This one-day course will answer your high-level questions about self-publishing and help you to determine whether it’s for you. You will leave with a clear idea of what things you need to do and how to go about doing them.
You will cover the advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing, how to describe what you have written, explore book covers, the different types of editing and why you might need them, how to find readers, preparing your manuscript for publication and much more.
The course assumes that you have a finished piece of work, or a work in progress.
About the Tutor:
Heide Goody and Iain Grant first met at Birmingham Writers’ Group and started co-writing in 2012. Since then they have self-published more than ten comic fantasy novels. Their books feature regularly in the top twenty of the Amazon satire charts. When they write together Heide brings farcical stupidity and Iain brings geeky cleverness and then they blend it together, almost never arguing about who is Lennon and who is McCartney.
