There has been a paradigm shift in the publishing business. There's good news and bad news here. The good news? Never in the history of publishing has there been a better time for you to get your book published. What's the bad news? Signing on with a traditional or mainstream publisher is no longer the best option for a writer. Even though the window to sign on with a mainstream publishing company may be narrowing, and in most cases will no longer work for an author, it's not your fault. It's not the quality of your book, but the flawed Traditional Publishing Model itself.
They can't handle it The big boys of Traditional Publishing can't, or won't, publish all the books that need to be published. Because they are not doing it, those good books that need to be read, are still being written and still being published.
Alternatives in publishing
To fill the gap, alternative, more fun and profitable (to the author) schemes to get your book published, have arrived on the publishing scene. There are some not so savory characters in the publishing business out there as well cashing in on this phenomenon.
Thus the paradigm shift
A new paradigm naturally appears to replace the old paradigm. The old paradigm, which is another way of saying, the old model of publishing, is a rusty relic, and is in crisis.
Javelina Booksis offering a free e-book called The Paradigm Shift in Publishing. The e-book takes a hard look this complicated business called book publishing, where it is now and where it is going.
The Paradigm Shift covers the 4 paths to getting your published - Traditional, Vanity, & Independent Publishing, plus a new paradigm in publishing, an idea we are calling the Partners in Publishing. Plus it speaks to the emergence of Digital Publishing, Kindle, etc, and POD, Print on Demand Publishing.
The Paradigm Shift is excerpted from the book Anatomy of a Novel - Action Steps for Making a Living from Your Book by Denniger Bolton, a book available now on Kindle and in p-book form in Summer, 2014. Denniger is also developing a seminar/workshop on the subject of writing, publishing and marketing your book and does coaching as well.
