    Are you writing a book and wonder if self-publishing is right for you?

    Are you concerned that the process will be too technical or expensive?

    In How to Self-Publish a Book, Barb Drozdowich cuts through the techno-speak and clearly explains self-publishing in an easy-to-understand manner.
    In this workshop we cover:

    - What is the publishing marketplace in 2018? Where are authors currently selling books? 
    - What is the structure of a book and do you need to know this?
    - How to get a manuscript ready
    - What do you need to know about file formats
    - What is formatting?
    - What is needed in a cover graphic?
    - Where do you sell your book?
    - What are distributors and aggregators?
    - How to set up accounts and make your book available for readers to buy.
    - What questions should be asked of a self-publishing service

    Ticket price includes coffee/tea. Bring a brown paper lunch and use our break time to network

    Bring a pen/pencil and paper to take notes.
    Barb will have some of her books available for purchase.
