The Uprising in Book Publishing

What happens when authors lose faith in Big Publishers? This presentation explores the coming revolution in book publishing, and examines the impact of what will happen when authors ask the simple question, "what can a publisher do for me that I can't already do for myself?"

Warning:  This presentation tackles the Egyptian Revolution, politics, religion, money, dinosaurs, ebooks, paranormal romance and the future of book publishing, so if the amalgamation of such disparate topics strikes you as blasphemous,  click here for a video of cute happy bunnies . The 15,000 authors and publishers who use Smashwords to publish and distribute over 36,000 ebooks stand to benefit from the events now unfolding in publishing.  If they benefit, I benefit because Smashwords is an ebook distributor. Therefore, my opinions are biased. I have enormous respect for professional publishers and the passionate people who work in the field.  The business of BIG PUBLISHING may be broken, but the people in publishing are not.  Publishing is not dead.  These good people are hard at work this very moment rewriting the next chapter of book publishing for the benefit of all humanity.
