In today’s giveaway, Writers Helping Writers takes on…Self Publishing!
This is a publishing alternative that many of us are turning to as it holds so much potential for reaching the right audience for our book. Self publishing requires a lot of work and heart, and so we wanted to gather some experts in the field to help someone start down this path right.
- A 45 minute Skype or Facetime chat with one of the hardest working Indies in the business: YA author Susan Kaye Quinn
- A FULL Manuscript read-through to highlight concerns and suggest alternatives by Quilldrivers editor, Jeff Hill
- A stunning e-cover design from sought after cover artist, Heather McCorkle
- An e-copy of the newly-minted Indie Author Survival Guide
Susan Kaye Quinn’s impressive sales, business savvy, and ability to find and connect with readers will greatly help a writer entering the SP arena. Susan is a born researcher, and the knowledge she’s amassed on Self Publishing, along with her entrepreneurial spirit, make her a force on the Indie Stage.
Marketing success is dependent on producing a high quality, engaging book, and Quilldrivers Editor Jeff Hill’s twenty years of experience offers him the editorial insight and knowledge to help elevate a novel to the next level.
And right up there with providing a high quality and engaging book is having a captivating cover tailored to your exact audience. The talented Heather McCorkle designs covers for indies as well as Promontory Press, and will give your novel the face it needs to draw readers in. As an author herself, she understands the business, and how to give a book cover that WOW factor. She also designs everything from bookmarks to business cards.
