Meet Your Host:


I'm Karen Strauss

I've worked in publishing for more than thirty years and held management and marketing positions at major publishing houses, including The Free Press, Crown, Random House, and Avon.

I founded Hybrid Global Publishing in 2011 to help authors, speakers, and entrepreneurs get their message out by writing and publishing a book. Hybrid Global offers publishing, distribution, and marketing services for organizations and individual authors. I'm the author of Book Publishing for Entrepreneurs: Top Secrets from a New York Publisher and host events and programs regularly to support authors like you.
