Stop Press for April 4th

April 5, 2008

  • How not to do a publisher website – Lesson #1. If you (Faber) use a third party for order fulfillment (Foyles), notice when said third party changes URL handling, otherwise all your ‘buy this book’ links will FAIL.
  • HarperCollins Turns Page in Publishing – – New imprint promises no advances, no returns, no bungs to retailers. Which is very, very exciting *if* they can pull it off.
  • A Brief Message: No Resistance Is Futile – “Blessed and burdened with the most malleable medium in human history, we are overwhelmed by a surfeit of dross, battered by chatter. There are benefits to gain by adding, in the form of constraints, some resistance to the materials.”
