You want to self-publish your book but have no idea where to begin. Lucky for you, class is in session!

In this class, you'll learn how to:

Build your author brand
Find your target audience
Set up social media
Pre-market your book
Ask for pre-release reviews
Gather a launch team
Price your book
Set up preorders and incentives
Publish and print on Amazon KDP
Order proof copies
Throw a launch party
Get your community involved

And so, so much more
Please note: This is Part 1, and Part 2 will take place on June 27. This means we’ll probably cover the first half of the above bulleted list on June 13 and the remainder on June 27.
