Nathan Bransford has been getting some queries from people about when to tell your agent certain things, like if you had a previous agent, other offers etc and he’s been kind enough to answer them.
And continuing on from yesterday’s post, if you want to hear an author’s opinion about free content and the publishing industry, then head over to HarperStudio where they have interviewed Seth Godin, author of Tribes: We Need you to Lead us.
He says, “Publishing is far too focused on the pub day. The event of the publication. This is a tiny drip, perhaps the least important moment in a long timeline. As soon as publishers see themselves as marketers and agents and managers and developers of content, things change.”
If you’ve read The Book is Dead then you might feel the same way. I know I do.
