Helping Writers and Authors Navigate the Business of Book Publishing
Each Month Author and Publisher Rosemary Augustine hosts The Self Publishing Group via teleconference. Monthly calls are held on the 1st Saturday of each month (2nd Saturday on the months with a holiday). Join the Email List to be notified and ask your questions ahead of time or send a chat message while on the call. Cost to participate is $5 per month.
You will be directed to a payment screen upon registering for each monthly call. Maximum attendees for calls is 25 participants. However, we average about 10 participants each month. New comers will receive TeleConference Call Etiquette prior to their first call. After participating on a Saturday call, you will be invited to join our Private Facebook Group – but you must participate on a call to join us on Facebook.
About Your Facilitator – Rosemary Augustine
Rosemary Augustine self published her first book in 1995. Her publishing mentor was the late Dan Poynter who was the Godfather of self publishing and the author of over 100 books including The Self Publishing Manual. In the mid 1990s while living in Denver, Colorado, Rosemary was a frequent speaker at the annual Rocky Mountain Book Festival and Aspen Writer’s Conference, as well as a member of Colorado Independent Publishers Association. She became the President of Colorado Independent Publishers Association in the late 1990s. When Rosemary relocated to the east coast in 2001, there were no self publishing groups to speak of or even participate in. However, she kept writing and later formed Self Publishing for Writers Meet Up Group in Wayne, PA in 2012 – the same year she released her 3rd book 365 Days of Creative Writing. With that group, she helped over 50 members launch their books through her monthly support and ongoing inspiration as the Self Publishing for Writers MeetUp Organizer. In 2015, Rosemary relocated to Melbourne, Florida and handed off the Meet Up Group to another author. But within months, she was asked by many to continue her support of writers and authors, and provide her knowledge of self publishing to those who sought help in the navigation process of the publishing business. As a result, Rosemary began The Self Publishing Group in January 2016 using teleconferencing and webinars. Today, Rosemary has a total of 10 books she has written, published on four different platforms. She is knowledgeable in publishing using Ingram Spark, CreateSpace, Kindle, Nook and Smashwords. She continues to work out the bugs so she can share with others the ins and outs of the self publishing world. Rosemary makes her home in Melbourne, Florida with her kitties Oscar and Zora. Her famous feline and muse, Ziggy, although in kitty heaven, continues to be an inspiration. To learn more about how Rosemary got started as an author and publisher, listen to her Video Interview.
