Have you ever wanted to publish your own book? The publishing world has changed, and now it’s easier than ever for independent authors to self-publish. But how do you get started? How do you find a cover artist or an editor? How do get your title up on Amazon? And how do you get the word out about your book, so that you can earn dollars to gain more writing time? In this workshop, Pushcart Prize nominee and 2017 Independent Press Award winner DL Young will support you in answering these and other questions to ensure you a strong launch on your self-publishing journey.

The topics we’ll cover include:

- Writing tools (Word, Scrivener, etc.)
- Why cover art is so important and how to find a good cover artist
- Working with editors and proofreaders (and how to find them)
- Pros and cons of selling "Amazon exclusive" vs. "going wide"
- eBook and print book formatting and production
- ISBNs and copyrights
- The do-it-yourself approach vs. hiring experts
- How to find readers
- How to find reviewers
- Marketing and advertising basics (Facebook ads, Amazon ads, Goodreads Giveaways, mailing list providers, events, etc.)
- Pricing
