This Saturday, publishing executive Greg Sharp will lead Center for Lifelong Learning course "Successful Self-Publishing — Strategies and Tactics to Avoid Pitfalls," a one-day workshop for writers, artists and photographers to grasp an overview of the steps involved in self-publishing a book.

Whether you are ready to go to press, or need help developing a book idea, this class is for you.

The class will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Room 31 of the Santa Barbara Schott Campus. The cost is $95. Click here to register. For more information, email [email protected].

Sharp lends his 30-plus years of expertise to help authors bring their ideas to fruition and navigate the publishing process.

“The publishing process can be a confusing one — there are many, many different levels," said Sharp, publisher and president at Sea Hill Press. “Understanding the process is half of the job.”

His one-day class will cover everything from manuscript preparation to social media marketing, and will give students a solid understanding of the many levels involved in self-publishing. Other topics of discussion include cover design, interior layout, digital and traditional printing, e-books, book sales, marketing, publicity and distribution.

Authors of all levels of experience are invited to attend "Successful Self-Publishing — Strategies and Tactics to Avoid Pitfalls" to explore the many decisions the will face on their endeavor to self-publish a book successfully.

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.
