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.
Bye for now….
