March 22, 2015 — A new way of selling books and stories online. Use an ecommerce plugin to set up an author’s own online bookstore, incuding a member site for current works in progress. Why not tap into your fans’ dedication to your work in progress by publishing it before it’s done? Set up online sales of completed works as a regular online store, but treat your work in progress as a member site to generate revenue as you write.

This talk will show you an example of how this can be done.
