Publishing Your First Book
Maybe you’ve browsed through some less-than-spectacular selections in your local bookstore and thought, “I could do better.” Or perhaps your first novel has been sitting, neglected and dusty, in your bottom desk drawer. When you want to publish a book, it can be tough knowing where to start. Should you self-publish? Should you use a literary agent? Will you need a lawyer to look over the paperwork before you sign a contract? And what does it feel like when your book is finally in print and you’re holding a copy in your hands? Join us this Friday for a conversation on publishing your first book.
