BUILDING BOOKS

Welcome to BUILDING BOOKS: PRINCIPLES OF PUBLISHING

Note: this class is being redeveloped due to a Papyrus Author update! I will release it as one video instead of weekly classes.

Interested in learning to publish a book from start to finish? Join me every Saturday and together we will be BUILDING BOOKS. The series will include both videos and text as I’ll be doing a lot of visual demonstration.

The first book will be a poetry book to celebrate National Poetry Month, ORDEAL IN FRENCH LIPSTICK by Amy Zoellers. That will be followed with a fiction book by me. Both books will be built from start to finish using all free software and art. This is simple work anyone can master.

The free programs we will be using:
