In advance of our upcoming workshop, Self or Indie Publishing: Answering the Big Questions, we wondered just what the “big questions” might be. Darcy Pattison, our fearless workshop leader, took a survey and discovered the things most people were curious about. She’ll be answering ALL of these questions at the workshop!
Does self-publishing a children’s book close doors to the traditional publishing world?
Is the self-published route really a respectable way for a first-time author to go?
How much does it cost and when do you start earning income?
Do digital sales work for picture books and middle grade books? Can I publish my picture book only as an ebook? How do I make it look good in ebook format? You can get started at Darcy’s blog with eBook Formatting for Children’s Books.
Is it fiscally worth it? How is it better than traditional publishing?
