Recently, I had the privilege of moderating a panel sponsored by the Women’s National Book Assn-San Francisco Chapter (WNBA-SF) at the San Francisco Main Library discussing the fate of publishing in this new world of ebooks and
downloads. The art of the writing is very much alive and well along with those passionate about the written word. Technology has enhanced the delivery with things like eb00ks and on-line magazines, and made it more accessible for small publishers to get their unique projects in front of their target audiences.
What does this mean to you? Believe in your writing. Finish your book and don’t think that you have to wait for a big publishing house to offer you a contract for your manuscript. Join organizations such as the WNBA-SF to learn about your craft and network with others in your profession. Small publishers can have a big impact on the literary industry. You don’t have to be affiliated with a big pulshing company to be listed on Amazon!
If you have a story you want to tell, a book you’d like to share with the world, or an idea that could develop into a writing project – contact me. I’d love to help you realize your dream!
