How to Succeed in Self-Publishing
Pretty much anyone can self publish these days. My grandma could essentially write a book, or draw a comic book, and get herself on Amazon (and she’s legally blind). But just because she could make her book available for sale, doesn’t mean that she would be successful and able to have a self-sustaining business. If you want to know what to do, and more importantly, what not to do in order to increase the likelihood of you “making it” as a Self Publisher, then you need to attend this Panel.
