Self-Publishing Package

Self-Publishing Classes & Events

Are you in our neck of the woods? Join us for our monthly self-publishing classes and Author Support Groups that are held twice a month in our classroom in Roswell, Georgia. We occasional hold other self-publishing related events and classes, so be sure to check back for future upcoming events.

Author Support Group & Classes

Our author support groups are a great way to meet and network with other local authors and to learn all about the world of self-publishing. Our regular groups are held on the second Wednesday of each month at our classroom in Roswell, Georgia.

We will also occasionally hold more in-depth self-publishing classes.

Author Support Group Format

  • Every attendee will have a few minutes to introduce themselves and either ask questions to the group or share news and information. Questions that will take a long time to discuss will be tabled until the last part of the meeting so that we stay on track.
  • We will then have a round-table discussion on a specific topic lead my Kimberly Martin or by a guest speaker. Typical topics of discussion include writing tips, motivation and methods, book marketing, author platforms, social media, the self-publishing process, and book design. One main topic will be presented for discussion each month.
  • The last segment will be to discuss any questions presented in the first part, network with one another, and to speak directly with Kimberly about self-publishing.
