Publishing and Promoting your Book
As a self-publisher, the author/artist often has to act as a publisher, publicist, and social media guru. Learn of the technologies involved in publishing your own work and how to build an audience. Learn more about Offset Printing, Print-on-Demand (POD) printing, and the digital publishing process. Learn the best methods of self-promotion/marketing, from social networks (like Facebook and Twitter), crowdspeaking platforms (like Thunderclap), crowdfunding platforms (like Kickstarter), to blogs, newsletters, advertisements, promotional giveaways, and in-person appearances. In the current market, an author who doesn’t promote doesn’t sell. Learn to reach out to expand yourself, your options, and connecting in a world where what you know can hugely boost what you do.
