If you've ever wanted to publish a book, then this workshop is an opportunity to dip your toes into self-publishing and learn how it's done.

About this event

"Whenever a thing is done for the first time, it releases a little demon." Emily Dickinson.

In this one day course, our goal is to help you release that little demon so that you can see the possibilities when it comes to publishing your own suite of books.

Can you really publish a book in one day?

Actually, yes you can!

Here's how. What we're going to do is dip our toes into the world of self-publishing and we're going to publish the very simplest of books, a personalised notebook.

As part of the course, you'll all be given a pre-formatted notebook template, so you don't have to faff around worrying about book sizes and copyright statements. That's all done for you.

What you'll learn in the course is how to:

  • Clarify your idea for the book you want to publish.
  • Edit your notebook template, to create something unique to you. This is a requirement of Amazon.
  • Create your own book covers in Canva. Again, you'll get a link to a template.
  • Upload your book onto Kindle Direct Publishing, Amazon's publishing arm

To ensure that everyone can actually publish their book on the day, you will need to set up your own KDP Amazon account. Amazon requires that you provide a bank account (IBAN and BIC) so they can pay your royalties, and your tax reference number (so you can pay tax on said royalties!).

A download showing you how will be found on the attendance page.

This download will also show you how to set up your Amazon Author account so that you can claim it once your book is live.

Who is this course for?

  • Coaches, consultants and trainers who would like to create a branded book to use with their clients
  • Small business owners
  • Writers who'd like to know more about self-publishing
  • Anyone who'd like to try

Who is this course not for?

This course uses a lot of online resources, so you will need to be confident online and be able to use MS Word to a basic level.


  • You will need to set up your KDP Amazon Account before the workshop
  • We will be working with Canva and MS Word, so you need to have access to both of these applications. If you don't have a Canva account, you can create one for free.
  • We will be working online, so you'll need a consistent wifi signal.
  • We will be using Zoom, so you will need to be familiar with joining zoom calls.

You will be provided with:

  • An MS Word notebook template
  • A link to a Canva template for your book cover.

Course Outcomes:

By the end of the workshop, you will have:

  • edited your book template with images and text
  • created your own book cover using Canva
  • uploaded your book onto Amazon KDP (provided you have set up your KDP account prior to the workshop)

This course is limited to 5 people.

This course is delivered in English.
