There have never been so many alternatives available to authors in publishing their works as they are today. Digital only publishers, traditional print first publishers, small presses, and publishers with specialized distribution networks are just some of the options now available. In the last year even self-publishing has achieved a level of respect and recognition far in excess of anything anyone could have predicted. The melding of roles and responsibilities and the myriad of choices mean that more than ever creators of intellectual properties need guidance as they chart today's new opportunities.
