Do you have a story, message, or idea you want to share with the world in the form of a book, but you don’t know where or how to get started? Considering self-publishing but you want to learn what the publishing process looks like, the steps involved, how long it takes, and how much it’s going to cost? This course will provide the information you need to help decide if writing and self-publishing a book is right for you.

The goal of this course is to teach the novice or aspiring author the steps, money, and the time it will take to write and self-publish a book. Learn how to get started on the writing and publishing journey. This workshop starts at ground zero, covering the cost of an editor, how long the editing process takes, getting an ISBN and bar-code, printing options, printing costs, and much more. A small investment on this course will save you time and money on what can be a cumbersome and overwhelming process. If you are on the fence about writing and self-publishing a book, this course will help you decide.

No previous writing or publishing experience needed for you to attend, benefit, and receive value from this course. WCDH is providing the space for you to learn how and where to get started on your writing and publishing journey. All you need to do is bring your preferred method to take notes, and your desire to learn what it takes to begin the journey of sharing your written words with the world!
