Amazon’s first bookstore in New York City sucks the joy out of buying books

Amazon’s first bookstore in New York City sucks the joy out of buying books | book publishing | Scoop.it
The joy of the bookstore lies in what might be called the analog experience of the physical space: Hushed page-flipping; the sound of two covers sliding against each other as a book is returned to its spot on the shelf; the quiet murmur of, "Have you read this one?" Luddites and Twitter junkies alike need insulation fro

3 Strategies for Marketing A Book Series - Digital Book World

I’m a cliffhanger reader by heart. I love to be left wondering what’s coming next, and yearning for the next part of the story. It’s an illness of sorts, I suppose. So when I wrote my first book, I wanted to write a series—a set of books that drops my readers off a cliff and pulls them to the next book. Cliffhangers are not a nasty marketing technique. They’re simply …

Publishers Are Becoming More Like Movie Studios Every Day | The Digital Reader

Publishers Are Becoming More Like Movie Studios Every Day | The Digital Reader | book publishing | Scoop.it
It has long been said that the major trade publishers are beginning to act more and more like big Hollywood studios in that the publishers only care about best-seller/blockbuster titles now and not the moderately profitable midlist. I've never been convinced of the truth of the premise, but The Guardian has inadvertently gathered a bunch of examples which show major publishers picking up the book rights to a novel at the same time that studios swoop in to acquire the movie rights. Last week The Guardian published an article about indie authors being snapped up by Hollywood. On first reading, it looks like the writer failed to notice that many of the mentioned titles are published by traditional publishers and that some (Fifty Shades in particular) had never been self-published in the first place. Digging into the background of the story, however, revealed a more interesting story. After watching Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, self-published author Mark Dawson was inspired to create his own answer to the film’s heroine Beatrix “Black Mamba” Kiddo. And now Dawson – and his character government-employed assassin Beatrix Rose – are set to take on Hollywood, with his series on the verge of a major television deal, complete with a “triple A” producer. ... Details of Dawson’s [...]
