Finding the Right Publishing Path for Your Book

Ricardo Fayet explores all the options available to authors and help you decide what the best one is for your book.

Most writers dream of being signed by a top NY literary agency and immediately getting a book deal from Penguin Random House. While this is not likely to happen, it also isn’t necessarily the ideal publication path for every author.

Not only has self-publishing consolidated itself as a viable alternative, but many in-between and hybrid options have emerged: digital-first and digital-only imprints, hybrid publishers, agent-assisted publishing imprints, and crowdfunding publishers, to name a few. Authors now have more opportunities than ever, but must also be careful to avoid wasting their time and money on scams.

In this webinar, Reedsy co-founder Ricardo Fayet will explore all the options available to authors and help you decide what the best one is for your book.

The webinar includes an extensive Q&A session, where you will have all your questions answered.
