Book Publishing Advice for B2B Companies

“Lisa, congratulations on launching your book.  I have a book that I want to write, but I just can’t seem to finish it.”

If I was given a dime for every time someone has told me that they have a burning desire to write a book, I would be a multi-millionare.

Many of you may have a great book that you are dying to share with the world, but just don’t know where to begin. The e-reader revolution is creating a lot of publishing buzz–and confusion.  As a result, it has also caused lots of experts and executives to delay their decision to move forward.

In our 70-minute audio interview, you will hear how three authors (including me) have:

•navigated the publishing industry in our own unique way
•developed a cogent book marketing strategy
•bucked the traditional publishing channels and thrived

Other authors you’ll hear from include:

Carol McClelland, PhD, Founder and Executive Director of Green Career Central  is author of three books, most recently Green Careers for Dummies — Your Guide to the Green Economy

Stephen Moulton, President and Chief Insight Officer of Action Insight is author of The CEO’s Advantage–7 Keys for Hiring Extraordinary Leaders

A special thanks goes to our host, Samantha Hartley of Enlightened Marketing, for leading this interactive call.
