Business Musings: Digital Growth: Indie Publishing (Year in Review 5)

Okay. I just spent an afternoon expanding my brain. And it’s painful. It really is. I investigated a few things that I had put off during the semester, and decided that I will dig deeper for some later blog posts that are not part of the year in review. I think there are some truly big and important changes on the horizon for digital publishing, […]

Recommended Reading List: October 2021

Totally insane month with a lot of legal reading—maybe 500 pages—which I find fascinating, but you won’t. I added Grisham’s latest to that, but it’s emotionally cold and didn’t have much of an impact on me. Okay, yes, all of Grisham is emotionally cold, but usually that suits the story. It didn’t here.

I have courageously decided to review the year 2020 in publishing. Courageously only applies to me because I actually dread looking at the numbers or the things I remember. 2020 has made me skittish and has forced me to believe everything is a disaster, even when it isn’t. I have already logged a few blogs in this series. I’m writing them and posting them on […]

Recommended Reading List: May, 2020

The weather has become quite lovely here, and I have made it a point to read every night on my balcony. I can’t tell you what a balm that has been for my soul. Much of what I’ve read I can’t recommend, including an Edgar-nominated novel that was supposed to be “gothic” and “feminist” and was neither. The heroine never did anything except get rescued […]
