Self-Publishing Workshop - Register Now!

The Writers League of Texas has asked me to teach a one day workshop on self-publishing on October 1, 2011 at St. Edward's University.  I'm so excited to help guide writers through the sometimes difficult waters of self-publication to create their own long-term plans to find success.  My goal is for each attendee to have a detailed action plan when they leave the workshop.

This is a one day workshop and it does have a fee.

Here is the class information as it is posted on the Writers League of Texas Website:

Self Publishing: How to Do it Right with Rhiannon Frater

Updated Workshop Description
Every day the writing world takes notice of a new self-publishing success story. Today’s writer is empowered by the new media and has many options they can utilize to get their book into the hands of readers. This class will help writers create their own success with a comprehensive look on how self-publishing works from the very first step of honing a novel for publication to how to distribute the finished book to the masses. The class will not only provide an overview of the self-publishing process, but will concentrate on creating a publishing plan for each student.

  • Determine the cost of doing it yourself and how to get the most bang for your buck
  • Define your own success and make it happen
