ABOUT THIS ONDEMAND WEBINAR

He'll also provide advice, tips and strategies for ensuring that your book receives the best treatment and the best opportunities for success, as well as what questions you should be asking. You'll learn what publishers don't want you to know, sometimes forget to do, or purposefully ignore; what a hybrid author is and why you should be one; and many more "dirty little secrets."

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

  • What questions you need to ask of your agent and/or publisher to ensure your book gets the right treatment
  • The main factors in determining the success or failure of your book
  • How self-publishing can help your long-term career goals and turn you into a “hybrid author”
