PS Pinchot-Swogger Publishing LLC, the publisher of NEWS On the Green, will present “By the Book: Tips on Self-publishing” at a Shenango Valley Chamber of Commerce Lunch and Learn program at noon May 9 at Butler County Community College’s LindenPointe Campus, 3182 Innovation Way, Hermitage.

Focus, realistic expectations and an organized approach go a long way to helping every would-be author realize their dream of publishing a book. In “By the Book: Tips for Self-publishing,” Joe Pinchot and Judi Swogger will talk about the important questions to answer and the preparatory steps you need to take to move ideas out of the ether, onto the page and into stores – brick-and-mortar and online – where readers can find them.

There is a $10 fee, which covers the lunch that will be provided. Tickets are available through Eventbrite or contact the chamber at

Late last year, PS Pinchot-Swogger Publishing published “A Clarencedale Year: 52 Ways to Live the Sweet Life” for Nancy Boldish Tusinac of Sharpsville.
