Seminar offered on electronic publishing

The writing, publishing, and reading world, is changing so quickly that things can feel “virtually” out of control.

That’s because the virtual landscape of the written word has opened up new ways of reading. It’s exciting, but for an author it can seem overwhelming.

Electronic Publishing, or ePUB, is the process by which books are published for download to a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

On Tuesday, November 26 at 7 p.m. the Nelson Public Library presents ePUB 101. Electronic Publishing expert Morty Mint takes writers through the brass tacks of this exciting new way to self-publish.

Mint will describe the landscape of the eBook Publishing industry: how it works, who the players are, what options are out there, and how to access resources through eBound, a non-profit division of the Association of Canadian Publishers.

Topics included in the presentation include digital asset management, eBook conversion in a variety of formats, print on demand, marketing and more.

ePUB 101 is a free workshop ideal for writers interested in ePublishing now or in the future.
