This is one of the most exciting times to be an author, but also one
of the most confusing because there are more paths and opportunities
to get published. So it is more important than ever for authors to be
informed and choose the best publishing option based on their goals,
skills, patience, and budget.
In his informative seminar, "Strategies for Self-Publishing to
the Global Market", Keith Ogorek, self-published author and SVP

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
- 7 secrets of successful self-published authors
- Plus much more!
If you have a manuscript you want to publish, or know someone who does,
you must attend this Special Speaker Event to hear from one the leading
experts in the global self publishing marketplace.
