More On Current Day Publishing

Just picked up the recent issue of WIRED magazine in the mail - yes I am still getting paper magazines delivered to the house. Interestingly I also get this as a digital subscription.

In this issue there is a really good article on the publishing industry and things that are happening with authors and publishers. You have to read the article; The Plot Thickens by Evan Hughes, to reflect on the changes going on. There is one quote that I like:
At a time when a writer can post a novel online and watch the revenue pour in by direct deposit, the publishing industry's skill at making books, selling them by hand to bookstores, and managing distribution of the product threatens to become irrelevant.
 There are other great articles in this months issue so if you have a chance pick up a copy and read on.
