September Workshop: Christine Kaine – “eBooks & ePublishing with Amazon”

8th September @ 1:00pm - 3:30pm

Self-publishing is fast becoming an integral part of the life of the writer. If you are an expert in any field you can write a how-to guide in days, not weeks or years, and be selling it as an ebook on Amazon the next day. With a little more effort you can publish this same book as a Print on Demand edition which can then be ordered through your local book store. You can do the same with all your writing. Perhaps you are a poet, or a short story writer, in which case you can gather all your pieces together into a book and make it available to the world with surprisingly little effort. Or maybe you have been chipping away at a novel for years which has been rejected by publishers, or you haven’t even had the courage to approach a publisher, now you can self-publish.

Over the last 6 years Christine Kaine (under her pen name) has published 19 books and she will share her knowledge of the process in a Workshop. Bring along your laptop or iPad, and if possible a piece of your writing and you will be guided through all the steps to becoming a published author on Amazon.
