Hi everybody!

Have you ever thought about writing a book... maybe even self-publishing that book? And, even if you don’t want to write a book, are you aware of the many opportunities that exist worldwide in the book publishing industry? That’s just some of what my guest expert, Martha Bullen-- longtime book publishing consultant and book coach-- will speak with me about on this episode of Looking Forward.

In fact, Martha will discuss such things as (1) the dramatic changes which have occurred in book publishing over the past 20 years, (2) COVID-19's impact on book publishing, (3) how the market for books is growing globally, including in Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America, and (4) what the future might look like for the book publishing industry.

Most importantly, in true Looking Forward fashion, Martha will speak about the MANY opportunities she believes book publishing offers for authors, entrepreneurs, retailers, various kinds of freelancers, and investors. She'll also provide some great tips on how you might capitalize on those opportunities. .
