Every writer dreams of publishing their book and making money from it. But that dream can feel overwhelming. Where should we start?
Kyle Pratt, a local best-selling author, knows how to find success in the world of indie-publishing and on December 12 and 16 he will be giving a two-part program on how anyone can find similar success.
On December 12, the Centralia Library is having a Thank Goodness it’s Over (TGIO) party to celebrate the end of Nanowrimo and help authors do something with the manuscript they worked on during November. Kyle will be speaking about the business of writing and the four means of publishing available to authors in the digital age.
The party is from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Everyone is invited, not just Nanowrimo participants. This is part one of Kyle’s two-part program. The second part will be at the Lewis County Writer’s Guild meeting on Friday so plan to bookend your week with great publishing information.
The Guild’s regular meeting will be from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Kyle will be our speaker and he will explain how to market your book once you have it published. Because what’s the point of publishing a book if no one reads it? Kyle has tried many different types of marketing and he will share what works best without leaving you feeling icky.
