Ins and Outs of Self-Publishing for Children webinar

October 18, 2018, 7:30 – 9:00 pm (Central)

If you’re thinking about self-publishing, we’ve got a great webinar for you! Join award-winning author, publisher, and publishing consultant N. L. Sharp as she shares tips and resources for self-publishing picture books and middle grade novels for readers at the elementary level (ages 6-12).


Sharp will address the differences between self-publishing companies, hybrid companies, and DIY publishing companies. She will talk about what exactly is involved in setting up your own DIY publishing company, and why you might choose to do that, rather than publish with a self-publishing or hybrid company. She’ll cover the advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing for kids, and she’ll go over ideas and suggestions for distributing and marketing your book to readers.


N.L. SharpNebraska author N. L. Sharp has been writing for children for more than 20 years. Her first book, Today I’m Going Fishing with My Dad, was published by Boyds Mills Press in 1993 and was a Nebraska Golden Sower nominee in 1995-1996. In 2003, Sharp created her own publishing company, Prairieland Press, to publish and market her books. Her debut book under that company, Effie’s Image, was released in 2005, and was a Nebraska Golden Sower state award nominee in 2007-2008. Her second book, The Flower Girl / The Ring Bear: A Flip-Over Book, was named a Nebraska Center for the Book Award winner for Cover Illustration and Design. Sharp’s first novel for middle grade readers, Keeping Captain, was released in February, 2016, and was named a Nebraska Center for the Book Award Winner by the Nebraska Library Commission in 2017.
