Nothing is easy for first-time authors.

I am looking for a tutorial that will write and publish my Book?

Getting a book ready for publishing is a complex project for first-time writers, and that is why there are so many sites selling advice and tutorials. Many authors have become successful by integrating some of the best tutorial information with their knowledge to reach the bestseller list. New writers love those inspirational stories, and many believe they can achieve success by purchasing a package of tutorials. Like thousands of first-time writers, I bought into the dream of becoming an author via the self-publishing route. I quickly found out that a tutorial will not give you the technical knowledge required to navigate the complexities of producing a manuscript edited and formatted for Ebooks and printing. I purchased a grammar checker and a self-editing tutorial to guide me through the first stages before having the book web edited. I chose online editing because it is considerably cheaper, and communicating by email sounded straightforward.  I quickly encountered a problem and contacted the site, but two weeks to get a response was ridiculous. After several months of indifferent answers and rewriting their sloppy editing, I rushed the book into print with Kindle KDP. I only sold a few copies before completely revising it. There are dozens of sites claiming to have the best programs and tutorials to get your book into print. Most are owned by writers who have published and sold thousands of books and have a winning formula of how they learned from their mistakes so you don’t make the same ones. I selected two sites and purchased their tutorials to use their experience in writing, editing, designing, and formatting a book ready for printing.  There is one thing these entrepreneurs have in common, they are continuously updating the original information that was perfect when you purchased it. But the new version includes several bonus packages at discounted rates, and you need to purchase the latest version to achieve a successful book launch. Over the years I have purchased dozens of upgrades and bonus packages, and every few months they have a new version that will increase your chances of selling more books. New technology is changing the image of self-publishing, and writers have to keep pace with the ever-changing times, but purchasing new upgrades every few months is a costly learning curve to sell a limited number of books.
