Publishing Options for Writers

Learn to navigate the publishing landscape and arm yourself with the information you need to make smart decisions that meet your publishing goals.  End the session with an actionable plan to publish. It can be bewildering, learning the difference between traditional, assisted, partnership, self, hybrid and independent publishing. Not knowing the difference can needlessly cost you money. I help writers shift from confusion about their publishing options to confidence and clarity.  As a writer who wants to publish your book, you shouldn’t have to suffer doubt in not knowing your options. Worry that you may be scammed by vanity presses.  You should have access to the information you need to choose the right path for you and your book. This workshop will show you:

  • How a traditional publisher works, exactly what a hybrid publisher is and how it differs from a printing company, and indie publishing works.
  • How money flows in book publishing and what you shouldn’t, should and could pay to have your book produced.
  • The paths you and your book could take and the decisions you will need to make at crucial junctures, so that you create a plan that works for you.

Who should take this course?

  • Any writer who is contemplating publishing for the first time and wants to know enough about the industry to decide how to go about it in an informed way.
  • Any writer who is contemplating contracting with a publisher, traditional or hybrid, and wants to know what questions they should ask before signing the contract – and why.
  • Any writer who is curious to know more about the indie publishing world.

Who should NOT take this class?

  • Writers who have secured a contract with an agent or publisher and have no interest in exploring other options.
  • Writers who already publish on Amazon KDP or similar platform and do not feel the need to learn more about traditional or hybrid publishing

How do I know if it’s worth my time attending this workshop?

  • This is an important question, and it’s a tough one to answer. Every writer is different and a valuable webinar for one person can end up being a disappointment to another. 
  • If you have only a rudimentary understanding of the publishing industry in all its different forms, or if you know so little about it you are not clear on what your publishing goals could be, then it will be worth your time attending. 
  • As the workshop is designed to be hands on and participative, you will get the most value out of it by attending in real time.
