Free Self-Publishing Webcast

Thursday, February 08, 2018

Getting a book published is a top goal for many aspiring writers, but understanding the publishing options can be overwhelming and confusing. In this information-packed webcast, some of the myths you may have heard about publishing will be set straight.

What Does This Self-Publishing Webcast Cover?

Every author needs to understand their publishing options before they pursue a publishing path. The path you choose may be decided by any number of factors, including your genre, your finances, or desired timeframe. This webcast intends to cover some of those topics and essential facts every author needs to know before committing to a particular publishing path.

From this free self-publishing webcast, you'll learn:

  • The pros and cons of traditional publishing and self-publishing
  • How the decision may be different for fiction vs. nonfiction
  • The short- and long-term financial impact of both publishing routes
  • Time to market and distribution options
  • Steps needed to land a traditional book deal

Who Are the Hosts?

Stephanie Chandler is the founder and CEO of the Nonfiction Authors Association and has been both traditionally published and self-published. She's savvy in both publishing models and able to offer advice based on her personal experience. She's also the author of nine books, including The Nonfiction Book Marketing Plan: Online and Offline Promotion Strategies to Build Your Audience and Sell More Books.

Stephanie has contributed blog posts to the IngramSpark blog before on this topic, so if you'd like a sneak peak of a bit of what she may cover during the webcast, feel free to start here:

Grant Faulkner is the Executive Director of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). IngramSpark is a big supporter of NaNoWriMo and we've written blog posts about the movement that takes place every November. During NaNoWriMo, writers around the world unite in a common goal of writing a 50,000-word novel in one month. It's intense, but also incredible. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll crumple pages, and experience writing epiphanies. Grant has also contributed fantastic blog posts to the IngramSpark blog which you can check out here:
