Hi everyone, I'm Martin. I eventually settled on a small/medium book publisher
, but I was told mine was "a bigger book" with more commercial aspirations and prestigious small publishers were interested in more literary tomes. My book will also be available from the UK book publisher
. I also learned that many small publishers were being wiped out by the "self-publishing
revolution," a movement that's not so unlike the "citizen journalism" or bloggers' revolt of recent years that's had a major impact on mainstream media, including this publication. The basic premise is anyone can become a small publisher. You call the shots. You retain the rights to your book. And you take home a bigger royalty than you'd normally get from a traditional publisher--if you sell any books.
