The Business Rusch: Pricing Part 2 Or (Discoverability Part 7 Continued)

 As expected, I couldn’t answer e-mails or work long on my blog last week. I may take that tactic this week as well, because you folks had a much better conversation in the comments than you would have had with me involved. Besides, I don’t like talking about pricing. Yet here I go with the […]

The Business Rusch: More Distribution Changes

This morning, my iPad Los Angeles Times app informed me that the creators of the TV show Veronica Mars had started a Kickstarter project.

< The Business Rusch: Understanding Publishing (Changing Times Continued) Kristine Kathryn Rusch As I mentioned last week, I’m going to finally examine the elephant in the room—the changes in my industry, publishing.  I realize that many of you reading this blog aren’t in publishing, but you do run businesses.  I hope that the blogs I […]

The Business Rusch: The Nook Inspiration

The Business Rusch: The Nook Inspiration Kristine Kathryn Rusch I had planned to write this week’s blog on the trip to Los Angeles.  (See why I’m not in Los Angeles here.)  Instead, I’m sitting in my office, fending off a very needy cat who couldn’t even handle the 36 hours we were gone.  I shudder […]
