The Business Rusch: Free

The Business Rusch: Free Kristine Kathryn Rusch I just came across a terrible article on Galley Cat from the Media Bistro site. Galley Cat bills itself “The First Word on the Book Publishing Industry,” and Media Bistro, when it started years ago, was supposedly going to shed journalistic light on the publishing industry.

The Business Rusch: Promotion

  The Business Rusch: Promotion Kristine Kathryn Rusch Finally, a week that’s a little slower than some others on the news front.  Yes, there are some great blogs out there and some interesting news stories, but nothing earth-shattering.  Or should I say, nothing that can’t wait until next week.

The Business Rusch: Small World

The Business Rusch: Small World Kristine Kathryn Rusch Yes, I’m finally home.  I got home late Tuesday night and I’ve spent the day doing laundry, staring at my piled-up e-mail, and petting cats.  This column will not be that complex because I thought I’d have a day between getting home and writing the column.  Ah, the airlines changed that plan and left me with a […]
