Thought I’d do a wrap-up of a few news stories on books that didn’t make it into the weekly blog posts.
Here’s one from the New York Times:
Macmillan, the publishing company that owns Farrar Straus & Giroux and St. Martin’s Press, has a new standard royalty rate for ebook sales - 20 percent of net proceeds. (That’s 5 percent lower than other mainstream publishers.)
The Charlotte Florida Weekly interviews Carl Hiassen:
Apparently, if you write satire, you need to live in Florida. Hiassen just writes what he reads in the news, more or less.
Greg Bean in The Sentinel talks about the changing world of books and publishing, as well as the price war currently going on. He also talks about what he plans to do to save the hardback.
Have fun! Have a great Sunday!
