Genre Fiction and Digital Publishing: A Marriage Made in Heaven

Genre Fiction and Digital Publishing: A Marriage Made in Heaven | Litteris | Scoop.it

Along with the continuing growth of digital publishing (numbers for 2012 showed a 44.2% increase over 2011) has come, according to Wired.com, an increased focus on so-called “genre” fiction – sci-fi, fantasy, mystery and romance. Markets, which Graeme McMillan points out, “have traditionally lagged behind ‘literary fiction’ in terms of sales.” [Editor's Note: We disagree with this assertion. Romance, in particular has always had strong sales and often dominates the fiction market in real terms.]

Speaking of bringing things back from the dead (see the post below this one for some cool video), categories and keywords are very important to book sales. Be willing to experiment to find the factors that increase discoverability.

8 personagens famosos da literatura que quase tiveram outro nome

8 personagens famosos da literatura que quase tiveram outro nome | Litteris | Scoop.it

Muitos personagens têm nomes tão bacanas que a gente nem pensa na possibilidade de eles já terem sido chamados de outro jeito. Mas acontece, e muito. Antes de publicar a versão final de um livro, vários autores acabam mudando de opinião sobre os nomes de seus personagens e a gente nem fica sabendo quais foram suas ideias originais. Para acabar com um pouquinho desse mistério, essa lista mostra oito personagens da literatura que quase ficaram conhecidos com outros nomes. Você imagina como ia se chamar o Gandalf ou o detetive Sherlock Holmes?

As estratégias ‘para o seu filho ler’: um estudo do contrato de leitura da seção infantil do jornal Zero Hora

As estratégias ‘para o seu filho ler’: um estudo do contrato de leitura da seção infantil do jornal Zero Hora | Litteris | Scoop.it

Este artigo investiga a relação que o jornalismo firma - através do estabelecimento de um contrato de leitura - com o seu leitor, mais especificamente com o leitor da seção Para o seu filho ler, do jornal Zero Hora, do Rio Grande do Sul. Para análise, optou-se pelo norteamento da semiologia de terceira geração (Verón, 2004), em que foram selecionados enunciados da seção a partir de um corpus de 111 exemplares. Nota-se que a seção está estritamente ligada com a lógica por qual a sociedade passa: processo de midiatização no qual as mídias têm papel na estruturação das práticas sociais.

8 Promises You’re Making to Readers—and Then Breaking

8 Promises You’re Making to Readers—and Then Breaking | Litteris | Scoop.it

A book is a contract between reader and writer. The reader is promising to pay attention to the story and emotionally invest in the adventure. In return, the writer is promising to fulfill certain expectations about the fictional experience. 

 

When we fail to fulfill this contract with our readers, we are, in essence, breaking our promises to them. These promises range from the big one at the top of the list (“I promise this will be a good read”) to a number of smaller ones along the way. Let’s take a look at eight common promises you may be making to your readers—and then breaking.
