Here’s My Manuscript. Now What?

Face The Book TV Re-Launch Celebration!

Re-Launch Celebration – Face The Book TV returns! Panelists include  is Eddie Vincent, president of Independent Publishers of New England and Shawn Anderson, president of the League of Vermont Writers.

Independent publishing is not for the faint of heart – although access to technology has demolished the stranglehold of the traditional publishing “gatekeepers,” you will have to acquire the skills, invest the time, or hire the talent (or all three) required to professionally publish and effectively distribute your book. In this re-launch of our Face The Book TV show, we continue to focus on the how-to of publishing, rather than the writing process (we’ll leave that up to you!). In each episode, experts will lay out in detail the individual elements crucial to producing a book indistinguishable from a front-list title by a major publisher. You can do it!

So, where to start? Tune in to our livestreams to ask questions in real time, or post your comments afterwards on YouTube or Facebook. Following the show, audio will be posted to your favorite podcast app for your listening convenience!

Subscribe to the livestream and podcast on YouTube or on Apple, Spotify, Google, and all major audio podcast apps. Face The Book TV (TM) was first produced at ACMi starting in 2008.
