Pre-register for the workshop here and you will be automatically entered in a raffle to win a copy of Kathy Morikawa's (aka Wilhelmina Penn) book, "Self-Publishing from Japan: A Step-by-Step Guide"
Do you have a book you would like to publish: textbook, non-fiction, or a novel? This workshop and Q&A session (not a speech) is for those considering self-publishing in any form. Please come prepared to ask plenty of questions, either general or pertaining to your own specific book project if you like. For the first part of the workshop (about 20 minutes), Penn will introduce a one-page set of questions to help you consider your publishing options. Then the session will be opened up for Q&A and discussion. For those seriously considering self-publishing, it is recommended you read Penn’s book ahead of time.
