Hot Links Saturday -- Week's Top Publishing Articles
One author's experience in going from indie to traditional. Some interesting insights.
You'd think this would be common sense, but perhaps sometimes it needs to be stated...and restated.
An excellent piece of advice. Leave the emotion on the pages of your book. Once it's written, it's business. Worth the read...and restatement.
This article questions whether ebook sales have suffered because of high prices set by publishers. My answer to that: Uh...Duh! Of course. It's all part of the plan to keep print alive and their stronghold on the market. Is it right or wrong? I can't say. But it's definitely their business.
Interesting article. I've gotten my share of rude rejections, mostly from literary agents. And I REMEMBER them. I'm sure a lot of authors do. Probably most. But most of the successful bestselling indie authors speak of rude rejections from publishers and agents. It's a shame to burn a bridge when you might one day in the future might like to cross it again. I hope the industry in general takes heed (they won't but we can always hope).
