    I was shocked that all the sessions are available but a few. I try to watch as many as possible in a day (binge) and take notes. It’s very disheartening when you pay for the membership but can’t access all the content.

    Denise,
    If you examine all the free resources that are shown with each presenter listed, it will take you at least eight hours besides listening to the presenters for that day. Check out for example: Book Selling University on Youtube with all its free courses.

    All that is offered is amazing with this Summit 2023. Look befow each presenter at what they are offering, check out their blogs, resources, and freebies.

    Didn’t realize an illustrator is different than a designer, very important to know this.

    Wow! Tamara was fabulous. What a great webinar! Even though I’ve self-published 3 books,, I learned so much about interior design/covers from Tamara. She gives such great tips for authors to make their books more beautiful and marketable.

    Thank you for the beautiful and lovely journey through covers and interior pictures. I loved the trip! Thank you for the great tips. How wonderful to discover that a writer can also be more of an art director of his/her picture book, or a book designer (more than an illustration). These are great hats that some of the writers may be already wearing without even knowing. 🙂

    It was a great session!

    Thank you, Tamara, for a great session. Your make-overs are impressive. I looked at your website as well to see a lot more of them. I love all the extra design elements you include to add lots more interest to the design. Also, thank you for so many helpful downloads. My books could really use the creative extras you add.
