Monthly Meeting–Saturday, February 7, 2015 Ben Reeder will share “Navigating the Amazon: Finding Success on the Digital River”
The world of publishing has changed radically in the past few years. What was once the realm of the Big Six has now become a wide open frontier. Authors have become the new pioneers in the world of self-publishing, making themselves a power to be reckoned with. But like any newly discovered part of the world, there are pitfalls and dangers along with the potential rewards. Self-published author Ben Reeder will be sharing his experiences in this new frontier, talking about what worked for him, what didn’t and what to avoid in publishing. Topics covered include gaining visibility for your work, the role of author as publisher and protecting yourself from scams.
Ben Reeder has self-published four novels in the zombie and paranormal genres, two of which have made the top 100 in three genres. A naturalized Missourian, he has called Springfield home for 25 years. Any resemblance to Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise is entirely unintended, and he vehemently denies being a superhero.
ORA meets in the Frisco Room at The Library Station on N. Kansas Expressway in Springfield, MO at 1 p.m.
