The self-publishing revolution is in full swing, offering writers more opportunities than ever to control the publishing process and create a high-quality book that rivals traditional publishing. Former Apple chief evangelist and bestselling author Guy Kawasaki knows this first-hand. After publishing ten books with traditional publishers, he turned to self-publishing for his last two, including his most recent, APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur–How to Publish a Book.

In this workshop, Guy will explain how to fill the critical roles of author, publisher, and entrepreneur in order to succeed as a self-publisher. Topics include:

•    Writing for the right reasons
•    How to tap “the crowd” during writing and marketing
•    How to produce both ebooks and printed books
•    How to use social media to build a fan base, create a brand, and sell books
•    Recommendations on DIY vs. hiring out

Guy has written eleven other books, including the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller Enchantment. He is the co-founder of Alltop.com, an “online magazine rack” of popular topics on the web, and was previously the chief evangelist of Apple. Guy has a BA from Stanford University, an MBA from UCLA, and an honorary doctorate from Babson College.

A Band of Wives is a new kind of sisterhood for all women-married, single and everything in between.

"Nuts, bolts, and inspiration too. Once again, Guy delivers, kicking the shiitake out of anyone who would tell you that you shouldn't, wouldn't or couldn't write a book." -Seth Godin Author and founder of The Icarus Project. In 2011 the publisher of one of my books, Enchantment, could not fill an order for 500 ebook copies of the book.
