Book Publishing in the Digital Age
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).
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.
Media: Layne Maheu interviews Phil Bevis: Good News for eBooks and Hardcover Books
