Yesterday I was at BookExpo America. I'm returning today.
What have I learned?
There are a bunch of independent authors and publishers out there.
Some of the stuff is good; some of it isn't so good.
It's a challenge to "break through" and get a book out there. Marketing is perhaps the greatest challenge.
I've also realized that I should create a listserve for the email addresses of all the people I meet that say having an alternative to the Ds & Rs would be a good thing.
