Dec 11, 2020
To close this year when so many people suffered so many setbacks through COVID-19 and its consequences, our #AskALLi Advanced Self-Publishing Salon with Orna Ross and Joanna Penn examines the role of author mistakes, setbacks, and failures in an author business. They look back on the lessons learned from their own mistakes and failures in 2020, and across their years of self-publishing.
This session will highlight some of the most common mistakes made by indie authors, so you can avoid them, and propose a way of dealing with negative experience so it can be put to best use in your author business.
Tune in for all this and much much more.
Our advanced salon is brought to you by specialist sponsor IngramSpark.
