The basic book making process is something that every self-publishing author should be aware of. Whether you are undertaking publishing tasks yourself or engaging professional help, you need to understand what goes into making a book, such as:

  • Editing and interior formatting
  • Cover design
  • ISBN, copyright, and other data
  • Printing economics
  • Marketing and sales

By the end of this presentation, you will have a clear idea of how to take control of your publishing process. You’ll have the tools to find, evaluate and engage professional help, if needed, and will have a list of resources to help you on the path to exceptional and affordable self-publishing.
