Self publishing for editors

727 views

Published on

Are you interested in working with self-publishing authors? Self-publishing authors are, in essence, publishers, which means that they need to educate themselves about the steps in the publishing process. The publishing landscape is changing fast, and for editors interested in working with self-publishing authors, it's important to stay abreast of these changes. Editors often know more than they think about what's involved in getting a book from manuscript to market. And what they don't know, they can learn, by exploring topics in self-publishing.
