Skating in here by the skin of my teeth. (And thank gawd I live in the pacific time zone!)
I've had a very crazy, extroverted week, so I'm just going to point your attention to a couple of items of interest I bumped into this week.
Since one of the aims of book promotion is to acheive high enough sales numbers that one can (presumably) generate a living wage, I thought science fiction writer John Scalzi's article on the down and dirty of writing income was very interesting and informative.
Also, believing that knowledge is power, I find this survey of advances that the romance industry pays, very interesting as well. I wish someone would do this for children's publishing. Anyone up for a project!
And lastly, lest you think I've completely gone over to the dark side of publishing (ie: money, money, money) here is a link to m0re of Josephine Damian's conversation with Donald Maass.
Until next week!
