Event Overview

Welcome to High-Quality Self-Publishing on a Budget! Are you writing a book or thinking about writing a book? Have you been perusing the internet, gathering information about LCCNs, copyrights, ISBNs, and book printers? It's a lot to take in. I know. I've been researching and researching and researching this stuff for hundreds of hours, and I've put together a self-publishing training to go along with a step-by-step guide that will help you hit every major milestone, in the correct order (which is kind of important). This training will provide a lot of information along with a copy of Piecing It Together: Your Self-Publishing Guide. You will also get supplemental information about what options are available to you as an independent author. So get ready and get that book into the world!

I believe self-publishing should be accessible, and because of this, I will teach you how to maintain control over every aspect of the self-publishing process. There’s no need to pay absurd rates to get a high-quality book out into the world. I will always recommend paying for editing and design, but the rest can be up to you. During my prior life, I obtained a bachelor’s degree in social work and a master’s degree in public administration. I worked as a social worker, a healthcare policy egghead, an advocate for paralyzed veterans, a nursing assistant, and many other things to keep my family’s favorite rosemary sourdough bread on the table. I’ve had a passion for writing and creating since I wrote my first story in the second grade and have parlayed that passion into teaching others to do the same.
