Presenter Gordon Kessler, last year's keynote speaker at WordFest, was so popular that he is returning with a two-part crash course on whether or not ePublishing is right for you, and if so, how to go about it.
The session, titled "EPublishing: Getting Your Words Out to the World!," will be conducted in two parts Saturday at Miller Library. Part A, conducted from 1:45 to 2:45 p.m., looks at why, what, when, where and how, and the pitfalls to avoid in ePublishing. Part B, conducted from 3 to 4 p.m., deals with publishing platforms, such as Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook, Apple iBooks, Kobo, Sony, Diesel, Smashwords. For full-registered attendees, Gordon will be available during the entire conference to sit down and talk about your particular project.
