Not long ago, Jim Paris and Bob Yetman had the opportunity to co-host a special video training addition to the James L. Paris Online Publishing Course, called The Shortcut Publishing Method: From Idea to Amazon in 2 Weeks! The purpose behind the creation of the material was to help those people who just “know” they have a book inside of them…to see, in detail, just how easy it can be to bring their thoughts into published book form in a short period of time.
While the technical aspects of how to produce an ebook for sale at Amazon are certainly part of learning to become an ebook author (the course also covers how to get started as a physical book author at Amazon), those things, as daunting as they may seem, are among the easiest of elements to negotiate; more difficult to overcome, typically, are the mental and emotional barriers that so often plague writers, particularly at the outset of a project. It is precisely for the purpose of helping budding writers to knock down those barriers that The Shortcut Publishing Method was added to the course video offerings.
Look at a blog piece written some months back by author Nathan Bransford, and when you do, focus even more on the comments than on the article itself (which is very brief). Regarding what these people have to say about their biggest writing obstacles: Do they sound like something you might say?
The James L. Paris Online Publishing Course, while containing valuable information for writers of just about any experience level, was specifically designed with the newer writer in mind, that person who will, more often, find himself (or herself) hampered by misgivings, tendencies to procrastinate, etc. The course addresses the details of how to get started writing in an online format, which has come to predominate as a writing platform, as well as provides unlimited, email-based Q&A assistance on behalf of a wide variety of topics and issues…from the technical aspects associated with creating an online publication, to providing a “second opinion” on manuscript drafts, and just about anything else. Course architects Jim Paris and Bob Yetman have together written a substantial number of books and been published in multiple formats over the course of the past two-plus decades, and, in addition to their work as self-published, digitally-based authors, have been “traditionally” published by some of the world’s best-known houses, including Adams Media and John Wiley and Sons, Inc.
But Wait…There’s More!
For the next few days, we’re going to “sweeten the pot” just a bit for those thinking about joining us: Until midnight, May 25, each new enrollee in either of the course’s two premium membership levels, Gold and Platinum, will receive, as a free bonus, an Amazon Fire HD 6 tablet!
Why give away a tablet? Because part of becoming a successful writer is reading the work of others, and we want you to be able to do that in style! That said, the Fire HD 6 is much more than an e-reader; it is a stand-alone, fully-functioning tablet on which you can browse the web at great speed, watch countless numbers of movies, take pictures, and do much, much more!
As it stands, the James L. Paris Online Publishing Course provides a wealth of information and assistance to the person seeking to get started in digitally-based publishing, but, this weekend, we’re taking things a step…a big step…further with the inclusion of this amazing tablet bonus offer. What a great way to begin your journey into the wonderful world of ebooks and ebook writing!
