On Saturday, June 25, at the Main Library, the Library Foundation’s Writer-In-Residence Jeffrey Hillard explored the foundations, options, trends, and how-to’s that make self-publishing a viable opportunity for writers of both fiction and non-fiction. Jeffrey touched on some of the pros of indie publishing such as improved control. Jeffery says, “the majority of indie writers state total control as most important rationale for decision” for indie publishing. He lists other pros such as: publication time frame is optimal, which is a radical change from traditional publishing; ability to forge a career as writer is more opportune than ever and reasonable; gaining gratification can be gained by seeing your writing career grow; gaining satisfaction in reaching your personal writing goals as a result of indie control. Jeffery adds, “your success depends on quality of book, production, & marketability.” For more tips, Jeffrey’s presentation, which has loads of useful suggestions, has been posted to SlideShare.
