Kalk Bay Books & Moonshine Media
invite would-be authors to a publishing workshop
Dominique le Roux & Ann Donald
Help! I’ve Got a Book in Me
Do you have a special story or gift of knowledge to share?
Perhaps you’ve been somewhere amazing or done something incredible…
Perhaps your life has brought you experiences from which others can learn…
Maybe your wild imagination has conjured a fantasy that would entertain and delight…
You might have written it all down already, or perhaps you’re still
wondering whether it’s even worth it.
What to do next?
How do you send your manuscript or idea to a publisher? (And, if so, which one?)
What can you expect from them?
What are your self-publishing options?
What’s this business of independent publishing?
Actually, hang on… what’s the business of this whole thing altogether? Is there money?
What’s in it for whom?
You have questions. Dominique le Roux and Ann Donald have answers and suggestions.
Join us for an evening of publishing talk in which we’ll map out the options for you as a
South African author-to-be.
You’ll leave knowing:
• The pros and cons of traditional vs independent publishing
• How to pitch your book to a publisher
• How to create and sell an ebook (and where Apple, Amazon and Kindle fit into the whole story)
• What really sells
• How others like you have done it.
