Publishing independently is a rewarding, empowering, and immediate way to get your book into the hands of your readers. In this workshop, Carla King—book coach, author of six books on self-publishing, and three other self-published books—will show you how easy it is to put systems in place. Along with the printed guide, you’ll get checklists and worksheets to help you walk away with an actionable publishing plan for your book.
You’ll learn why many of today’s successful authors are committed self-publishers, others choose hybrid deals (working with small presses or distribution companies), and still others use self-publishing as a launching pad to attract an agent and a big publishing house. But what it takes to be successful—even before editing and design—is to involve early readers so you know you’re writing to an audience that actually exists. This process jumps starts your book marketing and makes book launch and media outreach activities a lot easier and much more fun.
