)-- iUniverse President and CEO Susan Driscoll will be a featured speaker at Mega Book Marketing, a publishing industry conference to be held in Los Angeles, March 2-4, 2007. Driscoll’s presentation, “Publishing 101: Which Direction is Best for You?” will take place on Sunday, March 4 from 7:30 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. in the O’Hare Room at the Westin Los Angeles Airport Hotel.
A leading figure in the world of self-publishing, Driscoll has been president and CEO of iUniverse since 2003. Using her more than twenty years of experience in the book publishing industry, Driscoll will explain how authors can take control of the publishing process and guarantee themselves a positive publishing experience. Attendees will also learn how publishers decide which books to publish, why it’s so difficult for first-time authors to get published and the pros and cons of self-publishing.
“Any author who is confused about their publishing options or discouraged by rejection from publishers and agents will benefit by attending this session,” Driscoll said. “My presentation is intended to help authors consider their goals and make the best possible choices when publishing their work.”
Mark Victor Hansen, creator of the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul book series, developed the Mega Book Marketing conference. The limited-seating event brings together authors, publishers and literary agents with the purpose of helping authors gain an insider’s perspective of the publishing industry.
