Sample Talks (1)

How can I write and publish a book.

I go through the process of writing a factual or fiction book. I start with what you need (access to a computer and the Internet). I look at the right programme to use, how to get your work edited, formatted and published. I also look at marketing strategies. Most of the resources I point people to are free, some require a small outlay.
