Austin’s Indie Author Society continues to thrive, Book in a Box has us self publishing, and the WordPress meetup has nearly eclipsed 3,000 professionals!

How are jobs for writers changing? Whether you’re an author, copywriter, blogger, editor, publisher, or technical professional working on behalf of those who write, we want to figure out the trend.

    Formerly focused strictly on marketing, I became the Editor-in-chief in 2010 of one of the fastest growing digital magazines, and was then promoted to Chief Operating Officer in 2012. The down market has pushed us to work harder and faster, and we have an extremely competitive streak inside every one of us on the team.

    I co-founded and lead Rivet. Our mission is to transform people's everyday experiences by generating and displaying the authentic and riveting experiences of other people right where you and I are most likely to benefit from it -- right in the websites, stores, and social channels of businesses themselves. We call this C2C (consumer-2-consumer) marketing which will replace billions of online ads and millions of tons of junk mail in the next decade. It's good for consumers, it's good for business, and it's good for the earth.
