Publishing the Anthology: Colorado State of Mind

Colorado Springs Fiction Writer’s Group

October 22, 2016
3-6 pm

Fire Station 14, 1875 Dublin Blvd,
(Dublin & Academy)

If you live near Colorado Springs, stop by this Saturday for a book, a donut, and a free workshop.
During this session, CSFWG will be publishing its third anthology—Colorado State of Mind—featuring stories from its members themed around Colorado. You will see the actual process of uploading to Ingram Spark, who provides distribution to thousands of worldwide print retailers and over 60 on-line markets including Apple and Amazon.

We will discuss the entire publishing process, including:

• Author contracts                                    
• Editing                                                   
• Layout, front matter, Table of Contents
• Cover creation                                       
• ISBN numbers and bar codes                
• Cover price, percentages, and profit      
• Metadata, key words                              
• Uploading to a distributer (Ingram)       
• Print on demand vs. e-Books                 
• Distribution                                            
• Marketing                                               

We are honored to include a short story written by Colorado's own Carrie Vaughn, the New York Times best-selling author of the Kitty series.

The Colorado Springs Fiction Writer's Group is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that welcomes writers of all levels to improve their skills through peer critique groups, workshops, and retreats in a supportive setting. All meetings are free and open to the public.
