Write Directions Institute: Self-publishing 101
Self-publishing isn't for every writer, but it has incredible advantages. You don't have to get an agent or publisher’s approval, give up editorial and design control, or settle for miniscule royalties (if any). Rather, you are the one who determines your book’s content and look. You oversee its scheduling and production. And you create the winning marketing strategy that will connect you with loyal readers, whomever and wherever they may be. In sum: You determine your book’s fate—this session will show you how.
In this 90-minute class, you will learn how to:
- Distinguish between the traditional (agent/publisher) and self-publishing models.
- Walk step-by-step through the self-publishing cycle, from idea to print and beyond.
- Recruit a self-publishing team, including book coach, designer, proofreader and printer.
- Create a budget for publishing and marketing your book.
- Identify possible roadblocks
