Getting published has never been easy, but once upon a time the protocol was at least straightforward: writers would focus mainly on searching (and searching, and searching) for a literary agent willing to introduce their manuscript into an otherwise impenetrable industry. Of course, times have changed. While the traditional approach continues to work for many authors, an ever-expanding universe of publishing options has made ‘straightforward’ a thing of the past. Is your head buzzing with terms like .epub & .mobi, print-on-demand, audiobook AAX, offset run, and indie press? Join author and publisher Chris Register for an in-depth survey of the choices faced by today’s writers, illustrated with examples and lessons from his own winding journey through the process, and addressing questions specific to participants’ individual goals.
