In today’s changing landscape of book publishing, what’s the best way to get your book
published and ensure its success?
The short answer is: It depends.
With different paths to publishing and endless opportunities for marketing, it’s essential
to know as much about the process as possible so you can make smart decisions for your own career as an author.
That’s why we’re devoting an entire week to the ins and outs of book publishing. You’ll
get a detailed picture of the industry and how to find your place in it, including
traditional, hybrid and self-publishing, plus building a following and feeling confident
about the decisions you make for yourself and your book.
And, through writing prompts and expert advice, you’ll strengthen your writing to make
your work—fiction and nonfiction—even more marketable.
This is all about greenlighting your way to success, which means advocating for yourself
and your book, no matter what path you take.
SheWrites Week gives you the inside information you need to use your time and money wisely.
It’s easy to make mistakes when you’re entering a new industry. For instance...
- What are the different paths to publishing my book?
- How do I decide which path is the best fit for me?
- What’s involved in building a platform, and when do I start?
- Do I really need an author website?
- Is Instagram better than Facebook for building a platform?
- How many followers do I need to make an impression on a publisher?
- How many book sales constitute a success?
- Does self-publishing mean I can’t sign with a traditional publisher later?
Between polishing your final draft and doing your first book-signing event, the business
of publishing may seem like a mysterious black hole. And there’s no doubt about it:
writing your book is just the beginning. What comes after is probably not the reason you
started writing in the first place, but it’s essential in becoming a successful author. That’s
what SheWrites Week is all about.
This is for you, whether you are a first-time author or have already been published.
If you’re working on your first book, this course will give you an invaluable overview of
the industry and how to navigate the right trajectory for you.
And if you’ve been published before, you probably already know that paths to publishing are fluid and may change with every book you write. Plus, opportunities for marketing change and expand every day.
Also, while this course supports women’s voices entering the publishing world, it will be
equally helpful for men. Please join us!
