Writer's Journey FREE Teleseminar Interview with Joanna Penn
How to Identify the Right Publishing Option for Your Book
Julia McCutchen interviews Joanna Penn
The publishing industry is in a state of major change.
Advances in technology and continued deep discounting by retailers are raising questions about the long term future of the traditional publishing model.
This situation is a double-edged sword for authors.
It is becoming increasingly challenging for new authors to inspire enough confidence in agents and publishers to take them on.
Simultaneously, doors are opening elsewhere for writers to take their work directly to their readers - without the requirement of such 'intermediaries'.
Over the last few years, Joanna Penn has studied the various options available to authors which she summarises in her Publishing Quadrant blueprint.
This Publishing Quadrant is the model which authors can use to decide which publishing option is right for them and their book.
One factor which all routes to market have in common is the need for authors to engage actively in the task of building their own platform.
And Joanna specialises in showing how web 2.0 tools can help authors publish, promote and sell their own books.
