10 Trends That Might Show The Future of Book Publishing

Come New Years day, I’ll have been writing this blog for three years.

So far, I’ve published 96 posts tagged “self-publishing”.

This post will make 97 and, if you take that last link, you’ll see it there (just scroll down to see the others; and, use the small link on the lower left, at the end of each page, to see older posts).

By the way, you may not realize there’s a place in the left side-bar (scroll past the pictures of readers of this blog and the map of where they come from) with the Top Tags I’ve used to categorize my posts—the larger the words, the more posts about that topic.

And, before I get on with this post about self-publishing, I need to mention the survey I have to capture Your ideas for what you want to see on this blog.

O.K., back to self-publishing which we’ll consider to be the future for books

In fact, in this post, it’s specifically self-published e-books that are considered The Future.

In just a bit I’ll be sharing a link to a slide presentation from Smashwords called, 10 Trends Driving The Future of Book Publishing.

And, Mark Coker, founder of Smashwords and creator of the slide presentation, should know quite a bit about the topic since his site is billed as “the world’s largest distributor of indie ebooks”.

Just before you consider what Mark has to say about the future of book publishing, I’m compelled to mention the company I use to help me self-publish—FastPencil :-)

    Glad you found it helpful :-)

    As far as a plan, you might want to check the Top Tags widget in the left side-bar for topics; or, just plunk words into the search bar on the upper right
