If you are like many professional editors today, you might find yourself working increasingly for self-publishing authors who value the service you provide. But often these authors also expect you to be a source of expertise when it comes to the self-publishing process overall. Even as you explain what you do or do not do as an editor, how can you help these authors? What basic information can you share to steer them toward a successful publishing experience?
In two meetings, book midwife and self-publishing consultant Ruth Schwartz will provide tips and resources to help you better understand the process yourself and to arm you with information to share with your clients. This short program is not intended to make you an expert who can guide your clients step by step, but it will give you the basics you need to discuss self-publishing with your authors and to dig deeper yourself if you choose.
