Navigating Today’s New Publishing Landscape: A Roadmap for Authors
Publishing | with Jon Fine and April Eberhardt
Jon Fine and April Eberhardt are two of the most knowledgeable and respected authorities on independent publishing. Together they will lead this class designed to help authors to understand the new and fast-changing world of publishing. This is an invaluable chance to learn the pros and cons of traditional publishing, assisted publishing, and self-publishing.
In his role as Director of Author and Publisher Relations for Amazon, Jon was a force in the evolution of the industry toward alternatives to the standard model of author / agent / editor / publishing house / publicist. As an author advocate, April has helped hundreds of writers to find their best path to publication and successful sales.
Topics will include case studies of authors who have forged successful careers through non-traditional publishing, tools to help each participant make smart choices about the publishing route that gives them the best odds of success, and little-known details about each of the leading alternative publishing platforms.
Attendees will come out of this class with a clear understanding of all the options available to them and thorough knowledge of which of them is their best bet, how to approach it, and how to optimize the chance for their books to reach a wide audience.
