Stark Reflections on Writing and Publishing

Nov 19, 2021

Mark shares three short audio excerpts from the November 2021 20BooksVegas conference.

20Books Vegas 2021 is by far the biggest and best of the 20Books shows (there have been ten so far). It is the biggest show in the world focused on self-publishing although there is something for every author, traditional or indie.

The 20Books mentality is that everyone deserves a chance to succeed if they take the knowledge and experience and apply it to their author business.

With up to 20 authors making seven figures a year and hundreds making a full-time living, there will be something for everyone. Be warned, no one is going to carry you and make you an overnight sensation. You have to do that for yourself by applying what over 100 guest speakers have to offer. Are you ready to excel, reap the rewards of your good work? Then take control of your author career.


Prior to the main content, Mark shares recent comments, a personal update, thanks new patron Michael Howell and shares a word about this episode's sponsor.
