Upcoming Training for Indie Publishers: IBPA

The IBPA Publishing University conference is designed to help self-published authors and indie publishers take their craft to the next level.

We’ll be there, and we hope you will too!

The annual event will be held April 7-8 this year in Portland, Oregon.

Pressbooks marketing manager Elizabeth Mays will be presenting a session on the components of self-publishing where you can DIY, and the aspects where you should hire a pro.

Other speakers include Jane Friedman, co-founder of The Hot Sheet; Carla King, author and founder of the Self-Publishing Boot Camp for Authors; and Robin Cutler, director of IngramSpark.

Sessions will teach authors how to build their brand and platform, launch your book with great reviews, get national distribution and navigate common legal challenges for writers.

You can learn more or register for this year’s event here. We’ll see you there!
