Publishing a Book – 558

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.)
