Surprise! Publishing is going digital. Itâ€™s actually been digital for a while. Every part, that is, except the last piece, where you hold a printed book in your hand. All steps before that? Analog.
But now thatâ€™s changing. In March of 2011, ebooks outpaced paperbacks. Soon theyâ€™ll eclipse the sale of hardbound books. Itâ€™s going to happen.
Writers with an established fan base are skipping publishers, taking the direct approach. This used to be a pipe dream & now it is reality. For them, publishers just get in the way.
Agents are breaking a time-honored rule and becoming publishers. Why settle for a few percentage points when you did all the work to find the talent?
The same is happening to editors, distributors, designers, marketers and countless other service providers. We live in a connected, non-linear world. It was foolish to think things would always stay the way they were.
But accepting the changing nature of publishing doesnâ€™t do you a lick of good if you donâ€™t know that all those pieces connect. How to make those connections. How to get your work from a .doc file to inside someoneâ€™s head.
We do. And thereâ€™s power in that knowledge. Even better:Â weâ€™ll teach you.
