Publishing and Promotion

  • A couple of interesting viewpoints over indie or self publishing success:

  2. Versus this in-depth opinion piece by Porter Anderson comparing our two recent huge book fairs – BEA and London, where London wins over with it’s large Authorsure Lounge for authors, and the BEA’s most successful author stall was purchased by a group of successful self-publishers.)

The Big Issue: Bullying, Racism and Misogyny in Writing

Note – this is an issue for all writing genres, although currently highlighted in the Science Fiction community. However, it’s not confined to writers – as a woman, and somebody of some ethnic origins, I’ve found similar everywhere I go. Australia has, over the past two weeks, also had to take another look at it’s own ideology, with racist comments within the AFL, and this week misogyny becoming a platform for political battles in two different instances. We all need to consider these issues as they remain real within our societies.
