Thank you to everyone who attended our 2022 Tucson Festival of Books booth!

After two years of the pandemic preventing an in-person Festival, everyone came in full force. We are grateful to our authors, the Festival organizers, the University of Arizona, and everyone who showed up for a fantastic 2022 Tucson Festival of Books!

In addition to making new connections and meeting with old friends, our authors sold a lot of books—and that’s thanks to all of you.

We can’t wait to see you all again next year! And hopefully see some new faces as well.

For years I’ve given a talk called “Three Ways to Publish,” in which I describe the three main paths to publication: selling your book to a rights-buying “traditional” publisher, hiring a publishing services firm like Wheatmark to publish your book, or starting a publishing company of your own (self-publishing). Over the past few years the lines between these paths have become increasingly blurred:

  • The largest retailer of books in the world, Amazon, carries nearly every traditionally and self-published book equally
  • Authors with successful self-published books are often picked up by traditional publishing houses
  • Successful authors often dump their traditional publishing houses in favor of going “indie”
  • Publicists, editors, agents, and book marketing professionals who used to work exclusively for traditional publishers now routinely offer their services to publishing services firms and indie authors
