SC Comicon on March 9 - 10, 2019 in Greenville, SC


The Broadleaf Writers Self-Publishing Seminar on Saturday, March 16th, 2019 at the Cobb Galleria in Atlanta, GA (Ballroom B) from 9:00 am - 4:30 pm.
Sign up for the event HERE. Space is limited.

You’ve done the work. You’ve researched agents, pitched your manuscript, submitted to any press with open submissions. You’ve waited. And waited. You know your book is good enough. You worked hard writing it. You worked with an editor. Your beta readers loved it. How long will you have to wait?

The world of publishing is overwhelming. It’s frustrating. It can even shake the nerves of writers with well-received books released from major houses. The more you consider it, the more horror stories you hear, the less you want to go that route. Your manuscript deserves better. But what are you supposed to do?

Perhaps you should publish it yourself.

Great! Yes! Wonderful!

So, how does that work?

Let us help you.

The Broadleaf Writers Association is pleased to present its first Self-Publishing Seminar! Join us Saturday, March 16th, 2019 at the Cobb Galleria, and learn from writers who have successfully published their own work! Whether you’re looking to print new work, or take the rights you’ve regained from books previously published, our panelists are here to guide you through the process and offer you plenty of tips and resources to ease the journey.

We’ll tackle it all: Which printing company should I use? How do I design a killer cover? eBook or print? Or both? Where can I find a good editor, and how thoroughly should my manuscript be edited? What kind of costs are involved? How do I get my book into bookstores and libraries? What kind of marketing plan should I consider?

It can be overwhelming. But you can do it. We can help.

Take the step toward publication. Join us and learn how to navigate the world of the self-published author.

9:00 a.m. – 9:15 a.m. Introduction and Welcome Zachary Steele, Executive Director and Founder of Broadleaf Writers

9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. The Choice to Self-Publish: Why You Should (or shouldn’t) You have your manuscript written and edited. But you can’t decide whether to pursue a traditional publishing contract or take on the process yourself. Join our panel as they discuss the process of self-publication, what it means to your work, what rights you can maintain, and why it might be the best path for you.

10:45 a.m. – 11:45 p.m. How Long Will it Take?: The Process of Self-Publishing Once you’ve decided to self-publish, the real work begins. How long will it take to get your book in print? How do you decide on where to print? Our panelists will walk you through the options, offers resources, and guide you on to the next step!

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Putting it All Together: Editing, Cover Design, Interior Design and More! It’s time to get your manuscript ready to print! In this panel, we’ll tackle how to find an editor that suits your work, how to make sure the interior of your book is clean and structured properly, the all-important visual of making the perfect cover, and most importantly: How much will all this cost?

1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Lunch There are options for lunch in the Cobb Galleria and across the walkway to Cumberland Mall. Our speakers will be available during lunch should you wish to ask more questions!

2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Sell More Books: Publicity and Marketing Before and After Publication Whether you self-publish or take the traditional route, marketing and publicity will fall on your shoulders. Be prepared for the task ahead and start your promotion before your book is ready to sell! From social media, to bookstores, to local libraries and so much more, the promotion of your book requires your full attention.

3:45 p.m. – 4:45 p.m. Something Learned, Something Shared: Self-Publishing Success Tips and Tricks Some of the greatest success stories come from those who made more than their share of mistakes. Our panelists are ready to share some tips and tricks they’ve learned along the way, to lead you down the path to success with your book!
