Creating Your Own Ebook (SEFLIN)

This two-part online class will be held on June 5 and 12, 2013 from 2:00 – 3:00 pm. Students must attend both sessions.

The eBook format gives everybody the opportunity to become their own publisher. With this two-part class,  we will go from creation to final product – providing participants with the options libraries and local authors will have to publish their own work.

The classes will focus on:

  • The growing trends in publishing and the movement toward self-publishing
  • Understanding formats and DRM issues
  • Creating covers and cover art
  • Frequent issues and the fixes
  • How to use Kindle Publishing and Calibre to create your ebook
  • Options authors and libraries have for distributing and selling their ebook

Between classes, participants will be asked to work on creating their ebook from personally created content and/or open source information.
