Here's just a few of the topics we're covering in our online Fringe event:
- Inspirational indie and renowned writing and business advisor, Joanna Penn, is interviewed by Sukhi Jutla, of The Author Entrepreneurs, about what it takes to succeed in the books business. Hint: it starts with an indie mindset and a business plan. Authorship provides “a viable business in this age of global and digital opportunity,” says Penn, explaining the step-by-step process that will move you from being an author to running a successful author business, as quickly and easily as possible.
- Between them, Kristine and Dean have almost a century’s experience in books and a multilayered, international publishing and book-selling empire. Kris’s “Business Musings” each Friday and Dean’s “How To Think Like A Publisher” are legendary among self-publishers. In this wide ranging and inspiring interview they talk about what it takes to make a life and a living in books, including their latest venture, running three physical bookstores.
- There’s more to digital advertising than Facebook ads. In this candid interview, bestselling Author Mark Dawson and his colleague at SelfPublishingFormula.com James Blatch discuss the latest trends in paid ads for authors with seven actionable tips you can put in place, right now.
- Because only a small percentage of authors earn a living from their books, most need to develop additional revenue streams. In this content-rich presentation, Stephanie Chandler shares real-world examples and strategies for adding lucrative revenue streams to your author/publisher business.
- Have you tried and failed to get a Bookbub Featured Deal? There is another way to access Bookbub’s growing hordes of keen readers: their advertising program.
