Drawing on approaches from literary studies, media and cultural studies, book history, cultural policy, and the digital humanities, this book asks: What is the significance of authors communicating directly to readers via social media? How does digital media reframe the "live" author-reader encounter? And does the growing army of reader-reviewers signal an overdue democratizing of literary culture or the atomizing of cultural authority? In exploring these questions, The Digital Literary Sphere takes stock of epochal changes in the book industry while probing books’ and digital media’s complex contemporary coexistence.

A Seriously Useful Author S Guide To Marketing And Publicising Books

Gone are the times when most authors could relax and let their publisher sell their book for them. Nowadays, in a climate of increasing commercialisation, the majority of authors, both new and established, are discovering that they get no help at all. For the self-published (a rapidly expanding market) this has always been largely the case, but now nearly all authors are faced with the task of having to market and publicise their own book. The prospect is a daunting one, but without some form of self-input it is rare for any book to sell in significant quantities.However, exactly what needs to be done to generate sales, and to create a reputation for a book, is often a mystery. Thus, Seriously Useful aims to demystify the processes in a concise, lively, and highly readable way. Although primarily concerned with making sales, it also offers some very useful pre-publication advice, including the options and benefits of self-publishing. In addition it reveals some essential inside information on how the books trade works, so the author has an excellent understanding of their book’s journey from manuscript, to publisher, to wholesaler, to retailer, to reader. There are also some very useful contributions from other mainstream and self-published authors. Written by Mary Cavanagh, a novelist and short story writer, who has had first-hand experience of both mainstream and self-publishing. Her previous work includes The Crowded Bed (Transita 2007) and A Man Like Any Other – The Priest’s Tale (Matador 2008).
