    Take away: I hadn’t thought about the ISBN number. I need to re-think my use of photos. I have just started Scrivener and I am glad that Lisa uses it. I need to look at more Legacy webinars. The What, Who cares and Why was a wakeup call.

    Very interesting discussion for a participant in the first stages of writing a book on family history. There are many things to be considered apart from the actual writing and Lisa outlined these important topics which needed to be researched if there is going to be a finished product.

    This topic could easily take up a whole series of webinars but Lisa did a nice job of summarizing the complexities involved and possible approaches.

    Excellent webinar, a refresher for me, since I’ve published since 2012, going through pretty much the same steps without guidance. I’ve limited publishing on Amazon as it’s the most economical and versatile for my genre, mainly cookbooks and procedural books. Normally “free” webinars provide no substantial information and this one was completely different. I had only registered for 2 but based on the value obtained in spite of this very early hour for me, I plan to register for all of them. Thank you!
