Carole London, owner of Lifetime Chronicle Press and a Montrose, Colorado, local who specializes in helping local authors through the “daunting process of self-publishing,” collaborated with Meg Nagel of the Montrose Public Library to organize a two-Saturday workshop to celebrate March as Small Press Month.

The workshop was filled to capacity and beyond both Saturdays. Carole spoke on the first Saturday about writing and self publishing and Betty McKinney spoke about submitting manuscripts.

This last Saturday, the second of the event, once again found overflow crowds. I spoke about marketing on the Internet, and have put my presentation here. This was followed by a panel discussion (I was on the panel), and the afternoon saw a reading by 20 local authors (including me) and the opportunity to sell books (I sold 16). I also donated a copy each of Broom 1 and Broom 2 to the Montrose Public Library, so stop by and check one out!

My many thanks to Carole for organizing the event!
