BookExpo America ends. Changes in publishing begin. From @wtcommunities

Every business is evolving to new forms of communication and new opportunities. Publishing is no excpetion. As more opportunities for self-promotion and self-publishing emerge there will be more options for authors.

Publishers still provide a wealth of support, credibility and expertise. Much like record labels, I can't see them going away completely but I can see them adapting formats and practices to fit a changing landscape. In other words, adapt or die. Publishers are smart. They will figure out how to remain relevant.

New York Times best-selling author Michael Levin thinks otherwise. He runs BusinessGhost and has written with Baseball Hall of Famer Dave Winfield, football broadcasting legend Pat Summerall, FBI undercover agent Joaquin Garcia, and E-Myth creator Michael Gerber. He has written for the New York TimesThe Wall Street JournalCBS News, the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, and many other top outlets.
