Self-Publishing Workshop at #DeBaryHall

DeBary Hall Historic Site, 198 Sunrise Blvd, DeBary, FL

Two weeks from today, I’ll be giving a self-publishing workshop for beginners. I stress the “beginner” category, because I am not an expert in self-publishing, by any means. All I know is what worked for me. But at every Meet the Author talk I give, I’m asked detailed questions on how to go about publishing a book on Kindle and through Createspace, so it seemed like a good idea to set up an event where we can focus on the process.  I’ve published four novels and a book of poetry, so I do have a lot of tips to share, and plenty of suggestions for what authors should NOT do.  😀

If you are a new writer, or at least new to self-publishing, and you are in the area, please consider joining us for a three-hour discussion, with handouts,  at DeBary Hall, from 1:00 to 4:00, on Saturday, April 23. Reservations are required, so call Kayce Looper  at (386)668-3840 to reserve a seat. Hope to see you there!

    • WHAT? You don’t want to hop a transatlantic flight, just to meet me, and chat about self-publilshing??? I’m astounded! 😀

      Thanks for the good luck wishes. This could be a lot of fun, but we do have a minimum attendance number, so whether or not it’s a go depends on how many sign up in the next two weeks. If the numbers aren’t good, we’ll reschedule for fall, possibly. It IS an experiment, and a departure from what I usually do, so we’ll have to see how much interest there is.

  1. Do you ever have anyone there willing to film or transcribe the questions/answers? As much as I’d love to come to this, there’s no way I’d be able to make it. That’s a long drive to make and I’m not financially capable of doing it. Still, I’d love to hear what you have to say about the matter. 😉

    • Thanks for your interest, Skye. Sorry it’s not doable for you, but honestly, this will be a trial run sort of thing. Once I’ve done it once or twice, I’ll know how to tweak it until it works really well. Maybe by the time that happens, either you can make a trip, or I can find someone to video it. If so, I’ll happily share with you.

      In the meantime, I’m just focusing on seeing if all those folks who raised their hands, saying they’d love something like this, will actually show up. 😀 But since I have events scheduled three Saturdays in a row, if this one doesn’t generate enough interest, we’ll put it on a back burner and try again later.

      I’ll keep you posted on how it goes, and what the future holds. 🙂
