Curious about self-publishing, but not sure where to begin? Join us for our North Texas SCBWI May meeting and as we learn the tips and tricks of the self-publishing trade with award-winning self-published author (and fellow North Texas chapter member) Jane Alvey Harris.
Jane will be presenting "A Year in the Life of a Self-Published Author," a first-hand account of her self-publishing journey. The presentation includes invaluable resources for authors seeking to self-publish; from outlining the steps to check off your list before publishing (generating buzz, editorial reviews and author blurbs, platform, interior and cover design, & etc.), to the steps to take to promote your book post-publishing (PR, awards contests, giveaways, trailers, signings and appearances, and more). Learn proven strategies and tips for success as well as the pitfalls to avoid as she delves into the complex ins-and-outs of self-publishing. This presentation will help authors set realistic expectations about the process so they can answer the question: “Is Self-Publishing the right option for me?”
