Hot Sheet Live
What do authors really need to know about publishing industry issues? Journalist Porter Anderson created The Hot Sheet with Jane Friedman to provide authors with a way of keeping up with industry news in a concise, understandable, and actionable format—one that enables you to focus on your writing without missing out on the most important events shaping the business. In this session, Anderson looks at some of the key issues in the industry that authors need to assess, and takes questions on current developments—all with The Hot Sheet's standard promise: "no drama, no hype." From trade publishing's contract standoff with the Authors Guild to self-publishing's new quality control demands from Amazon, these are the type issues that authors spend hours combing through blogs to understand. Cutting through the confusion and recommending rational approaches to issues of the day is the goal, and your precise concerns (discoverability? marketing? strategies?) are the point of this entertaining and upbeat session. Join us for an hour of guidance, not gossip, and analysis, not agenda.
