Event description

Description

Gone are the days when the gatekeepers of traditional publishing held the keys to the literary kingdom. Thanks to thriving self-publishing platforms like CreateSpace, Kindle Direct Publishing, Smashwords, and Draft2Digital, the barrier to entry for publishing your own book is negligible. But just because you can doesn’t necessarily mean you should. Yet, with so much wildly varying information available online, how can today’s author know whether self-publishing or traditional publishing is their best path forward? By asking themselves five simple yet challenging questions, which will all be covered in depth. This interactive seminar will also offer answers to:

  • What are the major differences between self-publishing and traditional publishing?
  • What are the benefits and drawbacks of each process?
  • How much does it cost to self-publish vs. traditionally publish?
  • How long does each process require?
  • How much could I earn through either process?
  • Should my decision depend on my genre?
  • Why is a platform essential for both processes?
  • Does a self-publisher have to do all of their work alone?
  • What’s it like to work with a traditional publisher?

Instructor Blake Atwood is an author, editor, and ghostwriter who has been traditionally published as a co-writer and has self-published three books, including an audio book and Spanish editions of his first book. He also works with editing clients pursuing both paths. He is the host of the podcast, All Apprentices: Quick Editing Tips.
