If you're reading
this page, you know about the exciting potential
of Amazon's Kindle store to make your work
available to tens of millions of readers around
the world. I've published 20 ebooks on
Kindle since July 2011 and would love to see you
enjoy the kind of new, ever-growing income
stream that I've created.
Your leap into
digital publishing inevitably involves
frustration, confusion and a learning
curve. I certainly experienced obstacles
when I began this effort.
As an experiment,
I'm sharing everything I know about
Kindle success while shepherding up to 10 people
through the necessary steps to target a
nonfiction project for Kindle, prepare it
properly and upload it to Amazon with tempting
marketing copy and a plan for drawing attention
to the work.
Here's what you
get if you are one of those 10 people in the
upcoming Kindle Jumpstart program:
Title, Topic, Scope, Audience
II. Marketing Copy: Your Ebook
Description for Amazon
III. Marketing Plan: Specific Steps for
Letting Readers Know About Your Ebook

Benefits of the Course
learning the ropes from someone who has a solid
background in both book publishing and
marketing. I've self-published as well as
had books from traditional New York publishers get picked up by
the Book of the Month Club and featured on the
Oprah Winfrey Show.
For years I
served as the part-time editor for a small
press, and I have coached dozens of academic,
business, self-help and memoir authors on their
book writing and promotion. You won't hear me
recommend any sleazy tactics, and when I'm not
sure about something, I'll admit it.
"Kindle Jumpstart laid out a clear plan to follow and highlighted potential
pitfalls where time would be wasted.
This course will benefit anyone who wants to increase their chance of success in publishing an
ebook, from experienced authors to the novice. Being able to bounce marketing ideas and
hear how others from diverse fields were planning on promoting their book
stimulated other ideas for me. For me, publishing a book changed from being
an idle fantasy to a realisable goal within
120 days." - Dr. Nick Lyttle,
BSc, BVSc, Author, Dairy Farming for Health and Profit: Growing Tasty Grass
By taking the
course, you can:
Instead of wild,
promises, receive a realistic orientation to
the potential and pitfalls of Kindle
experience-based advice on issues like
Digital Rights Management, pricing, royalty
options, covers, ISBNs and Kindle's KDP
"The Kindle Jumpstart Course educated me on crucial aspects of Kindle publishing that I certainly wouldn't have known about otherwise. The course manual, the homework assignments, the interactive classes and the recordings of the classes together ensured that
the material was covered thoroughly and that, even after the course has ended, one can access it whenever necessary. If you are looking for additional confidence to publish your book, this course will definitely provide it."
- Jan Weel, Author, How I Learned to Let God Find Me in the Good Times and the Bad: A Spiritual Memoir
The fee for all
the above coaching, instruction, feedback and
support is $498 - broken down into three
installments of $166 each, 30 days apart.
"I signed up for Marciaís Jumpstart course having barely started my book.
Iím so glad I did! First, each session offered tips and resources that helped me sharpen my
focus and zone in on my target audience. Second,
my one-on-one session was terrific. Third, the class, even now thatís itís over,
continually inspired me to work on my book.
Throughout, Marciaís seasoned counsel pulled me
gently away from pitfalls and nudged me towards opportunity."
- Marcia Ross, www.marciaross.ca

"The very thought
of producing a Kindle version of my
book made me nervous. I anticipated
a long, frustration-filled process.
To ease the way, I took Marcia
Yudkin's Kindle Jumpstart class.
When it came time to create and
upload my Kindle book, I was well
prepared and confidently navigated
through the steps. Thanks,
Marcia!" - Caroline Grimm, Author,
