Self-Publishing

What is self publishing? For those of you are not aware, self publishing means to publish (a book) using the author's own resources.

So rather than taking the traditional route of submitting your manuscript to a publishing company and receiving royalties, consider the alternative. As the author, you're responsible and in control of the entire process, which includes design (cover/interior), formats, pricing, distribution, marketing, and public relations.

Now, I know a few of our Meetup members have self published their very own books. So if anyone of you would like to volunteer any of your experience, please feel free to attend and offer your expertise.  

So come and learn about that process that can definitely help you spread your voice to the public.

    Awesome comments! I'm sad that I was unable to make it. However, Sarah has done an awesome job lately running the meetup while I've gotten married and am buying a house, not to mention the normal (and not normal) stuff that life throws at you! My sincere thanks to Sarah for making this group shine, and for all of you for participating. If we have not yet met, I look forward to it, soon!

    How was it? Well for those who didn't show-up, you missed a great meet-up. Sara provided us with a lot of leads as well as other members who are published authors gave their helpful hints. It was a great subject to talk about. The time went so fast, that I wished it hadn't ended. One thing for sure, I left there all charged up, ready to go gung-ho on my writing. I am already looking forward to May's meet-up. Dying of curiosity as to what will be discussed. Hope to see everyone there. Thanks Sara for the wonderful time we as writers had.

    Self-Publishing was an informative Meetup in which various members discussed the road to self-publishing. The relaxed atmosphere and cohesive focal points added to the experience. Overall the Meetup was very informative and fun at the same time.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
