Learn How to Get Your Completed Manuscript Ready to Publish as an Ebook or Print Book
USA Today bestselling indie author Steff Green guides you through the practical process of formatting your manuscript so that it is ready to be published as an ebook or print book. This module is ideal for a writer with a complete, edited manuscript who wants assistance with formatting it to self-publish as an ebook or print book.
