Self Publishing Workshop with Peggy DeKay
Author of Self Publishing For Virgins
Writers self publish for three reasons: money, creative control and timing. This class will lead you through the process of self publishing from manuscript to marketing your finished book. Using CreateSpace and Microsoft Word, an author can quickly self-publish a book with little money and limited computer skills. Whether an aspiring author or a published author looking for a better way, this class is for you. (excerpt from the website)
