How to self-publish a book


Stacey Atkinson is a freelance writer and editor based in Ottawa. In 2012, she began Mirror Image Publishing as a way to self-publish her first novel, Stuck. She learned so much along the way, especially when it came to publishing and marketing a book, that she began offering advice and services to other independent authors. In 2016, she self-published her second novel, Letters from Labrador.

After self-publishing two books herself and working primarily as an editor of self-published fiction and nonfiction, Stacey took what she had learned and developed an online course on how to publish a book. The course outlines a ten-step process to self-publishing, including how to write, edit, design, print, distribute, market, and budget for a book.

At this event, Stacey will explain to us her ten-step process and answer your questions about self-publishing. She'll also be asking people to share their own self-publishing stories.
