Entrepreneurial Publishing: Advice for indie authors and publishers by Guy Kawasaki
Guy Kawasaki self-published his book, What the Plus! and learned first-hand that self-publishing is a complex, confusing, and idiosyncratic process. As Steve Jobs said, “There must be a better way.”
Inspired, Guy wrote APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur to help people take control of their writing careers by publishing their books. The thesis of APE is simple but powerful: When a self-publisher successfully fills three roles—author, publisher and entrepreneur—the potential benefits are greater than with traditional publishing.
Guy calls this “artisanal publishing.”
Artisanal publishing features writers who love their craft, and who control every aspect of the process from beginning to end. In this new approach, writers are no longer at the mercy of large, traditional publishers, and readers will have more books to read.
Join us live to hear Guy's advice for publishers and ask your own questions.
Bonus! The question period will be led by Jenn Zahrt, who won the UW Digital Publishing Class pitch contest with her elevator pitch for Galatura.
