Maine Authors Publishing staff will be offering one-night adult education courses and library workshops for 2015-2016.

SECRETS OF SUCCESSFUL INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING

Are you ready to independently publish your book? The new advances in printing technology have created a boom in independent publishing. Many first time authors as well as previously published authors are choosing to self-publish. Now is the best time to finish your manuscript and learn about the publishing options available. This class will guide authors through the steps needed to publish responsibly, effectively and learn to avoid the many pitfalls in the fast-changing world of independent publishing. You will find out about self-publishing, the importance of editing, eBooks, marketing plans, and the technical assistance you need to get your book in print. Instructor: Jane Karker
