Ebook Self-Publishing Takes Center Stage

I’ll begin this post with the words of Mark Coker, Founder, CEO, and Chief Author Advocate of Smashwords, the world’s largest distributor of indie ebooks:

“I just returned from an action-packed weekend at the San Francisco Writers Conference, one of the best writers conferences in the country.  On Monday, I also attended Carla King’s Self-Publishing Boot Camp, which was co-sponsored by SFWC.

“For the four years I’ve been presenting at SFWC, I’ve always found the organizers enthusiastic and open-minded about self-publishing, but this year’s conference took that enthusiasm to a new level. Multiple self-publishing keynotes and presentations from the likes of Guy Kawasaki, Bella Andre and even presentations from yours truly (embedded below!) helped educate newbie and experienced authors alike on how to advance their writing careers.”

And, here are those two presentations (please notice the control panel at the bottom of both presentations. I recommend you click the icon on the far right side of that control panel and watch these presentations in Full Screen :-) :

    I particularly liked the chart showing how the price of the book affects its sales.

      Yes, Barbara, makes me wonder if I should raise the price of my e-book :-)
