Class on Publishing with KDP Amazon




KDP Amazon is a popular and inexpensive method by which authors can self-publish their books. This is a hands on class where Rose will walk you through setting up your Amazon account, and upload your print book and/or e-book if they are ready to go, or get you started if you are still working on them.

This class is sponsored by SouthWest Writers and held via Zoom over three Thursdays during February.  Rose has set things up so that the same class is being held twice in one day, so that those who prefer days can attend the class at 1pm, and those who work can attend at 6pm. Each session is 2 hours long.

With over a thousand articles and 10 books published, Rose Marie Kern thinks of herself primarily as a teacher. In addition to her own work, she has helped several SouthWest Writers members through the intricacies of self-publishing.

Class will cover:

  • Setting up your Amazon Account
  • Getting ISBNs
  • Kindle tools for formatting and cover creation
  • How you upload a manuscript
  • Determining how much you should charge for  your book
  • Keywords and categories for advertising on Amazon

Cost of the class is

  • $45 for SouthWest Writer members
  • $50 for UNM OSHER members
  • $55 for all others.
