Have you ever thought about publishing a book? Didn't know where to start? What about making it work while in Korea? 

Self-publish your e-book workshop in Seoul and Daejeon, Nov. 24 and Dec. 1

Have you ever thought about publishing a book? Didn't know where to start? What about making it work while in Korea? 

Self-publishing pays better royalties, goes from your computer to 'on sale' in a matter of days, and offers your masterpiece to people around the world. Companies like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, Smashwords, Ko

bo, and plenty of others have made it easier than ever to be published. If you’re interested in getting your words printed, there are also some exciting ways to create a print-on-demand book.

To be clear, this is not a writing group. It is, however, is perfect for you if you've written a book, are writing a book (November is NaNoWriMo!), or have thought about getting something published. 

This three-hour event will be held in central Seoul and Daejeon, and just like last time, both of the presenters will stick around afterwards to answer questions. This workshop is for people that are looking to understand the marketing, technical, and business aspects of self-publishing – and be part of a community of other self-publishers.

Some questions we'll be answering:

Technical aspects:
~ How do I put my book up for sale?
~ What pitfalls or issues should I be aware of?
~ How do I insert Korean characters?
~ What's the submission process like?
~ Which computer program should I use to create my book?

Business aspects:
~ How do I price my book?
~ How do I receive the money while here in Korea?
~ Where do I find support or people to work with?
~ Which services or stores should I use? Which stores aren't worth bothering with?
~ What do I do next?

Marketing aspects:
~ What's the best way to market my book?
~ How do I get people to review my book?
~ What's the best strategy to use social networking?
~ Should I offer my book for free for a limited time?
~ Where should I promote my book, and how?

The workshop will cost 50,000 won, which can be paid in cash on arrival.
