Branding and such in publishing. Michael Cairns has an interesting view. The money quote:

recommending that publishers consider marketing within these silos all titles available, rather than just those produced by the publisher.


E-book prices are looking like a barrier to the Sony Readers success. Especially if the word from the Bookseller is right.

A nice essay on the future of the book and defining that future

One thought on “Links of Interest (At Least to Me) 07/08/2008

  1. I was a little afraid of this with ebooks – fair enough I know i was probably being a little optimistic expecting to get new release fiction for around €10 a book but parity with presumably hardback/trade paper back prices? Nobody will ever pay that, even aside from DRM issues. Online sellers may accept smaller margins though, given there is no physical delivery cost or storage / picking costs. Obviously there are initial set-up costs though.I might wait to be a second-mover rather than an early adopter on this occasion! 🙂
