Resources for Digital Publishing And You
March 16, 2014 resourceOne of the things I like to (and am reasonably qualified to) talk about at conventions is digital publishing. I've worn a lot of hats, and so have some experience talking to and about the many different roles and models these things take.

However, I forgot to bring my handouts for my talk today (that will start just after this post goes live) at Millennicon.
