SELF-PUBLISHING AND THE FUTURE OF WRITING
The world of writing is changing rapidly for both new and established authors. No longer bound by old rules or control of giant publishing houses, writers today have new and exciting options, thanks to technology such as Amazon’s Kindle eReader. Writer Michael Grumley, who has used Amazon’s platform to publish an impressive array of books, will look at what this new world means for aspiring writers. Learn the true ins and outs of self-publishing, what to do and what not to do, and why going it alone can give you a much greater edge than you ever thought. Michael lives in Northern California and works in the information technology field. For years, he dreamed of writing thrillers the way he thought they should be written—as complex, multi-genre stories with unique plots that move. Enter BREAKTHROUGH, AMID THE SHADOWS, and THROUGH THE FOG: all deeply human stories with endings you will never see coming. His website is http://www.michaelgrumley.com.
