Free self-publishing workshop (gotta love that!)

You've finished The Great Novel and dream of the day it goes from your dusty hard drive to the hands of hundreds of avid readers. (And I'm not talking about people you're actually related to.) 

Well, don't sit around waiting for a traditional publisher to come knocking. Why punish yourself? Do as I do and DIY. I now have eight self-published novels selling on Amazon and via Smashwords (Apple iPad, Kobo, Nook...) and am making a tidy profit from my favourite hobby, mystery writing. It couldn't be easier, really it couldn't.

Sound overwhelming?

Come along to my FREE workshop at the Northern Rivers Writers' Centre down in the heart of Byron Bay in Northern NSW, Australia, next Thursday May 14, from 5.30pm. I'll be sharing the secrets to getting your books online and discussing the opportunity to promote them at the upcoming Byron Bay Writers Festival in August.

Nowhere near Byron Bay?

Take heart, I spill quite a few of my self-publishing secrets in an earlier blog, below. Just scroll down and take a look.

Otherwise, get yourself to Byron next week; there's worse places to visit! For more info, go to the NRWC website or read on. I look forward to meeting you there.

Happy self-publishing,
