The WikiBrands Publishing Journey

"So, if print is dead and technology books face obsolescence before they even reach the shelves, why would we even take on the project?

At Toronto Wiki Tuesday, we'll answer this question as well as discuss:
- Key lessons learned about the writing process
- Finding an agent and writing the proposal
- What to expect in the editing process
- The pros and cons of self-publishing
- Marketing the book
