  1. The Self Publishing Conference looks rather interesting. And I like that it’s online so it’s accessible to anyone who’s interested and has the budget to attend.

    • I am glad that there are some contests and conferences that are now online based. It means that people from any part of the world can participate and meet like minded professionals without the need to leave their country or their house.

      • Agreed. I also think conferences that aren’t usually accessible could be made so in some way – perhaps recorded and put on YouTube like they do with TED talks. Or make it available for purchase on DVD.

  2. That’s great information. It will definitely help the small business owners. Thanks for the information.
