It's been six years since the self-pub revolution went mainstream. Strategies to get your book in front of readers have changed tremendously. Whether you have several books out, or are still finishing up a manuscript you intend to publish on your own, this class will take your career as an author to the next stage in its self-pub journey. In this four-hour class, we will:

  • Review the self-publishing platforms for ebook and print and their current market share
  • Discuss the best price points for each genre and type of book
  • Build a release strategy that gives your book the best possible start
  • Establish a "rescue plan" for current titles that have not yet found their audience

About the instructor: 

Deanna Roy is the six-time USA Today bestselling author of women's fiction, college romance, and middle grade books under three pen names. She is a regular speaker and instructor for authors who choose the self-publishing route for their books.
