Write and Publish your own BookWriting and publishing your own book
Expected Webinar: Learn how to post your own material - from authoring to publication to marketing
I' ve been thinkin' about writein' a script for years. I' ve put together suggestions for a few of them and sent them to the publishing houses expecting just to be upset. More often I began to start composing my own textbook and then simply got bogged down when other work had to be done and invoices had to be made.
Eventually I resolved to get the funds to write my own publication and started my crowd-sourcing in January 2014. I' ve been able to collect 5,000 pounds in three month and use this cash for the production of Digital Video - A Manual for Language Teachers. So when I spent the funds to make the script, I thought it would take about three month to do it.
After all, I ended and released the notebook in the sommer of 2015, about a year over time. The British Council nominated the notebook for an EL tone in 2016, an honour for innovations in the Teacher Resources group. I' ve released five more e-books and a lot of curriculum and material since finishing this first volume; I've also started PeacheyPublications.com.
Every other work I have authored has been made without financing in my own day, while I also worked full-timers. It' a history, or at least a roadmap, of how you can make your own textbook a living thing. I would like to tell you a little of what I have learnt over the last three years - from crowd-sourcing financing for ebooks to becoming a professional online journal.
