PSWA One Author's Story to Self Publication

Kathy Bennett, retired from LAPD, told her story about self-publishing. She's the author of two books, A Dozen Deadly Roses and A Deadly Blessing.

She credits the time she belonged to RWA as her real training ground for learning how to write.

The golden rules for self-publishing are:

1. A good story
2. Professional Editor, which can cost from $5000 to $1000 dollars
3. Professional Book Cover, she paid $450
4. Electronic Formatter

She said, "You have one chance to make a good impression."
