What does it mean to publish in 2015?

Self-publishing-vs-traditional-publishing

For a long time Traditional Publishing was known as the only single equation that all authors had to learn in order to get published. The equation was:

Complete manuscript + query letter + submission = consideration for publishing

For many of the big houses, this is still the traditional way to embark into the world of traditional publishing. For many, including myself, we are brought up as this being the only way to truly see our books out into the hands of others around the world.

However, this is 2015 and there are more ways to publish then ever before.

I look forward to reviewing the options authors have and learning something new along the way.  Look forward to the first post, Traditional Publishing coming soon…
