Book Publishing Options Today: What's Right for You? OnDemand Webinar
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Want to write a book? Here's some good news: Plenty of books are being published. In 2010 alone, traditional publishers churned out more than 310,000 books while nontraditional publishers (including print-on-demand ("POD") companies) produced another 2,776,260 more titles.
Today's authors have more publishing options than ever before—but how do you decide what's right for you? Why should you consider a traditional publisher, and how do you go about it? What are the pros and cons of POD publishing, and how does it differ from self-publishing? And what about ebooks, the fastest-growing publishing segment today?
As each writer is taking a different individual publishing journey depending on their book, subject matter and author platform, we must realize that one size no longer fits all. This program will teach everything you need to know about your book publishing options today, so you are prepared to undertake the best course of action to get your work out there and read. This session is presented by Kelly James-Enger, author of books including Goodbye Byline, Hello Big Bucks: The Writer's Guide to Making More Money Ghostwriting and Coauthoring Books.
