In this Q&A session, authors J David Simons and Alice Jolly will discuss various ways of getting published beyond the mainstream, such as self-publishing or working with smaller independents, hybrid models and crowdfunders such as Unbound.
Will it be easy to arrange distribution? How will you get discovered? How much will it cost? This will be an opportunity to mine the knowledge of two established authors who have had a variety of publishing experiences, so come prepared with lots of questions for David and Alice.
