S.D. Skye's Hell or High Water 365 Day Blogathon Day 169 -- Hot Links Saturday

Hot Links Saturday -- Week's Top Five Publishing Stories

More Publishers Fail as E-Books Rise 

We've heard similar stories in the United States but this is actually from the UK. Interesting that the impact of ebooks is being viewed largely the same way. 

Writers on the Pain of Hindsight in Publishing

"If I knew then what I know now..." is an idea that haunts writers the world over. If I could write Book 1 of the J.J. McCall series today, it would be much different than the version three years ago. You live and you learn and, if you're doing what you're supposed to do and continually learning, then you will inevitably look back on some of your work wishing you could change a thing or two. This is a very good article to read. You're not alone. 

J.K. Rowling Loved Publishers' Rejection Letters 

Yes, it's easy to love them when you're a billionaire writer already...but this is a cute story. 

Want to Succeed in Self-Publishing? Have a Plan 

More tips from an indie author. Nothing particularly new but always good to reinforce. 

Author Day: Writers are Divided into Two Camps 

This is an interesting article. There are some indies who have had bad experience with traditional publishers and rejection that might hold grudges and those traditionally published authors who look down on indies.  For me, I don't think there's an US against Them environment in publishing (Traditional vs Publishing) so much as "This works for me and that doesn't." It's a nuance but I think there is a difference.
