What is EPA?

The Everything Publishing Academy is a community where fellow aspiring authors and self-publishers can build connections with fellow authors, publishers, editors and illustrators. As well as step-by-step training videos by renowned publisher Karen McDermott. Karen has published 30o books in her 1o years of publishing and owns 3 of her own publishing presses. She started the Everything Publishing Academy as she felt that everyone has a story that deserves to be heard and I shouldn't have to just sit catching dust simply because a publisher didn't think it was the right fit. This was the case with her first novel 'The Visitor' which ultimately led Karen into her career in publishing.
