Students who take their Indie Publishing classes say:

"If you are considering self-publishing your book, I suggest you step back from the computer until after you have taken F.I. Goldhaber's class on the subject. An enthusiastic teacher, they will guide you through the entire process including cover design, book layout, copyrights, ISBNs, marketing and more while letting you know who's who and what's what in today's fluid online publishing world." -- Meg Kenagy

"Thanks so much for putting on this class. I am sifting through my notes today and am amazed at how much information and advice you gave us over just a few too-short sessions. Well worth the price of admission!" -- Jeff Dabbs

"I have seen hundreds of presentations and your presentation was very professional and informative. I've been wanting to learn how to publish an eBook for over a year and you taught me in less than 2 hours. Thank you. -- Jerry Cronin
