How is book publishing divided today? Let’s not count the ways.
Outsiders looking into this beleaguered industry, however, might be surprised at the reticence many authors and publishers can have about each other. Maybe about being around each other. Meeting each other. Talking more than friendly chitchat or cover design with each other.
Make no mistake, everybody has a perfect right to be on edge. After years of progress, this is a business still working hard to find a sustainable place in the digital arts-and-entertainment rocket ship of the future.
