The ever-changing world of books: writing, publishing and being discovered
The book world is changing. More books are being published than ever before. Independent booksellers are becoming popular again. Borders is long gone. Amazon is the elephant in the room. Sales of e-books have peaked, and prices for e-books from New York publishers are fetching top dollar. Readership is down, book discovery tools are expanding. Books are now apps, and apps are now books. E-books have videos, and some paper novels have gone graphic. Confused? Don’t be.
Northern California Publishers & Authors is here supporting authors, indie publishers, self-publishers, and the publishing industry in the expansive region of Northern California. Want answers to your self-publishing questions? Want to connect with experienced, publishing professionals? Come to one of our monthly meetings. Seeking recognition for your recently published book? Enter our book contest. Need a speaker for your event? Look over a list of authors who can speak at your meeting, conference, or luncheon. Need access to resources, articles and publishing tips? Join our professional network of authors and publishers.
We invite you to explore. Join us, so we can help you with your questions about publishing, becoming an author, the craft of writing, editing, layout, book cover design, ISBNs, CreateSpace, IngramSpark, audio books, print-on-demand publishing, literary agents, distributors, printing, marketing – even how to sign your books when they hit the market.
