with James Dewar
Join Micro-Press Publisher James Dewar in an honest and thorough discussion about the pros and cons of self-publishing.

1) Part one: Book layout and printing tips for self-publishers

James will provide detailed hand-outs for all participants.
James Dewar is the publisher and editor of Piquant Press. In 2011 James and his partner Sue Reynolds launched Stone’s Throw Publications, designed specifically to help authors who need help during the publishing process finding quality editors, printers, graphic designers, layout experts and retail platforms. James enjoys educating new authors in the essential steps of self-publication and the many options available for author promotion. He can customize any project. The most important thing that James encourages authors to learn is how to read the fine print and retain the full copyright of their material.
