May 2020 Signature Edition

This SATURDAY (May 16th, 2020) Join Us for Indie Publishing “Unmasked”:  How Indie Publishers Survive and Thrive in our New World Reality.

Register now as we have limited seats and they are going fast! 

CIPA’s MVP Panel (Mike, Veronica and Peter) will share what indie publishers need to do to market and sell their books during and after the impact of COVID-19.

  • You’ll learn the pros and cons of working with Amazon and/or IngramSpark for Print-On-Demand (POD) to sell books to the public and to retailers and how quick-turn, short-run digital and longer run offset production provides the margins you need.
  • Discover publishing industry resources for indie/self-publishers.
  • Get a quick overview on postponed and cancelled regional and national events for 2020.
  • Learn about “free stuff” available to publishers and authors from industry partners and new initiatives being launched to promote indie publishers.
  • Get updates on legislation to protect author copyrights.
  • Learn how Bookshop.org competes with Amazon and how your book(s) can become available through them.
  • Realize how important it is to effectively use eBooks, websites, social media and online platforms.

…and much more.

The meeting start promptly 9 a.m. Please login in 5-10 minutes prior to check your equipment.
