Karl Mamer shows you how to write, format, upload, and sell your book on Amazon's self-publishing platform. He walks step-by-step through the tools you can use, the basics of book design, Amazon's royalty model, and setting realistic sales expectations. Along with loads of self-publishing tips, one lucky participant will leave with a raffled copy of Karl's book The Skeptic's Book of Lists!
At the end of the workshop, James Ruth, the self-published author of Accept the Lies, a Private Investigator thriller, will discuss his self-publishing journey.
