In our three previous indie publishing classes, the instructors have focused on getting a book uploaded, published, and out in the world. But before you do all that, exactly how do you prepare to handle the nitty gritty business aspects associated with publishing? We’ll cover buying ISBNs, Library of Congress copyrights, creating an LLC, managing your time and taxes, and more. You’ll build your own to-do list, and begin an annual budget to support your chosen publishing goals. Whether you’re determined to produce one book or be a publishing entrepreneur, award-winning indie author Karen A. Chase will outline the options for how to reduce your losses and stressors, and better understand your profits.
