Self-Publishing Workshop

Crowell Public Library

1890 Huntington Drive, CA, CA 91108

11:00am to 2:30pm

. As part of the Friends of Crowell Public Library’s Meet the Authors series back in February, local author Christopher Lynch proved a dynamic and highly likeable speaker when he gave a talk on his latest novel, One-Eyed Jack (which has since been optioned for a feature-length film). He has also self-published many short stories and is back this Fall to present a workshop on the ins and outs of self-publishing. This free workshop will include the pros and cons of doing it yourself versus traditional publishing, editing, formatting the manuscript as an e-book or print on demand, cover design, ISBNs and barcodes, costs of services, pricing, sales channels, promotion, and a live step-by-step demonstration of an e-book being uploaded and created on Amazon.

With an extensive background in non-fiction, Chris has written for numerous local and national publications. He recently wrote and published an authorized biography of the iconic child actor Ken Osmond, (Eddie Haskell from the TV series Leave it to Beaver) Eddie: The Life and Times of America's Preeminent Bad Boy. When he’s not writing, Christopher enjoys mountain climbing and has reached the summits of Mount Whitney, Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, and most recently, completed a trek to Mount Everest Base Camp. He once trained and led eleven blind hikers to the summit of 10,000 ft. Mount Baldy, the highest point in Los Angeles County, and the third highest point in Southern California. A documentary film is being made of this adventure. Chris is a member of Sisters in Crime Los Angeles chapter, as well as Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn about self-publishing from a true pro on Saturday, September 12 at 11:00 a.m. in the Library’s Barth Community Room. The authors will keep coming this Fall, thanks to the Friends of Crowell Public Library.
