"I publish my own books, so there isn't a certain editor I owe the book to at a publishing house." -- Dave Eggers, author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
Denver Public Library hosts a workshop designed to help writers navigate the changing world of self-publishing.
In 2008, there was a paradigm shift in the publishing world: more book titles were self-published than published through traditional means. In 2009, 76% of new book titles came into being by self-publishing. London-based author Dean Fetzer is leading the charge for the brave new world of publishing. He helms our upcoming workshop focused on self-publishing for new authors.
Author, Author! Self-Publishing for the Modern World with Dean Fetzer
Saturday, May 11, 2-4 p.m.
Central Library, Level B2 Conference Center
Seating is limited, registration required
The new economics of publishing has ushered in the era of self-publishing. Once called ‘vanity publishing’ and reserved for books of family recipes or indulgent tomes of personal poetry, self-publishing is becoming a standard for new and established authors. Join author, designer and indie publisher Dean Fetzer for a workshop designed to help you on the way to publishing the book you’ve been writing. Dean provides an overview of the self-publishing business and a selection of tips and tricks to help you develop an author platform and get your work noticed. Dean’s been a graphic designer for more than 20 years, designing for print and then the Internet before naturally moving into book design. In 2009, he launched GunBoss Books and has been helping other authors publish their books since 2011.
