  • The two patron winners of the same book (automatically entered just for being patrons): Mary Jo Rabe and Matty Dalrymple
  • Some recent comments from the past few episodes
  • A personal update

. . . as well as a word from this episode's sponsor Findaway Voices...

In the webinar, Mark, Dan, and Kevin discuss:

  • Quite a bit about libraries and getting eBooks into libraries

  • Getting promos on Kobo, Apple, etc
  • Books2Read and universal book links
  • The D2D Print beta
  • Findaway Voices and audiobooks
  • Exclusivity VS Wide Publishing
  • Assets for newsletter marketing

After the main content, Mark shares his reflections on hoopla and his optimism of having his eBooks available in another library channel, particular having seen some success with his audiobook income via hoopla from Findaway Voices.
