Have you ever wondered how books are produced? Once a manuscript is finished, what exactly happens to it before it heads to the printer and then to store shelves?
I’ve been a consultant in the publishing industry for a while now, and I’d like to answer those questions for you. There are five critical steps that every professionally published book must take before it goes to the printer.
At 7pm tonight, September 3, 2014, Columbus Creative Cooperative will host a free self-publishing seminar at our headquarters, 2997 Indianola Ave., Columbus, OH 43202 (in The Salt Mines). This event is open to the public, you do NOT need to be a CCC member to come.
If you’re thinking about self-publishing, or even if you’re taking your book the traditional publishing route, this is invaluable information.
Readers judge books on a lot of different criteria. It’s not just the words that are important, things like editing quality, design principles and even the feel of the pages impact how a reader evaluates your book. The five steps we’ll discuss tonight will put your self-published book on a path to compete with its traditionally published counterparts.
I believe that self-publishing can be a legitimate path for an author. But only if it’s done right. The self-publishing industry is tarnished by lots of people (and self-publishing companies sadly enough) that aren’t committed to producing great books, or simply don’t know how. Come out tonight to learn how to be one of the good guys. Together we can raise the industry standard for self-published books, and further legitimize the endeavor for entrepreneurial authors everywhere.
This is a free seminar, and it is open to the public. Come on out and get your learn on.
