The world of publishing continually goes through rapid changes. Self-publishing doesn’t have the stigma it once did, but there are still pitfalls, dead ends, and ways that you can easily overspend or have a bad experience. This class is designed to help demystify the entire publishing process. You will learn the ins and outs of self-publishing, and as a result, will have the knowledge to successfully publish your own book. In the end, even if you choose to go through a traditional publisher, knowing what your options are will make you a more savvy author.
