It’s that time again, notes from the most recent Authors Guild Bulletin. I always get excited when a new copy arrives at Red Sofa Literary, as there’s always a guarantee it’ll be full of good information.
For those who haven’t been reading the news about the Department of Justice and its anti-trust actions against several publishers, then it’s time you did. A quick search on Twitter, Publishers Weekly, Google and more will provide more information than could even be imagined. Afterwards, let your fingers do the walking to pg. 6 of the Fall 2011/Winter 2012 Authors Guild Bulletin. (Talk about impeccable timing!)
Other things appreciated in the newest bulletin:
- Guild Previews Booktalk Nation – by Karen Holt
- Of Digital Parasites and Culture: An Interview with Robert Levine – by Isabel Howe. I can’t emphasize enough that everyone needs to read this article. If you’re concerned about the future of books and publishing, it’ll be worth the read.
- A quote from the Guardian, “The roots writers put down later in life often outweigh the accidents of birth.” Yes!!!
Thoughts, questions, comments? Let’s discuss. . .
