PRLog - Sep. 7, 2011 - REDDING, Calif. -- REDDING, CA
Editors Nancy and Biff Barnes of Stories To Tell will offer free consultations to authors at the Central Coast Book and Author Festival in San Luis Obispo, California, Sunday, September 18.
Authors are bypassing traditional publishing and self publishing books in record numbers. These DIY writers must learn how to edit and format their manuscripts, how to hire a book designer, and how to sell their books online.
“Bring us your draft manuscript, finished or unfinished,”
The Festival, which features 57 authors and exhibitors, runs from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in San Luis Obispo’s Mission Square. Admission is free.
Stories To Tell, an author services firm founded by Barnes, provides manuscript evaluation, editing, book design and publishing consulting services to authors seeking either limited or commercial distribution for their books.
“Not all publishers or printers are the same,” said Barnes. “We help authors choose the best publisher for their books, so that they don’t pay for services they don’t need. We also help them prepare their manuscript for submission and make sure their files will meet the publisher’s specifications.”
