Have you wondered about self-publishing?
How much does it cost, who can help you through the process, what are the
stages of production? This presentation by Efemia Chela and her team at Staging
Post will help to answer those questions.
Places are limited and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Members will
Staging Post was created in April 2015 by
the publishing house Jacana Media, the second-largest English-language
publisher in South Africa. It publishes up to 80 titles a year and has been in
the business since 1992. Jacana’s iconic slogan describes that “they publish
what they like”. At Staging Post
the slogan is “we publish what YOU like”.
Authors and illustrators remain in control, don’t give away their rights and
don’t rely on royalties. Via Staging Post authors and illustrators are able to
tap into both the excellent services provided by the in-house production team
and Jacana’s networks with the best professionals in book publishing. Under
this ‘assisted self-publishing’ model, writers and illustrators are supported through
the publishing process with all the invaluable advice and professional guidance
they need to produce the best possible version of your book.
