WHAT IS THE CHANGING WORLD OF PUBLISHING?
So, you’ve always dreamed about writing a book.
Thirty years ago you would have come up with an idea and submitted your manuscript, hoping for that huge contract. Best sellers would realize a large advance, six-figure marketing budgets, and publishers would have printed at least 50,000 copies for distribution. The publisher’s public relations department would have set you up with a tour schedule and media interviews. As a writer you could then sit down and write your next best seller.
But the world of publishing has changed!
Today, there are more new products introduced in publishing than any other industry. It is difficult to make any publication stand out and, you are competing against 13-million other books in print.
The publishing world is in a never-ending state of change at this time in history due to: technology (web-sites and social media), consumer buying habits, and new print options.
In addition, take into account the complexities of the business, intense competition, and the consolidation of publishers.
But everything isn’t gloom and doom. There are more opportunities than ever before for you, the writer, to share your creative self with your stories.
