					Publish and Sell E-Books Course Introduced at Community Business College

               In order to help unpublished authors get their work out, the
               college is offering a six-week online course taking students
               from start to finish in writing an e-book and marketing it as
               an additional source of income.

Modesto, CA October 12, 2012 – Community Business College is offering a new short
course in October entitled "Publish and Sell Your E-Books." The instructor-led course is
six weeks in length and the inaugural class will start on October 17th.

Students in the "Publish and Sell Your E-Books" course learn how to access tools to
publish and sell e-books in the world's largest online bookstores. Many of these e-
publishing tools are available free of charge. Students learn to utilize these tools to turn
manuscripts into competently published e-books. Course participants also learn how to
target an audience, select bookstores, and get their books distributed around the world
via the World Wide Web. The director of Community Business College, Daniel Guerra,
said, “this is an opportunity for many people to get into a new technology while it is just
starting to develop. E-publishing will always be a significant way people get their
information in the future.”

The instructor of the “Publish and Sell Your E-Books” course holds a master's degree in
adult vocational/technical education, with a minor in English. She has published 19
books for readers of all ages five of which are e-books. She has more than 1,000
publications in newspapers, magazines, and on the Internet. She also brings to the class
her experience as an acquisitions editor for an e-publisher, Webmaster of multiple Web
sites, and managing editor and Webmaster for an Internet magazine.

Why E-books?
E-books are making a huge impact in the publishing world, with thousands of previously
undiscovered authors as the bright glowing lights in its tail. Independent ("indie") authors
are becoming overnight sensations in the New York Times, USA Today, and on Amazon.
With their ease of production and distribution, there's more news coming out every day
showing that e-books now outsell traditionally published books around the world. This is
great news for authors, who no longer need a large budget to self-publish and promote
their books.

Publishing an e-book and selling it can be an excellent way for people who are
struggling in difficult economic times to supplement their income. Depending on the type
of e-book and the amount of time put into marketing, authors can make part-time to full-
time pay from their works.

Online Short Courses
Most online students these days have families, jobs or other commitments that make it
difficult to attend traditionally campus-based courses. Online course students have the
flexibility to study with some schedule flexibility built it and are receive structure and
support to allow for successful course completion and skill attainment. An additional
advantage of the online classroom is students can access the classroom 24/7 from
anywhere with an Internet connection.

Online cohorts start every month. The “Publish and Sell Your E-Books” course is entirely
Web-based with comprehensive lessons, quizzes, and assignments. A dedicated
professional instructor facilitates every course; pacing learners, answering questions,
giving feedback, and facilitating discussions. Online instructors have special
relationships with their students. Penn State World Campus instructor has said that
sometimes what students learn from online courses goes beyond the subject matter.
One advantage of taking an online course is it reinforces good time management skills
and organizational skills. "Anything in life worth doing is worth doing well, and anything
worth doing is worth scheduling," Turgeon has been quoted as saying. Students learn to
discipline themselves, develop problem solving skills, and how to schedule and prioritize
