You’ve written a polished story or two or ten and you feel confident that it’s time to share your work with the world. You’ve heard about self-publishing, but is it the right fit for you, financially?

Writer’s Lab: Building a Profitable Indie Author Business, on Saturday, July 9, at 10am, online via Zoom.
