Topics for discussion

  • What’s the difference between traditional publishing (via agent/publisher) and self-publishing?
  • What’s involved in self-publishing?  Costs … time … energy?
  • What skills/talents are needed to self-publish?
  • What ‘professional’ services might be used en route? Developmental editors, copy editors, line editors, proofreaders …
  • What courses are available to explain the publishing/marketing process?
  • Genre! Marketing via Amazon and other straightjackets …
  • How to ‘sell’ your book .. branding, establishing yourself as an authority, maintaining your presence in the market place
  • The need to be more than a one-book wonder?

I am happy to share my experience as a student of Self-Publishing School which culminated in the self-publication of Editing the RedPen Way, plus my experiences of being traditionally published (all text books) and my work as a developmental editor, copy editor and proofreader for decades.

I hope everyone else will also be happy to share their experiences to date so that we can learn from each other.

The meeting(s) will not be recorded – what’s said in the Zoom stays in the Zoom. And no minutes of the meeting!! It’s literally a talking shop … BYO coffee and biscuits …
