So, you want to publish a book, huh?

Taking a small break this morning from my usual blah blah blahing about the Bible and such, this post about the present (and future) of book publishing might be of interest to you.

This post appeared on the Creative Trust Literary Group website a few months ago, which is the agency I signed on with last year to help me in my quest to dominate the universe with my thoughts on God, Jesus, and the Bible. They suggested I dial down my goals a bit to something more doable and less stupid, but I signed on with them anyway.

One of the mains points of the essay, which is no secret, is the impact of  “the rapid rise of social media and digital distribution and the slow demise of traditional advertising and brick and mortar retail.”  For those of us who want to write and publish books, getting a handle on these changes is huge.
