March Writing Lab
To Self-Publish - Or Not!
Guest Speaker: Sherry Halperin
Ms. Halperin has consistently worked on projects in the arts from distributing feature films, agenting actors, directing stage productions and working on hundreds of hours of network and cable television as a writer, producer and director. Sherry wrote Domingo, an ABC children’s series, for three seasons and went on to work for Dick Clark and Norman Lear. A few years back she produced world music concerts and ballets all over the United States in venues such as Lincoln Center and UCLA's Royce Hall and was a producer on the award-winning feature film, ADOPT A SAILOR starring Bebe Neuwirth, Peter Coyote and Ethan Peck.
Her last book, Recue Me, He’s Wearing A Moose Hat, published by Seal Press/Perseus, has garnered praise from The London Times, Chicago Tribune and Newsweek, among scores of other print media. It has appeared on several best seller lists and was optioned for a feature film by Oscar nominee writer/director Frank Darabont.
Her current book, Just Call Me Lady, has just been released in paperback and e-book formats and will shortly be out on Audible.
The process of how we choose to get our book out into the world is bumpy and quite overwhelming.
Everyone has a story to tell. But how you get it delivered to your audience is a journey in itself. I’ve had the experience of working with a major publishing house on a book I wrote. I received an advance and the book was optioned for a feature film. And, more recently, I decided to publish a novel on my own – which I had sworn I never would do. What does it take to self-publish a book? I’ve learned so many ins and outs and can’t wait to share them with you. Let’s discuss and create realistic ways to have your story read. It doesn’t require tons of money if you do it right. But it does require time, creativity and a keen eye, traits I’m sure you have.
