PUBLISHING TODAY… AND TOMORROW?
Here are some excellent links I thought other writers/independent publishers might find interesting.
The first, from The Spectator, The Civil War For Books Where Is The Money Going should be read by every writer whether committed to independent publishing or courting traditional publishers. It’s always good to know what tunes the devil is playing… 😉
The second, Publishing’s Digital Disruption Hasn’t Even Started, by Gareth Cuddy is an interesting comparison of the publishing industry with other creative industries that have suffered digital upheaval and where we might be heading.
Also, to add a bit of perspective, here is a link on What Authors Really Think of Publishers — some interesting facts and figures here too.
I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions about publishing today and the big names that dominate it. Just thought these were worth sharing.
