Small-Scale Publishers Carve Niches in Digital Age
The digital revolution has written a nail-biting new chapter for book publishers. E-books are overtaking their paper-bound counterparts as bookstores vanish and Amazon.com inflicts unrelenting price pressure on a time-honored trade.
For all the upheaval, however, little has changed at Milwaukee-based Henschel HAUS Publishing Inc.
"Regardless whether it's an e-book, a print book or an audiobook, it still needs to be edited, it still needs formatting, it still needs a compelling cover," said Kira Henschel, the one-woman founder, owner, agent, editor and writing coach of the 12-year-old publishing house.
