ComicCon@Home Panel: The Four Quadrants of Publishing

Comic Con asked me to moderate a publishing panel for the online version of the Con this year. So I got on Zoom with 5 bestselling authors to talk about THE FOUR QUADRANTS OF PUBLISHING: The Big Fix/Six, Traditional Small Press, Print on Demand/Ebook Press, and Self-Publishing and the Pros and Cons of each. The ensuing discussion should be useful as you consider the career you want to pursue. Enjo

" He’s had a couple good ones in there, like LONGEST RIDE, but yeah, mostly I agree. BEST OF ME and TWO BY TWO were particularly sluggish. "

Nicholas Sparks shared a note and highlight from
A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
When I was seventeen, my life changed forever.
I wish every book poured out of me as easily as this one. When my agent went away on her honeymoon, I was struggling with a novel that I ultimately never completed. When she returned after 3 weeks, I had written an entirely new book! See all my Notes and Highlights: https://www.goodreads.com/notes/8721294-nicholas-sparks My latest novel, THE RETURN, will be released on 9/29. Make sure to add it to your Want to read shelf: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/49405179-the-return

Brittany I would like to extend an invitation to you to join my goodreads group. My goal is to find an enjoyable place to visit to find all of the things you want in a group. We have a lot of group and buddy read options and are constantly adding more read & review opportunities, if you enjoy challenges and posting of free ebooks, as well as author participated discussions, then come on over to For Love of A Book, where every group matter has the power to help shape the group into the best it can be.
