#IAF16 Is Trade Publishing Broken? An Insider's Perspective. @emilylabram #selfpub http://bit.ly/IAF-BEA-EL Click To Tweet
Too many authors think a publishing contract is a golden ticket and fail to understand how to best use trade publishing to connect them to readers. Listen in to this frank discussion between Emily Labram, former product manager at HarperCollins and now technologist at Bibliocloud, and Orna Ross, Director of the Alliance of Independent Authors, who took her rights back from Penguin to self-publish “her own books her own way”. They will discuss how to take a rights perspective when dealing with publishers, and how publishers must transform to meet the needs of readers and writers.
