About This Class
Amazon Self-publishing 1: Why Self-publish Exclusively on Amazon
Have you written a fantastic manuscript but now you're unsure what to do with it?
Please allow me to make a suggestion...
This is a class that advocates self-publishing over traditional publishing. At the same time it takes a potentially controversial stand by suggesting that you should be publishing exclusively with Amazon companies.
This class also serves as an introduction and guide to my Amazon Self-publishing (ASP) series.
But before getting all tangled up with a whole series, the first four lessons in this class cover short but important topics that need to be nailed down before we can proceed:
- Why You Should Self-publish Your Book
- Why You Should Self-publish on Amazon
- Why You Should Enter the Kindle Select Program
- Why You Should Publish a CreateSpace POD Paperback
- Why You Should Watch the Rest of the Amazon Self-publishing Series
Please enroll in this class. After all, it's free.

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.
