Writing and Publishing Books For Profit

Writing and Publishing Books For Profit

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 9:00am to 11:00am

Course Overview:

Writing a book is a fun and rewarding thing to do. Many first-time writers just start writing with their primary emphasis on content, style, grammar, etc. Little initial consideration is paid towards writing in a manner that will lead to getting their book published and hopefully getting paid for it.

Consequently, many good books never get published and many potential associated new businesses never occur. This class focuses on the practical considerations associated with writing a book that will ultimately be published and financially successful (and create new businesses).

Victor Johnson (Vic) has written six highly acclaimed books. He has about 6000 readers. Additionally, he owns a publishing company which has given him a good understanding of the practical aspects of publishing and marketing books for profit. The course is designed for people that want to understand the details essential for successful writing, publishing and marketing of books. See www.engineeringpathways.com (EP Press Tab) for information on his books and publishing firm.
