Event description



Since starting GETPUBLISHED, we've wanted to create a one-day conference that would serve as the catalyst for savvy speakers, marketers, businesses, pastors and entrepreneurs around the world to easily build the strategies, relationships, and expertise they need to rapidly get their book published.

It's called GetPublished Summit 2020, and it will bring hundreds of innovative speakers, business owners, thought leaders, and key influencers together for a one-day journey, taking you from optimizing every point of your message though the final outcome - your published book.

Here’s What to Expect:

You should plan on coming prepared and ready to get the full overview of the publishing world today. Our presenter, Michael Stickler, is fast paced, knowledgeable and has the first-hand experience as an author and publisher of a great variety of books. Your needs are in mind in his approach to the overall learning experience. As an entrepreneur, Mike will show you the path of taking your idea from concept to print form. But, more than that, he’ll give you tools on how to sell it to your choice audience. He makes a commitment to give you everything you need to propel your story forward. And he’ll take time to answer every question you have.

Why Should You Invest the Time:

Time seems to be the only finite thing in life. And we are cognizant of the fact that the investment of your time is a sacrificial one. So, we promise to baptize you with the information and every conversion point to determine the best publishing path for you.

  • Your Book’s Purpose
  • Traditional v. Self-Publishing Models
  • Unforeseen pitfalls made frequently by authors
  • Print v. E-Book v. Audio Books
  • Revenue Models
  • And Much, Much, More


Engage with industry thought-leaders who will transform the way you think about telling your story.
