Bloomington, IND (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
Author Learning Center, the premier online author education resource for writers engaged in any stage of the story development or book marketing process, today announced Seth Godin, Squidoo founder, blogger and the author of 13 best-selling professional marketing and business strategy books, will be featured on the site.
“Seth Godin: On Traditional and Indie Publishing,” is the first of several videos featuring Godin that examine book-marketing strategies and the challenges authors most often encounter when promoting and selling their work. In this first video, Godin reflects on his experiences with rejection as a first-time author and the expectations authors should have when they choose how to publish through either a self-publishing or traditional option.
With experience as both a traditionally published and a self-published author, Godin provides a unique perspective on the advantages of each publishing opportunity. Interestingly, Godin is one of many traditionally published authors who have opted to self-publish some of their newer books because of the creative control, faster go-to-market and higher royalties authors enjoy.
