Do I have a shot at getting a traditional publisher? What are traditional publishers looking for? What are the advantages of self publishing? What about hybrid publishing? How do I find high quality freelance publishing support? What should I consider in deciding what publishing path to take?

When it comes to deciding on your publishing path, there’s no one-size-fits-all. Many traditionally published authors are now choosing to self-publish some of their books. As the publishing landscape continues to change, new considerations emerge.

In this presentation, in addition to answering the above questions, book coach and book proposal expert Lisa Tener will share the pros and cons of various publishing paths, advice to get the most out of your chosen path, how to avoid scams and other problems and how to assemble a high quality publishing team, whatever path you choose. Lisa will share the questions to ask a publisher and other publishing professionals.

Lisa will leave plenty of time to answer individual questions as well.
