YouWriteOn and The Bookseller Blog

Last week, I was invited to write a response to a piece on The Bookseller Blog about YouWriteOn's publishing scheme. My contribution has just gone up, and you can read it here.

Many thanks to all of you who provided information and helped with the research: naturally, I'm not going to out any of you here but you know who you are and your help is much appreciated.

I have two more pieces due to appear there over the next couple of weeks: they which discuss vanity publishing, self-publishing, and the growing involvement of mainstream publishers in such schemes. I'll provide links when they appear.

All painfully familiar problems, alas.

You're right, Buffy. And yet there are still many, many writers who still don't understand why or how these problems really are problems. Nor how they will be affected by them. Sad.
