Interesting Publishing Tale…

CAPTAIN BLIGH SCUTTLES MORDECAI SLATE NOVEL – Blogs – SFReader Forums.

 

I’ve linked Mr Whalen’s blog as an example of the sort of thing I think authors need to be wary of. For what it’s worth, most of my own recent stuff has been published in small press anthologies. But the attitude of the editor/publisher in this case was odd. If you want a book to sell, why wouldn’t you help the writer create what you envisage for the work? Why would you whinge when the author wants it to be the best? And why wouldn’t you allow some more time to pass to see if any changes work instead of going with immediacy and the wrong emotions?

This is a good read, worth a few minutes of your time. How did I find him? Well, we both appear in The Trigger Reflex.
