How individual writers
can now effectively compete
with the giants
of the publishing industry

by Dan Poynter
and Danny O. Snow

About the Book:

The publishing industry is transforming at the dawn of the 21st Century. New technologies are revolutionizing the way writers deliver their work to a vast worldwide audience.

With the explosion of the Internet, never before has it been possible for writers to make their work so readily, and so directly, available to the reading public. Increasingly, writers are discovering that they can publish independently, without the time, effort and expense traditionally required working with a conventional publisher or printer.

Thanks to new technologies, self-publishing is now a better option for writers than at any time in history.

Instead of investing $10,000 or more for an old-fashioned press run of thousands of books, writers can now self-publish their own books for about one-tenth the cost. Using the best possible combination of electronic and "print-on-demand" methods, self-published books can now be made available to an estimated 50-70 million or more users of the Internet, plus in paperback from more than 25,000 bookstores worldwide -- with nominal risk and expense.

New electronic media also make it possible to promote books at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. Yet time-honored principles for publicity and marketing hold truer than ever, regardless of the medium used to deliver the message.

"" is intended to keep today's writers informed about the latest technologies for publishing books independently, and about new - and proven - methods to promote them.

The combination of leading-edge technologies and proven principles for marketing and promotion offers writers the chance to compete effectively with major publishing houses. For the first time in history, it is possible for writers to bring their work more directly to readers around the world. The effect of these developments will revolutionize the way books are published in the new millennium.
