Recent changes in the publishing industry have made self-publishing a viable way to publish a book and build a writing career. In this presentation, Ariele Sieling, author of fourteen self-published books, takes a closer look at strategies for creating a book that is both a quality product and affordable for the writer. She takes a step-by-step approach, starting with a completed manuscript, and ending with a printed book you can hold in your hands. She discusses the pros and cons of self-publishing, the right and wrong reasons for choosing to self-publish, tips for preparing a book for publication, and how to avoid common pitfalls--all interspersed with tales of her own.
This presentation is designed for beginner, intermediate, and advanced writers who are interested in pursuing publishing as an avenue for sharing their work
