IPAC presents John Breeze, book shepherd
You have many choices to make before you send your manuscript to the printer, to Amazon, or some other service.
There is no one right way to get ready. This presentation is not about how to make the journey perfect. But it is about you helping you to be being fully aware of the choices that you are making along the way so that you can embrace those that are relevant to you, to your book, to your audience and to their reading habits.
The presenter, John Breeze, is a long–time IPAC member who has worked on more than 60 book publications over the past 16 years, as designer, editor, and on occasions book producer. He will be sharing his experiences of supporting authors in bringing their books into the world as printed publications.
The presentation will be at least partially interactive. It’s not just about telling you what to do, it’s also taking the opportunity to invite participants to share their own experiences: the good, the bad, and the ugly. By the end of the morning you should be in a position to make your own decisions for your own publication with confidence and purpose.
More about IPAC Meetings
As always, you will have a chance to meet and talk with other authors and self-publishers. Our members tell us over and over how much this has helped them along the writing and publishing journey.
We meet from 8:30 until noon on the last Saturday, September through November and January through May or June. The meeting fee is $20 for members and $25 for non-members (cash or cheques only), payable at the beginning of the meeting. A full breakfast is included in the fee (the meal cannot be deducted from meeting fees because our room rental is based on the number of attendees).
Location: Danish Canadian Club, 727 – 11th Avenue S.W. Lots of free parking in the club parking lot, on the west side of the building. Enter through the Club doors on the west side of the building and watch for directions, or check with Club staff.
