Wondering where the independent publishing revolution is headed in the new year of 2016? Longtime BAIPA member Lee Foster has written an intriguing post on his website, describing many aspects of this revolution in publishing that have occurred here in the Bay Area. Lee was in fact one of the pioneers on the front lines.
An image expressing our ever-changing times is on the cover of Lee’s CD-ROM travel guidebook from 1993, California Travel. This “product” had 1,000 photos accompanying the text, a feat that had never been possible in the “print” era up to that time. Lee’s latest book, focused on the current “self-publishing” trend, is An Author’s Perspective on Independent Publishing: Why Self-Publishing May be Your Best Option.
