From Traditional to Independent Publisher/Author

Award-winning author, W. Nikola-Lisa, whose books have been published by Atheneum, Henry Holt, Simon & Schuster, Lee & Low, and Hyperion to name a few, decided to step away from traditional publishing and forge a new path. By publishing independently he can orchestrate his own promotion and write the books he’s passionate about. Nikola-Lisa started Gyroscope Books. His latest project is Dog Eared: A Year’s Romp Through the Self-Publishing World, scheduled for release Sept. 7, 2017, where he writes about the place of physical books in an ever-increasing digital age, the impact of social media on publishing’s rapidly-changing landscape, the skill set an author needs to survive in today’s publishing world.
