Technology has made self-publishing easier. Unfortunately, this ease of publishing has opened up the industry to some ruthless operators.

Consumer psychology consultant, columnist and author Glennys Marsdon is passionate about making sure vulnerable consumers do not get taken advantage of. During her time on a consumer protection board she became aware of several scams in the self-publishing area. These insights plus her own 10 year experience in self-publishing forms the basis of this workshop. This is not a workshop about the nuts and bolts technical aspects of self-publishing. Instead participants will come away with an understanding of:

  • Do you have the personality for self-publishing?
  • The benefits of self-publishing
  • Tips to maximise the benefits
  • The pitfalls of self-publishing
  • Tips to avoid scams and other costly mistakes
  • Case studies of successes

There will be time to ask specific questions. 

Cost: $38.00 for members, $48.00 for non-members.
