Your manuscript is ready to become a book, so now what? You know there are multiple paths to publishing, so how do you approach your options? Traditional barriers to publishing are higher than they’re ever been, and there are myriad nontraditional publishing solutions, from DIY self-publishing to hybrid presses. In this presentation, publishing expert and publisher Brooke Warner explains the changing publishing landscape, and why the majority of authors today are becoming successful independently published authors—whether they initially pursue traditional publishing or not. This conversation will cover what it takes not only to green-light your own book, equipping you with a much-needed understanding of the most popular publishing platforms, but also what you need to know to help your book reach its readers and to succeed as an indie or hybrid author.
