From Zero to Nine Million Copies Sold: An Insider Peek into the Publishing Industry
Join bestselling author Marianne Richmond on Friday, July 8 from 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. in the Orchestra Hall to learn about the ins and outs of writing a book and getting it published.
Many people want to write and publish a book. And yet, the publishing industry remains a mystery. Do I need an agent? Should I self-publish or seek a traditional publisher? How does a book go from idea to bookshelf? Who decides which books get seen? How do I make and sell books myself? In 1991, Richmond wrote, illustrated and self-published her first book. Two decades later, she has sold nine million copies of her 70+ books with front-row knowledge of how exactly it’s done. With self-publishing on the rise, too, there are even more ways to get your book from idea to market. Come learn from Richmond, a self-made publishing success story.
