21 David Farland: Authors and New Media

    Tonight we were privileged to once again recieve a word from our Sponsor, David Farland. For this call, David was kind enough to illuminate for us the un charted waters of New Media, or "non traditional" media (Internet related media and e books) and how these new forms of information collection and distribution are already (and will potentially) change publishing as an industry and novel and short-story writing as a career.

    Some of tonight's topics of discussion were:
    • Potential benefits and challenges of New Media for both established and aspiring authors.
    • Being more than an author: other facets of e publishing that are involved in publishing a book the New Media route.
    • Market trends: Where will they go?
    For over an hour of discussion about this game changing development in the publishing world from a true industry professional, just push "Play".

    1. Really great call. Dave was insightful as always. I can't wait to see how his publishing company pans out.

      Good job, Mike, handling the interview.
