RWF - Between “The End” and the Upload

Congratulations! You’ve just typed “The End.” Your story is done! You’ve heard all about the success and the struggle of self-publishing.  Have you already decided to self-pub or do you want to know more before you take the plunge?  Wherever you’re at, you have questions. Where do I go from here? How do I get my book on the shelves, electronic or bricks & mortar? Where should I load my files? What kind of files do I need? What needs to be done before I announce my release date? In this workshop, we’ll answer the endless questions between typing “The End” and pushing the Publish button on a vendor’s website.  Topics include: ·      Polish: Find the right editor for you. Learn four copyediting methods that you can do on your computer. ·      Prepare: Cover designers, formatters, narrators, there’s lots of ways to spend your money. Why, who, when, how much to pay? Where do you find them? ·      Protect: Do you need to register a copyright? What are ISBNs? Who owns what piece of your book? Is piracy preventable? ·      Price: Pick a number, any number? Ebook and print book pricing models are explained. ·      Print: Trimming, binding, bleeding… the jargon explained. ·      Publish: How many ways can you sell a book? Go wide or exclusive? To print or not to print? EXCLUSIVE EXTRA: Four weekly interactive Zoom sessions to enhance the presented materials with live examples, discuss the course assignments, and Q&A.
