The Nonfiction Authors Association is thrilled to announce the new Book Publishing Master Course and Professional Certification Program, delivered by guest instructor Carla King.

Whether you want to publish your own books or help clients through the publishing process for their books, this course will help you:

  • Understand the paths to publishing: Self-publish on your own, hire a hybrid publisher, work with a small press, use a distribution partner, or get a literary agent and land a traditional book deal.
  • Create realistic book production and launch timelines that make time for editing, cover and interior design, getting book reviews, and pre-launch activities.
  • Publish professionally with industry standard book cover and interior design, front and back matter, headers and footers, tables of contents, and indexes for both print and ebooks.
  • Set up an official publishing business with an LLC and publisher name, a business plan, and a sales and distribution strategy.
  • Avoid legal headaches by learning general guidelines about fair use vs. copyrighted materials, quotes and song lyrics, taxes and permits, trademarks, scams, pen names, libel, slander, and contracts.
  • Register your book: ISBN (Industry Standard Book Number), LCCN (Library of Congress Control Number), PCN (Pre-assigned Control Number), and copyright registration with the US government.
  • Find and work with critique partners, peer reviewers, and beta readers to prove your book’s value, get a head start on editing, and make them a part of your book marketing street team.
  • Choose how to get your book into online and bricks-and-mortar stores with Ingram, Smashwords, Draft2Digital, PublishDrive, and/or by uploading your book directly to Amazon, Kobo, Apple, and other stores.
  • Produce professional books that meet publishing industry standards.
Meet Your Instructor: Carla King

Carla King has been known as “the Self-Publishing Queen” since 2008. That year, she committed to documenting the evolution of independent publishing services, tools, and processes for authors eager to bypass the cumbersome traditional agented book deal. She is the founder of Misadventures Media, which is the home of her Self-Pub Boot Camp online courses, Destination Published author coaching, and the Author Friendly Podcast. She is a multi-book author of memoir and how-to books and, just like you, struggled to find reliable, affordable, and professional publishing solutions.

Carla has spoken at hundreds of events to help writers become authors through the ever changing world of writing and publishing. She has helped authors with blogging, journalism, storytelling on social media platforms, and creating their own professionally published books. Since she self-published her first book in 1994, Carla has turned down multiple offers by agents and traditional publishing companies, including for her Self-Publishing Guide for Independent Authors, which is now in its fifth edition.

A technical writer by trade, Carla started her dream career as a travel writer after living and working in France. Just like you, she sought assistance to learn the craft and business of writing, authorship, and publishing by trial and error. She balances her work as a travel and memoir writer with her publishing work, which keeps her needs as an author at top of mind. She will show you how to avoid the many mistakes author-publishers make and help you publish professionally.
