“Self-publishing Boot Camp” in Sacramento, November 2

The Sacramento branch of the California Writer’s Club has put on some fine day-long seminars, including the one that got me started blogging (presumably, most people reading this think that’s a good thing).

The Club just announced a seminar in self-publishing to be held November 2.  I invite every one with the interest and geographical proximity to check out the flier: Boot Camp two-pager

I was planning to wait before recommending this event, but today I spotted these statistics on Kristin Lamb’s Blog.  In her August 30 post, “Digital Age Authors & The Ugly Truth About ‘The Good Old Days’ of Publishing,” Lamb says:

“As of 2004, only one out of NINE traditionally published authors ever saw a second book in print and 93% of all books published (traditional and non-traditional) sold less than a thousand copies (per Book Expo of America statistics).”

In other words, no path into print is easy, but now there’s a greater menu of choices than just a few years ago.  The CWC workshops I’ve attended have been excellent, and I’m planning on going to this one.

    Do you have another link to the information? I’m just getting error messages with the link above (might be my computer). Thanks!


  2. Thanks for letting me know. This new link should now open a pdf file. If it still doesn’t work, let me know and I’ll try something else.

    Oh, man! Timing is everything. I am leaving that morning for the Whole Novel Historical Workshop through the Highlights Foundation. I wish I could do both. Take good notes, please!


  4. Thank you for the information. I just may attend. Let me know if you want to meet up for coffee.
