Self-Publishing for Fiction Writers

Whether you’re an industry veteran with a backlist or a first-time novelist, you need to know your options in the fiction market. In this workshop, Christy finalist, RITA winner, and author of the bestselling Magnificent Devices series, Shelley Adina will guide you through these options as you pursue self-publishing with the major online retailers. 

Want to know why discoverability beats marketing ability? Interested in targeting your readers like a stealth plane? Do you really need an ISBN, and where do you get one?

From opening your own accounts, learning formatting tricks, and laughing at bad cover art, this is a hands-on workshop that will give you some tools with which to evaluate your next steps along the publishing path. 

Members of ACFW and our local chapter: $5
Non-members: $10
First-time visitors: free

Join us afterwards for a no-host luncheon at a local restaurant. Our local membership includes about 38 writers who are also part of the national ACFW.

    Great information and networking opportunity. 21 of us showed up. Shelley Adina definitely knows the ins and outs of self-publishing through her personal experience writing and publishing her Magnificent Devices steampunk fiction!
