With the help of today's technology there are now more affordable ways than ever to publish your own book.
The purpose of this "Get Published" seminar is to help attendees make informed decisions about their own publishing options, including the economics, current business models, and changing technology. Learn about the promise and pitfalls of traditional publishing, self-publishing, print-on-demand, and e-books.
Join other professionals and writers in a setting where you can ask questions to learn more about the possibilities of publishing. The seminar includes a presentation, interactive discussion, and a question and answer session, with handouts for all participants.
Writing a book is the single most effective tool for entrepreneurs, specialists and artists to market their work and to gain credibility, visibility, and income. By sharing your special expertise, or telling a story through a book, you position yourself as an author and an expert - and can gain new opportunities. Marketing your business through your book will attract speaking engagements, consulting possibilities, and new clients and customers. Published authors can increase their value by bundling books with their other products and services.
About Lindsay Whiting
Drawing from over twenty years of experience in print production and publishing, award-winning author and publisher Lindsay Whiting consults with individuals who have written information to share and want to self-publish their material in book or electronic formats. "There are lots of folks who have finished manuscripts, but don't know what steps to take to get them into print," Whiting says. "My focus is consulting with those whose writing enhances their work-whether they are artists, speakers, teachers, or experts in their field. Publishing a book adds to their credibility, and gives them a valuable selling tool."
