A Bookstore Takes The Expendable Man & I Give a Talk on Self-Publishing

March 19, 2012 § Leave a comment

Tucson Area Friends: If you don’t already have a copy of The Expendable Man, you can obtain one at Antigone Books on 411 4th Avenue, and if you already have a copy, tell your friends. Also, if you need a gift for an upcoming occasion, remember books make wonderful gifts.

Self-Publishing: What it Means for Writers and Readers: That’s the title of a talk I’ll be giving tomorrow at a meeting of the Province Book Club in Maricopa.

What’s the talk about? The future of the publishing industry is on a lot of minds these days. Writers in particular are concerned about whether traditional publishing will shrink even further, whether the uneven quality of many self-published books will turn off readers, and whether they’ll be able to make a living doing what they love. Readers wonder if bookstores will disappear, if everyone will need a Kindle and how they should go about finding books they’ll enjoy reading. I try to put it all in perspective, helping people see the positive and not so positive impact changes in technology are having.

If you can’t attend, you can always invite me to give the talk to your book club or organization either in person or through the Internet. Use the contact form on this website to begin that discussion.
