  1. I’m so glad I took Susan’s class. Learning from her was like having an agent in my back pocket. She was gracious to answer my many questions and to offer creative solutions for the specific challenges of my book. Susan brought me from clueless to confident. She helped me step into today’s publishing industry.

  2. Thanks for the information you have shared with us. You have given me much food for thought. I’m looking forward to putting this course to good use over the next year and more.

  3. Susan Stewart single-handedly saved my editing business. More and more of my clients wanted me to carry them straight through the editing process into ebook production, and all the various sites seemed to offer so much free advice and so many free templates … all of which turned out to be conflicting, hard to follow, obsolete, poorly crafted (both byzantine and ugly), or simply wrong. Formatting began to take more of my time than editing and coaching, and it was by far the most frustrating challenge I faced.

    Until I enrolled in Susan’s PEN course on the topic! From the very first, she began to solve my problems for me. I used my work-in-progress to complete my course assignments, and during her brief class I believe I successfully completed two of my clients’ ebooks!

    There are many excellent PEN courses, but none of them combined the serendipitous timing and sudden leap of proficiency like this one did for me. I still refer to those class notes more than a year afterward, although now that Susan has an updated version of her book on the topic I’m using that instead, to keep abreast of recent changes in the Kindle standard.

    Susan always gives you the latest stuff in every course she teaches—if the Smashwords Meatgrinder keeps choking on your ebook, or your illustrations won’t render properly in Kindle, or if text wrap has you weeping in a corner, you need to take this course.
