Anita has self-published 17 books, and isn’t afraid to admit it took her 10 times to get the formula exactly right. In this workshop Anita takes participants step-by-step through the publishing process so they will avoid all the mistakes she made, and end up with a polished, professional product the first time!
So, you have dreamed, drafted, created and re-drafted your first book. Congratulations! As the author of 16 books myself, I know the elation of holding a finished, treasured manuscript in my hands. But some would argue the real work is yet to begin, for a manuscript is still but a manuscript until it is published into a book.
Every author has several options when it comes to publishing. I know this because I've tried them all…
You can write dozens of pitch letters to various publishing houses around the country or even the world.
You can apply to literary agents to represent you, and if you're lucky have them return your call. Or,
You can take responsibility for your own product, branding, success and destiny by self-publishing.
From setting up your own "self-publishing brand" to having a finished product ready to launch world-wide, this 2-hour workshop will cover...
• The pros and cons of self-publishing, and how to avoid the pitfalls
• The 10-step process of self-publishing and flourishing
• The 11th commandment and how it makes or breaks your book's success
• Tips for branding and registering "you" and your work
• Distribution options, both in stores and online
• Launching your book - celebrate your first of many sales
Whether your manuscript is unfinished or complete, fiction, non-fiction, a memoir, a cookbook, a collection of poems or a family tree, this workshop will give you invaluable tips for preparing your work so that you end up with a polished, professional product.
This workshop is very hands-on – to get the most out of it, it is recommended you bring:
• Your work-in-progress, whether it is still in draft form or a finished manuscript
• Your questions – the workshop is interactive and there is Q&A time
• Cash (or credit card) for the various goodies which will be on sale
• An open mind and heart – you could walk away with a publishing contract!
I've been working in publishing for over twenty years both behind the scenes and as a writer, and thought I knew well how the entire process works. But Anita Revel's workshop opened my eyes to the ways self-publishing! It provided inspiring, practical information for me, and taught me some new lessons. For anyone wishing to self-publish their work, I absolutely recommend this workshop as a vital step to knowing and understanding what it is you are entering into. I truly believe Anita can help save you a great deal of heartache, money and time-wasting trips into the many pitfalls of publishing. With her help, you'll know HOW to create books that will help you publish, and prosper!
