Patricia La Barbera Lecture

On Feb. 23 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Patricia La Barbera will lecture at the Selby Library on self-publishing. The program will include details about CreateSpace and Kindle. She recently revised and republished her mystery novella, and she'll share information about the process. Patricia will also show several pages of revisions, and discuss the book's first sentence, first paragraph, and first page regarding their vital elements. She'll point out important considerations for a cover choice. This presentation will encourage self-publishing by showing it's an achievable goal. From 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., attendees will have the opportunity to read excerpts from their genre manuscripts. This is a free lecture, and guests are welcome.
