BOOK & PAPER ART

INTRODUCTION TO SELF PUBLISHING

 

CJ Shane (one session)
This introductory workshop in self-publishing will assist participants to consider and set self-publishing goals; review major POD (print-on-demand) companies; discuss interior text formatting options; consider proofreading/copyediting; discuss cover graphic design and formatting options; consider related topics such as ISBNs, copyright issues, print requirements (CMYK vs. RGB), e-book text conversions and file options; book reviews (including ARCs); and a beginning look at book marketing.

 

Think about the following questions before coming to the workshop:  1) what kind of book do I want to publish (e-book, hard cover, paperback, all three)?; 2) do I want to try to sell my book to the public or am I writing primarily for friends and family? 3) How much do I want to spend to create my book?
