10:30 am to 1:00 p.m.
The self-publishing model has changed a great deal over the last three years, creating a wonderful open door for writers to see their name on a published book. Unfortunately, most aspiring authors make detrimental mistakes in bringing their books to fruition and publishing them, ultimately diminishing—rather than solidifying—their credibility. Stacey Aaronson will not only share the missteps most people make when embarking on self-publishing so that you can avoid them, but she will impart the essentials you must know to become a self-published author with excellence and marketability, such as:
- Why DIY and self-publishing are NOT one and the same
- How to put yourself on the right marketing track from the start
- Why you must think like a publisher, not a writer
- Why professional editing and design are such a vital part of the self-publishing process and what questions you should ask providers
- What kind of budget you should expect to invest in your “baby”
- What an author platform is and how and when to start building it
- Which self-publishing platforms she recommends and why (and which ones to avoid!)
- and much more!
If you want to craft, produce, and market a book that will be a shining reflection of you as an author—putting you a step above the rest—this is the seminar for you!
