KindleRunners

KindleRunners Are Go!

We’ve fixed the internet problem and the course is ready to go!

Because people kept asking me, I’ve set up this course with Cyber_Shed in Blackheath to pass on everything I know about self-publishing.

The course outline is below – If you’re interested but not in the Blue Mountains area, I have a vague plan to set this up as an email course later in the year.

KindleRunners – Course Outline
The course is based on Face-to-Face sessions at Cybershed every 3 weeks to learn/extend knowledge of the technical side including setting up a range of online accounts. Sessions run 10-2 and cost $40. Carla is running the course and Simon from Cybershed is available for technical support.
The three weeks between each session gives you time to use what you have learned – you’ll receive email updates and you can always phone Carla.
