Shaun and Moses discuss a variety of publishing news topics. We recorded this several weeks ago, so we confess that these stories may have been updated since then. Also, Moses answers a question about dictation.
Michael A. Stackpole sat down with our Moses Siregar at World Fantasy 2011 to discuss his controversial “House Slave” blog posts. Do publishers treat their writers as little more than slaves, and are writers making a big mistake by working with publishers? Listen to hear Michael’s thoughts. Also, they discuss Christmas of 2011 possibly being the final big gasp of publishing, the qualified buyer, the J.K. Rowling demographic, the future of bookstores and more.
The first of our World Fantasy Convention 2011 interviews features agent Joshua Bilmes, the President of JABberwocky Literary Agency. Moses spoke with Joshua about his recent blog post that discusses whether ebooks are killing the publishing industry, which led to some discussion of agency model ebook pricing.
