About This Class


You may have heard that Createspace (the self-publishing arm of Amazon) was merged completely with KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing--also an Amazon Company)

If you took this class before (thanks, guys!) but haven't published yet, I encourage you to review the lessons that pertain to the actual publishing of your book. (Specifically Lessons 5 through 9)

Thanks so much and of course, let me know if you have any questions and have a look at the projects already submitted—so cool!

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!
