The ABCs of Publishing- Part 2: Getting Your Story Published

ABCs of Publishing - Part 2

Writing a book is only the first part of sharing your story. Now it is time to bring it to life by getting it published.

During this webinar, we’ll discuss the three ways writers go about getting their books published:


Traditional  Publishing
– A publisher buys the rights to an author’s manuscript and the author gets an advancement and assumes no financial risk.


Self-Publishing
– The writer publishes his or her book without engaging an established publisher and assumes all financial responsibility and also keeps 100% of sales.


Hybrid Publishing
– The author pays the publisher fees for services and in return is paid higher royalties.

We’ll also discuss literary agents and their roles as well as when to consider getting one and the process.  Ready to present to a publisher?  We’ll provide some tips on what they are looking for and even more important what to look for when negotiating and signing a contract.


This workshop is perfect for beginning writers as well as writers who are seasoned.  Those who have an interest in just learning about the process but not ready to write a book are encouraged to attend.


This event is in partnership with 220 Publishing.

After your book is written, the fun part of getting the word out starts.  A strong marketing plan starts while the book is in the process of being printed.

We’ll discuss tactics to generate pre interest, how to maximize your “warm market,” and activities you do on the day of your release as well as days and months to follow.
