How to Become an Indie Author
Publishing your work and launching it into the literary marketplace is easier than ever now with the advent of self-publishing platforms like Kindle, Create Space, Smashwords, Pronoun, Kobo, and others. Aspiring authors have many opportunities to sell their work to readers all over the world via online booksellers and social media. Join me as I explain how to start your project; create a publishable manuscript; build your social media platform; choose your publishing partners; and promote and market your work. This class is recommended for anyone interested in self-publishing a novel, memoir, children's book, or non-fiction work. The first session will cover Write and Release; the second will cover Retail.

How to Independently 
Publish Your Own Book
With today's technology and the internet, you can do this yourself and share your work with friends, family, and readers all over the world. Sign up for the following classes where I will share my Adventures in Publishing and show you how I published my first novel in print, digital, and audiobook. Topics I'll cover include: changes in the publishing industry over the last ten years, including electronic publishing; the trend toward independent publishing and its growing acceptance among readers; why authors might choose to go this route rather than seek traditional publishing, and the pros and cons of each; as well as the work involved in publishing and marketing your own book. This class will be of interest to anyone thinking of publishing a book, whether it's a novel, poetry, memoir, family history, cookbook, etc.

Social Media for Authors & Others
In our digital age we are constantly asked to tweet, post, share, follow and friend. What does all this mean? For authors seeking discoverability and others trying to build a platform in social media, all of this can be confusing and overwhelming. Join me for a two-hour hands-on workshop to learn how to make sense of Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. Develop skills to build your own "pages" and learn how to upload content, gain followers, and increase your online visibility. This is a course in basic social media skills for those interested in promoting themselves and their products to a global audience. Please bring a fully charged laptop or tablet. This is not required but may enhance your experience.
