A Conversation About Self-Publishing
- Have you ever thought about collecting some of your Wild Writing from the last year or two and self-publishing a book?
- Have you wondered about the process of selecting, polishing pieces and bringing them together in a beautiful collection that you can be proud of and share with friends?
- Does the thought of something you can hold with your name on it make you light up?
- Have you been curious about the publishing process – the various self-publishing routes, the costs, the design and distribution?
If any of these questions have crossed your mind, join us to talk about these very things with a panel of some of your Wild Friends, folks like you who have been Wild Writing with us, and who have self-published their Wild Writing work in the last year.
During our hour and a half we talk with these Wild Sisters about how these books came about. We talk about how they selected and edited their work, as well as the various publishing routes they chose. We learn a little bit about ebooks, Blurb, independent publishing and even what it means to partner with Amazon. And we talk about marketing and yes, we talk about the inner critic, that rascally voice that keeps so many of us from sharing our work.
