~writers: you need to read this

Kristine Kathryn Rusch blogged today about the current state of the publishing industry.

If you write, and dream of ever being published (either traditional or self)  – you need to read it:

The Business Rusch: Third Quarter Blues

Then you need to think about the ramifications of Borders liquidation and Barnes & Noble shelf reduction.

But more importantly, you need to think about how you’ll survive as a writer over the next several years.

For some, the adventurous and the brave, this may be a new Golden Age for writers. For others, those who fear to stray from what has been the publishing norm, you’re going to need to hang on tight.

Looks like it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

  1. I don’t consider myself brave or adventurous, but I suppose when it comes to the New World of Publishing, I am.

    Good luck, and looking forward to see your work up at Amazon.
