Everyone has a story. And the book Everyday Storytellers: Professional Self-Publishing for Everyone, will help you tell yours.
The gatekeepers of the publishing world have changed. You no longer need an agent or a traditional publishing house to publish a best-seller. In fact, many best-selling authors say you shouldn’t bother with an agent or publishing house! Now the gatekeepers are all of us. We are the new authors, the new journalists, the new change agents, the new historians: the Everyday Storytellers.
Whether you want to publish a book to sell or are writing a memoir for yourself or your family, Everyday Storytellers: Professional Self-Publishing for Everyone is a step-by-step guide that will lead you through the process to professionally publish your book by yourself.
Among the topics covered are how to format your book for print and eBook; how to make a style sheet for proofreading and editing; why you should never publish a first draft; where and how to get a compelling cover design; how to write a short, dynamic, compelling title; why you should build your author platform; how to market your book and give value to your audience, and how to build an author media kit; how to list your book for sale online and on your website; how a short, dynamic book trailer will help you build a following; how to handle contracts and copyrights; how to protect your content; and why and how to give proper credit to others for their words, art, and ideas. You’ll also learn the value of hiring professionals to edit your book and design the cover.
Watch for Everyday Storytellers, coming August 2017.
