I am interesting in publishing (as in books, e-books, etc). I think the field is rapidly changing due to e-books, print-on-demand and other factors and watching the change is quite exciting.
Unfortunately, I don’t have time or wherewithal to get into the topic seriously. So instead I dip into a sub-genre mailing list, get the feel for their challenges and recent advances and move on.
The latest list I am on is the ebook-community Yahoo group. It has some interesting discussions, but mostly I am ready to move on and come back to it in a year or so.
Except for one person holding me back: Marion Gropen, who I just discovered also has a blog always writes interesting posts. Her questions are to the point and her observations are well thought-out. I wish there was a way to subscribe to her conversations directly (rather than to the whole mailing lists).
So, if you are interested in publishing, you can do worse than subscribe to her blog and look out for her on the mailist list.
P.s. This is not a sponsored plug or bidirectional promotion link. In fact, if she does not find out that I linked to her, so much the better.
