Crowdsourcing: Publishing’s Holy Grail?
Crowd Creativity, Crowdfunding

The publishing industry is notoriously hard to crack. Every single day, thousands and thousands of aspiring writers decide to flood the mailboxes (and now inboxes) of editors and agents around the world with their newly completed manuscripts. From there, they are either manually or virtually thrown in to what is known as the slush pile, and, right or wrong, a rejection letter promptly follows. 

But this new digital age is a game-changer. The introduction of e-books, e-readers, and web publishers has revolutionized both the production and the consumption of books, forcing the big players in the publishing industry to shape up or ship out. New writers and established authors alike are easily able to share their work with the masses via self-published e-books and hard copies — with or without the backing of a publishing house. 

Now add in crowdsourcing and the possibilities are endless. There are several existing platforms (Kickstarter, for one) that allow the creative people of the world to get funded for a variety of projects, including authors who are seeking the means to self-publish. But what happens after the authors reach their monetary goal? Will they be able to navigate the self-publishing world alone and successfully market their work?
