Book publishing is undergoing a sea change. Come and participate in our dynamic and interactive three-part series covering all aspects of self-publishing, taught by front-line experts who have done it themselves Ð and succeeded. Attend one or all sessions of these in-depth seminars. The other events occur on April 6 and April 12.
Bookstores are closing; newspaper book reviews are almost gone; and online options can be overwhelming. What’s an author or publisher to do? Join the discussion with successful authors, who will share their stories of what has worked for them – from building relationships with independent bookstore buyers and distributors to using technology and social media in new ways; from digging into niche markets to selling directly to their fan base.
