If you’re a writer based in the Twin Cities and considering publishing independently, you might benefit from taking the one-session class “Become a Savvy Indie Author” offered at the Loft Literary Center this spring.
I’m excited to be teaching this three-hour course on the fundamentals of indie publishing. I’ve been presenting on publishing and related topics to various audiences over the years, including a chapter of Romance Writers of America, an independent scholars’ group in the San Francisco Bay Area, and members of a professional editors’ association. I’m honored to have been chosen as a Loft teaching artist this year.
I’ll cover the key information indie authors need to make choices that will benefit their books. This includes the basics of the book production process and post-publishing systems like distribution and sales channels.
I’ll explain the various types of publishing services and offer practical tips on questions to ask service providers and how to work with them effectively.
Finally, I will guide writers on how to assess their book projects and their own resources to determine the best route to their publishing goals.
I’m intending this class for both aspiring indie authors and those who’ve published before but want to have a better experience with their next book.
