This informal, three-week online course will explore the "past, present, and future perfect tenses" of e-books, self-publishing, and the digital publishing landscape. Anyone interested in the intersection of books, technology, and commerce is sure to find this a fascinating exploration of the massive shift currently underway in the publishing world.
