Lesson 4: Saturday, November 18th, 1pm EST
Live lesson taught by Ryan Cipriani
Ryan will take you from finished manuscript to first sale in this 4-part video course.
Lesson 1 will show you how to turn the raw manuscript into a printable package, including cover design and formatting for both paper and e-books. From DIY to hiring an illustrator and book design service, you’ll discover your options for every budget level.
Lesson 2 covers The Legal “Stuff”. Protect yourself with copyright, securing ISBN numbers, and when to form an LLC for your author business. You want to get this stuff right… the first time.
Lesson 3 covers Getting Your Book Out There. How do printing and distribution work, and what are the benefits of Print On Demand and boutique publishing houses? How can you get your book into bookstores, libraries, and signing events?
Lesson 4 covers Marketing & Timelines. Learn about building an audience on social media and using ARCs. Ryan also outlines a full timeline of the self publishing journey so you know exactly which parts to do which order, and how long each step should take (roughly).
