Smashwords Author Day, Spring 2020 Now Online

The pandemic may have shuttered in-person writers conferences in 2020, but it didn't negate the need for ongoing author education.

Back in April, Smashwords marketing director Jim Azevedo presented a live, power-packed webinar featuring four workshop presentations covering the most important indie publishing topics for indie ebook publishing. 

Jim shared actionable advice on how authors can make their books more visible, desirable and enjoyable readers.  Learn state-of-the-art strategies for building a marketing platform you control.

These presentations are now available for viewing at the Author Day event page and on the Smashwords YouTube channel.

Or, watch any of the individual segments below:

0.  Introduction and start

Wow! I've watched the first 2 episodes of the series and I'm incredibly impressed. (I'll watch the rest over the next few days) This is a wonderful resource for all authors, at all levels of experience. Jim clearly explains all of the important aspects to publishing your books. It's fun, interesting, and educational. Thank you for the hours and hours it would have taken to put these episodes together. Leeann.
