The global publishing market has never been more exciting, and every day myriad publishing stories cross my screen that I’d love to develop here at TNPS, but there simply isn’t time.
They do make the TNPS twitter feed. Follow TNPS on twitter here: @thenewpubstd.
But twitter is an ephemeral beast. Blink and you miss it.
Still, if you’re reading TNPS in the first place you probably share my obsession with all things international publishing, and won’t want to miss these stories.
So here, as a reminder that, while we all tend to focus on the easy access markets close to home, the global publishing industry getting along just fine without us, is today’s collation of some of the best recent publishing stories around the web.
And yes, as always, there’s slightly more than ten.
Global – The patronising subtext is: “Sorry, you’re not good enough for mainstream but don’t lose heart we’ll create a separate one for people like you.”
Germany – Liebeskind and Verlag Antje Kunstmann: Independent Publishers in a Shifting German Marketplace.
Africa – Must Literature from Africa and the third World be Self-deprecating to earn Booker Recognition?
