We’ve come a long way from the days of vanity books—when authors paid to publish their books after being rejected by traditional publishers—to a new era when many authors deliberately choose to self-publish. GardenComm member Carol Michel will draw upon her own experiences of self-publishing five, soon to be six, books to help you determine if self-publishing is a good option for your next book.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • The pros and cons of self-publishing.
  • Different approaches you can take to self-publish your book.
  • Costs to self-publish your book, and recommendations on where to spend your money.
