Three Facts and One Lie About Independently Publishing

Presented by Becky Gehrisch

Are you a writer or illustrator who has wondered about pursuing non-traditional publishing? Becky will discuss her road-to-publication story for Escape to Play–a book that was seven years in the making. From creating her own LLC to launching a successful Kickstarter pre-order campaign, working with editors and designers to producing, storing, and shipping 1000 books, Becky learned a ton about what it takes to blaze your own trail in the publishing world. She’ll share the trials and triumphs of her journey, as well as discuss important topics that all creators considering independent publishing should be aware of.


Becky Gehrisch is a writer, illustrator, and entrepreneur. Her debut picture book, Escape to Play, launched in 2021. Between picture book projects, she works as a portrait artist and manages her new publishing company, Bookling Media LLC. When she is not creating art, she speaks at schools, bookstores and other venues. She is living her childhood dream by creating art and picture books as an adult.
