This course will introduce you to the newest online tools for publishing e-books, publishing to Kindle, and publishing to print. This is a great way to make journals, church newsletters and magazines, autobiographies, and oral history available in a broader way — or even create your own curriculum materials that are customized for your local church setting.
This course will provide an overview of free and inexpensive online publishing software, as well as new techniques to publish and market your books or materials. This class is for pastor-authors, church leaders, curriculum writers, church secretaries, youth leaders, and Sunday School teachers who wish to self-publish.
0.5 CEUs are available upon successful completion of this course.
