In May of 2012, Christopher J. Lynch finished the first draft of his debut crime novel “One Eyed Jack.” By June 13th. he had it revised, edited, formatted, and published as both an e-book, and a “Print on Demand” on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Since then, he has enjoyed brisk sales, received rave reviews, done four author signings, and had it placed in Pages Bookstore, Small World Books, Apostrophe Books, and Frog Books. He also produced a video trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvraVL8dMY0,
and has done numerous guest blogs, author interviews, and promo pieces. How did he do it all in such a short time? He self-published.
Join us for an evening to explore the changing face of literature – self-publishing. Learn the ins and outs, the upside…and the downside of this brave new world we live in.
Christopher J. Lynch will share his experience and talk candidly about the self-publishing route and what it means to the writer of the 21st. Century. Some of the specific topics will be:
·What is traditional publishing versus self-publishing?
·Is self-publishing right for me, or for my book?
·What are the benefits to me, the writer, to self-publishing?
·What are the downsides to self-publishing?
·E-books, the agony and the ecstasy?
·What is POD (print on demand)?
·A crowded market place: “The good news is, anyone can self-publish. The bad news is, anyone can self-publish.”
·What are the steps necessary for self publishing?
·What are the costs involved?
