Self-Publishing with Diane Phelps Budden

Ready to self-publish? It’s a challenging job, but this workshop will guide you through it. First tip? You’ll need to profile the target audience for your book. That information will drive everything about getting your book into the hands of potential buyers. Then we’ll discuss the steps to self-publishing a print book, and establishing distributors. We’ll consider both brick-and-mortar options and print on demand (POD). You’ll need an effective query letter or book proposal to contact these folks. Next, we’ll talk about producing an e-book.
