Book Publicity 101 Slides




Many Thanks to Robin Cutler for Sharing her Spark with PWSD

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Robin Cutler, the brains and brawn behind independent publishing and distributing powerhouse IngramSpark, gave an enlightening presentation this past weekend. From explaining how Ingram was able to merge their traditional publishing distribution with the ever expanding worlds of independent publishing and print on demand titles, to best practices with ISBNs & distributing through multiple retailers, Robin showed up to share her knowledge and experience with PWSD members, and we are all grateful!

Best of all, she was kind enough to make sure that no one would miss out on what she was able to share the members in attendance. If you weren't able to attend, or just can't quite remember what that last slide said, have no fear! Robin sent over her presentation slides, and you can download them right here, right now.

Make sure you check out the calendar for our upcoming events (Can you say Publicity with Marika Flatt?!), and sign up for the PWSD Newsletter so you're always in the loop!
