Online Courses, Courses
Budgets can be tight and for some authors the best option is DIY ebooks. To help, I’ve created an online course on Skillshare that teaches students how to make their own ebooks and gives them the resources and support they need to develop and sell them. The course has been on multiple platforms, and I’ve taught about 1,000 students in total.
Reviews (from Udemy version of the course)
Provides eBook Construction Other Courses Skim Over
Sabrina comes to life when she starts Sigil portion (lecture 9). The first 8 lectures suffer from poor sound. Her voice is crystal clear, but the volume is so low you have to strain to hear.
If you build your own eBooks there are plenty of helpful tips.
[UPDATE] Sabrina should be commended on her rapid response to my review in regards to the sound problem. Shortly after posting my comment she sent me a message that she had increased the volume on all of the lectures. In addition she promptly responded to several questions I had Kindle marketing. She’s a solid five star in my book.
Everything about ebook design
This course was very in-depth covering everything a person would need to know about ebook design. I’ve been an ebook author for a while and usually rely on others to do the formatting for me. This course is great for anyone looking to do it themselves and make their ebooks look exceptional.
Bravo well done
Awesome course. Got me up to speed using Sigil and other tools. Lots of golden information nuggets on tools, websites making your job so much easier. Brief quizzes scattered throughout the course kept you staying focused so knowledge stayed in your head. Sabrina knows what she’s talking about and easily relays it to you with her easy to listen voice. My focus was on Amazon Kindle but had my eyes opened wide about the other players and how to get ebooks uploaded to their online stores.
This was EXACTLY what I was looking for! Thank you!
