Learn the Truth from South Bay Writers Authors

WHAT ARE THE REAL COSTS OF
WRITING & PUBLISHING?

hidden-costs_lincoln-200What are the real costs, financial and otherwise, related to writing and publishing your work? It’s hard to find trusted information. On Monday, April 13, seven South Bay Writers authors will share their experiences from the trenches.

South Bay Writers authors Robert Balmanno, Dave L. Breithaupt, Hi-Dong Chai, Valerie Estelle Frankel, Marjorie Johnson, Victoria M. Johnson, and Helen Vanderberg will tell us their stories of publishing, promoting, and sales. They will relate–from a business perspective–what they did, what it cost, and their resulting returns. The panel will answer questions such as:

  • What services should I employ?
  • How much should I pay an editor for copy, for line, for content?
  • How much does a publicist make and is it a function I need?
  • What does it cost to print a book and what about distribution?
  • How do I self-publish and sell, and what is my net?
  • And much more!

Be prepared to bring your questions for the after-panel Q&A session!
