Independent Publication – A How To Guide
Open forum. A basic outline of how to publish a textbook independently. I can field specific questions from audience members, but if there are not so many questions, then I can guide participants through the entire process, from initial concept to finished product. The long journey of producing a textbook can be analogous to a pipeline. The pipeline has many joints and connections along the way: desktop publishing software, audio, web pages, trial runs, printers, ISBN, storage, marketing, distributors, book stores, and customers. At any one juncture, the process can be stopped completely or can be diverted as necessary. Please bring your questions and insights to this open forum. Experienced authors and people new to the field are all welcome. Let’s help each other bring the best content to our students.
Here is a link to my website which has many of the resources I’ll be talking about: https://johncarlejapan.wixsite.com/publishing
