Writing and Publishing Nonfiction Independent Study Course
- Module I: Introduction
- Module II: Completing Your Manuscript
- Module III: Traditional Publishers
- YOU ARE HERE. Module IV: Independent (Self) Publishing
- Module V: Promoting Your Book and Post-Publication Strategic Plans
Whereas Module III covered traditional publishing, Module IV will address self-publishing.
Module IV: Independent (or Self) Publishing
Module 4 will cover basic pointers for self-publishing. There will be 5 lectures, 1 workbook that you should complete, and supplementary handouts that you will want to go through in the order noted below. I’m also providing a few unaffiliated external links, so you have someplace to start shopping around for printing presses, getting price quotes, etc.
In the previous modules, the lectures were provided as audio recordings, but my laptop went kaput and I’ve been recording the audio with an app on my laptop. I don’t know how to do it with my desktop, so instead of mp4 files for download in Module 4, we have text–the audio lecture transcripts I would have read off of.
