Creators Workshop "Independent Publishing"

Location/County: Charleston, Kanawha
January 23, 2018

The publishing world has changed dramatically over the last few years. Independent publishing is now a business decision instead of a last-ditch option. Eric Douglas is a hybrid author, with books published by publishers and an independent publisher. His talk will cover the pitfalls and pluses of being an indie and he will also talk about what to do when your book is “out there”. He will discuss marketing your books, staying “exclusive” or “going wide” and lessons he’s learned.

Writers – you don’t need to have a finished manuscript, you don’t even have to have started it, to be thinking about independent publishing. Any writer who has dreamed of publishing will find something interesting in this presentation.
