Kindle and print on demand have revolutionised ePublishing, so for many authors DIY is the way to go rather than wasting time chasing elusive agents and even rarer publishing deals.
Indie publishing is a tool for writers to take control, eg producing books for niche markets that trade publishers ignore.
This short workshop provides an overview of what an author needs to know about self-publishing as well as how to become a professional, self-publishing entity.
Amongst many other things, first time e-authors can learn the essential steps and stages involved in formatting a manuscript for upload to various platforms such as Kindle and Smashwords, through to how to use social media and other means to market the final product.
