The Business Rusch: Anti-Published

I didn’t read my five newspapers this morning. I’m cranky about that. I love my newspapers. I read them on my iPad, and don’t mind the advertising at all, even though I accidentally click on the ads once in a while. (And please, don’t tell anyone: Occasionally, I investigate the product.) Which is way more […]

The Business Rusch: Out! All of You!

Those of you who read this blog regularly know I have a magpie brain. I find shiny things here and there, and then I put them together—not to create a nest (I have one, thanks)—but to help me form a realization or to figure out the solution to a problem or to reinforce things I […]

The Business Rusch: Deal Breakers 2012

I have a sticky note on my computer marked “Deal Breakers—by July 30.” It’s a reminder to revise the deal breakers article I wrote last year for the binder that Novelists Inc. give out at their conference every year.

The Business Rusch: Writers: Will Work For Cheap

The Business Rusch: Writers: Will Work For Cheap Kristine Kathryn Rusch Here’s something that has nagged at me since the start of the indie publishing revolution: writers—published writers—dismissing money as a factor in publishing their work. The argument goes like this: Traditionally Published Writer A says she’ll never self-publish. When told that her $5000 advance […]

The Business Rusch: The Old Stone Path

The Business Rusch: The Old Stone Path Kristine Kathryn Rusch Once upon a time in a land not so far away, publishing made sense. Okay, it didn’t exactly make sense, but there was a set way to do things. For writers, it was pretty easy. We wrote something, and mailed it to an editor who […]

Recommended Reading List: May 2011

Once again, I’m late posting my recommended reading list. I wanted to put this up in June. Fingers crossed that I’ll get the June list up before the end of July. (I have my doubts.) Anyway… I traveled in May and I had more deadlines than I even want to think about now.  But somehow […]
