Deadline for the 2011 Contest is November 5, Noon, at the end of our Galaxy meeting.

Next meeting is Saturday after Labor Day weekend

Alice Clary, “Do’s & Don’ts of Self-Publishing”

September 10th, 10 AM to Noon

University Lutheran Church, 914 Elm Ave. (Park in back off of College Ave.)

Her given name is Alice Clary, her pen name is Alicia Dean and she edits as Ally Robertson, but the guest speaker for the first fall meeting of the Norman Galaxy of Writers is an accomplished, published writer by any name. 

Alicia Dean lives in Moore, Oklahoma, and is a published author of both suspense and paranormal. She has four novels, two novellas and a short story published through various venues. Her latest novel is her first attempt at self-publishing, and she has learned some do’s and don’ts through trial and error. She also edits for an online publishing company. 

The Trials, Tribulations and Successes of Self-Publishing

• The pros and cons of self-publishing, traditional publishing and small press publishing.

• Formatting and editing for Self-Publishing

• Cover art

• The steps to upload your work on the Kindle and Nook

• Pricing structure, marketing, etc

• Q&A

With such talent and practical experience on display our club simply must respond in large numbers, including interested guests and perspective new members.

This month we’ll again be meeting at the University Lutheran Church from 10 to noon.

See you there! 

—Keith Eaton, VP-Program
