Don't miss this panel discussion on indie publishing to be held
From the Facebook event page:
To initiate an ongoing debate on the state of independent publishing, Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers is bringing together local indie authors who have chosen to forgoe traditional publishing and forge their own paths to authorship. Through consistantly selling out at indie bookstores around the nation and garnering accliam for their work, these wordsmiths are proving to be the vanguard of a new model for publishing. The night features m. craig (The Narrows), Susan Kirschbaum (Who Town), Nathaniel Kressen (Concrete Fever), and Rami Shamir (Train to Pokipse) -- who will talk about the struggles and joys of independent publishing. Specific issues of finance, book-production, editing, and promotion will also be addressed. The authors will share the various approaches they've taken in dealing with these issues, while being questioned by the evening's moderator and Spoonbill's book buyer, Jamie Johnston. The event will take place on
Nov 01, 2012at 7.30 PM at Spoonbill & Sugartown in Williamsburg.
Post script: There is a chance that Anonymous. author of The Oxygen Thief, will also participate in the panel.
