How to avoid the biggest mistakes independent authors make
Karen Strauss has worked in publishing for over 30 years. She held positions at Random House, Crown, Macmillan and Avon in Publicity, Sales, and Marketing.
She founded Hybrid Global Publishing because of high demand from independent authors who wanted to experience publishing just as they would if they had been publishing with a traditional, big publisher.
Karen’s webinar will guide authors, entrepreneurs and business people on the pitfalls and obstacles to publishing success.
She cuts through the red tape by discussing:
- What is the right publishing option for you.. She will talk about the pros and cons of – Self-publishing, traditional publishing, hybrid publishing
- What does it mean to get your book “edited” – Do I need a content editor, ghost writer or copywriter?
- Is a proofreader the same as an editor?
- How important is the cover design to the success of my book?
- What are some marketing tools and resources I need to know about to successfully launch my book?
- How can I mount an Amazon bestseller campaign and does it really mean anything?
You will be supplied with a Marketing checklist, too, to make sure you aren’t missing anything![contentblock id=3 img=html.png]
