The New York City Chapter of the Historical Novel Society presents this audio recording from November 1, 2023 on the many paths to publishing. Faith L. Justice (Twilight Empress: A Novel of Imperial Rome) is in conversation with authors Nancy Bilyeau (The Orchid Hour), Stephanie Cowell (The Boy in the Rain), Loretta Goldberg (The Reversible Mask) and Susan Wands (Magician and Fool) about their experiences with large press, small press, hybrid, and indie publishing. They discuss how they came to their path, what kinds of contracts and production support they negotiated, pre- and post-publication marketing, and much more in the program for up and coming writers.
