Getting Published in a Nutshell

By Janet, Feb 6 2013 01:04PM

A last minute change of plan for the 'Getting Published in a Nutshell' course Pete was due to run in Derbyshire for the lovely Barefoot Coaching meant that we ran the course at The Refectory Table base.

Barefoot Coaching is where Pete trained to get his Post Grad Certificate in Business & Personal coaching. Kim Morgan, the creator of Barefoot, and her team are inspirational and we are flattered that they were happy to send their course participants to us.

Pete is the author of 'Make Your Creativity Pay', this experience, plus having coached others to realise their own publications means that Pete was in a good position to develop and run this innovative one-day course.

Pete showed, step by step, how to take an idea, develop it into a manuscript, and then publish on Kindle and hard copy.

The day included discusion and pointers about the whole process – from writing to publishing, how to identify what you can do yourself, and what you will need help with, exploring the pros and cons of both electronic and print publishing, marketing and selling – via Amazon, on your own website, using social media, and through affiliate programmes and how to use your book to establish credibility and boost your profile.

It was a good and productive day, punctuated with a good lunch and our 'crumbhuddle' mid afternoon break with cake.

Here's the feeback

'A lovely relaxed way to learn and some great people'

'Wonderful, as a Coelliac it was great to be able to eat everything'

'If you have an idea fo a book but worry about how to get it published this will demystify the process'

'Go - it's well worth it!'

'This is a really valuable day if you are considering writing a book in the near or distant future'
