Where are You Going? – What to Pack? – And Never Travel Alone.

Laying the groundwork before you publish.

What kind of book are you writing? Is this a career? Is it a passion project? Where is all this going? Now that you have determined you are going on this journey, what are you going to need along the way? Do you need general guidance through the publishing industry? Do you need a visible presence in the market place? Perhaps an injection of legal advice and a dose of intellectual property understanding? Who is going to help provide these services to you? How can you possibly do this all alone and create your book? You probably can’t. Rarely can a person do everything in publishing alone; least of all, do it alone and do it well. This month CIPA presents a panel discussion that addresses these very issues.

Our panel of seasoned professionals share their insights on the most important considerations and critical connections you need for a successful start to your journey through the publishing process.

Panel Discussion with Mike Daniels- Publishing Coach, Veronica Yager- Virtual Publisher’s Assistant, Jon Tandler- Intellectual Property Attorney
