Guided Self-Publishing

Guided Self-Publishing for Women Authors

Publish Her’s Guided Self-Publishing offers hands-on publishing support for do-it-yourselfers.

Get valuable insights for self-publishing your book, from ensuring it’s ready to publish and marketable to navigating ever-changing publishing platforms to publishing and promoting your finished product. Virtual sessions are led by publishing expert Chris Olsen, and you select dates and times that work best with your schedule.

First, aspiring self-published authors learn about the publishing industry, evaluate publishing goals, and get guidance and resources for setting up your book for success, including essential information on editing, design and marketing.

In the next session, you learn what various self-publishing platforms offer, see how the platforms function, and watch the self-publishing process in action for both print and e-books.

For authors who want more support self-publishing a book from start to finish, Guided Self-Publishing Coaching provides four additional one-on-one sessions, plus unlimited email access to a publishing expert for four weeks.

Publish Her is committed to equity in publishing and offers grants for Guided Self-Publishing for women of color, women with disabilities and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Learn more.
