Self-Evaluating Your Publishing Program for Maximum Success
Elva Resa Publishing founder and publisher Karen Pavlicin-Fragnito will talk about the key questions publishers should ask themselves about their books, portfolio, brand, and go-to-market strategy to self-evaluate their publishing programs and effectively seize their best opportunities. Whether you are new to publishing or have been publishing for many years, you’ll find helpful information ranging from industry standards for creating your books to determining if niche publishing is right for your press. More information can be found at ElvaResa.com and KarenPavlicin.com. Send your questions ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com by October 31, and Karen will address as many pre-submitted questions as possible in her presentation.
