In my early twenties, I purchased a course in writing from the "Famous Writers School". I could ill afford it at the time, but my wife supported my decision and we paid the money and I received the materials.

In order to set up books for pre-order, you need a cover, you need a synopsis, and you need to be writing a novel and it will be available on the release date. In this case, it is July…
