Mary Emma Allen’s Self-Publishing Adventures
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’s – When We Become the Parent to Our Parents
Quilting Book – The 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.
