Master Business Class Information

Still Have Openings…

The workshop is October 19th through the 23rd in Las Vegas. A firehose of information at the top levels of indie publishing business.

Folks, you don’t want to miss this one. Write me at to get more information and instructions on how to sign up and pay for the workshop.

The workshop is being held at the Golden Nugget in downtown Las Vegas in a beautiful and modern convention center. There is a block of room you want to be in because it will be cheaper and also for ease and other reasons. I will send you a code to get into the workshop room block once you sign up.

And just today we got it okayed that if you come in early or want to stay over a day or so after, you can keep the same block rate of the conference.

Normally, for the last three years, this workshop was sold out by now, but we still have room in the workshop this year because of the move to Las Vegas and so many people having to drop out due to the change in venue. So we have room, but don’t wait too long to sign up. I expect this workshop with this cast of instructors to fill quickly now.

Again, a don’t-miss workshop. And you can get all the information on this and any coast workshop at including pictures of all the Master Class instructors so far.

Later in August we will start finalizing the actual schedule of the workshop, so stay tuned for that.

Here is the basic information…

From cash flow to increasing sales to SEO to website design to cover and interior book design to blurbs to publisher catalogs to distribution of paper books to stores to production to learning how to write more to audio to overseas sales to contracts to bundles to… So much more.

This workshop focuses on selling more books, indie publishing, the business of indie and hybrid, and the constant changes overwhelming us all.
