Navigating the Steps to Publish Your Book with Fabi Preslar

August 29, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Steps to publish your book with Fabi Preslar

The Experience

In this joint metaphor.ink and Consciousness Cafe presentation, we will explore the many steps
between the points where you, as an author, produce the first complete draft of
your manuscript and the moment you hold your published book in your hands. Aspects of each
step–obvious and subtle–can either help or hinder your audience’s interest in your work.
Knowing how to approach each one helps ensure that your book best represents your life
experiences and builds credibility for the message you want to communicate.

This is why it is important to have an experienced editing and publishing team helping you, one
that knows how to work with you to craft a high-quality manuscript, design well-formatted
pages, and create a cover to help sell your book and achieve your goals. Your
“team” can take many forms, from you performing all the roles yourself to having professional
editors and publishers assist you through the entire process. There are a variety of publishing
options between them, which will vary depending on your budget, audience, and the
type of book (i.e., printed, audio, or digital) you want to produce.

Fabi Presslar, our guest for this meeting, will share the steps involved in the publishing process
and discuss which options contribute the most to an audience’s favorable reception of your
printed work. She will also provide an updated mindset to have as you create and launch
yourlaunch your book.
