PREMIER EVENT: Guy Kawasaki

APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur-How to Publish a Book

Come learn about the ins and outs of self-publishing with Silicon Valley venture capitalist, entrepreneur, and bestselling author, Guy Kawasaki.

In 2011 the publisher of Guy's book, Enchantment, could not fill an order for 500 ebook copies. Because of this experience, he self-published his next book, What the Plus!, and learned first-hand that self-publishing is a complex, confusing, and idiosyncratic process.

With Shawn Welch, a tech wizard, Guy wrote APE to help people take control of their writing careers by publishing their books. The thesis of APE is simple but powerful: a successful self-publisher must fill three roles: Author, Publisher, and Entrepreneur.

Guy Kawasaki is a special advisor to the Motorola business unit of Google. He is also the author of APE, What the Plus!, Enchantment, and nine other books. Previously, he was the chief evangelist of Apple. Kawasaki has a BA from Stanford University and an MBA from UCLA as well as an honorary doctorate from Babson College.
