With major publishing houses investing more in severance pay than in new authors, the challenge of the first-time novelist to see their work on retail bookshelves has never been greater.
As a result, an increasing number of new and established authors are venturing into the self-publishing arena. By taking advantage of free online social media promotion and earning profits on what can be a low-cost venture, these self-starters help legitimize this much-stigmatized sector of the publishing industry.
Author Richard S. Todd reads from Raincloud, his critically acclaimed self-published mystery thriller, and discusses the developing self-publishing world as part of his Raincloud Reading Series, taking place in and around the Greater Toronto Area, Canada. Dates have been booked for Bradford, Richmond Hill, and Aurora, with Barrie, Toronto, and other locations to follow.
