  1. So many wonderful speakers here. The information is excellent. I’m so happy I can listen to all of them at a later date because I have work today, Sunday, and yesterday I was only able to listen and absorb three. Is my understanding correct that they will stay posted on your blog? Is there a limited time fame?

    Thank-you to Alli and all the speakers for their time and willingness to share their knowledge.

    1. Wouldn’t that be wonderful. Unfortunately Book Expo axed all self-publishing education this year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoozCacrMPo

      However, the good news is gold sponsor, Ingram Spark, is holding an event “Indie Author 101” at the Ingram Stand. So head on over there, if you have time!

      The Fringe events will be online for you to watch later.
