This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In this highly insightful talk Gary provides us as insider account of what the book publishing industry is really like including the economics for a writer, the "Bestseller Creation Myth"and the promise of a newly emerging publishing model being facilitated by Amazon.

Gary Smailes was an executive in the pharmaceutical industry and the one thing he was certain of was that he hated his job. He rolled the dice, resigned and pursued his passion for writing and history. Gary then has a chance encounter that leads him to becoming a researcher on the hit series of "Horrible Histories" books. This valuable break provides the platform for Gary to completely re-engineer his career and life.

Today, Gary Smailes is the Co-Founder and Editor at BubbleCow, a company providing publishing services to writers. He got his first break into the publishing world thanks to Terry Deary of Horrible Histories fame and is now a published writer with more than 20 books in print.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
