Tap the expertise of Publishers Weekly and BookLife to get an inside look at the ever evolving and rapidly expanding world of self-publishing. This one-day, online event will present a series of thoughtful discussions and breakout sessions to help authors find the success their book deserves.

Whether it’s cover design, mastering a social media presence, or working with an editor, knowledgeable professionals will guide attendees through the various steps and multiple paths in the self-publishing process. By the end of conference, attendees will walk away with a plan to claim their space as an indie author.
