Local author to hold book-publishing workshop in Aiea

Advertiser Staff

'Aiea Public Library will next month host "How to Get Your Book Published," a free workshop by local author and book consultant Rich Budnick.

At the workshop, set for 7 p.m. Aug. 2, Budnick will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of self–publishing, how to earn a profit, how to find a printer and distributor, how to get your book into book stores, and how to obtain the various forms that you will need.

Budnick is the author of "Hawaii's Forgotten History," "Stolen Kingdom," "Hawaiian Street Names" and other books of local interest. In addition, he is the founder of the Honolulu Writers Conference.

This one–hour workshop is suitable for teens through adults, and will be held in the meeting room.

Call the library as soon as possible if a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is needed.
