Traditional Publishing vs. Indie.

I’ll be moderating a panel of local Indie authors and owners of small independent presses:

Rory C Keel, author and owner of Carpe Diem Publshing

Ryan McSwain, Indie Author

Vicki Schoen, author and owner of Yellow City Publishing

Me as Moderator. Indie Author and owner, small independent press NKB Books, LLC.

Take off your funky creative cap and put on your business suit; publishing your book is a business. We will look at industry statistics and discuss the status of publishing in today’s environment. I’ll be asking our panel questions which will cover the entire process from idea spark to book-in-hand. We’ll find out why they went Indie, the parts they enjoy about this business, how to budget time, what they got right, and the worst mistakes made along the way. Join us for a lively discussion.

I hope to see you at 10:00 AM, at the Chase Tower (9th Floor Ed Davis Room), in downtown Amarillo, on July 21. Bring pen, notebook and all questions. Should be a fun and lively discussion.
