Writing is its own reward, but having people read what you've created raises a good thing to an even higher level. To find an audience you need to get your work "out there," but in today's complex publishing environment it's difficult to know how best to go about doing that. This seminar will cover distribution for all paths to publication, including: self, small press, and big-five. In this free seminar well discuss: • ebook distribution venues • Subscription ebook services • Amazon exclusivity - pros and cons • ebooks and libraries • Audio book distribution • Bookstore distribution for printed books • Library distribution for printed books • Print on Demand verses Print Run Strategies • Book Distributors - what they do and how to work with them And of course there will be plenty of time for Q&A.
Goodreads is a social networking platform where readers catalog books they have read or want to read, as such it's the place where authors need to be. It was one of the key factors to Michael's success and in this session, well share what worked for us and how you can maximize using this important tool to build your author platform. In it we will discuss: • How to claim your author page, and maximize your profile • How to build an audience for books, even before they are released • How to use your most important marketing resource - giveaways. • How to effectively use goodreads groups • How to track your results Of course there will be plenty of time for Q&A. NOTE: There will be a second Meetup directly following this one which will be "Money Matters: The Economics of Self and Traditional Publishing" you are welcomed to attend them both.
