If you’ve ever thought about turning your written work into a book but don’t know where to start, this event is for you. Self publishing experts Anna and Lucy, from Lancaster-based Scotforth Books, will be on hand to explain how you can realise your publishing dreams – and there isn’t much they don’t know between them about making books!
More and more authors are self-publishing, and these are just some of the reasons that you might be considering doing the same:
- You have written something that is specialised or personal and only want a few copies, possibly as gifts or family heirlooms
- You have access to a market for your book (eg a church, school or society) and wish to have a high quality product to sell to those who are likely to be interested
- Your book is one that you believe can sell and what you need is a very well-produced volume with which you can approach booksellers, reviewers and maybe literary agents
- It is important to you to have total control over how your book is published, including its content, design and publication date
There will be lots of sample books to look at, and free information to take away, so do drop in and see how we can help. For some initial food for thought before you join us, you might like to visit www.scotforthbooks.com
