When you write a book, you are putting a dream into print. When you take a course about publishing, you begin an adventure — seeing your words in print.
Even if you can only spend a couple hours writing each week, you can write a 175-page book within a year — at half a page a day. After writing 15 book in 5 years, I can say dreams do come true.
The classes I’ve created on Teachable let you take advantage of the techniques I’ve learned to be a successful author. Why spend months learning when you have a ready-made shortcut?
These links describe the classes and guide you to each syllabus at Teachable — the online teaching platform that hosts these pragmatic courses. Busy people need the information that will help them determine whether to get a book to readers and, if so, how to go about it.
I write a combination of fiction and nonfiction, primarily cozy or traditional mysteries. After publishing 30 books in ten years, people would sometimes as how I did that. Simple. I work at it almost every day. I had written screenplays, plays and (really bad) novels for more than twenty years. The combination of partial retirement and ebook publishing led me to write better novels and produce them myself. I have created classes, using the Teachable and LearnDesks platforms, to share ideas on writing and publishing; largely the latter.
