Workshop Title: Self-Publishing With CreateSpace
Presenters: Elysabeth Eldering and Nancy Famolari
Date: September 16, 2011 (Friday)
Time: 4:00 – 5:00 PM, EST (U.S.)
Format: Live Online Chat
Today, more and more authors are taking their writing careers into their own hands. Self-publishing through services like Amazon’s CreateSpace is a viable option, but how do you go about it and what are the potential costs?
Is Self-Publishing using CreateSpace really free?
Nancy Famolari and Elysabeth Eldering will take you through the process of creating and printing a book through CreateSpace, including what the costs are to an indie author.
Nancy will discuss the points of doing all the work from creating a cover, doing a layout, and submitting files to print.
Elysabeth will discuss the process of hiring someone to do the cover, layout and converting files to make them print ready.
We’ll also go over when to order an actual proof copy and when it can be bypassed, as well and utilizing the Proadvantage option for distribution.
And, don't forget that you can take your print ready documents and submit to Kindle and Nook. In addition, there will be a brief discussion on listing books on www.kindlegraph.com for e-signatures and personalized messages to buyers. This is not just for e-books.
There will also be a bonus PDF workshop handout included and a workshop transcript available upon request.
