Peter Davidson, an experienced author whose works have been
published by McGraw-Hill Book Company, Perigee/Putnam Publishers,
Haworth Press and others, is returning to Southeast Community
College to conduct his popular one-day seminar titled "How to Get
Your Book Published."
The workshop takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, July 16,
at SCC's Continuing Education Center, 301 S.
68th St. Place, Lincoln. Cost is $49 per person and
includes all materials. Participants are on their own for a
one-hour lunch. To register, call 402-437-2700.
In his workshop, Davidson describes the three possible ways to
get a book published: through traditional publishing, vanity
publishing, or self-publishing. Potential advantages and
disadvantages of each method will be explored. However, because of
the difficulties of finding a traditional publisher, the high costs
of vanity publishing and the rising popularity of self-publishing,
this seminar will emphasize the self-publishing process.
This seminar is for anyone writing a book of fiction or
nonfiction, personal experience, family history, children's picture
book, poetry, religious works, educational materials or other
Topics include copyrighting, literary agents, possible costs,
income potential, and marketing strategies. At the end of the
seminar, participants should be able to make an informed decision
of how to proceed to get a book published through one of the three
possible book publishing methods.
Davidson has authored 24 books and is a leading publishing
industry consultant. He has presented more than 600 writer's
seminars and has appeared on more than 85 radio and television
programs nationwide. The trademark of Davidson's seminars is that
they are practical. Participants will receive a great deal of
information that they can actually put into practice.
