In this 90-minute webinar hosted by Project Write Now, I’ll walk you through the current publishing landscape to equip you with what you need and want to know about the options, opportunities, and landmines that are out there. This is not your typical Paths to Publishing class, but rather a nuanced look at the various business models. I’ll provide her honest take on what expectations authors can have when it comes to publishing success, and also what authors need to know if they have their hearts set on traditional publishing. Bring your ambitions and fears, and all your questions, too, and let me take you on a journey through modern publishing. There’s room for us all.
