Between them, Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith have almost a century's experience in books and a multilayered, international publishing and book-selling empire. Kris's "Business Musings" each Friday and Dean's "How To Think Like A Publisher" are legendary among self-publishers. In this wide ranging and inspiring interview they talk about what it takes to make a life and a living in books, including their latest venture, running three physical bookstores.
This broadcast is part of Frankfurt Book Fair 2017 Indie Author Fringe, an online author conference that showcases the best self-publishing advice and education for authors across the world — harnessing the global reach of the Alliance of Independent Authors’ network. Our self-publishing conference features well-known indie authors and advisors, for 24 sessions over 24-hours, in a one-day extravaganza of self-publishing expertise.
Over the course of the year, we take authors across all stages of the author-publishing journey: writing, editorial, design, production, distribution, sales, marketing, rights licensing, money matters and living the indie author life.
And thanks to the generosity of our speakers and sponsors, it's all free.
