Publish Her’s Guided Self-Publishing virtual workshops provide 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.
In the first session, aspiring self-published authors like you 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 second 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. You must complete Guided Self-Publishing Part One before attending Guided Self-Publishing Part Two.
Guided Self-Publishing Part One includes:
- One 90-minute session via Zoom, on Thursday, Jan. 13, 2023, from 10-11:30 a.m. Central Standard Time
- Guided Self-Publishing Part One downloadable workbook
