What we're about


I'm Carla King, founder of Destination Published (https://destinationpublished.com). I've relocated to Santa Cruz and I'm looking forward to starting the group anew here. We can meet on Zoom or in person in Santa Cruz and the San Jose-San Francisco Bay Area.

I've been helping writers finish and publish their books since about 2005 with self-publishing boot camps. Topics we can explore include:

• Preparing Your Manuscript for Publishing

• Self-Publishing

• Hybrid Publishing

• Book Production

• Book Marketing & Publicity

• Book Launches

My passion and purpose is writing and publishing and helping authors avoid predatory publishing services and get their book successfully out into the world.
