We asked our following what questions they had about writing, publishing and marketing their books, and we answered them in a live Q&A session. The majority of the questions focussed on self-publishing books, so that was our focus. We answered questions about ISBN’s, book distribution, choosing a title, formatting, and more.
Here’s what some of the live attendees had to say:
“Great info…great presentation. Thanks.” ~ Yves
“It was very informative. Great Job!” ~ Susan
