Mass Authorship And The Rise Of Self Publishing

Drawing on eight years of research and interviews with more than eighty self-published writers, Mass Authorship avoids the polemics, instead showing how writers are actually thinking about and dealing with this brave new world. Timothy Laquintano compares the experiences of self-publishing authors in three distinct genres--poker strategy guides, memoirs, and romance novels--as well as those of writers whose self-published works hit major bestseller lists. He finds that the significance of self-publishing and the challenge it presents to traditional publishing depend on the aims of authors, the desires of their readers, the affordances of their platforms, and the business plans of the companies that provide those platforms.

In 2012, the world arrived in London for the Olympics...and Ann Morgan went out to meet it. She read her way around all the globe’s 196 independent countries (plus one extra), sampling one book from every nation. It wasn't easy. Many languages have next to nothing translated into English; there are tiny, tucked-away places where very little is written down at all; some governments don't like to let works of art leak out to corrupt Westerners. Her literary adventures shed light on the issues that affect us all: personal, political, national and global. Using her quest as a starting point, this book explores questions such as: What is cultural heritage? How do we define national identity? Is it possible to overcome censorship and propaganda? And how can we celebrate, challenge and change our remarkable world?

**UPDATED SECOND EDITION** This book is for every author who's thinking about indie publishing, or has already taken the leap, and wonders why no one told them about the sharks, the life-sucking social media quicksand, or the best way to avoid sales-checking, yellow-spotted fever. This is a guide for the heart as much as the head. And because I promised myself that I wouldn't write a book about how I made a gazillion dollars publishing ebooks, I would write about the fear: owning it, overcoming it, facing it. From a person who didn't pursue a creative life for a long time, and then discovered creativity can set you free. Note: gazillion is a technical term, which in this case means something less than a million and more than the average income in my state. The Guide is intended to take a first-time-publishing author from those first tentative steps, through the leap, and into the great adventure of indie publishing. Already-published authors who want to jump-start lagging sales or launch a new series will also benefit from nuts-and-bolts marketing advice as well as inspiration for the long-haul of their publishing journey. Susan Kaye Quinn is the author of the Singularity Series, the Mindjack Trilogy and the Debt Collector serial (as well as other speculative fiction works) and has been indie publishing since 2011. She's not an indie rockstar or a breakout success: she's one of thousands of solidly midlist indie authors making a living with their works. This book is based on her experience in self-publishing fiction-the First Edition was published in 2013, the Second Edition in 2015, updated to account for changes in the industry. It's a guide to help her fellow writer-friends take their own leaps into the wild (and wonderful) world of indie publishing... and not only survive, but thrive. Coming Soon: For Love or Money: Crafting An Indie Author Career The Indie Author Survival Guide is designed to take a first-time-publishing author through the publication of their first indie book. For Love or Money looks at parlaying that first book into a career. TESTIMONIALS FOR THE GUIDE "I recently became an indie author. I was lucky enough to find this book at just the right time, and it became my bible. It's still the most useful how-to book on my writing shelf!" - Garrett Davis, author of Port Starbird "Indie publishing can be a jungle. Susan provides you with a map, a compass, and best of all, a machete to get through the tangles. Not only educational, it's inspirational and my go-to book whenever I feel lost." - Annetta Ribken, author of Still Not Nice or the Strange Planet Inside My Head "I regularly recommend this book to people who want to break into indie. Great advice, great community." - Kim Wells, author of Mariposa "I recommend The Indie Author Survival Guide to anyone who wants to enter self-publishing with a solid foundation. I discovered it a few years after I began my series and still learned a lot from it." - Patricia Gilliam, author of The Hannaria Series
