Self-Publishing in the 21st Century


The workshop will be held on Jan. 26th, 2019, 1-4 p.m.
at the San Juan Island Public Library

(Download the event flier in .PDF format)

The workshop is being organized by book publisher and designer W. Bruce Conway. Bruce will give a 30 minute talk on the nuts and bolts of self-publishing, and a look into the future of self-publishing.

There will be a panel of self-publishers attending to share their success stories and answer questions.

Over 100 authors and writers attended the first workshop,
and we expect this workshop to be well attended as well.


WBC Design offers a variety of one-on-one support services for writers, authors and self-publishers. We have extensive experience with Amazon.com/Kindle Direct Publishing, Lightning Source/Ingram Spark, and other print-on-demand (P.O.D.) publishing houses.

Bruce is an award-winning designer, an Adobe Creative Suite expert (PhotoShop, InDesign, Illustrator, and Dreamweaver), and is also a whiz with PowerPoint presentations.

If you are looking for that special book designer—someone who is sharp, talented, and easy to work with—a designer who thinks outside of the box... look no further.

In a career spanning twenty-five years, Bruce has designed and published so many books, he has earned the nickname: Literary Midwife
