UPDATE: Watch my MAX talk here.
Adobe MAX is right around the corner! As a Creative Resident, I'll be giving a presentation (twice!) called Adventures in Book Publishing. It's a dream for many designers, illustrators and writers to see their name on the cover of a book. I'll be giving an hour long talk where I share my story as well as answer some questions to help aspiring authors get started. Questions like...
Do I need an agent? Should I go with a traditional publisher, or self-publish? How much money will I make? How long does it take? What can a book do for me? Should I share my ideas online? What's the difference between a query and a proposal? ...and more.
I hope this provides clarity to what can seem an ambiguous, arduous undertaking.
