Write and Make Money Now!

Electronic books are revolutionizing the publishing world. What started as a small group of writers making money with download books on the internet, has now turned into a million dollar phenomenon, especially with the release of the Amazon Kindle Ebook Reader.

Whether you provide products or services, add e-books to your offerings. Write them once and sell them multiple times to create a passive stream of income. They also build your voice and position you as an expert in your industry.

Come join bestselling eBook and traditionally published author Julie A. Fast and learn how you can tap into this new publishing opportunity. This class will cover the ins and outs of eBook publishing as well as recording books as mp3 files and publishing on the Iphone.

Julie A. Fast is one of the top mental health writers in the world with over 1,000,000 books sold and counting! Julie is an author, speaker, radio host and publishing consultant. Her books include Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder, Take Charge of Bipolar Disorder, Get it Done When You're Depressed and The Official Geezer Guide to Creating and Selling Ebooks. Julie was a pioneer in the eBook industry and watches with fascination as the publishing world changes from print to electronic products. She believes that writers will soon record books directly to audio media and ultimately focus on electronic self publishing with self hired PR agents instead of only working with large publishing companies.

Julie teaches classes on Electronic Media and works with authors who want to write eArticles and bestselling books. You can read more about her work at

RefreshPDX: So You Want to Write a Book


Got a lot to say about a topic? Writing a book can be a highly rewarding challenge. It’s not as hard as you might think, and it helps your knowledge reach many new kinds of people.

Everything you wanted to know about what it takes to write a book for a technical audience. Pro’s and con’s of self-publishing vs working with a publisher, what to write about, the process of writing, how to market, and more.

This talk draws from lessons I learned from writing Hello Web App, my Kickstarted book covering Django web app development for beginners.
