Free (if you pre-register) Self-Publishing Presentation

October 7, 2014 @ 5:45 pm - 8:45 pm

• Do you have a book inside you just screaming to get out?

• Are you interested in finding a more effective way to communicate with your clients?

• Does that whole “e-book”, “e-publishing” world confuse you?


Join Martin Crosbie on Tuesday October 7th as he shares the secrets that helped him become a full-time writer and produce five bestselling books in the past two years. Martin will show how he transformed his attitude from “waiting for the world to recognize my brilliance” to discovering the methods that the top 5% of authors utilize to produce content and connect with readers.

In this informative session you will learn how to produce a professional e-book that can stand spine-to-virtual-spine with any traditionally published book (without breaking the bank).
