The fast path to getting published. Today’s Bloggers are tomorrow’s authors. Learn directly from a fast growing publisher!

Objective of class

To teach others how to create & publish content online, and promote both themselves and their work most effectively. New technology has eliminated barriers to getting published and the traditional publishing model is disappearing fast. Technology and the way people get information has created a whole host of new challenges and opportunities. Many authors who historically have gone the traditional route are now opting to publish their content online to reach a larger audience. The flood gates have opened to allow today’s bloggers to become tomorrow’s authors thanks to low cost ‘print-on-demand’ options that have finally come down and a growing demand for ebooks made possible by the proliferation of eReaders.

History of prior classes taught:

  • Taught ‘Blogging for fun & profit’ 3x for the Fort Collins Recreator.
  • I have personally consulted & led over 20 authors through the process of becoming a published author at www.50interviews.com

Concise course description:

The fastest path to getting published is becoming the only path to getting published. You will learn to build an online presence, loyal community & raving fans through blogging.  Learn directly from a fast growing micro-niche publisher who is in the trenches of the rapidly changing publishing industry.
