Fall 2013 Publishing Conference Roundup

I go to conferences and workshops so you don’t have to! I love sharing what I learn, but instead of talking to everyone individually, I recorded the 16 minute video below.

This video will give you great information on:

  • Amazon – tips on book descriptions, categories, and how to keep your book showing up in search
  • Finding readers – both online and in-person, and the questions you need to ask them
  • Ebook creation tools – online writing and distribution tools that you can use right now
  • Free resources – links to websites, articles and handouts from the conferences with even more information

Conferences and Links

BAIPA – The Bay Area Independent Publishing Association website. We meet monthly in the North Bay.

Penny Sanseveiri – based in San Diego, Penny speaks widely on Amazon and book marketing for authors. Here is an excellent article by Penny with more Amazon advice.

SF Writing for Change Conference – Free handouts from all presenters are available for download here.

Books in Browsers IV – the two presentations I talk about below are by Hugh McGuire of Pressbooks and Peter Armstrong of Leanpub. One correction to my video: Pressbooks is free to use and create ebooks. For $10 you can get their watermark removed from the ebook files they create.

After watching the video, if you want to know more about applying these tips to your own books and platforms, just click here to schedule a 20 minute phone or Skype session with me for only $20! That’s way below my normal rate, but it’s worth it to make sure you get the most out of this great information. Sign Up Now!
