One thing I’ve heard from many authors in the past year is that writing a book is only half the battle. Then, you have to publish it. For those who choose to self-publish, formatting, designing and marketing your book becomes a giant, one-man (or one-woman) show.
Darby Jo Campbell knows this all too well. When the Windsor Township woman wanted to publish her children’s book, “A Sniff in the Park,” her experiences with publishers through her day job had proved she didn’t want to go the traditional route. So she started her own company, Darby Books.
“I knew enough of what to do to get my business established,” Campbell said in the summer of 2012. “But what I’m learning in marketing is interesting. That’s something I have no experience in.”
She’ll share her gained knowledge with other local authors through a self-publishing seminar at 6:30 p.m. April 16 at Glatfelter Memorial Library, 101 Glenview Road, Spring Grove.
Campbell will focus on the three different roads that you can take for self-publishing, she said. “One of my focuses is going to be what not to do, because there are so many people out there taking advantage,” she added.
The session, which cost $10, includes a copy of Campbell’s book, “A Sniff in the Park.” Library staff ask that participants register before April 12, when a decision will be made on whether to move forward based on community interest.
