We wrapped up another successful Indie Author Fringe this weekend and want to say thanks to our fabulous sponsors and speakers who help us keep our online conference “Free to Attend”. We also want to thank you for attending, and helping us spread the word.
The speakers provided a wealth of self-publishing advice about how to set up and run an author business, and there were relevant topics for different skill levels and genres. So no matter where you are in your author journey or what your business expertise is, there was something for everyone.
