Join award-winning author Kathy Izard as she discusses everything you need to know about self-publishing and evaluating potential hybrid/partner publishers. In this workshop, Kathy will tell you about her experience with publish three ways and answer questions on everything you need to know from buying your own ISBN number to finding help designing your book.
