- ISBN, copyright, and other data
- Printing economics
- Marketing and sales
By the end of this presentation, you will have a clear idea of how to take control of your publishing process. You’ll have the tools to find, evaluate and engage professional help, if needed, and will have a list of resources to help you on the path to exceptional and affordable self-publishing.
