OK so Friday is here, Finally!
Long week for me, and certainly not the best week of my life, but hey shit happens.
So, without further ado. . .
You can’t escape this one, lots of blogs have mentioned this: Moonrat over on Editorial Ass had a funny, but ultimately sad tale. When the author, and their agent were taken out for lunch by an editor, the author demonstrated their severe lack of social skills.
Janet Reid covered it very humorously indeed, with what she would have done it she had been the unfortunate agent, and how she would have dealt with the author.
Nathan has a lively comments section going, as usual, this week on new ways of marketing books. Some interesting ideas there, and let’s not kid ourselves, publishing is far from the traditional animal it once was.
With all the doom and gloom in the publishing world, there is at least some good news! Bookseller reports that HMV and Zavvi are ramping up their book offerings. And, Waterstone's is about to announce four new stores.
That’s not it for this week, I’ll be blogging on Sunday, though not an Saturday as I am off.
Have a great weekend!
