Mary Emma Allen’s Self-Publishing Adventures

by Mary Emma Allen on July 5th, 2008


When I mentioned, in a previous post, that I’ve been involved in self-publishing, Anne Wayman, of A Golden Pencil, asked me to share my experiences about MEA Productiions.

Here is a brief overview and I’ll go into detail about each in future posts.

Manuals – My first self-publishing venture consisted of manuals to accompany (or purchase separately) the writing workshops I taught at conferences and the local university. I made outline hand-outs of my 3-hour workshops (which later I turned into online classes), but soon found students wanted something more extensive and would pay for them.

So I printed master copies and took them to the local photocopy shop for multiple copies. Then I put them in binders.

Anthology of Children’s Stories - Tales of Adventure & Discovery

Coloring Book to accompany Tales

Book About Alzheimer’sWhen We Become the Parent to Our Parents

Quilting BookThe Magic of Patchwork

Works in Progress:

Picture books - Sarah Jane’s Daring Deed & William Mathewson, the Original Buffalo Bill

Middle Reader Novel - Papa Goes to War

In further posts, I shall each in more detail.

If you have self-published and would like to share, either do so in the comments or contact me about writing a guest post.
