Speaker info: Windy City Publishers is a boutique hybrid publishing company located in the Chicagoland area. They are a digital organization that uses the latest technology to manage the publishing process for authors not only in the USA but globally as well. Their authors are actively involved with every step and dictate the pace in which the process moves. We support the independent author by offering all the services of traditional publishing houses (editing, marketing, and distribution), yet we are author-funded like a self-publisher, allowing writers to retain the rights of their work, receive higher royalties, and maintain control over their publishing process.
