Self-Publishing: Is it for you?

You’ve written your book, either fiction or nonfiction, and you want people to see it. Is it better to depend on the ever-shrinking print publishing industry, or should you strike out on your own? And if you do decide on publishing it yourself, what next? Most writers just want to write. That’s it — and in the old days, it was enough. But if you self-publish, you now are responsible for your own editing, book and cover design, and marketing. What does it take? And do you want to do it?

Geri Jeter will walk you through your new responsibilities as a writer/publisher. Come on… It will be fun…
