Publishing, as we know it, is changing. Every day there are new stories of authors and artists across industries who are taking their careers into their own hands and choosing to self publish. A variety of influences are propelling this change: the Internet itself, digital printing vendors like Lulu and Blurb, user-friendly desktop publishing software and lest we forget, the bottom-line publishing houses who are taking fewer risks and offering reduced incentives.
Will self-publishing de-throne the kings of publishing? Will indie authors get the respect that they long for? What is the future of publishing and self-publishing in general?
Come hear our speaker, Bryony Gomez-Palacio of UnderConsideration LLC, share her experiences with traditional publishing, and her move to self-publishingundefinedand why she believes there is no going back. Four titles, four experiences, and lessons learned she has many insights to share.
We hope you will join us in May for what is sure to be an informative, insightful and inspiring presentation.
