You can DO IT YOURSELF: Sacred Tree offers competitive and fully comprehensive packages along with personal and professional support to help you get your book and/or eBook out into the world. But if you want to learn this yourself and thus control every aspect of your book project from manuscript to final prints, we offer an extensive range of workshops where we teach you.
HALF DAY WORKSHOPS!
Your book manuscript is complete and now you are very excited about getting your book out into the world and to your clients. One of the least expensive and immediate methods is to create an eBook -- an electronic book that your clients can download onto their iPhones or tablets.
An eBook can be created and uploaded onto an international website such as Amazon and others in this short, afternoon or morning workshop. We teach you how to turn a simple WORD document into an ePub or Mobi file by utilizing free software. We teach you how to create a ToC file, bookmark sections and create hyperlinks within your book, as well as then uploading the file onto your chosen book website.
FULL DAY WORKSHOPS:
For a more comprehensive overview of eBooks and very basic print books, we offer a full day workshop where both kinds of books are explained and we show you how to turn your manuscript into an eBook and a Print Book. We discuss ISBN Numbers and show you how to get your own, how to add photographs or illustrations within your print and eBook, plus all the legalities of publishing.
This workshop is an intense one-day workshop that will gently guide you through all the basics.
This very intensive workshop is only meant for those who already have good computer and keyboarding skills and wish to not only create their print and eBook, but also create a beautiful, full colour cover using free to download photo-shop-like software.
We will examine all aspects of self-publishing from manuscript to fully printed books and eBooks. We will show you the short-cuts and nifty little tricks we have gleaned from years of working in the industry. This weekend workshop is intense and will require you to bring your laptop with you. We also give you the links to download the free software along with other free software that can help you create the best book in your field.
Finally, we will cover marketing your book by using social media and other tried and true methods.
This is a brief outline of the kinds of workshops we offer. They are available at regular intervals in all major centres. Please contact us for a more comprehensive outline of the workshops, dates, times and costs involved.
