Visiting Publisher

By Kristan Mouat | Posted: Wednesday October 1, 2014

Jim Azevedo, the marketing manager from Smashwords, Ebook publishers gave an interesting presentation to aspiring writers in Term 3.

He discussed preparing books for Ebook publishing, the mechanics of Ebook publishing and advice for designing covers and blurbs for getting your book noticed. He gave a good background on the changing landscape of book publishing. Smashwords aim is to return at least 85% of sales money directly to the author. A number of our writers have already been published in regional and national publications and are interested in Ebook publishing. 

The Dunedin Writers' Group and NZ Society of Authors organised Jim's speaking tour of New Zealand.
