Sacramento, Calif. (Vocus) November 4, 2010
November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo - http://www.nanowrimo.org/ ), a project that brings writers together from around the world to quit procrastinating and just write that first or even second book. In recognition of National Novel Writing Month, 3L Publishing is announcing the official launch of its new book Vanity Circus: A Smart Girl’s Guide to Avoid Publishing Crap.
Vanity Circus is written to get authors not only excited about writing their books, but also to take it one step further and understand the publishing business. Vanity Circus provides an often humorous and informative overview of the current publishing industry, from self-publishing to traditional publishing. It also describes what 3L Publishing refers to as the New Publishing, which is a hybrid business model that combines the best of self-publishing with traditional publishing to broaden authors choices.
“Most authors consider themselves artists,” said Michelle Gamble-Risley, president of 3L Publishing. “They often don’t know that much about publishing and the business side. Publishing today has changed – and more choices exist than ever before to get your book published. As a result, we have authors who come to 3L Publishing totally confused about what do to get their books finished. We wrote Vanity Circus with the desire to educate authors and help them make informed choices."
Gamble-Risley and her co-author Michele Smith, CEO of 3L, will be doing workshops throughout the year to discuss today’s publishing. Gamble-Risley will be at Borders in Roseville on November 6 at a writer’s workshop that starts at 10:00 a.m. The women will also be holding a 3L Author’s Day at that same Borders on December 4 at 1:00 p.m. They also host a monthly writer’s group on the last Thursday of the month at Palare Euro Lounge titled Writers Who Mean Business, which is focused on the business side of publishing.
Vanity Circus is available on Amazon and the 3L Website at http://www.3LPublishing.com, and at select bookstores. For more information, contact Michele Smith at 916-502-1661 or michele(at)mcommunicationsinc(dot)com
