Dr. Mark Knoblauch and Dr. Jeff Konin join forces to teach us about publishing a book.
I am an AT, I Can't Publish a Book
This is pretty much the statement I said to Dr. Knoblauch when he suggested the topic.
But then he mentioned our adoption story. we now have experience with the system, emotions, training, rejections.
Sometimes publishing a book is only to have your story written down.
Others it is to entertain someone
Furthermore others are written for education.
Some of the discussion topics:
- Book idea conception and design (when/how to turn a thought into a book)
- Publishing process
- Getting a publisher and/or agent
- What is involved (writing, editing, formatting, cover design, marketing, obtaining reviews)
- Expenses involved for self-publishing (cover design, ISBN, etc.)
