Topics include:

  • Leveraging your backlist
  • Selling reprints
  • Selling in foreign languages
  • Selling audio rights
  • Publishing a collection
  • The indie option for short fiction
  • Discoverability tools and promotion for established writers
  • Career progression in short fiction

Based on Doug’s book, Playing the Short Game: How to Market & Sell Short Fiction. “We short story writers have needed a book like this for decades. … It’s spectacular. ” —Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Multi-award-winning Author and Editor
