Diane Wolfe's presentation was valuable

Diane Wolfe presentation — “How to Publish a Book”

I attended a workshop led by Diane Wolfe, who presented many salient ideas about book publishing.

Here are the main points which were important for me:

  • E-books are the future. Right now about 20% of the book sales are e-book. Diane predicts this will change to nearly 80% in the next decade.
  • Publishers will shy away (or not touch at all) a manuscript which has been published on a blog. Publishers consider a blog entry a publication. Thus, based on this information, I cannot blog my chapters as I write my next book.
  • New authors need to stay in the 80,000 – 90,000 word range (unless their genre averages more, or less).
