Book Publishing in the Digital Age – Two Authors, Two Publishers:  Many years ago the successful author only needed to write and sell a well crafted book. Promotion, social media, networking and so on did not play a huge role. If an editor felt enamored with the book they would take the risk of publishing. But now it seems like the publishers are asking not only – Is the book well written? Can it sell? But also – Can the author sell his/her book?

On Tuesday, November 11th, I will participate in a discussion between authors and publishers, featuring publisher Phil Bevis (Arundel Books, Chatwin Books), former/current literary agent, publisher, editor, consultant and author Beth Jusino (The Editorial Department, The Author’s Guide to Marketing), and Layne Maheu, author of Song of the Crow (Unbridled Books).

Layne Maheu

Specifics:  Book Publishing in the Digital Age. For writers who have written or are writing a book. Topics include landing an agent, eBooks, traditional publishing, vanity presses, collaborative presses, editing, and small indies, with a primary focus on how social media has changed publishing and how much self promotion is incumbent on the author.
