Self publishing is not only easier than ever before, it is becoming one of the best ways for authors to get their books into their readers’ hands. Self-published books rank at the top of best-sellers lists and are sometimes republished by larger, traditional publishers.
Sponsored by Orca Books, Pam McKinnie, CEO of Concepts Unlimited, will talk about book publishing options and help you learn how to publish your book. She has helped more than 40 authors successfully design and promote their books. Whether you are a published author or are just considering writing your first book, join us at this free, informal workshop to discover the “ins and outs” of self publishing. Find out about book design, lay out, publishing options, and promotion. Discover the differences between traditional printing, print on demand, eBooks, and publishing for Kindle. Learn what resources you need and find a publishing solution that fits your budget.
This is a FREE event at Orca Books, 509 4th Ave E. in downtown Olympia.
