About This Class


You may have heard that Createspace (the self-publishing arm of Amazon) will soon be merged completely with KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing--also an Amazon Company) and Createspace as it is today will soon be phased out. I am in the process of updating this class to make sure I am bringing you the best (and easiest!) way to self-publish but it will take me a few days to update this class.

HOWEVER, everything except for Lessons 6 and 7 will remain the same so you can be working on your theme, content and marketing plans while I am busy getting the technical bits sorted out!

I will be sending an email out to all of my followers as soon as I do that, so if you make sure you are following me so you will know when the class goes live with the new information. Thanks so much for your patience—just another one of those lessons that the only constant in our world is change!

Have you ever wanted to publish your own journals?

Maybe you're teaching a class or writing a book, and want to create a workbook to help your readers get more? After self-publishing more than 15 books including journals, workbooks, and sketchbooks I can show you how to do it!

This short class will teach you all the basics, including how to decide what kind of book you want to publish, planning and design of the book, and how to publish it with a minimum of headaches. I will make it as simple as possible to move you from "Hey, I want to do my own journals" to "Hey! I just published my book"!

This class is delivered in seven quick lessons with lots of encouragement!

I am already doing low content books and this class has provided me a few new Ideas. Really concise and to the point info, great work.
I am loving this class! I am trying to learn all I can about CreateSpace and this course is the best I have found so far!
This is a wonderful class for anyone who wants to self publish a book. It's no hype to say in a short amount of time you can publish a low or no content book.
