 Workshop Description

Congratulations! You’ve completed your story! You’ve decided to take control and self-publish. Rock on!

Where you go from here? How do you get your book on the shelves, electronic or bricks & mortar? What do you need to know before you announce your release date?

In this workshop, we’ll walk over the stepping stones between typing “The End” and clicking the upload button on a vendor’s or distributor’s website.

Topics include:

  • Polish: Types of edits, DIY tools, finding an editor.
  • Prepare: Between cover designers, formatters, narrators, there are lots of ways to spend your money before you’ve made a penny of royalties. How much is too much?
  • Protect: Copyrights, ISBNs, piracy.
  • Print: Trimming, binding, bleeding… what horrors await you behind those portals?
  • Price: Competition is fierce, pricing is tough. Crunch the numbers.
  • Distribute: The many ways can you sell a book; direct, bookstores, libraries. Go wide or exclusive. To print or not to print.
