Publishing: Indie vs. Traditional

In today’s quickly evolving and exciting world of publishing, aspiring authors have more options than ever before. Join national-award winning Fantasy author and screenwriter K.M. Rice (Darkling) and national bestselling Romance author Marina Adair (St. Helena Vineyards Series) for a discussion about how each local has achieved success in independent and traditional publishing, and how it’s possible to combine the two. The panel will open up to Q&A so come find out which route is best for you!

With the rise of crowdfunding and the inclusion of tech in fandom, geeks have the ability to forge careers for themselves like never before. Join Legion M Head of Development David Baxter, XSN CEO Justin Sewell, and independent author/contractor K.M.
