Authors to speak on self-publishing at Linfield College October 20 at 7:30 p.m.

Stephen W. Long’s novel was funded through a crowd-funding community on Kickstarter.

McMINNVILLE – A panel of self-published authors will talk about their projects on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 7:30 p.m. in the Austin Reading Room in the Jereld R. Nicholson Library at Linfield College.

The authors will discuss dos and don’ts of self-publishing, once a tiny niche in the publishing world, that has become a legitimate alternative for many writers. Options for self-publishing authors include employing the services of a vanity press, engaging an editor, finding a graphic designer to prepare book pages or doing the entire thing on their own. The panel will explore issues involved in the process and the ways to get self-published, as well as subjects such as distribution, marketing, publicity, promotion and social media. The panel includes Ellie Gunn, Karen Huntsberger and Randy Stapilus, along with moderators Stephen W. Long and Frank Lisciandro.

The event is free and open to the public and sponsored by Third Street Books, McMinnville Public Library Linfield and Nicholson Library. For more information, contact Susan Barnes Whyte at 503-883-2517 or
