Hot Links Saturday -- Top 5 Publishing Links
This is from Publisher's Weekly...yes, that Publisher's Weekly. When I started publishing PW wouldn't put Self and Publishing together in the same sentence let alone write a preview about authors. So the article itself is kind of amazing but the content is interesting also...
The purchase of Author Solutions by big publishers was one of those things I knew would fail. I think they thought droves of indie authors would flood the business with a Big 5 name attached to it, but the problem is pricing...and indie authors probably caught onto the fact that using them wouldn't lead to a big 5 contract. So, I think this is as it should be. Amazon wins? No...I don't think so. Not from this anyway.
I'm not a die-hard fan although I like some of his books, especially those for my son. But this article is spot on. Definitely one to read.
I wondered whether this was a trick statement. It's not. Check it out.
