It’s no secret that when you choose to self-publish your content, you’re no longer considered vain or a loser because no main stream publisher would publish your book. Self-publishing is a smart decision for many online entrepreneurs and business owners who want to move fast and retain control and profits from their work.
The trend towards new ways to publish and build credibility and visibility with your work, is one reason Ellen Britt and I launched The Future of Ink last year. It’s also why we’re presenting the inaugural Digital Publishing Online Intensive (DPOI).
The Keynote Speaker for DPOI is Guy Kawasaki, author of the new bestselling book, APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur – How to Publish a Book. Guy is the perfect choice to kick off the event.
