Ever since I jumped into indie publishing 5 years ago (Yikes) I've always taken advantage of webinars on publishing, audiobooks, book clubs, etc. Today, I took a great one with Bublish Kathy Meis and Amy Collins of New Shelves Books. It was all about distribution for print books. Totally cool. Learned so much, especially with libraries and overall, what buyers want.
I think one of the benefits of webinars is the connections you make. I certainly learned about Where Writers Win long before they came to CAC. Today, a really cool thing happened in the chat during the Bublish webinar. As they read my question, Kathy Meis of Bublish said she loved my books. Amy Collins with long background in distribution said "I'll have to look her up." Squeeee. That was the audio. Then there were the chat comments. Wow. Making my day. ... See MoreSee Less
I wanted to share this with you all for two reasons.
First, the marketing style is filled with feelings that draw us in and offers a great behind the scenes look into the life and motivation of the author, which we as authors can learn much from.
And second, wow, what fabulous passion and art and 'THE BOOK' itself...what a journey.
Thanks Barbara Salvatore for finding and sharing this amazing post. ... See MoreSee Less
