HOW TO SELF-PUBLISH & ILLUSTRATE YOUR CHILDREN’S BOOK
A FREE Presentation for the NC Writers’ Network
Want to write and publish a children’s story? Within a year?
Author-Publisher Maureen Buff shares with us why she chose to self-publish and illustrate her children’s book. In her presentation, Maureen explains how she went from the idea to the finished product, all within a year.
Maureen will address the differences between self-publishing and traditional publishing, hiring a mentor, editing/getting feedback, Amazon KDP publishing, and Adobe Illustrator.
Whether you’ve only got an idea or a complete manuscript, you’ll participate in a fun activity full of self-discovery.
Come and find out!
Our presentation is hosted by our own, dynamic Mel Pitts.
