Do Your E-Book Right (and Start Making Money) — July 31 Webinar With Jane Friedman

The industry has exploded with new and free opportunities to help you publish your work electronically, at little or no cost to you. Learn how to get visibility for your work by using online services that make your work available on major e-reading platforms such as Kindle, Nook, and iPad.

This intensive and information-filled 90-minute webinar — titled “Do Your E-Book Right (and Start Making Money): All the 101 you need to get started in e-publishing your work.″ — gives you a tour of how these sites work and how writers are using them to move their career forward. While e-publishing doesn’t equal instant success (if you build it, they may NOT come), you’ll learn the principles behind the successful creation and distribution of an e-book. It all happens at 1 p.m., EST, Thursday, July 31, 2014, and lasts 90 minutes.
