Osmosio is the place to learn about digital publishing.

Want to write an ebook? Have a blog? If you said yes to either of those, Osmosio is for you. Osmosio is an online learning portal that consists of a series of modules or courses related to various aspects of digital publishing (blogging, ebook creation, etc.). There are currently 4 modules (see below). More modules will be added on a regular basis. Join Osmosio now and you’ll gain access to all current and future modules.

Word to Kindle (for Word and Mac)

Word to Kindle

This is the flagship module of Osmosio. It’s really good, if I do say so myself. It walks you through how to properly format a Kindle book in Microsoft Word (for both Macs and Windows machines). It includes dozens of video screencasts that take all of the guesswork and frustration out of the process. I would have killed to have something like this when I was first starting out in the world of Kindle ebook publishing.

Kindle Publishing Essentials

Kindle Publishing Essentials

You’ve written your book. You’ve formatted it. Uh… Now what? How do you publish the thing on Amazon? First, you turn to the Kindle Publishing Essentials module on Osmosio. It walks you through the process of publishing your book through Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform and discusses every section you’ll go through and every form you’ll need to fill out. Be sure to check out the pages about ebook pricing, choosing categories, and figuring out what keywords to use.


Nonfiction eBook Ideas

Nonfiction eBook Ideas

Want to write a book but you aren’t sure what to write about? This module is for you. It’s a collection of more than 50 nonfiction ebook ideas that can apply to most topics that are out there. Are you into dirtbikes? Read through the list of ideas and I’m sure you can come up with a dirtbike-related ebook idea. Perhaps gardening is more your style? No problem there, either.

These ideas are sorted onto six pages, with 10 ideas on each page and a handful on the sixth (to which I will add more ideas as they come to me). Each idea includes a few sentences of explanation, a bulleted list of questions you can ask yourself to get the creative juices flowing, and links to real book examples of that idea in practice over on Amazon.


365 Blog Post Ideas

365 Blog Post Ideas

I first started blogging in 2003. I was in my teens at the time, and my blog posts were the angst-ridden drivel you’d expect from an average teenage blogger. But since that time, I’ve published many hundreds of blog posts—probably even more than a thousand—on dozens of blogs. Years ago, I started keeping a list of things to blog about. That list got bigger and bigger, and it has now morphed into this massive list of 365 ideas. Yep, that’s one for each day of the year. Each idea includes a brief description and links to examples of relevant published blog posts on other websites. Roughly every eighth idea is actually an idea source; that is, it’s a place you can go to or something you can do to get even more ideas.

This module consists of the 365 ideas split up between eight pages. Don’t want to sit down and read through 365 ideas? No problem. There’s an email delivery option. Enter in your email address and you’ll get one blog post idea emailed to you every day for a year.


Responsive and mobile-ready

Responsive and mobile-ready

The Osmosio website is responsive, so it will change the way it looks to fit on screens of different sizes. Go ahead. Give it a try. Resize this page in your browser. You can consume the Osmosio modules on a mobile smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer. This means that on those long, cold, lonely nights when you’re tossing and turning and failing to sleep, you can whip out your phone and turn to Osmosio for comfort. Osmosio—We’re Always Here for You ®*.

*Not an actual registered trademark. Also, it’s not technically true, as I don’t spend 24/7 on my computer (though it definitely feels that way sometimes).

Also, Osmosio is not yet optimized for large “retina”-type screens. If you have a large HD display (a 15-inch MacBook Pro, for example), some of the images on the site may look slightly fuzzy.

The Future of Osmosio

The future of Osmosio

“What are these ‘future modules’ you spoke of earlier?” Excellent question! Future modules will cover a range of digital publishing-related topics, including (but not limited to):

  • Infographic creation
  • eBook marketing
  • eBook writing
  • Book cover creation
  • WordPress tutorials
  • Website promotion
  •  …and anything else you request of me that I can do!

And the best part? Osmosio members will be able to access all future modules at no extra charge. You pay once to join Osmosio. Once you’re in, you’re in, baby.

About moi

About me

Osmosio is not some omniscient, all-powerful, mega-corporation (though it is reserves the right to one day become so or be acquired by a similar corporation in the future). It’s run by one dude. My name is Tristan. I’m an American in my late 20s. I earn my living from the websites I’ve created and the books I’ve written. I’ve been blogging since 2003 and I’ve written and published dozens of ebooks. I live and breathe digital publishing. I love it. Since all of my work is computer- and internet-based, I can live anywhere in the world. I’ve made the most of that by spending the last two years (and counting) living and traveling around the world, from Mexico to Germany to Armenia to Nepal to Cambodia.

The fact that anyone can take ideas, a story, or a body of knowledge and turn it into something that can be read and spread around the world is incredibly powerful, and I take that seriously. My goal with Osmosio is to provide you with the best possible information about how to write, package, and distribute your own ideas.

So how much does it cost?

It costs $67. That’s a one-time fee, not a recurring monthly or yearly fee. Once you become a member by paying that $67, you’ll get access to all of Osmosio’s current content as well as all future modules (as mentioned above). I have wasted so much time and money (and gotten so frustrated!) over the years, and joining Osmosio and learning from what I’ve learned will help keep you from wasting your own time and money (not to mention definitely minimize your frustration). Believe me, the $67 is worth it, and the price will likely go up in the future.

Join Osmosio. It's worth it, honest.

Not convinced? Not sure Osmosio is for you?

Don’t worry. It comes with a 30-day money back guarantee. I would say that it’s a “no questions asked” guarantee, but that’s not quite accurate. If you request a refund within that 30 days, I’ll give it to you, but I’ll ask you questions about why Osmosio wasn’t a good fit for you so that I can better serve my customers in the future. Deal?

Have a question? Need help?

I’m easy to get in touch with, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. That’s usually within a day, but it can vary. My internet may be out or reeeeeaaaaally slow (such is the reality of traveling and living overseas), or I may briefly be somewhere without an internet connection at all. Rest assured that I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
