What Writers Need to Know About Publishing

Jerry Simmons will be joining us on Writers in the Sky Podcast June 6th, 2008!


…there is a difference between a writer and an author. There’s also a difference a between a published author and a successfully published author and it has nothing to do with publishing method?
…publishers are signing fewer and fewer titles and authors these days?
…there are several imprints, but only a few big houses. Who owns the big houses?
…large retail booksellers have such power that they can dictate terms such as the right to purchase an author’s book for 55% off retail and retain the ability to return any unsold books for a full refund?
… doesn’t want your book if you didn’t publish with Booksurge?
