Traditional? Self? Hybrid? Rate yourself in terms of your goals, your finances, and your skills — and THEN decide which publishing path is right for you.
Book publishing can feel like the Wild West — a land of opportunity and excitement, and also a land where no one quite knows what the rules are. It can be an overwhelming task for writers to figure out the best way through this unknown terrain. Save yourself hours of googling and sifting through misinformation. Through video lessons and worksheets from Jennie Nash, this course provides a clear, honest overview of traditional publishing, self-publishing, and hybrid publishing. You’ll also receive lists of helpful resources for each category. Interactive self-assessment tools such as “decision point” worksheets and budgeting tools help you to pinpoint your goals, skills, and finances. By the end of the course, you’ll come away with a clearer sense of which path to publishing is right for you.
