Sharon Lippincott and Boyd Lemon are experts at self-publishing memoirs and teaching others how to do it. They came together with Linda Joy Myers, Ph.D., founder of the National Association of Memoir Writers, for a roundtable discussion that originally aired on the web April 3, 2014. Dr. Myers gave me permission to link to the discussion for this post.
The discussion covers how to keep the cost of publishing low, what you can do yourself and when to get help, where to find help, trading services, working with editors, and much more.
Sharon is a lifewriting coach, teacher, and author of six nonfiction books, including The Heart and Craft of Lifestory Writing and The Albuquerque Years. Find her online at http://sharonlippincott.com/.
Boyd is a retired nationally known attorney and author of seven books of fiction and nonfiction, including Retirement: A Memoir and Guide, and Digging Deep: A Writer Uncovers His Marriages. Find him online at http://boydlemon-writer.com/.
