Digital disruptions, how ready are you?

 

Disruption. Things change. You can either be the artist that embraces change and strives to put your readers, listeners or viewer first, delivering quality content over a variety of mediums.

Interview with an author - Rachel Morgan

Interview with an author - Rachel Morgan

 

In the spirit of sharing the knowledge of local authors who are making an impact on Amazon, I am really excited to be picking the brain of South African author Rachel Morgan.

Read through her answers and realise the investment that, like our other authors, Rachel is making in each title that pours out of her fingers and through her keyboard.

Typesetting for eBooks – Advice on how to structure your eBook interior like a professional publisher.

 

Note from our Guest Blogger.

I first met David Henderson at the Jozi Book Fair in 2014.
