after each lesson in order to perform the task just described using your own manuscript. By the time you finish the class you'll have a published author.

Ask questions in the Community if you get stuck.

Best of luck and I'll see you in the classroom,

Excellent - we'd published our books on Kindle within an hour.
Like I said, I am looking forward to the other three presentations! Again thank you very much.





Brian Jackson


Born in Los Angeles in the middle of the last century, I have always wanted to be a writer. After twenty-five some odd years spent working in the computer industry in the heart of the Silicon Valley, first for Lockheed as a Systems Programmer and later for Cisco Systems as a test tool developer, I managed to retire early and begin my next career as a self-published author.

Along with writing and publishing my own novels I also publish the works of my wife, Melanie Jackson. During the past four years I’ve published well over 100 books in paperback and eBook formats. Oddly enough this includes eBooks on how to self-publish books and how to create professional looking book covers using the GIMP. I’ve also recorded and distributed a pair of audiobooks available for purchase on Amazon and Audible. Finally, I spend a portion of my time maintaining both my website and my wife’s website, which was developed using WordPress.

My last endeavor, begun in July of 2014, was to record training courses for distribution via Udemy. My goal was to provide low cost high quality screen cast based educational material focusing on my area of expertise; namely, self-publishing and book cover design using the GIMP. I then expanded my catalog to cover Web page development and Udemy course preparation.

My new goal is to begin recording custom material for distribution on SkillShare!!!

I currently live in the beautiful California wine country with my wife, published author Melanie Jackson, and Butterscotch the cat.
