PrePare to Publish: Self Publishing a Picture Book with Mark Tuchman, August 18 at 6pm Eastern


Your text is edited and ready to go. Your illustrations are final and ready to go. But what are the next steps and how do you go from having all the pieces to holding a finished, printed book in your hands? This webinar is a walk-through of the design and art production process involved in preparing a picture book for upload to a self-publishing site.

The intent of this session is to demystify the process. Whether you aim to prepare the files yourself, or will be hiring a consultant or designer, knowing the steps involved will be beneficial in helping to get you across the finish line.

Join Mark Tuchman for this overview of self-publishing. Mark will also offer a Q&A.
