The presentation will examine the technical issues involved with producing both eBooks and Audio Books, exploring the topics and requirements necessary to a professional result. Brian has assembled the required specifications and software — all of it freeware — that authors will need to produce electronic versions of their stories, novels, and poetry.
Participants — a minimum of four and a maximum of twenty — will receive handouts and Internet links for all stages of the process.
Register and pay for the event through SOMOS at www.somostaos.org or by calling 575-758-0081.
The cost is $20 for SOMOS members, $25 for non-members.
