Peggy Gaffney speaks on DIY Publishing

Are you a frustrated writer? Have you a great book you want published? Has the struggle to get it done your way discouraged you? Well, you can do it yourself. Peggy Gaffney, author of Do It Yourself Publishing Nonfiction In Your Spare Time will be teaching how to do just that at a workshop that is part of the Connecticut Authors and Publishers Association University on May 9, 2009 in Hartford.
Peggy, who is the author of six knitting books for dog lovers, knows how hard the business can be if you have a small niche market for your ideas. Publishers can’t afford to produce books that won’t sell in the millions, so if you have an idea that has a smaller audience, you might want to consider publishing the book yourself. It is not a difficult or expensive process and the best part is that you get to do it your way instead of giving away control to a publisher who might not feel the passion you have for your subject.
Those who might want to attend the event should go to the CAPA-U Blog and check it out. Applications are available on the blog.
