The Publishing Apocalypse

Random House is merging with Penguin. The Department of Justice has sued to change the way books are sold. Traditional publishers are providing services for self-publishers. And agents are becoming publishers. To quote Battlestar Galactica, "What the frack is going on?" Join veteran literary agent, author coach, and publisher Andrew Zack as he tries to sort it all out and provide authors with guidance on the best way to get published. From the traditional to the guerilla, he'll take a look at it all.

Andrew Zack is president of The Zack Company, Inc., a literary agency, and Author Coach, LLC, an author coaching and editorial consultation service, as well as publisher of Endpapers Press. A publishing veteran with nearly a quarter-century in the publishing business, Andy has worked in-house and freelance for many major publishers. He began his literary agent career at Scovil Chichak Galen Literary Agency in New York, and started his own firm in 1996. In 2006, he moved to San Diego, CA. His areas of interest for both TZC and AC are wide and varied, covering nearly all areas of fiction and nonfiction. A complete list of representation areas can be found at www.zackcompany.com. Those interested in author coaching services or managed self-publishing options should visit www.authorcoach.com.
