Pathways to Publishing:
A New Wilderness Journey

8:00AM - 12:00 NOON

American publishing has both consolidated and expanded.  What was once the Big Six has now become the Not So Big Four and Kindle Direct Publishing has opened an indie world with its own advantages and disadvantages.  Meanwhile, mid-size publishing has stepped into the gap with hundreds of opportunities to publish as long as you are aware of what you will and won't receive.  Meanwhile, the United States is publishing more than 300,000 books per year and reading is up 35% since the pandemic began.  Much is new to know and we will explore these pathways and their perils, pitfalls and promises.
