On The End Of Publishing

Yep, it’s that time of year again, usually before the Christmas period, where people begin to cry out and lament the end of publishing as we know it.

The book business as we know it will not be living happily ever after. With sales stagnating, CEO heads rolling, big-name authors playing musical chairs, and Amazon looming as the new boogeyman, publishing might have to look for its future outside the corporate world.

Generally, it’s only ever the filthy celeb-obsessed end of the book world that tends to be affected by such nonsense, so I’ll sleep all right in genre tonight.
