Publishing Consultations at Four Eyed Frog Books, Cypress Village returns Thursday, May 10 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.
The Mendonoma Coast has no shortage of creative people. For writers, getting their book published can sometimes seem daunting. If you're curious about how to turn your manuscript (or the vision of it) into a finished book? Four Eyed Frog Books and graphic designer & marketer, Connie King, will once again join together to offer their monthly free publishing consultations and the basics of self-publishing your book. Open to all, it's at the Frog on Tuesday, February 13 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. Drop in to discuss your specific work with Connie, and questions are welcomed!
Topics include keys to understanding print-on-demand publishing, file prep for production, the importance of good editing and design, how to acquire ISBNs/copyrights/LCCNs, choosing a printer, e-books or print, distribution, seller commissions, and marketing — the basic 101 of self-publishing.
Connie King career has included graphic design for exhibitions and marketing at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, consulting with other Bay Area museums, and design, writing, and publishing for North Bay businesses and writers. Her book design and publishing services for local authors include Rim of the World by Robert Scarola, Mapping the Sea Ranch by Phil Graf, Wild Solitude by Lorraine Lipani, and The Happy Book by the 2nd and 3rd grade class at Horicon Elementary school.
