Self-Publishing Course at Davitt College
Your book deserves to be published

Alex BlackwellWith Alex Blackwell, author, commercial printer, marketer and self-publishing professional.

Do you have an idea for a book? Do you have a manuscript and are uncertain what the next steps are in getting it into the hands of a reader? Are you an instructor or specialist and have been asked about further reading? Or would you like to produce a cookbook or family history as a Christmas gift for your family?

Alex Blackwell has worked his way through all of these scenarios. He has also been a book printer and has self-published several of his own fiction and non-fiction books.

This is a hands-on course where you will be walked through turning your own manuscript and into an actual printed book and into an e-book using your own laptop. By the end of the course you will have a copy of your book in your hands and be set up online to sell your book to the world.

Book publishing has changed radically in the past decade. Self-publishing, the alternative to the traditional route, was previously an expensive option. Short-run book printers required a minimum of 50 copies at significant cost per book or even much higher quantities which then created a storage dilemma. In either case, these books had to be sold or sent out one copy at a time, a process involving considerable time and expense on the author’s part.

With print-on-demand technology and online digital marketing, the up-front costs are no longer prohibitive. Getting a book published is now something everyone can achieve. Today one can upload digital files of a finished and formatted book at little or no cost. It is then listed on the likes of Amazon who sell one copy at a time without ever having to intervene. An e-store can also be posted where the author may sell the book directly. Review or gift copies of the title can be ordered from the supplier at very low costs. Books can also be produced in the same way locally in Louisburgh at Books@One on their Book Machine.

Alex has many years of experience in printing, having developed short-run book printing at the marketing and printing operation in which he was a partner in the United States. When print-on-demand was introduced, he embarked on a journey of writing, editing, designing and producing books that he and his wife co-wrote. Having published nine titles now in three genres and in both POD and eBook formats, he has distilled his knowledge into this instructional and highly useful course for aspiring authors who wish to self-publish.
