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. However, no amount of tutorials will not give you the technical knowledge required to navigate the complexities of producing a manuscript edited and formatted for Ebooks and printing. When my manuscript was finished, I purchased a grammar checker and a self-editing tutorial to guide me through several stages of editing before having the book web-edited. I chose online editing because it was 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. But I only sold a few copies before realizing the whole book required rewriting. There are dozens of sites claiming to have the best programs and tutorials to get your book into print. I selected two sites and purchased their tutorials for 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. However, the new version includes several bonus packages at discounted rates, and you need the latest version to achieve a successful book launch. Over the years I have purchased many upgrades and bonus packages, and every few months they have a new version that will sell more books. I have come to the conclusion that I am a sucker for believing tutorials will improve my chances of writing that elusive best-seller, maybe I should learn the basics of penmanship?
