Self-Publishing Manual

Learn How To Write, Design, Publish, Print & Sell Your Book For Fun & Profit

by Bart Smith

Want to write a book? If the whole idea of writing a book baffles you, well, be baffled no more. Bart Smith’s SELF-PUBLISHING MANUAL walks you through every step of the process from the idea, to writing it, how to write it, how to get your book edited, how to design the front/back/spine covers (with examples), how to lay out the interior pages (with examples), how to set up and submit your book files to the printer (KDP.com), how to record your book, how to convert your book to a Kindle eBook, how to turn your book into an offline/online course, and how to market it. ALL IN ONE BOOK!

If that doesn’t take the guesswork out of how to self-publish a book what does? There’s also a complementary course here at MTC regarding the contents of this book for those who want to learn online.


Bart Smith, is the author of probably the best books on self-publishing there’s ever been written. How can I say this? Well, Bart’s written 27 books himself, many of which were written within 30 days (some a week or two); Bart does all his own cover design work; lays out the interior pages of his books on his own in ways no books rarely ever do which set his books apart; he records his own books; he’s turned many of his books into online and offline courses; and markets them too in so many authors wish they knew how to promote their books. Bart wanted to put all his self-publishing knowledge in one manual to help others write their books really fast too. It’s called BART SMITH’S SELF-PUBLISHING MANUAL. Help me welcome Bart Smith …
