In today’s Publetariat Dispatch, The Book Designer Joel Friedlander provides an overview of how to create an effective self-publishing strategy.
Carla King’s Self-Publishing Bootcamp at Stanford University turned into a terrific event. Through everyone I talked to I could tell that it was an engaged and well-prepared group of attendees who were getting a huge amount of information about self-publishing in a few hours.
I decided not to talk about book design but instead did a presentation on figuring out your publishing strategy in an environment with a staggering number of options and a landscape that’s shifting under our feet.
You can get a really good idea of what it was about from the slides. Here’s a selection of 18 drawn from a 59-slide presentation.
I Love to Speak about Indie Publishing
I find it terrifically exciting to communicate the awesome opportunities in the world of book publishing, and that’s one of the reasons I was glad to accept Carla’s offer.
Book publishing right now is a confusing and shifting enterprise being disrupted regularly by new technology. I make navigating that field easier. It’s what I do on this blog, and the feedback I get tells me that with a little explanation people can eliminate weeks or months of frustration and endless confusing research.
Would your company or organization like to find out more about how self-publishing works? I’d love to talk with you about it.
