Presenters: 
Speaker: Jim Blanton, Senior Library Manager, Chesapeake Public Library
Speaker: Phyllis Floyd, Volunteer, Chesapeake Public Library
Description: 

The session will detail a yearlong endeavor at the Chesapeake Public Library on electronic publishing called Publish or Bust! A librarian and a local volunteer will chronicle their experiences writing a novel and exploring alternatives for publishing. The end goal will be a live how-to journey featuring daily blogs, tweets, and Facebook postings, the creation of an “inspiration room” in which their activities will be filmed, and successful publication and inclusion of their work in the library catalog. The experiment will culminate in the launch of a full-service, self-publishing resource area at the Central Library.
