John Dwyer

John DwyerJohn Dwyer hails from the beautiful Beara Peninsula in West Cork but was forced to leave in order to satisfy his love of travel. Over the years, he enjoyed adventures in many countries across the world. Once settled back in Cork, he learned about digital publishing and published his first travel book High Road to Tibet: Travels in China, Tibet, Nepal and India on Amazon. Last year, he released Klondike House: Memories of an Irish Country Childhood. A book about his travels in South Africa will be published by the end of the year.

In this workshop, he shares all the tips and advice learned from over 6 years in digital publishing. After you complete the workshop, you will know how to:

  • Cut out the middlemen and sell directly to the reader
  • Maximise your royalties for each book you sell
  • Format your Word document correctly for digital version
  • Easily produce a paperback version of your book
  • Ensure you produce the best book possible
  • Get a great cover for your book
  • Publish directly to Amazon, the world’s biggest online bookstore
  • Publish your book on other online retailers
  • Easily track your sales and royalties
  • Market and promote your books and sell more books

Note: Laptops and tablets would be handy but not required for the workshop
