2015 Publishing Industry Forecast with Joey Pinkney

Do you plan to write a book this year? Good for you! I want to be able to give you information that will help you along the way.

As a fellow writer, I understand the need to be up to date about what’s going on in the publishing world. What are some of the trends we can expect? How will the indie author movement continue to evolve the industry? What writers do to become more visible? These are just some of the thing we will be discussing on this episode of the Write Stuff with Joey Pinkney.

8831_1158112086513_1139224_nHello. My name is Joey Pinkney, and I write and maintain JoeyPinkney.comto feature book reviews and author interviews. My goal is to give authors extra exposure. I started JoeyPinkney.com on June 2006 to do something constructive with my obsession with the internet. At first, I used my site as a vehicle to write about things such as weight loss and acne prevention, among other things. My site has slowly transitioned into what you see now – strictly about books and authors.

I use this website in conjunction with social media websites to spread the word about different authors and books that I come into contact with. This is a perfect way to have a central place to see the various authors and books that are available while also using the power of Web2.0 to generate a global level of exposure.

The JoeyPinkney.com “5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…” Author Interview Series has been a labor of love. This series has featured self-published authors and authors from the major publishing houses, virtually unknown authors to Essence and/or New York Times Best Sellers, male and female,urban lit to science fiction to nonfiction to poetry.

The “5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…” author interview series gives the authors a chance to explain their book from their perspective. The reader gets a behind-the-scene look at what it took to make the book what it is. What used to be a primarily African-American vehicle for literary promotions now includes authors from Canada, the U.K., Ireland and even Australia! I look forward to featuring more authors from more countries in the future.
