With the rise of e-publishing, print on demand and other routes to self-publishing, not to mention the ongoing travails of traditional publishing (read Ewan Morrison’s interesting but sobering presentation to the Edinburgh book festival, reproduced by The Guardian), is there any longer a point in sending your beloved MS off to an agent or publisher? (Answer: yes).
Join me and assorted agents, authors and publishers at The Phoenix in London this Saturday (12-4) to discuss these and other subjects related to self-publishing. As someone who considered self-publishing but then went down the traditional route, I might have differing views to my fellows on the panel, but hopefully it won’t all end in bloodshed.

P.S. Whichever route you eventually take, you should probably be made aware that anyone who enters publishing solely or primarily for monetary gain is a fecking whore.
