In his informative seminar, "Strategies for Self-Publishing to the Global Market", Keith Ogorek, self-published author and SVP of marketing at Author Solutions will clearly explain the three different publishing options for authors today and the four different paths you can pursue to get your book into the hands of readers. You will learn:

  • Advantages and drawbacks to each publishing path
  • Key questions you should ask yourself before you publish
