Do you want to self-publish, but don't know how to start?

Join New Zealand's leading self-publishing experts, podcasters and full-time authors, "the SPA Girls", for a one-day workshop that will teach you how to take your precious manuscript from polished to published!

What we’ll teach you:
- Pre-production preparation including finding an editor, choosing the right cover, writing a compelling book blurb, identifying your right readers
- Formatting your book for publishing in all ebook and print formats
- Publish your book to a global audience. We’ll teach you how to upload your book to the key online retailers for an international readership including Amazon, Createspace, Kobo, iBooks and Nook
- Marketing 101: including price strategy, social media, your author platform and the successful author mindset

Learn from four successful indie authors with more than sixty books published!

Wendy Vella, Trudi Jaye, Cheryl Phipps and Shar Barratt are four Kiwi full-time authors successfully self-publishing fiction in the romance, urban fantasy, young adult and mystery genres. In addition, for more than two years, they’ve hosted the popular Self Publishing Authors Podcast (aka the SPA Girls Podcast) for beginning self-publishers—one of the top globally-downloaded podcasts for indies.
