Acclaimed horror writer Mark Leslie (SPOOKY SUDBURY and HAUNTED HAMILTON) attended the November 2013 monthly meeting of the Sudbury Writers’ Guild to “do a talk from a writer’s perspective on EMBRACING ALL OPTIONS – ie, exploring traditional publishing as well as taking advantage of opportunities from platforms like Kobo Writing Life, as well as the other places like Amazon’s KDP, Smashwords, Wattpad, etc.”

His talk was well received and attendees came away with information about a balanced approach to e-publishing, including details regarding print on demand and eBook options. For more information on Mark Leslie’s books visit his website – Mark Leslie | Writer – Editor – Book Nerd. For information regarding his work with Kobo see – Kobo Writing Life.
