Udemy Discounts - Novel Experience

Just a quick  note for those writers out there who’d like to learn a little more about the craft of writing or the business side of self-publishing.   Udemy are currently offering many of their courses for just $19 – the courses are great and well worth checking out.  For Novel Experience readers just add the code ‘FUTURE1199′ at checkout – the course will be charged at $19 which, on most of the courses, represents a whopping discount.  But make certain that you purchase the course before the offer expires on 29th April 2015 at 11.59 PST.
