At her brown bag lunch earlier today, Jean Ann Geist (formerly of the BPCL) gave us a wealth of information about her journey through the self publishing world. Discussion items today touched on: why to self publish, finding a self publisher/printer, assembling a team, setting up a web site, designing promotional materials, getting an ISBN, registering for copyright, marketing your book (in person and on the web), how to get reviewed, publishing an e-edition, selling through Amazon, and much more.

Jean’s web site also has a great deal of information on it about self publishing, along with her schedule of appearances for the next several months. See it at http://www.jeananngeist.com/html/events.htm. Her site also has a number of useful links for self publishing – http://www.jeananngeist.com/html/links.htm.

Great session! Photos are below.
