I’m teaching an online class about Indie Publishing through The Loft, a writing center in the Twin Cities! The class is all ONLINE thank goodness, and runs for six weeks from March 4 to April 15.
This class will introduce you the zany world of self-publishing, where YOU make all the choices. You make your deadlines, your publishing schedule, your creative direction, as well as marketing and book design decisions. We’ll talk about publishing options in the indie world, how to put your books out as ebooks and paperbacks, ways to build a newsletter and an audience, how to keep self-publishing costs down while doing quality work, best practices for success, and much more.
This will be a six-week course and I’m putting everything but the kitchen sink in here: Self-publishing vs. Traditional publishing; Amazon vs. going wide; how to build a following; ways to use social media more effectively; advertising; tips and tricks — There’s going to be a lot.
Sign up here! I’m putting together the course right now, and I’m still adding information and tightening the focus of the classes. It will be a fun time, and we’ll all learn a lot. I always expect a lot of my students, and the more you work, the more you’ll learn (as with any class).
