Workshop: Is 2013 the Year of YOUR Book?

Graphic promoting the upcoming seminar "Is 2013 the year of YOUR book"

I field nearly 100 inquiries a year about writing a book. People want to know predictable things, like whether they’re ready, how much it costs to self publish, how to market the book and how to get started.

I can speak from my experience, but here’s your chance to hear from a panel of experts on the subject, including Fabi Preslar, whose firm, SPARK Publications designed my award-winning book, Live Full Throttle.  

 Join me at this workshop

The Year of YOUR Book is a real world conversation about professionally custom-publishing your book. SPARK Publications will share the basic steps and processes toward becoming a self-published author.

This 90-minute session, held in Charlotte, NC, will include an interactive panel discussion with successful self-publishers (including yours truly) who will share their experiences with you and answer your questions. After the formal presentation, we’ll sign books and mix-and-mingle.

We’ll address these and other questions and concerns:

  • What are the steps and costs involved in custom-publishing your own book?
  • Fears of publishing a book on your own, without a “publishing house.”
  • How to make a custom-published book succeed.
  • Confusion with the differences between P.O.D (online) publishing, digital printing, traditional publishing  and eBooks, (and choosing what’s best for you).
  • Using a book as a business builder: best practices.
  • How a book will help you land more and better speaking and media opportunities.
  • Choosing between hiring a ghostwriter, writing coach, editor, copy editor, proofreader… and determining which one your book needs.
  • Design, production, distribution, marketing, promotions, PR – how do you get your book “out there?”

 Get answers to these questions and more during this 90-minute presentation. Cost is just $65 per person, plus the chance to win an autographed book from one of the panelists. I am not being compensated for participating, in case you’re wondering.
