Going indie isn’t new – everyone from Charles Dickens to Matthew Reilly has done it. Find your way through the self-publishing maze in this workshop that explains the key steps before you hit ‘Publish’ – and some of the traps and pitfalls to avoid. As Beth Revis said, ‘Welcome to the world of publishing. BYOB.’

You will learn:

  • How to develop a release plan and prep your work for publication.
  • Essential steps: ISBNs, covers, hiring outsourced help, platforms, ebook and print. 
  • How to act like a publisher: money, marketing, distribution and more.
  • Pitfall avoidance: what to watch out for when self-publishing.
  • How to steer your course as an indie or hybrid author.
