The indie publishing movement continues to expand author and reader opportunities at an astounding rate. Music and film set the precedent for this indie movement, and publishing has certainly embraced it.
Bloomington, Indiana (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
Author Solutions, LLC, a Penguin Random House company and the world leader in indie book publishing, announced Monday that Keith Ogorek, senior vice president of marketing, will join industry leaders on a panel titled “The New Frontier of Self-Publishing,” at the Writer’s Digest Self-Publishing Conference Friday, September 27 at 2:40 pm PDT at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.
The WD Self-Publishing Conference is part of the Writer’s Digest West Conference, which runs from September 27–29 at the same location.
Ogorek and a group of industry experts and insiders will discuss the future of self-publishing and how continued growth and changes will affect authors. Topics on the agenda include the adoption of the self-publishing model by traditional publishers and the power shift toward authors. The panel will be moderated by Writer’s Digest publisher Phil Sexton, who worked with Author Solutions in 2011 to develop a self-publishing partnership called Abbott Press.
“The indie publishing movement continues to expand author and reader opportunities at an astounding rate,” said Ogorek. “Music and film set the precedent for this indie movement, and publishing has certainly embraced it.”
The WD Self-Publishing Conference is making its West Coast debut after the inaugural edition was held as part of the Writer’s Digest Conference East last February in New York City. Sexton stated at the time that the Self-Publishing track was added “to help writers learn the tools necessary to launch a book that sells, regardless of the method chosen to publish it.” Registration and conference information can be found at writersdigestconference.com.
