    • 18 Steps to Successful Self-Publishing:
      Thursday, September 30, 2:00–3:00 p.m.
      For nearly a decade, Kerrie Flanagan has immersed herself into the world of self-publishing by publishing 17 of her own books, writing articles about the topic, and helping dozens of other authors through the entire process. Through her experiences, she came up with 18 necessary steps to not only publish a great book, but to also create a successful self-publishing career. In this workshop, she will cover each of these steps and provide you with the information you need to begin creating, publishing, and marketing a high-quality book that will rise above the millions of self-published titles already out there.
