The publishing world is wrought with uncertainty. Traditional book sales are down, digital publishing is in its infancy, and publishing houses, faced with shrinking budgets, are forced to shy away from publishing novels written by new, untested authors.
The rules of the industry are changing. Before approaching agents and publishers, new fiction authors are working to self-publish and grow audiences with social media tools. When they approach a publisher with a new novel and a built-in audience, they take note.
On this panel, hear from literary agents and authors describe the way the industry is changing and why it doesn't mean doom-and-gloom for unknown fiction writers. They'll share success stories, practical advice, and opinions on the future of publishing.
