Surviving The Transition: How Writers Can Thrive In The New World Of Publishing

Last year, I wrote a series of posts on how writers of all stripes can survive the transition from the old world of publishing to the new world of publishing. I’ve updated the posts and compiled them into an e-book called Surviving The Transition: How Writers Can Thrive In The New World Of Publishing. This book is for established writers, new writers, writers who want to stay in traditional publishing, and writers who never want to join traditional publishing.

Here’s the cover blurb:

Most writers run their careers the same way they did in the 1990s. But publishing has changed so much since then that any writer who works on the old model will no longer make a living. 

In this short book, international bestselling writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch shows you how to think about the new world of publishing, who to trust, and who not to trust. 

She also gives you a blueprint for survival—what to learn, what to ignore, and how to find help. If you are a successful professional writer—or hope to become one—then this book is for you. 

You can order the book in all e-bookstores, including Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords. If you want to read the older versions for free, click on this link and start with “Writing Like It’s 1999.”

  2. Just bought it. I’ve probably read all the posts before but I never use the tip jar. This gives me a chance to say thanks for all the info you and Dean give. This also makes it easier to find the information then searching your blog for half an hour.

  3. Like the others, I’ve read all of the columns, but picked up the book. Nice way to donate to you AND I get all your posts in one spot – on my Kobo!

  4. I bought the book as a thank you too, Kris. I appreciate all your insights and analysis of the publishing world.

    Buying this now as a thank you for all the work you do on this subject. Thanks, Kris!

    I recently put my first novella up on Kindle and Nook – still working on smash words… The next one goes up soon and I have 4 others written and will release as they are done. A big thanks to you and Dean and all you do.

  6. Yay! Got mine, even though I’ve read all the columns, and most more than once. This is knowledge no writer, traditional or indie, can afford to be without.

    Thanks, Kris!

  7. Congrats on the new project release! Nice cover, too. 🙂
