About This Class

Do you have a manuscript ready and are wondering what steps to take next and how to self-publish your words? Enroll in Monika Kanokova’s class to learn more about self-publishing your non-fiction book. 

Monika has self-published two guides for freelance creatives and has turned to Skillshare to help others follow her lead to get their manuscript out. 

This class doesn't cover how to write a book, but rather how to publish and market a book and how to establish continuous sales. It’s a hands-on manual guiding you from draft to a finished book. 

Perfect for everyone who is keen to explore the world of self-publishing and wants to learn how to use social media to establish continuous, organic sales.

This is a great tutorial if you're thinking about writing a book. It goes into great detail about Marketing - which is always tricky and very important. Great tips and tricks on how to do it and making the internet work for you! I loved the information about PR and marketing processes and how to connect with my readers. This helps a lot!

Succinct, fast-paced and inspiring... this is a great overview course for those looking for a starting point for self-publishing their first non-fiction book. I'm a self-published author of fiction and know only too well how overwhelming the planning and marketing of a book can feel but Monika is excellent at breaking it all down into manageable tasks.
It was my first class here and I was lucky to choose such a great one.
