Meeting Recap – Self-publishing

Meeting RecapThis meeting took place on January 5th. Five members were in attendance: Art, John, Donna, Diane and Barb.

During the meeting we discussed self-publishing in general, as well as the results of 2015 Smashwords Survey Reveals Insights to Help Authors Reach More Readers.

We paid particular attention on the following topics: preorders, giving away the first book in a series, the free book, the price that sells well and ones that don’t, length of books and categories that sell well.
