Self-Publisher’s Toolkit — with IngramSpark

Seminar/Webinar

As writers, we know that writing a great piece is only part of our challenge. Along with the writing and editing, we have the challenges of publishing our work. That’s why, in February, we are hosting a special WEBINAR with IngramSpark, one of the main producers of print-on-demand and e-books.

IngramSpark offers the same products and services enjoyed by big-time publishers—superb quality and industry connections backed by decades of experience—made accessible to the indie-publishing community from one award-winning platform.

We will discuss the following topics as time permits…

  • Print on Demand as a way to create and sell quality printed books without a massive print run.
  • E-book publishing
  • Formats
  • Reach to 39,000+ retailers and libraries worldwide and 70+ major online retailers.
  • Marketing

Presented by: Justine Bylo — Key Account Sales Manager, IngramSpark, Ingram Content Group Inc.
