Good luck, Stacey.


If I'm objective about the changes in the publishing business, I'd have to agree. Too many titles are tossed at the market every year, almost all without any announcement or publicity. It would be nice if publisher cut back on quantity and instead promoted quality.
But subjectively speaking, I'm very worried. You see, it's a practical certainty that they'll cut back to the most profitable authors, and we all know that they are rarely good.


After working in publishing...I can say you are 100% right. I truly hope they start going in this direction--they may not have a choice & that is probably a good thing!
