Webinar Summary:

Are you interested in publishing a book but are confused by the different publishing options available? This webinar is for you! Join author Brigitte Brulz as she presents the differences and similarities between traditional publishing, hybrid publishing, and self-publishing.

Learn about the different publishing options; publishing terms such as query letter, manuscript, book proposal, exclusive submissions, simultaneous submissions, advances, and royalties; what a literary agent does; things to consider if choosing a hybrid publisher; the pros and cons of print-on-demand publishing; and two self-publishing companies that offer print-on-demand publishing. By the end of this webinar, you should have a better idea of which publishing option is best for you and your book and what to do to move forward with that publishing option.
