Cornelia will talk about her experience publishing her book, “Stepping Stones”, and will address: why talk about books if people don’t read anymore?; what is a book, and why is it worth publishing and keeping?; how a book is published by a publisher; self-publishing:  Commercial companies vs. doing it yourself; about doing it yourself; the manuscript; editing; copy editing; design; important details; the cover and more; the printer.
