There are many paths to becoming an independently published author but understanding the pros and cons of each can be overwhelming. This two-part class will focus on the nuts and bolts of the publishing process with real-world advice from a successful self-published author. Part one will discuss how to create a publishing strategy and what comes before a book’s release, such as cover art, ISBNs, and formatting. Part two will cover how to solicit reviews, social media strategies, marketing, and other work that happens after the book is live to the world. You will leave with an understanding of the many options available to an aspiring indie author and the budget needed to turn your manuscript into a published book.

Sara Holifield is a Nashville-based writer who creates award-winning grant proposals for nonprofit organizations by day and writes steamy paranormal fantasy romance by night. Her debut novel, Unbound by Shadows, was released under the pen name Avalon Griffin.
