SELF PUBLISH ME – A Dialogue on Self-Publishing and Marketing Your Own Book in South Africa

Sat Sep 23, 09:30 - Sat Sep 23, 13:00
Standard Bank Incubator


Independently publishing a book in South Africa is an interesting phenomenon.
Since 2014 as, we’ve partnered with and assisted hundreds of authors to self-publish their books: celebrities, first time authors, prominent writers, pastors, historians and many others.
It brings us pleasure to bring #SelfPublishMe on the 23rd of September 2017. It is a workshop + dialogue among self-published authors – the aspiring are very much welcome – on how to better self-publish and market their books.
Thanks to Standard Bank Incubator for powering us up and thus it takes place at the Standard Bank Incubator in Rosebank. It is a free event. RSVP now. is a boutique publishing consultancy that assists independent authors produce (editing and proof reading), publish (layout design, ebook conversion and distribution to premium online stores such as Amazon, iBookstore, Kobo, Lulu) and market their works.
#SelfPublishMe will be facilitated by Bula Buka co-founder and four-time self-published author – Tiisetso Maloma.
Expect to have a dialogue with authors who are already doing it on their own.
N.B. Unfortunately this event isn’t for those looking for publishers to publish them. It is for those who want to do it on their own – and those doing it on their own – and seeking further insights on how to do it better.
