Florrie Binford Kichler, president of the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), has offered the Chicago Self-Publishing Group a generous discount on an event this weekend in Chicago called IBPA Publishing University. The event is Friday afternoon and all day Saturday at the Palmer House Hilton, 17 E Monroe.
The speaker lineup is pretty much a who's who of self-publishing and includes industry experts Guy Kawasaki (author of A.P.E: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur - How to Publish a Book), Joel Friedlander (you guys have heard me rave about his site, www.thebookdesigner.com), Mark Coker (CEO of Smashwords), Dan Poynter (the "grandfather of self-publishing"), Dominique Raccah (CEO of Sourcebooks publishing company), and many more.
The session topics cover pretty much all areas of self-publishing, and there seems to be a special emphasis on book marketing and publishing ebooks.
Please see below for information on the event, including the coupon code to use to get the registration discount. It's rare to see this many self-publishing legends under one roof, and it's a great chance to learn from and support one of the top self-publishing industry groups. Hope to see you there!
