WordPress is outstanding for authors because 1) it’s free; 2) it has thousands of great plugins (free); and thousands of beautiful themes (free). I wrote my book, WordPress Websites, because so many people kept asking me how to do things like add images to a sidebar or change a header, that I decided to round up all those questions and put it in my book.
The book is just as valuable today as when I wrote and revised it (2014), and in fact it’s been translated into Spanish.

Udemy Course Discount
Recently, I had the pleasure of taking a Udemy course from Dennis J. Smith called Kindle: Maximum eBook Profits With WordPress Marketing. It’s an excellent course on book marketing, and how authors can sell more books by utilizing their WordPress websites. Dennis’ course sells for $499 but because he knows I help so many writers who are just getting started – and who don’t have that kind of cash on hand – he gave me a code for readers of this blog to get the course for seven bucks. Yes. $7.
