My chapter on crowdfunding and small publishers in forthcoming book

Very pleased to receive an advance copy in the mail of Book Publishing in Australia: A Living Legacy, edited by Millicent Weber and Aaron Mannion, which will be published by Monash University Publishing next month, but officially launched at the Small Press Network Conference in Melbourne in November. I have a chapter in this book, entitled ‘Crowdfunding and Small Publishers’, which after a general overview of how crowdfunding has operated in the past and now, looks at the particular recent experiences of three small publishers: Dirt Lane Press, Gumbootspearlz Press, and our own Christmas Press, all of whom used crowdfunding for individual projects.

The book also has many other chapters, on topics ranging from literary prizes to contracts to regional book clubs, to gender effects on speculative fiction and publishing as apprenticeship, and more, written by scholars and practitioners alike. It should appeal to anyone interested in publishing and the professional aspects of literature in Australia. Look out for it in November!
