The most commonly asked questions and most frequently requested class is about self publishing. Whether it’s P.O.D. (Print On Demand) or ebooks, writers new and experienced want to know more. Is it better than traditional publishing or worse? Can the two forms exist side-by-side? How much money does it cost? Should you pay for copy editing, covers, etc? Can anyone do it?
We invite you to come to our free class this Saturday and listen to self published authors run you through the basics of this new and exciting facet of writing. Details below —
Saturday, March 19, 2016
Led by AWA founder Katherine Cerulean, this talk will feature self published local authors discussing all aspects of turning your work into ebooks and POD paperbacks, social media and your writing platform, self promotion, the value (and pitfalls) of independent editors, cover artists, and ‘publishing houses’. Less a step by step than a chance to hear from the authors who have been down this path before you and can tell you what tell they wish THEY’D known before they started.
Before you leap into the confusing (but rewarding) world of self publishing, and especially before you spend $1,000s of dollars unnecessarily, learn from our experiences.
Bring your questions and your excitement — it’s a great time to be a writer! Free, with handouts.
We will be in Multipurpose Room A.
