Led by Abby L. Vandiver, also writing as Abby Collette, a hybrid author who has penned more than twenty-five books and short stories. She has hit the Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller lists. The first book in her latest cozy series, A Deadly Inside Scoop, published by Penguin Berkley, is out now, with the second book, A Game of Cones, coming in March 2021.
The ultimate goal of this class is to publish your book after the fourth and final class, where step by step instructions will be given.
Perhaps you’ve heard that self-publishing can be a treacherous road to travel, uncertain and costly. This class will show you that it doesn’t have to be. It can be simple, easy and inexpensive. Almost free!
The key to success in writing lies between giving readers what they want and being true to yourself in the stories you write. But with the gatekeepers of traditional publishers dictating the books that get published every year, that can be hard for authors.
Self-publishing is a great way to sidestep literary gatekeepers and take ownership over the production of your own writing. Not an easy task, every step of self-publishing has its own challenge—from copyediting to layout and design, from printing to marketing and selling.
This class will provide key tips for producing your book, maximizing exposure, and building a fan base. We’ll cover outside and interior design, marketing, building a writing community and the value of online retailers. You'll learn what “self” publishing really means and how it can be done cheaply, effectively, and with the same high standards readers have come to expect.
This class is interactive. Come prepared to take part in class discussions with questions or concerns as you prepare book for publication. Abby will share actionable and effective tips on how to successfully set up your document, where to find help along with best practices.
Week #1: Define Your Success – Discuss what you want to get from self-publishing and why choose that path.
Week #2: Judging a Book by Its Cover – Your book, inside and out, has to look good. Learn how to do that.
Week #3: 10% Writing. 90% Marketing – Promoting your book, after completing it, will be your primary job. We'll learn about marketing your self-published book.
Week #4; Let’s Get Published – Publish your book!
