Central Library - The Quest(ion) of Self-Publishing with Nina Alvarez

See All Events

5/4/2013 at 2:00 PM to 5/4/2013 at 3:30 PM


Self-Publishing is a highly personal endeavor. This talk will offer you a quest map, a “lay of the land,” orienting you to the current landscape of self-publishing,  helping you assess your own styles and strategies, and offering specific examples of how others have maneuvered successfully or unsuccessfully through their own quests.

We will discuss marketing and author platform editing, social media, eBooks vs. Print-on-Demand vs. Printing, and how to create an internal compass that will keep you oriented, informed and inspired along your journey.

Nina Alvarez is a writing coach, editor, and self-publishing consultant through her company Dream Your Book literary services in Rochester.  She is also an instructor at Writers & Books, where she offers workshops on self-publishing and writing.
