eT@lking: about Epubs

November 7, 2012

Do you need a course on ePublishing?

We welcome you to join us for next week’s eT@lking webinar in which we will learn from Dale Pobega and Craig Nelson about their experiences with ePublishing!

In 2013, Duke Street Community House hopes to trial a course for those who wish to learn how to publish their work electronically and to take advantage of the opportunities the internet can provide for writers in promoting and marketing their own projects. Both Craig and Dale have published on Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform and have used tools (such as Mobipocket software) to create their own ebooks for a range of readers (Kindle, Kobo, etc) and devices (PCs, mobile phones, tablets)
Craig and Dale will talk about their own experiences as learners and independent publishers. They will also discuss their plans and share an outline of how they might proceed with translating their knowledge and experience into a course that will serve the purposes of those who want to create ebooks, use print on demand services and use social media and the web to promote themselves and their works.

Craig Nelson spent 35 years as a business professional in manufacturing, corporate, retail and IT sales in the United States.  He moved to Australia in 2007 and wrote his first Sci Fi novel which he initially self published electronically on Amazon in May, 2012.  He is in the process of developing two new writing projects which he will self-publish at completion.

    Yeah, LInda and I would love to join you for this one, having just been through the process of publishing her first novel using Amazon (CreateSpace), KDP and SmashWords. Linda wrote the book then I did most of the typesetting and preparation for ebook publication. It was an interesting weekend of learning, and I know a LOT more about the process now. Let us know when it’s rescheduled for.
