April 7 - Self-Publishing Panel
Self-publishing has come a long way since the days of vanity publishing. Today, authors can publish e- books, print-on-demand books, or both. Many services provide easy routes to get your book to the public. Authors can be involved throughout the entire creative process, or they may decide to focus on the writing and hand over the whole project. Learn your options in this beginner’s workshop on self-publishing.
Dora Badger, a Detroit writer and editor, has self-published on Amazon.com, as well as other major online booksellers.
Sylvia Hubbard, founder of Motown Writers’ Network, has independently published over 30 books.
Michael Dwyer, freelance travel journalist, content provider and founder of the Rochester Writers’ Conference, will moderate the panel.
Registration is required. Call the Adult Reference desk at 248-246-3727 or visit ropl.org.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Royal Oak Public Library.

"The question is not 'Can you make a difference?' You already do make a difference.
It's just a matter of what kind of difference you want to make during your life on this planet."
– Julia Butterfly Hill
Hill is best known for living in a 180-foot (55 m)-tall, 1,000-year-old California Redwood tree for 738 days between December 10, 1997 to December 18, 1999. Hill lived in the tree, affectionately known as "Luna," to prevent loggers of the Pacific Lumber Company from cutting it down.
