Getting Creative with Kal Barteski: A Self-Publishing Success Story

by - February 12, 2014

I dream of being published. I dream of rows and rows of books with my name on the spine.

And now, with print-on-demand companies sprouting up around the globe, that dream can be a reality even if a 'real publisher' won't bat an eye at me.

In the little research I've done I know there are great options out there that can see my dreams to reality should I decide to take that path.

If and when I do take the self-publishing plunge I'll be sure to share all the dirty details with you but until then, take a look at Blurb, one of the options I'm looking into for the filling of future shelves!

Blurb author Kal Barteski is a maker extraordinaire whose creativity knows no bounds. She’s a working designer, painter, storyteller, book creator, TEDx speaker, and calligrapher who can now add “video star” to her resumé with the first of Blurb's Canadian book-maker profiles. Watch the first installment in their Canadian Author video series with a wild look at Kal’s creativity. You just might be inspired to make your own book with Blurb. {See the video - get inspired}
