Publishing University 2015
I was thrilled to attend Independent Book Publishers’ Association 2015 “Publishing University” in Austin, TX in early April, on a scholarship awarded to a member of my local affiliate chapter. I learned a great deal about the publishing business that will make my publishing company ScienceThrillers Media more successful.
Delightful conversation between me and poet Richard Meyer, my former teacher, at my hometown library in New Ulm, Minnesota.
