The Adaptable Author: Coping With Change in the Digital Age

ISBN  9780987488329
Reviewed by Hazel Edwards

Highly recommended for any author intending to stay published today. Realistic strategies from a range of 40 interviewees, local and international. Reassuring to hear the challenges and solutions by well known, long term writers as well as some more recent professionals. Quality work, keeping up to date with new formats and being willing to try new ways of reaching readers but being 'professional' in outlook were common themes. 

Sophie Masson is an excellent example of an innovative and adaptable author too. Part 3 has a summary of the practical successful strategies for a long career. Re-inventing yourself under a pseudonym is one I'm considering.
