Members and guests had a wonderful opportunity on the evening of 10th April at Coffs Harbour Library, where they experienced a presentation and hands-on session about getting started, including the pitfalls of eBook Publishing.
After the facilitated PowerPoint presentation the attendees experienced an interactive ‘hands on’ navigating session through E-Book Publishing organisations, for example: Lulu, Amazon and Smashworks. These companies were used as an example and set up on Rosalie’s homepage of her blog http://www.rosalieskinner.blogspot.com.au
This enable all attendees, using either the Libraries computers or their own laptops or iPads to experience what each company offered in the way of e-publishing, including the areas covered in the workshop; copyright, cover, editing, formatting, distribution and marketing.
Establishing the interactive session using Rosalie’s blog was an excellent way of demonstrating how to get started, including the necessary research required before authors take the next step into publishing their own works using today’s ‘digital age tools’ of e-publishing.
Thanks Rosalie for sharing your knowledge and experience.
