Welcome to the first annual DIY week at QSF. We’ve got a great line-up of topics for the week, some of which are moderated – but in general, we’ll just share information about how to start and manage a small press:
Wednesday: Editing and Production; ISBNs; eBooks or Paper?
Thursday: Getting Your Books Out There; Amazon; Other Venues
Friday: Promoting Your Work
Saturday: Mistakes to Avoid, Mistakes to Make, Keeping Up Your Morale;
Sunday: Taxes and Royalties
Also, we have a special event – an interview with Matt Buscemi, owner of Fuzzy Hedgehog Press, at 1 PM Pacific. Matt will talk about the trials, tribulations and rewards of running your own press.
Today we’re talking about the next steps… dealing with editing and producing your manuscripts, getting ISBNs for your books, and deciding if you will go for eBooks or paper, or both.
So if you publish your own books, please jump in and share your experiences – how you handle editing and production, acquiring a set of ISBNs, and which format you decided to put your books out in.
If you are considering going out on your own, bring us your questions!
These weeks work because of participation, so please jump in!
