Ready to take publishing into your own hands, but overwhelmed by all of the options and decisions involved?This class will walk you through the nitty-gritty decisions of the self-publishing process (without trying to sell you on any particular service or path).One size does not fit all when it comes to self publishing.  

We’ll talk about:

  • Format decisions: should you have an e-book? A print book? Both?
  • Book formatting: tips and tricks for creating a clean, professional looking e-book and print design
  • The legalities: ISBNs, copyright registration, and more.
  • Cover design: Don’t try this at home. (Or if you’re a DIY artist, follow these guidelines.)
  • Cover Copy: The most important 200 words you’ll write as a self-publishing author

We’ll also talk about when and how to hire freelancers, what research says about the best pricing strategies, and how to avoid the scams and pitfalls that trap self-publishing authors along the way. 

Bring material to take notes (laptop, tablet, or notebook/pen).

Note: In 2017, this popular class sold out and had a waitlist.
